Maytag SAV405deww Runs through complete cycle and does not drain.

The washer will only drain at each cycle if you stop the washer by lifting the lid during the cycle wash and rinse. By stoping it works right, is this timmer issue?

SOURCE: Drain/Spin won't work unless lid is lifted up

Curdy, it almost sounds like your lid switch is loose or fractured and the lid actuator is not making the switch. Check this out first and post back...Catriver.

SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid

The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.

SOURCE: Maytag washing machine skips rinse cycle

Don't know how to solve it, but I do know that the Solution #1 is WRONG.

I have a 5 year warranty on my washer, but I hate people coming into my house. Background check or not, people are people.

Any ways, when they do fix my problem I will let you know. It's an electrical problem.

I know our electric meters are running, but all you have to do is put the washer on "SPIN" cycle, and it will spin and the water will come out. Or you can put your washer in RINSE cycle, since it did not actually rinse.

I was standing and I watched my washer fill 3/4 full with water, and the skip to "COMPLETE" all on it's own. It was suppose to fill all the way to FULL.

Thinking though, I have well water, and I have rust in my water, and I noticed that my water is pouring slower into the washer, maybe there is a clog with rust or something I'll have to clean the filter, but any ways, maybe the washers have a timer, and when it's to the time it should be complete, it skips to complete. It does take DOUBLE time for my water to go into the washer. I was standing there for several minutes.

Any ways, I hope that will help. My washer first did that a few months ago, it didn't do it again, I didn't think anything of it, then it did it again last month, and about every 2 or 3 washes, it does it. It's NOT the weight of my clothes! I wash mini loads and it does it.

The washer is not spinning well...Clothes are partly wet when cycle is completely off...it used also to leak at one time where we can see some water when the cycle is complete...


Hello, when the clothes are partly wet when cycle is complete then check these.
1. Motor coupler
2. Spin cycle

MOTOR COUPLER; To test the motor coupler, restart the washer in it's spin cycle,let the machine runs for a minutes and then open the lid and notice if the tub is spinning: if it's spinning when you lift the lid that means the coupler is fine and if it doesn't spin that means you have to replace it.
SPIN CYCLE: If the washer doesn't reach it's proper spin speed,the cloth may be wet at the end of the cycle,check to be if the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again,if the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt which you have to replace.
Thanks

Maytag Atlantis stopped mid cycle


Bad/worn/broken lid switch look at the back of the lid there is a little lid cam there that hits a switch,if this switch isn't engaging it will do just what you are describing.use a small screw driver to push the button in and see if it starts.

Goes through cycle, but doesn't drain. Will drain manually


Hi, Sounds like it could be timer. Does the timer advance to the off position? There could be a partial plug in the hose or pump also. You can add water again and then go to spin cycle. Lift the drain hose out of the drain pipe just enough that you can see the water flow. You should see water draining out with a bit of force and the stream should be the sizt of the drain hose.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can be of more assistance.

Thanks
Vic

Washer won't spin dry


Safety switch is not opening. When you leave lid up you are negating the safety switch which is activated by the door. Easy fix.

that's odd. the washer would not run in the spin cycle if the lid is lifted but in your case, it would run if you lift the lid.

check the lid also. it could have been damaged and the contacts were able to swap location or change status.

it should be close contacts when the lid is close and open when the lid is open. check the resistance.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Top loading Maytag washer Model #A9700 washer fills with water then stops, no washing, no spinning


When the machine worked would the machine stop in the wash cycle when you lift the lid? If so you might check your lid switch.

Check your lid switch, some machines stay running when you add clothes when it agitates, but will shut off if you lift the lid in rinse and spin, lid switch may be broken.
