Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag A183 and it will randomly fill up with water. We won't use the washer for a day or two and it will have several inches of water in it. We have to turn the spin cycle on to get the water out. It doesn't happen all the time, maybe once every couple of weeks.

    Thanks for the response, I'm assuming that the water supply valve is the same thing as the water inlet valve description that I found on a parts diagram? Thanks again.

You have a leaking water supply valve that is allowing water into the tub while not running-try unplugging the power when not using and see if it still happens-this would eliminate a problem with the controls messing up-if its still doing it you could shut the water off at the wall between loads and replace the water control valve at your leisure-cheers Denny

underneath the agitator is a graphite seal ring and nut that seals the inner tub and the outer tub. a suitable spanner wrench or a 6 inch channel lock plier will remove this locknut. replace the seal.

Went through the same routine, first repaired the upper control board R11/Q6 issue and replaced wax motor.
Worked for a couple year and quit again so I bought a new board, close to $300 I think it made a huge difference I think they changed the programming to spin out better.

    Maytag ensignia top load washer will not fill with water at start of the cycle?

    The drain hose has to be at least 30 inches above the floor or gravity will drain the machine. Also: If the water hose is jammed into the drain a siphoning affect will occur in some instances.

    My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its

    Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
    I hope this helps

    I have a Maytag A183 top loading washing machine. It recently starting making a loud buzzing noise when you first pull out the knob to start it. If you turn it off and on a couple of times, the sounds...

    That loud buzzing noise is your water fill valve. First turn off the water valves to the washer and unscrew the hoses and check that the filters are not corroded or clogged. I had a maytag washer that was doing the same thing and finally the lid switch and timer had to be replaced. I would unplug the washer and remove the screws along the upper rear cover behind the timer assembly and check that all connections are secure. Unplug them then plug back in if neccessary. Then put the cover back on plug back in and try it.

    If it still does it you might need the water valve replaced.

    My Maytag Neptune will not go into the spin cycle, instead the letters "nf " come on the display. What can I do to prevent this and to have the cycle completed?


    NF = No Fill the control board receives signaling for the washer during the water fill cycle. With most cycles the depth of water is around 3.5 inches in the wash basket. I know a Bulky Wash cycle selection will fill the wash tub to a high fill which is about 7.5 inches of water in the wash basket.

    Is the washer filling the machine with any water? Do you hear water entering the machine? If you are doing a cold water fill and there is no or very little water in the wash basket with the NF error code. Try a Warm or Hot fill and see if the machine will fill and start the wash cycle.

    Assuming you are doing cold water wash loads. You could have a water line block at the inlet screen or a failed cold water inlet valve which will not open. Try the above and let me know the results..........Rich

    Maytag washer doesnt fill with water. after about 3 inches of water in bottom, it starts draining out.

    pull the drain hose out of the wall
    it should only be six inches in the wall
    or will create a syphone and the washer will continue to fill and drain and fill and drain
    try this and let me know how it goes

    HE3T Kenmore Frontload Washer Random Draining Problems

    The water pumped goes right back into the machine. It may be because the washer is siphoning the water from the laundry tub with a slow drain and back. Your solutions are advised but try this also:
    1. Check the pump impeller for obstruction.
    2. Cut the drain hose into the laundry tub in excess of 4 inches.
