Question about Washing Machines
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.
