Does not begin cycle

Recently moved and the movers were rough on the machine getting it out of it's nook. was on it's side for a bit. Back tot he problem. The machine has a light humming/buzzing sound when it is turned on. The cycle does not begin. When the dial is turned to spin the machine spins, but as I said before the machine does not fill with water. I checked to see that the faucet was turned on propperly.

I have recently moved, the movers forgot to put the shipping bolt in my washer. I noticed the canister was tilted a bit when it was put in the new house. It still runs fine, should I be worried?


If it was hauled carefully and not dropped it usually is okay. Try loading it with a pretty full load of towels. If it spins up to full speed without excessive noise or vibration, everything is fine.

a broken spring in the drum support. Any moves like yours the drum should have been packed out to prevent any movement.

Look for a rubber buffer ( some models) it may also be missing. The spind cyle is more continuous in its direction of movement than a wash cycle back and forth which places foorce on the weaker side. It might even be possible to get this fixed unde3r warranty if you don't say YOU moved it 600 km over bumpy roads. It's only just started to do this. right? wink wink!

Recently moved and now my washer sounds like it is going to take off!


If you hear an high pitched noise or rumble that becomes louder when spinning at speed, then you may have dislodged the drum bearing or broken the drum bearing spider.

The part is located at the back of the drum.

Maytag washing machine gets out of balance

Maytag uses an auto balancing mechanism, based on the rear legs. These legs should move freely. Lay the machine on its side, and try to move the rear legs. If they won't move and appear rusty, then spray penetrating oil on both legs and move them until they move freely.

During the spin cycle if your cloths are too heavy on one side you will get this problem, reposition the cloths and it should cure the problem, at least thats what I do when my machine gets to shaking.

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
