No agitation on extra rinse cycle on Maytag Washing Machine MAV8557AWW

The manufacturer may have found there was little or no advantage to having agitation in the second rinse cycle so omitted it.

Maytag washer mav4757aww was agitating a little then would stop and make a slight humming sound. Now it won't agitate at all , it just hums and starts to smell like something is getting hot. It will...

Unplug the unit and remove the front panel and look at the space between the motor and transmission find the coupler that connects the two together this could be broken. You may have to lay the unit on it's back to check this out. It's a cheap fix if its the coupler. Let me know.

My maytag ensignia fills with water but stops after that. if you turn the knob to the next step, it will agitate but it wont go to the next step by itself.


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems that the Timer(part#7 in the picture) has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Also, check the Timer knob and if you hear a clicking sound then its certain that you need to replace the Timer as everything else seems to be working fine. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

My Maytag Ensignia washer is not spinning well. It bangs side to side with even the smallest loads. It seems like something is loose. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need a repair mans help....

Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...

Maytag washer MAV4757AW load squeaks during agitation only

You may have some bad bearing in the shaft assembly. i would take a look at this. also, if its not a direct drive, you may have a bad belt as well.
