Maytag Bravos Washer stops in middle of spin cycle

We have a maytag bravos washing machine, #MVWX500XW0, serial #C03634353. Oddly enough the warranty just expired. When the spin cycle starts, it makes a sound that's hard to describe but you can hear it revving up then then sounds like it's going to slow down or stop then rev's up again and it does this several times until eventually the spin cycle stops altogether. When this first started happening after the lock light went off you could hit start again and it would drain fine. Now that doesn't even solve it. I disconnected the drain hose from the back and it's not clogged. I know some models have LED diagnostics that you can run to get clue at the problem but either we don't have that option or I'm just not doing it right.

    I just tried running the machine without any clothes in it and I noticed something else. At some point in the spin cycle it started filling up with water again and the lid lock light started flashing then went off. I was actually able to open the lid while it was filling. The machine should not be letting me do that. It should be staying locked. So now I'm wondering if this is part of the problem too.

SOURCE: maytag bravos washer stops cycle "f" code flashes

This isnt really a solution because Im having the same problem. The repair man that came said that is buildup of soap in the water line. I use my own powder soap, not h/e, and its not desolving and getting built up in the lines. Im not sure what to do to get it to stop doing this. He suggested cutting back on the amount of soap and running hot water through the lines which I have done for the last couple of days but I still have this problem.

It won't go directly to the drain pump, there is a filtering plastic screen beneath the wheel.

steps:

1: unplug the unit and open up the cover at the back
2.: you will see the bottom of the drum with a wheel connected to it, hold it tight (you'll need a helper)
3: while somebody is holding it at the back, go to the fron and you wheel the bolt on top of the wheel inside the tub, Un-bolt it
4: once the bolt is remove try to lift the wheel upward using the right left right left motion upward, do this slowly and carefully, remember do not turn the wheel JUST LIFT it side by side

then you will see if there a coin or whatever is blocking the drain, when you put it back, same procedure what you did taking it out only this time you PUSH downward

Why is my maytag bravos mvwb750wq washer so loud on spin cycle?


Is it moving around? I am guessing not so guess would be the drum is out of balance.

Maytag bravos model mvwx500xw0 will not drain and spin properly


This could be a lot of things. One of them is the belt on the bottom that connects the transmission to the motor, of course it could be the transmission/clutch.

My Bravos just stopped working in the middle of a cycle and now shows an F in the window. What's wrong with it?


Peace,
ngafm at your service!


Lets try this first!
Unplug the washer for 5 minutes and then replug and try it to see if this reboots the system like when a computer acts up, we do the same thing for most electronic devices!
If for some reason this is not helpfull, open the user guide and see what the tell you is the meaning of a code"f" on your specific machine!
How old is the washer?

I'm here all night if you want to write me back!
