Re: time remaining stays at 1 min for 20 min

This may happen if using the Super-eco program.

It is designed to extend the washing time / cycle, but is less intesive in rotations. It's more a long gentle soak than a quick scrubbing action.

Thank you for using Fixya! If this provided a solution, please rate as such. Thanks.

How long does it take in a full cycle of wash to dry

Depends on several things. How big the drum is eg 6 kg or 7kg .the spin speed... The material ie. cotton drys faster than woollen it a washer dryer or do you have a separate dryer.normal full load 6kg on a 1200 rpm spin of mixed fibres takes 1 hours 30 mins at 40 c then the dry time can take roughly 1 hour to 90 mins.

How do I get the door to open when still locked after normal cycle stopped with 1 minute left?

Try putting it through another cycle and see if it is still going to stay locked. That would seem like a timer problem. The door should only be locked normally, as I see it, when there is power applied to the locking solenoid so it should not remain locked with no power. You might call a maytag dealer and ask a sales or service person about this also.

Washer goes through 40 min. cycleand stays on 1 min. spinning and rinsing for another 30 min

your using way to much soap
during that whole 1 minute cycle it is detecting suds and trying to rinse the cloths further
cut way down on the soap here
you should be using 1 tablspoon per load
wash one load without anyy soap at all
this should help to reduce your suds lock

When the timer gets down to 1 minute left and the machine is on the spin cycle, it takes another 10-20 minutes to finish the cycle. The total 40 min. cycle takes over an hour to complete. Does anyone know...

The timer is only an estimate. pull the botttom cover of the front of the machine. There is a cleanout on the water pump, if its clogged it could be the cause of your timer taking so long

1 Answer

1 min remaining time takes 30 mins

The timer given a approximation of time left and because of balance the machine is fluffing the clothes to achieve a balance.

And for the guest it looks like you have junk in the pump. Need to access the panel below the door by removing the screws and getting a bucket, removing the large screw to the left of the pump and checking for debris in the filter, in the boot,behind the pump and look in the hole when the filter is out for damaged impeller or coins.

Long wash times

I've had this problem, particularly with towels - it's quite annoying & not energy or water efficient at all. According to the manual, the unit has a sensor that senses if there is too much soap & it will continue to wash until the soap is removed. I found that this happened frequently on the "cotton" cycles & max spin. I've tried to make sure I use less soap, but I also use the perm-a-press cycle & the spin 1 down from max. Hope this helps
