Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described the issue seems to be the pump going bad, you can check it as the pump is very easy to remove, ( unlocks from the base ) take the pump apart and check for foreign objects inside the pump assy. The power wires pull off and matters not which way they go back on. Also check the hoses to and from the drain pump for any foreign objects. The pump is usually at the back right side (looking at the washer from the front).



Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Hi there,

Well first of all check to see if the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely, if it's frozen or stiff then replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it, but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. Please post comments for more help or information......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

My modle # mmv4205aab lost all power, no display, no nothing. thank you


Hello- Unplug, open door, and remove screw holding display panel. Be careful, some wires may need to be unplugged. 20a fuse should be visible. If this fuse is bad- replace and address any power supply issues, such as age of wiring or circuit load-(other stuff plugged in) Hope this helps-ED

Hotpoint microwave is loud.


your transformer windings are loose and the 60 cycle frequenct is setting up a mechanical vibration, you can try and look for anything loose inside the unit, but if the transformer windings get loose theres really no fix but to live with it

This microwave GE JES834 800 watts, turns on all by itself , and continmues to turn on


Hi.
Put a cup of water in the unit (if you haven't already). This will tell you if it's actually 'cooknig' or not....... Probably not..... A bad door switch can actually turn on/off lights and fans just from building vibration...... If it does heat the water, the magnetron has most likely been damaged from running empty (no load) and it's usually more cost effective to replace the unit.

When on spin cycle, Maytag MAV5057AWW vibrates excessively more so than just an unbalanced load. When I open the lid the whole tub and agitator is moving around alot forward and back as well as side to...


make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

Table not spinning


your oven is not spinning,when u put some load,either the motor which makes the spinning is not picking up the load,so u get the motor serviced or change the carbon brushes which comes in front of the armature of your spinner.

Maytag Microwave MMV1153


First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.

See http://maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp

For an out of warranty reply:

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
