    Thank you, but this does not seem to be the problem. The machine works fine except it won't do a full spinning action. It seems like it could be more a problem of the drum off it's trolly or something like that. The last load before this happened was a light one, and the machine bounced around quite a bit on the spin cycle. Could that have broken something--or jolted the drum off it's bearings?

    I appreciate your help, but the solutions did not apply. The belt looks OK so rather than pay hundreds for a new transmission and $100 for Sears to come to my house just to tell me that, I am getting a new machine.

You need to check the lid switch to see if it's working properly. Before testing the lid switch, unplug the washer or shut off the power to avoid an electrical shock hazard.

Check the link below that you would have an idea how to test the lid switch:

http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/washer/check/lidswitch.php

If the washing machine works fine after bypassing the lid switch, then you need to replace it. If the washer is still under the warranty, take advantage of it and contact the manufacturer for free repair.

Have a great day!

Washer completes cycle 100% but then it restarts and starts filling all over again/ rewashes in essence


Dear William, I guess first you have to check if the start switch is shorted. When you turn on the machine, does it automatically go into cycle? If yes, then your start switch is faulty. Otherwise, you may have to replace your timer/sequencer.

Ge washing machine fills up with water on spin cycle


Sounds like the timer is screwed... Sending out the wrong signals and the dryer is doing the rinse cycle when it should just be the spin cycle. Do t know what your timer looks like in that washer but most now days look like the picture. 11_11_2013_2_52_52_am.png

My machine will not finish a cycle and just stays filled with water.


It sounds as though you either have a clog in the drainage system of the machine, or a bad drain pump.

Hello I have a Maytag Washer Model A512 The machine goes through a regular cycle OK - However, it DOES drains the water out during the rinse cycle, but does NOT drain the water out during the spin...


The timer will always advance to the next program if the machine does not fully drain. There is ALWAYS a spin when draining the water out, there is only one pump and one motor. The waterlogged laundry maybe telling the timer that there is still water in the tub. Put the machine on "Spin" and cheat the lid switch into thinking that the lid is closed. Use a clothes peg or wide ended screwdriver and see if there really is a spin....
