Maytag MAF 1260 AAW - hums and does not expel water or spin

Maytag MAF 1260 AAW - hums and does not expel water or spin. To Test, I have unhooked the water out hose and put it directly into the floor drain. Now when filling up - water just drains out... Is this normal?

I think the pump is bad, jammed up with something, or just stuck. You said it was humming. It seems to be trying to work. You will have to go in there and see. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

    That was it! Pulled the pump out and found two 10 cent pieces, now working normally. Thanks Danny!

SOURCE: Won't Run

The humming usually means the motor is trying to start but can't either because of weak windings or not enough electrical power. Need to check the motor control.

SOURCE: Will fill and drain, not agitate or spin though

I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine.  I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain.  The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.

SOURCE: new inglis washer expells water when fills

seems like no one wants to send you any love Richard. Well fear not, if you haven't figured this out yet, I'll do what I can. It seems to me that you have the drain hose lower than the top of the wash basket or a hole in that hose. If the drain hose is too low, the water will run out of the machine due to low center of gravity. Ideally, 6" above the level of the tub is sufficient. If there is a hole in that hose, replacement is pretty straight forward.

Maytag mvwc6esww1 motor hum


There is a good chance that the hub and seal need to be replaced. The Direct drive coupling might be the problems too. I looked at some Maytag parts seller and this part (hub and seal) seems to be unavailable. Have a qualified person opens the front panel and check the direct drive coupling. If the coupling is good, your are left with the hub and seal or the transmission wich is too expensive.

Maf 1375 AAW front loader washing mahcine - water wont drain out???


Remove the back access panel. On the bottom of the tub you will see the drain boot. Remove the boot from the tub and check for any blockage. Also, while you have the boot removed, check up in the tub for any small pieces of clothing that may be hung up in there.

Washer does not remove water in final spin


If washer hums when it should spin, and the washer will not drain, you may have 2 issues.
First check that the drain pump, drain hose, and wall drain are free of debris.
The washer may not spin properly if the drain system is not operable.
Once you are sure the washer drain pump, drain lines, wall drain, and drain hose is okay, run a test wash.
If the washer hums but now drains, you fixed one issue.
If the washer still hums, you may have a bad belt, motor coupler, motor itself, etc...
Check parts for wear and replace as necessary.I pulled the drain impeller and found a sock from my little guy stuck in there. Fixed!
check all water outlets to make sure there is nothing blocking the pipes.

Whirlpool ultimate care II will not spin


You said,washer is full of water and will not spin. You hear the lid switch clicking. When you start it on spin cycle and hear a hum, the tub moves a couple of inches and then stops...shortly after it shuts off.


Some reasons this may happen
Washer won’t drain or spin
n
1. Is the drain hose clogged, or the end of the drain hose
more than 72 inches (183 cm) above the floor?
2. Is the lid open? ............Also the lid switch can be faulty!!
The lid must be closed during operation.
3. Is there excessive sudsing?
Always measure detergent. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
4 If you have very soft water, you might need to use less
detergent.

Sounds to me like the lid switch can be faulty!!Then it acts like the lid is open.
Huuum

Dehumidifier emptys in the floor.


Check the float first - be sure the styrofoam on the bottom is still intact.  Be sure that you can move it up and down freely (and easily) with the bucket out of the machine.  If that is not bound up, and the foam is in place, next check the switch in the dehumidifier itself.  It's directly behind where the float goes - the way to test it is to turn the dehumidifier on and push the metal tab in with your finger.  The machine should cut out immediately - if it does not - the microswitch needs to be replaced.  (they're very cheap, and simple to replace)

Washing machine will not drain


Please fill your washer with a very small amount of water, turn it to spin and tilt it back. You should be able to see the belt on the bottom turning your pump. I ask you to verify this because imporper belt tension or a bad thrust bearing can keep it from turning improperly. If it turns freely on this test, Then you have something plugged up. Drain the water out. Next unhook the hose that goes between the tub and the pump at the tub side. You can get sock or other small articals of clothing in there that will prevent draining. If that is clear. It is likely you have had another coin go through your hose that goes between the pump and the wall. They can get quite a ways in there and maytag hoses get smaller right before they end. If you have a coin in this area you will need to work it all of the way back to the pump side of the hose.
