This problem doesn't sound right, but you could have a bad moisture sensor.

I purchased a Maytag Performa washer in 2003 and experienced the same thing. A service call found a loose electrical connection behind the switch panel. The washer has worked fine since.
Hope this helps.

Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.

I have a maytag performa dryer wont heat up sometimes


Hello there:
If there is no heat or heat sometimes please try these solutions
Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.) Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

My dryer is taking to long to dry clothes and the setting dial moves very slowly if at all.


Make sure the exhaust vent is free and clear. Lint build-up can cause it to take longer to dry clothes. Also, try putting the timer on another setting to see if it makes a difference. If you are using "Auto", try putting the setting on a manual time setting to see if that helps. You may have a bad timer or bad moisture sensors.

Leaves clothes very wet and soapy


Your pump is clogged. This stops the machine from spinning out or rinsing. You have to locate the thing, (comes under the tub, lower end of big black tube) take the clamps out to clear the muck. Refit as you have dismantled. First try to drain out the water completely or you will flood your room.

Maytag performa dryer takes a long time to dry clothes on auto


What you have is a obstructed dryer vent. If you remove the vent hose from the unit you will see moisture inside it. This is why your unit isn't drying. If the heater has no air flow the overload is tripped. Check your vent for any blockage most of the problem is at the outside end of your vent. there's a flap or chicken wire you may find the obstruction there. Or you can use a leaf blower connect it to the inside vent, cover the outside vent with pantyhose. ( so you don't get lint allover your yard ) and you can clear your like that way. Good luck hope this helps

The lint is not being washed from machine. All dark clothing has lint residue. How can I rectify this problem please? Currently my husband using damp cloth has to wipe over black clothing extensively prior...


the self cleaning lint filter seems to be clogged. before you replace it try this cheap/ easy remedy.
  • run a load with no clothes on high water level, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
  •  no soap. 
  • do an extra rinse after to make sure you rinse all the bleach away before putting more clothes in.
the lint filter may be defective since it has always had this problem, but its worth a try.
