Problem Magtag TL

Hi, My three year old Maytag Nuptune TL works fine when empty. But when I add cloths within the washer and run it. It runs but starts surging in periods of 30 seconds and stops. When the digital timer get down to the spin cycle with 12 Minutes leftthe washer shuts down and the digital read out reads UC? Also when it starts to spine the washer starts to shake badly? This all just started. We have already paid an appliance repair company over $300.00 dollars and he was unable to fix the problem.

Thank you,

Jerry Jones

Re: Problem Magtag TL

UC means the washer cannot spin. There's a bulletin out this.
The clutch is likely the cause of these error codes, preventing the unit from spinning freely. A new clutch was introduced in production in March 2005 to improve performance and should reduce these error codes.

1. Visual verification can be made of a malfunctioning clutch by observing the lifter operation in spin. The lifters will rotate up to one complete rotation just prior to the tub starting to spin counter clockwise. Should the lifters continue to rotate while the tub spins, examination of the clutch will be necessary.

2. Inspect the 14 wire plug in the control console for loose red\white- pink- blue\white from the P3 connector. Also inspect the wires and connection point on the Tub Displacement Sensor for corrosion. Measure from PK to Wh/Bu at the P3 connector. The voltage should be approximately 1.5vdc when the tub is centered, 3vdc when the tub is pushed to the right rear of
the cabinet and 0vdc to the left front. Any variances of these voltages, the 14 pin harness connection, tub displacement sensor, and sensor connector should be checked.

Maytag Top Loader Thumps When In Spin Cycle

My guess is that one of the three counterweights have separated from their support. Probably rusted away.

Clothes are sooaking wet when cycle finishes and they smell bad

The wetness is due to the spin cycle either not working properly or not being allowed to finish. For the smell, with the washer empty, run a cycle on hot/whites with bleach only, after the first cycle drains, open the washer and add more bleach directly into the washer.
