Maytag washing machine won't drain or agitate

My Maytag washing machine filled with water and then did nothing. I had to bail the water out. It appears that there is power because the soak button lights up. Any ideas about a do-it-yourself repair?

Does the machine still fill?, if yes turn of when full then disconnect the drain pipe from the wast tube, using a bowl hold the pipe as low as you can to the floor, to see if the water syphons freely, if it dosent you have a bloct pipe or pump, so undo the pipes to the pump, and wast pipe and clean.
if it does run freely, put the machine to pump out, the listen for a humming or buzzing noise, if you do the impeller in the pump is jammed, so take out pump and clean, if no noise pump is dead or the modual board hs failed, renew pump or module.

Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. Check the pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump (like a stray piece of clothing) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no blades missing/broken and that the impeller spins freely. If there are any broken/missing blades or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it's just a clogged drain line, pump, or jammed impeller. Remember to disconnect the machine from electrical source before attempting any repair. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

hi Melanie.
this is all i could find out.
If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.

What is wrong with a washer that does not spin? If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor.

You are referring to the "agitator dogs". Does the unit run during the wash cycle put the agitator does not move?

My maytag mtw5600tq1 washer won't hold water. Its


Hi,
Its sounds like you have a siphon going on, this happens when the drain hose it too low during fill and as the water enters the unit it exits through the drain hose. To stop this the drain hose needs to be higher than the tub itself, meaning: raise the drain hose behind the washer to about control panel area. This will or should stop the siphon effect and allow the water to remain in the tub. If the drain hose is low this siphon will start again.
I hope this helps
