    Does it even spin in that cycle? Is the water being pumped out or just retained in the washer?

    I am having the same problem. My washer would go into a super hi speed mode at the end of the spin cycle. It sounded like a jet engine moving up to speed. Now it does not go to that speed any more. If you find the problem let me know and I will do the same

There are two speed (or three) on most washer motors and what happens is that a motor speed will stop functioning--it will wash the clothes, but the high speed will not function. This also could be the controller, but more likely it is centered at the motor. It the motor is functioning, it coulfd be in the transmission of the machine--which may be the problenm since you heard a loud noise. I am not familiar with your machine, there could be an electronic switch for the transmission to go into high speed as well that has gone bad. I wish I had more direct knowledge of your machine.

I still use this washer but at the end of the final spin, the clothes seem to come out very wet, What is the cause?


Older washers have an adjustable clutch for the spin cycle.
You would have to look up your model.

My Maytag washer model MAV208DAWWmakes a loud screech at the end of the spin cycle, and the clothes are sill wet


That is the brake. Your clutch maybe wearing out. Or the belt maybe slipping because the rollers for the motor maybe wearing out.

Still wet clothes


It sounds like the high speed of your motor is not functioning which tells me it is either burnt and needs to be replaced, or that the control dial is malfunctioning. Because those motors have two or three speeds, usually one of the speeds of the motor is malfunctioning. Always check connections too, and see if it functions in the spin on another cycle. Best of luck. C

Broken washer/dryer


This sounds like a motor control board is faulty. Please load a couple of towels in the machine run it. Watch the machine as it goes through its' cycles.

1. Do the towels tumble when the machine is washing ?
2. When it begins to spin, does it spin one way at a fast pace or does it spin one way and then the other ?

Answering these two questions will help in troubleshooting your problem.
