Maytag Top Load Washer MAV6000

I have a Maytag Top Load Washer that will not automatically spin and empty out the water, and sometimes if will not agitate in the rinse cycle. However, if I hold up on the knob it will work. I have replaced the knob and the spring, and I still have the same problem. Thanks for your help.

In the console behind the knob is the timer. there are several contacts inside the timer that tell it what to do. one of thoughs contacts is bad. you need to replace the timer to fix the problem

Wont spin

If it's NOT a direct drive machine, then your problem is most likely with the Wig-Wag switch, located on top of the gear case! It ALWAYS goes bad and effects the Spin function.

Motor will not spin both ways

Starts fine then stalls, I would check the belt,gear case and also for a seized pump bearing. Pull the machine out and remove the access panel with a 5/16 socket and put it into spin, try to watch as you start the cycle. Then if you don't see any problems tilt the machine back and examine the belt for wear, glazing, cracks and rotate the belt to find any frozen items, gear case and pump.

Maytag top load won't drain

during spin is the tub making a slight roaring sound? if so the tub bearing is going bad causing the motor to work harder than normal causing it to heat up. this motor has a thermal protector which shuts it down , although the power to the timer remains therefore the timer still advances. this will require a new bearing and seal kit.
