Maytag mah6700aww frontload washer shuts off mid cycle

Washers shuts off a different points in the cycle. Usually first time is early in the rinse. Power goes completely out. I unplug the machine and in about 12-24 hours I can complete a rinse only cyle then power goes out again. Then I have to unplug again for 12-24 hours to complete a spin only cyle. If i' don't wait 12-24 hours, the machine will light up but power off quickly (usually within a few seconds to a minute or so). This pattern has occured on all water temp and time wash settings. Hose filters are clean and I have reseated the control board wires. Can't find any loose or corroded wires. Machine is 18 months old. Any ideas?

    OK. I rolled the dice and spent just under $200 on a new main circuit control board. Part Number #34001479. This control board is slightly different from the one my machine came with. Maytag added motion detector that is supposed to help alleviate "walking". Install was pretty easy with the included instructions. No at all too difficult for the DIY amatuer. This seems to have fixed the problem. The machine fired right up and works just like new. Hope this helps someone else.

SOURCE: Washer stops in mid-cycle, with a tank full of

I don't have the best news for your here. This type of problem is caused by the timer, i.e. main control that you use to select cycles starting to fail.

To start (if you haven't done this already) Pull out the timer knob and rotate it to spin and push it back in. If the spin cycle alone works, it will drain out the machine. If not there is the bail out technique for removing water.
If I am correct, when you put the machine into a normal cycle, the knob rotates, but the machine is silent. Just sits there. The older Maytags are a cut above many other machines on the market.
If you install the timer yourself, you will probably pay about $100.00 for the part.
If you supply me with the model number and serial number, I can give your some instruction on how to do it. They will be located on a placard probably on the top rear of the machine. If my memory serves me correctly
It is not a difficult job. does not require any expensive tools to do. If you do it make sure that the machine is UNPLUGGED FROM THE ELECTRICAL POWER WHILE CHANGING OUT THE TIMER.
Hope this helps,
Have a Happy New Year,

My washing machine stopped working in mid-cycle. No agitation is going on and I could not drain it but putting to spin.

Make sure the washer fills with cold water from the beginning of the cycle because most washers have a cold only rinse cycle and if your cold water valve is bad then the machine will stop mid cycle because it cannot fill the washer for the rinse cycle. Secondly, it helps to know which washer you have so please enter more info next time you ask a question. Good luck.

Maytag washer (LAT7400AAV)shuts off during rinse cycle

The machine control board is programmed to allow a maximum continous fill time of six minutes
or an accumulated fill time of 8 minutes for each full wash cycle.
If the required fill time exceeds the time limit, the washer will shut down.
This is to prevent flooding in the event there is a loose hose clamp or damaged air dome hose.
Check the incoming water lines for a minimum pressure of 20 psi.
If lower, the customer can use smaller clothes loads and reduce the pressure to 10 psi.
An alternative solution would be to change the plastic inlet screens to metal screened washers
and remove the nozzle extender found in the water valve inlet hose near the dispener inlet."

It is possible that poor water flow may be the culprit. Most washers operate on a water level system. The water levels have to be reached before the next cycle begins . If the water flow is slow this can extend the run time. To remedy this shut water off to unit disconnect hoses at unit. There usually are screens inside each hose connection on washer gently remove these and clean them.reinstall in washer. Before reattaching hoses put the unattached ends in a pail and turn the water on to flush out the hoses. Then reattach them and see if this solves the problem. Hope this helps.

Wash doesn't go through full cycle

I have a Maytag model A490 clothes washer. It works fine up to the rinse cycle and then shuts down. When it reaches this point it has become necessary to manually advance the dial a short ways whereupon it will fill with water and complete the rinse and spin cycles. This happens on both the regular and the permanent press cycles. What needs to be done to fix this problem?

Can you see water in the drum ?,No water = no action Check water supply

If there is water in the drum does it drain out at some point.

Sequence = Fill, Agitate, Heat, Wash, Drain, Spin etc.

If it fills then it may be a belt has snapped and the drum cannot turn , need to take the covers off to look.

Remove power before taking covers off !!!!

If the belt is OK then it may be the heater which has gone open circuit, try a cold wash or a rinse cycle to test that.

Maytag front loader washing machine. Mould

How old is the washer? Did you try straight bleach on a towel and placed over the "mold" spot for about 5 minutes, be sure to wear gloves. Then scrub with a small brush being careful not to splatter bleach on yourself and rinse well. May need to replace the seal. I always leave the door cracked open after every use to "dry" out the inside and the boot. I also leave the drawer pulled out when not in use for that area to dry out as well. I have never had mold on the door seal of my Neptune washers, only the water holes above the dispenser drawer.

Check your lid switch, some machines stay running when you add clothes when it agitates, but will shut off if you lift the lid in rinse and spin, lid switch may be broken.
