Sounds like a water pump problem. Please specify the exact model, and I will link you to the disassembly instructions.

Re: Maytag top loader 5+years old

In the right rear of the machine is the water pump. Because of the way the washer works, this pump turns in both directions. From what you are describing, I would suspect the pump.

Remove the pump and turn it by hand in both directions. I'm sure you will find that the pump sticks and squeaks.

I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

My maytag neptune washer smells musty. what is

I owned a maytag neptune washer and had to run dishwashing liquid thru it occasionally to get the smell to go away. Finally we learned about a new gasket retrofit that they were doing which was covered by the maytag company we called and they installed it for free and the smell stopped. I had that washer for about 10 years and probably spent as much fixing it over the years as it cost. I now have a whirlpool duet front loader and love it. no smell and not problems. Try the electric dish washer soap.
