Question about Washing Machines
My Maytag washer quit spinning. It would drain just fine but wouldnt spin. Finding that the belts were rather glassy and worn I replaced them. While I was at it I went ahead and replaced the springs and glides. I tested it out by running the spin cycle without anything in it. It ran beautifully. Spun great, water pump pumping. When I added clothes and water it shut down completely on the spin cycle. and now it wont drain. I removed the Motor belt to run just the drain pump worked great. what is goin on?

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.
