I have MAH9700 AWM . It won't cycle to the high speed spin at the end of each cycle aboyt 25% of the time. If I ever wash things like jeans or towels with smaller items, it seems to allways happen. If I just wash a few items I have the same problem. When I wash very heavy items like a conporter, same thing. Anyone else have this problem? Maytag says "too Bad" nothing we can do. ??? HELP!!!
I don't want to put up with this for next 10 years!.

Re: Won't spin fast.
Sounds like motor control ..but three thing can keep it from not spinning .. Motor control- main control and or door lock... if just the spin cycle it may be the motor control..let me know what you find..

From my experience, the lower wash cycles are set to only do certain things. For example: the Delicate won't do a high speed spin, even though a high speed spin wouldn't really be destructive to delicates, but would force more water out of them! I usually just run a "Drain/Spin" after the Delicate cycle.
Possible there is no switching for the cycle from the controller or there is speed limited due to sensor action for vibration. Check the leveling of the machine, if not use rubber footing to hold the machine steady. Also check the drives for friction , if so reset and lubricate.
Sorry if it may be too obvious, but have you checked the philtre? generally they stop spinning when it's stuffed... when you open it, make sure you have a mop and bucket handy, some water will come out!
if its a direct drive , make sure the brake is releasing for starters, If the spin basket has difficulty getting up to speed, you have a slipping clutch. You can determine this by slightly holding the spin basket when you select spin.A rapid spin up to speed shows a "good" clutch. other things to check for are a broken coupler, or any item trapped between the drum and housing, ( which is what happens most the time, )
There's an auxiliary switch in the door lock.switch assembly that is activated at the end of the wash cycle for the machine to advance to the spin cycle. The machine will NEVER advance to the spin cycle unless the auxiliary switch is activated as a safety feature to prevent the door from opening during a high-speed spin cycle that may result in physical injury. The drum tumbles back and forth while the machine control checks the auxiliary if activated but since it's not, the control will not command the motor speed control to spin the drum at high speed. These symptoms may indicate a faulty door lock/switch assembly and may need replacement.

Make sure door mechanism is working at fine. So next is to check whether the motor tumbles both directions.
The spin bearing might be a problem, but normally you'd hear a problem here first. Have you heard any freight trains passing through the house in the spin cycle?
One thing to check for this problem is the spin speed switch. If the spin speed switch is bad then the control won't know how fast to spin, and so it will just not spin at all.
The drain pump must be draining all the water out. If the water doesn't drain out then the pressure switch won't read empty and that might prevent a spin cycle.
I hope this helps.

I've had the same experience with my Speed Queen washer. Approached the accredited Speed Queen agents for assistance, when tech support was deployed to diagnose the problem. In the end, I was told that the "timer" went bust. So the wash cycle seems to work 100%, but when it comes to rinse and spin the contacts on the timer don't make contact, and the motor waits in anticipation for it's next command, and that the high pitch noise heard.
genaral electric washing machine fills won,t spin but throws out water as if it did, goes to next cycle same thing, but sounds as if it is spinning but isn,t, hose not clocgged i checked, what else can be the problem,sounds ok but not spinning
tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent.
