Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9706

LAT9706 washer keeps filling tub; won't go into spin cycle

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.

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps

My LG front loading washer makes a train noise during the rinse cycle. What could be the cause?


if it is right after the drain cycle; it then goes into a spin. It then starts to fill with water for the rinse while the tub is still turning. The water entering the tub while the tub is spinning, cleans the tub of soap and the water going through the holes in the tub are causing the noise. It is normal if only in the rinse cycle.

Water will not fill during rinse cycle water just keeps runningg?


That is quite normal. When the rince cycle is on, it sprays water into the tub while spinning. In that way, it removes small traces of residule soap still on the clothes.Of course it should stop once the spin cycle is finnished.

Water not filling in tub washer spins,


It sounds as if the timer has failed internally. Spinning on each setting means the motor is not reversing and that reverse function is controlled by the timer itself. It would never fill if it is stuck in spin unless you select rinse and depending on cycle it can inject water in the spin during the final rinse. If your machine does this normally see if it injects water. If it does inject water at that point I am 95 % sure your timer is the problem.

Kenmore washer overflows during rinse cycle.


SOME OF THESE MACHINES HAVE TWO PRESSURE SWITCHES IN THEM, ONE FOR THE MAIN WASH WATER LEVEL AND ONE FOR THE RINSE WATER LEVEL. CHECK FOR A PLUGGED AIR PRESSURE HOSE FIRST AND THEN CHECK THE PRESSURE SWITCHES.

Won,t drain on rinse cycle


There could be several causes for this, but probably a bad timer. One test for this...when it stops...is to turn it off...and turn the timer slightly clockwise...to the middle of the rinse cycle...and turn it back on. Does it run then?? Try advancing it to the spin cycle after the rinse. If it runs okay after you manually advance the knob...the timer is probably defective.
