Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9706
During the rinse cycle, when the tub is filling up, the washer occasionally will not complete the rinse cycle. The water keeps flowing until I manually move it to the spin cycle. Someone told me this might be a water level regulator that might be a DIY project but my manuals don't show any part numbers or where to get at it. If it's not terribly complex, I'd like to do it myself, but don't know how to proceed without a manual that might identify the part and how to get at it.
Anyone have ideas on whether or not this might be the problem and how to DIY?
If you have a water selector switch thats adjustable it will ahve a regulator knob in front of the washer and be part of the controls. If its electronic it can be the sensor or board. See below.
As to how to get to it usually there is a panel that screws the dash (raised part) of the control panel and the back comes off or the front and sometimes the whole panel with further access being gained after removal of the dash.
If its a mechanical type it will have an air tube going to it and 2 or 3 wire terminals with at least 2 wires on it. Mark the color and terminal numbers down before removing them. Also the tub needs to be empty when you are replacing the switch to make it read correctly.
Here are some things on how it works:Water fill switches usually have an air tube that as the water level comes up the air pressure increases and causes the switch to go from fill to wash.
I have seen rodents chew holes in the air tubing and this could be the cause or you may have a bad switch.
Some times the switches also get out of calibration and need readjusting (especially if you have moved in altitude like up a mountain or into a valley).
If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesnt help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.
