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,

Why will my washer not complete its cycles.

It's possible that the gears in the timer are stripped at the point where it messes up.

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.

Possible error on the program due to a memory issue. After resetting, if the machine has the same fault with all the selected programs, then it is possible that the motherboard is faulty. Please check the INLET flow to be good and the drain pump to be clear.

Washer stalls mid cycle

In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. If the machine is getting to the spin cycle and still turning slowly but not draining the water, the pump is probably the culprit, either being locked up or in most cases something like a sock, etc. is stuck in it preventing it from turning. This is usually indicated by a humming sound during the spin/drain section with no water draining.In top load washers, if the machine goes through the cycles and then just stops at the spin cycle and leaves you with no noise and a tub full of water more than likely the lid switch is bad and not completing the circuit for cycle to continue. This is a safety precaution to prevent injury by reaching in the machine while at high speed spin. You can usually look and visually see the spot where the switch should be and if damaged. How to repair :
Chances are the lid switch is bad. Sometimes you can see the switch located on the left or right side of the top where the lid closes but sometimes its located under the heading. In either case the lid switch is attached to the cabinet. To remove the cabinet
1) Unplug the machine. 2) At the head, or control panel, find the two screws that hold it to the case. Some are on the left and right front lower corners of the panel, and some are vertical facing s on the rear left and right side. Also on some models they are in the front but you have to pull the end caps off the sides of the control panel. Further more in some of the newer models you have to take a thin paint scraper and slide under the left and right normers to press the clips in to release. 3) Remove the 2 screws and then pull the panel from the lower part of it towards you and roll it backwards. 4) Disconnect the lid switch connection in the the middle where the two grey wires and the green wire block connects to the body of the machine, usually near the middle under the panel. 5) with a flathead screwdriver pop out the two brass retainer clips on the right and left side. 6) Open the lid slightly where you can grab the case, not the tub, just the case, and pull forward and surprise!!! You just took the complete top, sides and front of the machine off.
7) get a jumper wire and find the block that you disconnected that wasn't attached to the caseand place the jumper where in the holes where the is a wire other than green, which is ground. What your doing is bypassing the lid switch. Now with jumper wire in place, plug the machine in, turn to the spin cycle and turn it on. If it works you juist verified the lid switch is bad.

The washer only fills halfway up during rinse cycle only, even on high water setting. it fill completely during the wash cycle.

Has it always done this or just recently? Some washers have lower rinse fills then spray the water on the clothes as it goes through its cycle.

I have the MAYTAG top loader washer, Model #MAV6451AWW, it will not spin in the rinse cycle, how to fix / take apart?

Usually when this unit washes but will not spin the thrust bearing kit is damaged.This is easy to repair with little cost.
Completly empty the unit, clothes and water ,unplug the power cord, lie the unit on its back, remove the belt,the c clip from the pully. Take the thrust bearing,the pully the washers off the unit . Grease the new bearing and install new parts. I would also replaced the belt.

When washer goes into the rinse cycle it won't fill it contue to try and fill but won't

Check your manual. Some washers don't fill when they rinse, instead, they spray rinse. While the tub spins, they spray water in every few seconds until the cycle is completed. This is also how the second rinse works on a lot of models.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer model #110 and won't agitate

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23912100

Also see the Whirlpool (Kenmore) Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.$FILE/L-55.pdf

The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.

I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.

Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.

These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.

Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.
