Question about Maytag MAV7600 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Washer does absolutely nothing.

I have a MAV7600 washer which I bought at an auction for pretty cheap (aparently a dumb move). I hooked it up, and it doesn't work. Are there any common issues this machine is known to have, so I have a good starting point? I'd like to fix it, as it seems like a nice machine. I'm thinking that I should start with the door switch?

Re: Washer does absolutely nothing.

I would hope you have a VOM or DMM.

Check 10 amp fuse first. may be located near L1 black input from wall plug. If you do have a fuse then investigate for shorts and get a few fuses. (not all will have a fuse)

Set Conditions White Cycle/ Temp Control Off/ Water Cold Cold

With lid open 2 Red wires at lid switch to Grnd should be 120VAC (Red feeds water temp selection / Temp control). If 0 then your lid sw internal spring is no good. Red should always read 120 VAC with lid open or closed.

Close lid lid sw Yellow wire should be 120VAC to grd.This wire is motor feed line if Timer enables "T" contact. Motor is now waiting for timer to provide Path.

The "T" contact N to wire 16 provides a timer bypass.

YOu did not mention if the timer moves at all!

That should get you going!
