Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi I have an older stackable maytag washer/dryer. The problem is the washer fills and then stops. Last time the problem was a baby sock stuck in the pump, so I'm trying to remove the pump to check for a clog and can't get the sucker out! How do I do this? Also, why does this keep happening? I've cut my load size way down!

SOURCE: Stackable Washer Dryer won't fill with water

first thought would be water soleniods but it is unlikely that both would fail you could try just selecting one temp and then swaping hose and select the other temp if it wont work on either then i would think it is not a sol. problem, lid switch could cause it not to fill also but you did say it would spin so that will rule it out ,its coming back to a module problem ,something to ponder on

SOURCE: we lost baby socks and

seen this a few times in the field if you gain access to the drain pump area of the washer which is on the bottom you will see the plastic pump and the tub hose that goes to it and then the hose going from it and to the wall drain.. check the hose from the tub to the pump and then check the pump assembly area itself.. it will be in one of the 2 places.. beware there will be water in these hoses so have a shop vac or a few large towels to catch the water and slowly remove the hose so that it does not all come out at once.. if there is water in the tub you need to get as much out as possible or it will all drain on floor when you remove hose.... good luck to you..

Stackable washer dryer

there's a water pressure switch that when the water fills the pressure switch gets satisfied and then stops the water and then sends power to the timer or board depending on what machine you have,if the switch doesn't close the washer will just keep filling.the switch could be bad or also there's a clear plastic hose that goes from the switch to the side of the tub,sometimes detergent or or junk that can form in the hose can cause this,i use a plastic tie or a paper clip ,pull off the hose where it connects to the tub and clean it out with the paper clip,if you have an older machine you can blow gently into the hose and you'll hear like a click sound from the switch,if the hose is clear most likely it will be a bad pressure time send the brand name and model number so whoever is helping you can look up your machine.all washers are not the same

Maytag stackable top load wash maching - will fill with water but then nothing. It just stopped.??

Hi. Listen for an audible click as you just open and close the lid. You should hear a micro-switch. If you do not hear that click you most likely have a bad lid switch. A bad lid switch on a Maytag washer will still let it fill BUT, it will not agitate or spin.

If you hear a click then there are other things to that can cause the symptom that it would spin but not agitate.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a stackable Maytag. The water will not

I had a similar problem I just fixed. There is a fuse inside that keeps the water from filling if it's blown. Might try changing that first.

Maytag Washer/Dryer stackable

well i am having about the same problem, but mine won't even fill, the dryer works but the washer won't fill or turn on at all. my husband had it all apart, too the control assembly to parts place and they said that hardly ever goes bad so it is still sitting unusable with no answer or money to spend on it in site.

Maytag Neptune Stackable washer continues to fill with water when unit is off

If the machine continues to fill even after the power has been switched off, this sounds like a stuck inlet valve. To identify the valve, look at your model in the "parts store" section of Maytag's website. The valve is item 21 on the "Control Panel, Top & Lid" drawing. From the drawing, the valve looks like a fairly standard item; I suspect you might get something suitable a bit cheaper elsewhere. A
