Why would my Amana washer not do anything but fill up with water. Nothing will function at all on all the cycles but the fill. It doesn't even click on the timer when you try to set to any setting exc

Hi Kirby
First... Caution
Because your dealing with water & electricity it can be lethal to fiddle around inside. That said...
Washing machines are controlled by a master timer unit, usually mechanical, but rotated by an AC Clock motor. If the timer is not getting voltages to the various Switches around the "timer unit" or "clock motor" then the individual selected functions won't work.
Manually Rotating to a particular function then Activating the On/Off Push/Pull switch should start things happening even if timer motor is dead. So
If your OK with AC electrical goods then open it up.
Connection wires may have fallen off or something simple. A multimeter is your best friend here. Look for the big rotary clock behind the main control dial. Listen for the clock motor running. The main Push in & out Button is the On / Off switch. Check that its got AC on the input wire & switches across to the other wire when the knob is pushed in / out. This may be the problem...

You can always call an appliance repair technician!
Good Luck

The problem is that the dial goes around for the setting required and water fills up, but the agitator doesn't move.

Can you provide a complete model number? If this is a top loader check the lid switch. You should hear a click just after opening and a click just before it's closed.

Have a Maytag washer LAT9635AAE. It fills with water and does not proceed. The timer seems to move the dial around but doesn't engage the washing functions. At first I thought it was simply not...

Remove the timer and get the outer skin off of it. Twist the timer around and hunt for burn marks on the barrel. I suspect it is the timer. To get it off you pop the cap on the knob and under it is a keeper and spring you remove. Then the knob and skirt will come off and you can get to the screws which hold the timer to the consolethemobilian_29.png
If the timer turns out to be ok then the motor is suspect.
Note: This washer is well worth repairing. Anything out there on the market now is trash compared to this machine. Invest in repairing it. You will be glad you did.

My washing machine Whirlpool AWM049 has just developed a fault. Whatever program it is set to the dial turns, then when the dial reaches the position where it is supposed to fill with water it just stops....

I have the same problem. The dial does not start on the setting you set it to. It just clicks around then stops. I called out an engineer who said he thinks it is the control panel panel board. Didn't know if he could get the part which would be expensive. I was hoping someone would have the answer.

I have a 15 yr old Whirlpool washer that has run great. During a cycle, it stopped full of water. I moved the dial around to different areas pushing it in and out and got a cyle to run long enough to pump...

Not always a Timer issue. could be stopping at the cold fill part of the cycle which is the 8 o clock position on the dial. This would be fault with the cold fill vavle.

My washer filled up with water during regular beginning cycle and once fill washer just stopped. I feel like this happened before and it was something that may have gotten stuck in the drain??.....I move...

Hello LazyOne

The motor is locked out until the water level requirement is met. The level selector switch is probabably having issues, try rotating it back and forth between small / medium / large loads. If it starts to fill on larger load sizes, it will be the switch itself. If it doesn't do anything at all, it could be the switch, but most likely it is the level sensor. Both are located in the compartment behind the controls panel.

Do you hear the ticking of the dial moving? if so it could be that the points aren't getting connection to cycle it threw the various cycles
