Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Hi Maytag LA612 washer. The agitator won't agitate at all. It fills fine. I can turn to the spin cycle and it spins just fine. I replaced the belts, in hope that those were the problem, but no change.

The belts do not give this kind of problem. ouplerWhen a belt is broken or worn, apart not agitating , the washer usually does not spin. One of the belts operates the clutch , if that was broken the machine may spin but not agitate.

Parts that can be involved are:

Drive motor : Hi Maytag LA612 washer. The - _.gifPS2017259

The motor is tested by energizing and testing the three switches that operate the motor, if one of them is faulty the motor may not operate when agitating. Here parts to test.
And diagram:

The agitator itself.
Any broken mechanic part in the agitator, as a retaining ring, or the shaft where transmission attach to agitator can cause the agitator not to work.

Here the diagram:



The transmission.
The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.

A wiring or control problem.
If you do not find anything else, check wiring, motor timer and timer board.

Hello, I have a Maytag Bravos MVWX550XW washer that will not rinse or spin, only wash. The drum moves. I replaced the washer inlet valve, did not fix the problem. Removed the lid switch assembly...


hi Melanie.
this is all i could find out.
If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.

What is wrong with a washer that does not spin? If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drive washing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle

Hi, I have a Maytag Alantis Washer (model: MAV


Does it not spin just in the final cycle or not at all during the wash cycle? Also, does the wash cycle agitate normal?

Agitator won't spin and water won't drain during spin cycle


Hi
Try these things first.
1) Verify a circuit breaker isn't tripped
2) Advance the timer control dial slowly 360 degrees-
If the washer starts spinning, then we know the motor and drive belt are fine but that there is something wrong with either the timer control dial or the agitator solenoid. Call in a professional for this.
If the washer doesn't budge, then verify that the drive belt(s) is attached and not broken by removing the back panel. If the belt is broken, replace it. If it is loose, then tighten it by loosening up the bolt holding the motor and moving it on its swingarm (much like a car alternator) until there is a 1/2 to 3/4 inch deflection in the belt. Some washers use reversing motors. It's possible the motor works on the spin cycle but not on the wash cycle. If so, call a pro.
3) Visually inspect the lid safety switch- Is it loose or cracked? If so, the washer might work intermittently, stopping at different cycles.
4) Check motor and drive belt- Remove the main access panel (usually in the back). Is the motor spinning, but the drive belt isn't? If so, then you have a drive belt problem. Go here. If the motor isn't spinning, then go here for washer motor troubleshooting.
If none of these tips resolve the problem, then there's probably a more serious problem with either the motor, the transmission or the agitator itself. If this is is the case, call in a pro.
Thanks for using Fixya.
