Hi,

I guess Lid Switch is Bad. The washer might not go into Rinse or Spin, if the Lid Switch is Bad for Safety Reasons.

Maytag Stack MLE2000AYW Washer Timer Won't Advance


If manually turning the timer allows it to spin and drain, then I would say the used timer installed was also defective. Try a new timer. You will save money if you get it online or go to an appliance parts store like "Mid-America Appliance" rather than Sears or the likes. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool top load washer won't advance through cycles


A small motor that rotates the timer has gone bad. Common practice is to replace the timer. Usually a mechanical timer of this type is less expensive than a computerized timer.

Maytag neptunefront load won,t spin mod mle2000ayw


Hi Vinod, the lock light is not on. The motor and belt seem okay; it agitates. I think lock light is supposed to come on only when tub is full. Again my manual says nothing on this!!

Kenmore series 80 washer won't drain after wash cycle


Try the 'drain' portion of a few of the other cycles (heavy, perm. press, delicates) and see if it will drain/spin there. You can also try advancing the timer slowly through the 'spin' portion to see if it kicks in anywhere.

If it will rinse and spin in the other cycles, you most likely have a bad timer.

Hope this helps.

Water fills in, but wash cycle won't start. spin cycle works, changed motor still won't work


Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.

Will not spin Maytag PAV2300AWW top loader


check your door switch. Many times a faulty door switch can prevent the spin cycle. When you locate the door switch, take a jumper wire across the connection and advance the timer to spin. If it spins with the jumper wire, you will need a new door switch.
