Perfoma washing machine won't go through rinse cycle.


I have a Performa washing machine that was working fine at our previous location. I moved to a new house and installed the washer and it works but it won't go through the rinse cycle. It just stops and sort of hums. Do you have any idea what it could be?

I also helped a friend move their front loader last week and it worked at the house but when we hooked it up at home we were having the same problem as I'm having with mine.

Many thanks,

    I also have a Performa washing machine that won't go through the rinse cycle. It just stops and hums. I have listened to the hum and seems to be comming from the water solonoid. If you undo the top back cover behind the timer there is a paper cicuit diagram for a reference. I am going to try and track down the cause in the next few days

After investigating the logic of the machine and how the timer works, I traced it down to the cold water solinoid rubber stopper It had crud in it and just hummed. After cleaning it out it ran just fine..
This is an easy fix.. If it cant run water it wont go to the next part of the cycle.
I hope this helps. I have more info if required.

Maytag_lse7804ace: washer won't fill with water. If I fill it by hand, the cycle works fine (until it gets to the rinse cycle, when it won't fill again).

Hello John,
The most probable reason the washer is not filling is because of a blown fuse that is part of the lid switch asm. By UNPLUGGING THE WASHER and removing the 2 INNER screws on the the control panel and the control panel can be rotated down to see the fuse in the lid switch asm. Here is where the fuse is on the switch asm. its circled in red 11_4_2011_1_39_54_am.jpg

My washing machine stops at the rinse cycle everytime. it is a hand-me-down washer that worked fine at the previous owner's home. not to mention this is the second washer i have received as a hand-me-down...

when a washer goes into the rinse cycle it only uses cold water,i think you have a problem with your cold water supply and if it happened to two washers it's not the washer.shut down the water valve,remove the cold water hose off the back of the washer,stick it into the washer and turn it back on.if no cold water comes out this will be your problem.

I purchased a Maytag Performa washer in 2003 and experienced the same thing. A service call found a loose electrical connection behind the switch panel. The washer has worked fine since.
Hope this helps.

Does not spin in most cycles

It sounds like your timer is defective.  If this is the case you will have to replace it.

Sounds like you may have a bad timer. They can work perfectly in one setting, and not work at all on an other. They can sometimes get a "flat spot" in one area that will stop them from moving or working. Good Luck!!! Jim
