SOURCE: Maytag washer won't spin out

Before you try to take the panel apart to remove the timer you need to check that the electrical connections to the pump are o.k. and whether the pump is getting power when it's time to drain. If you have to replace the timer you need to take the back panel off first.

SOURCE: Maytag washer, model: LAT8415AAE top loader. Washer fills with water but will not start agitating,spin or drain.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed

Replace the "water inlet valve" on your machine. If you could post your model number I can point you to the part you need.

Easy fix. Lid switch is bad. This is a direct drive machine. Older models would wash but not spin these latest babys won't wash or spin with the lid switch broken. To access te switch you flip up the control by using a putty knife to release each end. Older models had a screw that needed to be removed, not so with the newest ones. The switch has 2 hot wires and a ground wire. Jump them 2 hot wires and see if she runs

It sounds like this is a clutch and brake assembly problem. The clutch spring must provide the necessary pressure for the lining to turn with the hub and the clutch tab to push the brake cam driver and release the brake. The clutch spring of your washer must be weak or the clutch lining is worn causing it to slide and not release the brake. This prevents the tab that holds the clutch spring to force the brake cam driver, release the brake, and allow the basket to spin particularly when the machine is under load. This is manifested in the spinning of the drum when the machine is empty. The clutch and brake assemblies are located just below the tub and the excessive heat resulted from the friction between the clutch lining and the clutch hub.

Remove the thrust washer from the agitator shaft then remove the clutch and brake assembly from the top of the gearcase by removing the retaining clip using a screwdriver. Unsnap the clip and the clutch retaining ring the slide the clutch off the agitator shaft. Make sure to retain the washer located under the clutch.

Install the new clutch assembly on top of the gearcase then insert the clutch band and hold it in place. Using a pair of needle-nose pliers, place the end caps on the clutch spring and compress to insert into the open end of the band. Release the tension on the spring and the band will stay in place the reinsert the retaining clip on top of the clutch.

Probably the fill lines were reversed. The installation guidance tends to be poor.
