SOURCE: Maytag washer will not cycle.

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Replace the "water inlet valve" on your machine. If you could post your model number I can point you to the part you need.

SOURCE: Washer immediately goes into wash cycle when

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Hi, I have a Maytag Centennial washer. We recently experienced a power surge in our home. The washer does everything it should - except cycle. Could this be the time motor? Thank you! David


depending on your washer model it is most likely in some events of a power surge that the timer knob could be damaged and need of replacement

Maytag top load washing machine repair


Hello,

It sounds like your Maytag (now owned by Whirlpool) Actuator needs to be replaced. Last year our Maytag Centennial top loading washer Model MVWC300XW0 would not drain all the water and cloths would be soaking still. Doing some online research, I came across some very helpful video regarding replacing your Actuator.

The only thing I would recommend to future installers is get your Technician Manual located just inside the case (front panel) first of your Washer. The Technician Manual is taped inside your washer in a plastic bag. Once you replace this Actuator part, I recommend that you run the Calibration cycle on your washer. It is needed anytime you replace a motor, motherboard or pump.

Here are two videos describing how to change/replace the Actuator but these videos are basically for the MVWC300XW0 model. I'm sure if you search for your model, there will be other videos as well.

Two videos on how to replace your Actuator:
1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVjTY-Hj4jw
2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTHryoT78pA (This is video that I viewed the most)

Best of Luck!

Our Maytag Centennial Electric dryer is not cycling in auto dry mode but will in timer mode. Any thoughts?


There is a sensor that the clothes have to touch when the drum spins. This sensor measures how wet the clothes are. If you don't have enough of a load in the dryer then the sensor wont detect the dryness. Or it could be a bad sensor or connection or main board.

Coninuosly repeats spin cycle, any suggestions how to remedy this? I have to manually cancel the cycle in order for the machine to stop recycling through spin


I had a Centennial washer on a service call doing this just the other day... After putting it trough diagnostics I found no errors and all the washer's mechanics tested okay. After resetting the control by putting it trough the diagnostics mode it continued to repeat cycles without restarting the washer.
  • Try running it through diagnostics and see what error codes are in the memory. (Guide is linked below)
  • What are the codes? do they give any more clues?
  • clear the codes and run a test cycle.
  • does it work?
  • if it checks out properly with the diagnostics it's probably a bad control board...
Maytag Centennial Washer Diagnostic Guide
If it does turn out to be the control try contacting Maytag (Whirlpool) for a parts concession... Whirlpool customer service guide is linked below.
Hope that helps! Good luck!

Wash cycle will agitate 3 spins then nothing for a few minutes then 3 more and nothing again and repeat over and over


you may want to put it through a diagnostics cycle and check for error codes... Maytag Centennial Washer Repair Guide
The tub sensor can cause the washer to act strangely like that. Also there are two mechanical styles of washer branded Maytag Centennial. The model number would help to know we are talking about the one I think we are talking about.
Hope that helps!

Maytag centennial washer not working properly in Normal cycle. After it shuts off there is still water in the bottom of the tub. I can move the dial to another setting such as Casual cycle or Heavy Duty...


We have the same problem. The Normal cycle still works, but after the final spin cycle, water is again added (1 gal est.) and the machine stops. Problem occurred after washing an old 25 x 30 inch rug which partially disentegrated when washed. We were seeing particles of the rug in subsequent wash cycles during drain into laundry tub. Don't know if something is plugged in the washer or if it is something else. In another load after the rug wash, the top of the washer was lifted during the wash cycle. The water problem occurred immediately after lifting the lid as the wash load went through remaining cycles. Maybe this affected the timer? Maytag customer service suggested unplugging power cord to re-set timer. This didn't make any difference. We need a technician to tell us if this is a timer problem or something else?

Maytag centennial washer - power went out while washer was operating. When power was restored the washer does not cycle. I have to turn it manually through the cycles.


Set the timer to any off position. Unplug the unit for 10 minutes. Plug it back in and try that. The worst thing
you can do to a Maytag washer is advance the timer yourself...hope this helps.
