Question about Maytag SAV515DE Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag doesn't seem to rinse.

I have a two year old Maytag SAV515DEWW that will go through the entire cycle on the dial but when you open the top at the end there is still water and suds in the machine (smell of bleach too if used). I can get the washer to drain by manually turning it around to "spin". It will spin and drain but I don't think it is rinsing at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Maytag doesn't seem to rinse.

Try this. Run the machine set for full load, short wash. DO NOT put clothes or detergeants in the tub. Water only. Let the machine agitate for 1-2 minutes. Gently advance the timer manually untill it locks into spin. Let the machine continue to spin until it stops on its' own and begins to refill. At this point lift the lid and see if there is any access water in the tub.

Most of the time this condition is caused by a blackage in the drain line. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked in any way.

Also, there are times when I've had to removes socks and other objects from the tub to pump hose. It only take a 10% block to cause the machine to retain water.

Kenmore 300 washing machine does not leave rinse cycle

This sounds like a bad timer. If the machine is several years old, the timer could be in need of replacement.

If you are handy, you can replace this device yourself and you should be able to obtain the part from any local Sears parts store or from the internet.

If you are not familiar with this kind of work, it would be best to have a technician replace the timer.

Runs great stuck on rinse cycle

ngafm to your rescue,

Yes it is in the dial and mechanism of the timer!

Things wear out! So is life!

Only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.

How old is the washer?Sounds old!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm

Belt squeek during rinse cycle

Mine the same concern, I took it apart and found the thermo fuse in the motor had a bad terminal. Maytag parts man said you must get a new motor even though the fuse has a part # on it and is easy to change. I made temporary repairs until I find a fuse from a used parts machine. Scott

Sounds like the 'Wash water' is not pumping out fully,You need to drain the water by lowering the empty hose into a bowl & check the pump for a blockage ( if the pump is an 'electric one' check that it is working). TURN POWER OFF FIRST
