Maytag Washer mav6000awq

Hello, I have a maytag washing mashine, mav6000awq and it was working perfectly until today.  It is completely dead.  Breakers are fine, Hubby is trying to troubleshoot but not getting anywhere yet.  Is there something that commonly goes wrong with these.  Thank you, Holly

    Thanks for your reply. No, the water is not even going.  Breakers are fine, there is power going in, my hubby has some sort of electric meter and says the power in is fine.  To start, you pull the knob and nothing...absolutely nothing.

    i would remove top console and have a look at the wirng right there and into timer assy its possible to have a bad water valve, but highly unlikely to have both hot and cold bad at same time, advancing timer is no good no spin, noithing??something doesnt sound right. but if you got power into timer , and switch water temp switch is not working either(you did check incoming water supply is on)thinkni you got a bad timer.ahhhh just looked this model also has a temp control board mounted to rear of timer, ( it does control water, that might be and issue. just got complicated

Maytag Centennial Washer - NO SPIN

OK so it sounds to me like your clutch is just slipping sometimes. Because the issue is sporadic it's hard to test for certain what the issue is, but I would recommened ordering and replacing the clutch to fix the issue. Below is a link to a video that shows you how to replace the part if you'd like.

Washing Machine will not fill with water

It sounds like the water solenoid has gone bad or stuck closed OR timer/control knob has bad set of contacts which control the solenoid.

Tip the machine back remove the belt try to turn the drive pulley manually . sorry the larger pulley in the centre. if you can turn it counter clockwise and feel the inner drum moving then the thrust bearing is ok. if not you may need to replace it.Also a bad lid switch can cause this problem.

MAYTAG Wahing machine model MAV6000AWQ

I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.
