This is probably the motor going bad. The sensors wont cause this to happen. The start switch either, replacing all the sensors in the world wont make the motor be good again. But their is something you can do to try and make the motor last a while longer,their isn't any holes to oil the dryer motor so you must make some,using a 1/8th inch drill bit make a hole in either end of the motor where the bearings are (taking care not to hit the shaft), then add some hi temp oil such as zoom-oil, (dont use WD-40) and work the motor free as you can by hand. If this frees up the motor it may go a while longer. Also oil the rollers and check the slides to make sure they are not pinching and stalling the motor. If the motor can't reach top speed it will get hot,overload and stop.

Intermittent Start (expanded explanation)


Lint will jam the start/run switch on the motor. Vacuum out the motor real good and check that the switch moves freely, and all the wires to it are plugged in good.

How do you open lid on Maytag Centennial top load washer after it has started


Push the little rubber button which starts the machine and stand there waiting. In a few seconds it should stop and unlatch, push it again when you are ready for it to resume. Hold the button 3-5 seconds to cancel the wash cycle completely.

Forgotten how to turn it on. It seems to be set on timer. Oops


push stop button for a few seconds until it beeps or the readout changes. unplug,,,,,plug back in....push "Select" or "menu" button depending on which machine you have....push again and again until the program you want is on the display or readout. Then push the "start" button ....Don't push any timer buttons or arrows!

The sweep hands don't align back to zero after replacing battery


Pull out the stem to the second position then push the chronograph start/stop button a few times to move the minute hand to the zero position. Then pull the stem out to the 3rd position and adjust the second hand again by pushing the start/stop (top) button to move it to the zero position. Once you get them both to top zero push the stem back all the way and screw it in tight. Tim
