Maytag top load won't drain

I have a 7 year old Maytag "Ensignia" Top load washer that doesn't drain all the water out in the final rinse about half the time. The timer goes to the end but the washer remains full of water. I can manually turn it around to 'spin' again and it drains fine. Sometimes it does it on the first load of the day and sometimes it won't have any trouble til the third or fourth load. A friend said she had this same problem once and it was a bad motor. I don't want to spend that kind of money if that's not the problem. Thanks

During spin is the tub making a slight roaring sound? if so the tub bearing is going bad causing the motor to work harder than normal causing it to heat up. this motor has a thermal protector which shuts it down , although the power to the timer remains therefore the timer still advances. this will require a new bearing and seal kit.

Maytag ensignia top load washer will not fill with water at start of the cycle?


The drain hose has to be at least 30 inches above the floor or gravity will drain the machine. Also: If the water hose is jammed into the drain a siphoning affect will occur in some instances.

I have a Maytag Ensignia and the water will run but the tub will not fill.


You may have to just raise the drain hose up higher. It sounds as if the water is going out the drain hose as it tries to fill.Drain hose should be up as high as the top of the washer.Hope this helps.

My Maytag Ensignia washer is making a clunking noise like something is loose when it is in the rinse cycle.. also does not appear to be spinning as well as it should. What could be wrong with it


Mine had the same problem! Turned out to be the transmision going bad. My machine is only three years old. Transmision cost over $250 Not worth fixing.

It is your water pump. If you don't know what you are doing it could be tough.

Washing machine


the number one cause of this is your drain hose is too far down in the stand pipe or too low beneath the tub the drain hase should loop above the tub and about 4 inches down in the stand pipe if not this will create a siphoning effect that will drain the water as it fills
