Replace the lid switch. Open the control console and find the lid switch in the center of the console.

When starting the machine its starts washing without filling


This could be because the water level fill switch assembly is bad and it is telling the washer that it is already full of water.

It will not drain the water on the rinse cycle


If your washer does not drain you need to check this parts.
  1. Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the lid switch(some models)
  4. Inspect the water pump
  5. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  6. Inspect the motor coupler
If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess. If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

My Maytag washer is about 15 years old. Suddenly


Without a model number, but with the age, I can only assume that this is a Dependable Drive wash system.

This system utilizes a drive belt and a pump belt and it is recommended they be replaced together after every13 years of normal use. They are very simple to install with no teardown or tools needed. The belts have installation instructions printed on the package.

1. Drive Belt

2. Pump Belt
http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-a612-%3d%3di437300&PartID=437300

The pump belt must be adjusted to the tension requirements written on the package. See link below.

3. Parts breakdown/disassembly procedures.

Other issues could also cause the same symptoms but the belts at this age is the 1st suspect.

Water doesnt pump out to start rinse cycle


Seems the timer is sticking at the drain cycle. Manually move the timer and see if this helps. If this works then the timer is bad.

Maytag Performa will not drain


If this is a direct drive washer (no belts) you have a bad water pump or a sock has gotten sucked in to stop it up. get under it look for two hoses going to a white looking valve. If you pull the hoses look out for all the water to flood out so be preped. Pull the pump out and ck for sock or fuzz in it then try to turn to trun by hand if its hard its bad. repost if need more help.
