Question about Maytag Washing Machines
There are 4 common trouble makers to consider.
One is the switches; it can open circuit and stop the washer. For some reason Maytag has seen fit to discontinue the lock and latch as a complete assembly and will only sell it as individual parts new.
Second is water pressure. If the water pressure is low/poor, the washer will start to fill and then shut off. Check and clean the fill valve entrance screens and also check for any washer screens on either end of the fill hoses. There is a low water pressure fill jumper kit assembly part# 12001482.
The third is possibly the most common trouble maker for this type of a complaint. The fuse blows on the motor control board. This board can be found on the front bottom on the right side. Take apart info. The motor control board must be replaced when the fuse has blown. Most times now the motor control board is replaced with a motor kit - the motor kit Motor/control conversion kit.
The fourth is a bad start switch, sometimes the contacts in the start switch will arc and burn causing starting up problems.
