Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer
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?
either balance load sensor or machine failing to drain in the allocated time, check pump/filter for blockage

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,
