Check the drain pump, located under the machine. It might have something stuck in it. coins, toothpicks etc can cause this. Unplug the wiring connector, remove the three screws and two hoses. Usually junk gets caught in the inlet

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.

Hi

When you hear a humming sound from the motor it means that the motor control is bad and should be replaced. If you still want to test the motor control then you can take it apart and test the motor before replacement. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Maytag bravos x econocserve wont go through all the cycles and then you have to select the drain and spin to finish the clothes


You may be over sudsing the machine and it thinks the water is not drain and stops. Run a empty load on a cold water cycle and not hot water. then cut back on the soap. if you use fabric softener the cut back even more.

Maytag Bravos XL HE Leaks Adjacent to Bleach Dispenser, how do I fix this?


Fill it with water by hand and see what happens. Tape paper towels in the suspected area. Makes it easier to see. Part 2 ans: so the water is over powering the drain...that sucks. You are right, the valve is probably letting too much water out. I don't know if it is adjustable but I do know it'll probably cost a lot for an itty-bitty brass valve. If money is not a problem replace the valve. If you are a DIY'er, I'd try to use some sort of clamp on the hose leading into the dispenser and close it just enough to slow the flow down. Another idea is to open the drain up by cutting away some of the screen if it has one. A better source than me is to go to repairclinic.com and email them. They have a lot more experience than me. I did appliance repair as a side to handyman for 20 years & fixed just about everything for 50. I never had any formal training.

Just got a new maytag bravos washer and it will not go past the sensing stage and as it puts water into the washer it drains as fast as it goes in


You must make sure the drain hose is above the water level and not in the water in the "P" trap of the house drain. There must be air to prevent siphoning. The drain hose should not go more than about 12" down in the drain tube.

My bravos top loader will not fill up with water. The water drains as fast as it is trying to fill up. As a result, the wash cycle never completes.
