Question about Maytag Washing Machines
It also does not spin out the water. It appears to pump out most of the water, but the clothes are still quite wet.
SOURCE: washer doesn,t spin
Looks like chat support session must have timed out. The answer to your last question was, yes, pres. analog switch with a red, a white, and a blue wire to it.

The start of the spin cycle is dependent on the pump pumpin out water and the later level switch sensing that the water level is low enough. The water level switch has (usually) a clear tube connected to it and is found in the control panel. You will want to check continuity at different times. First you will fill the tub to the highest water level. Then unplug the machine. By screwing in the screw on the water level switch. Scew it all the way in. then you will check continutity. there should be no cont. between green and brown. and there should be cont between green and black or yellowblack. Do this continuity test with the wires off the switch. Once this test is complete, reattach the wires and plug in the machine and set the timer on spin or drain. When the tub is pumped dry, stop the spin cycle and unplug the washer and do the continuity test again. This time you should have continutiy from green to brown. and no continuity from green to black or yellowblack. Now when i mention the colors that means the placement where those wires were. Make note before you remove them so that you can get them back to place. If you do not get these readings, the water level switch is bad, or there is a leak in the air pressure tube leading to it. At that point I would replace the entire switch and tube. I wish you the best of luck.

Again I shooting in the dark because you have not given any details of model, but typical maytag has a belt or two under neat; one for the pump and one for the drive mechanism. If the belt for the drive is stretched or glazed and slipping, you need to replace it and possibly adjust the tension of the motor cradle. If the is not the problem or does not solve the problem, then you have the big problem of the trans drive worn and if the unit is old, you may want to buy a new machine. You can ask some repair service places the cost to replace the trans drive so you better know where you stand or you can attempt it yourself but it is not for the first timers. Good luck, Mascgivor
