Maytag Quiet Plus 2 cloths washer - aggitator drain plugged up

I have Maytag Quiet Plus 2 cloths washer, good unit. However, the drain in the aggitator for the fabric softenr keeps getting plugged up with lint, then it cloggs up with the fabric softer and lint, so the softener won't drain properly during the spin cycle. Is there a way to open up the plastic aggitator so I can get to the clog? Have tried a bent-straight clothes hanger, but the metal is too big to get in the grooves, or to grab the smaller pieces of lint. Any suggestions?

Ok grab hold of the top of agitator about 4 inches from the top and just pull that top right off.Hit it at an angle and it will pop right off .Dont be shy ,its just plastic that is snapped onto plastic.To put it back on just line it up on top and Smack It back on.Easy Ha???Youll be able to clean it alot easier now.If you dont use fabric softener your problem will be gone for ever .Try using less and mix water in it first.I'll help you if you need further help..

Maytag jetclean quiet plus fills but wont wash or drain.


The mother board is going out, or the drain pump is failing. Try un plugging it...... by which i mean turning the power off to the unit and doing a soft reset. See if it recycles into the normal mode and works.

My dishwasher will not drain


Sounds like you may either have a blocked drainage line or a bad pump which controls draining the washer.

I would check to see if there is food scraps blocking the drainage screen inside the wash tub. This is typically the most common problem. If your washer unit drains into the sink drain such as connecting through the garbage disposal (as some do) this might be clogged with what is known as FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) buildup. This would cause the water to be blocked from being pumped out of the tub.

Check these things and see if they help. A replacement pump can run as much as $100 depending on the unit, plus the installation labor from a repairman. If the unit is more than 5 years old, you might want to consider a newer, more efficient washer unit. A new washer from places like Lowes, can be as little as $300.

Cheers,

Keith

Dishwasher does not drain


The drain runs from the dishwasher into either the side of your garbage disposal, or directly into your sink drain. If it is running to your disposal, pull the hose and make sure that the plug in the disposal (where the hose connects) is knocked out. Some have been known to install them without removing the plug. Either way, pull the hose loose and you can use a compressor to blow through it. If the air comes back through the dishwasher, then you are probably blocked in the main drain.

My Maytag dishwasher does not drain water after the wash cycle is over


Hi olabrk,
If you have a disposal make sure it is clear. You can put some icecubes in it to clean the blades and run some water through to make sure the drain is clear. If the dishwasher will still not pump out all the water check the drain line from the dishwasher to the sink drain for obstructions. If the drain is you will have to check the pump for obstructions. Sometimes glass, popcorn, toothpicks etc.... can get in the pump and prevent it from pumping out. If the pump is clear, then you will need a new pump. Good luck to you.

Maytag quiet plus II - leaking water


Check under while the washer is filling and draining. You could have a loose clamp on a hose, the seal on the shaft may only leak while doing these. On the other hand, more times than not, rodents seem to enjoy chewing on washer catch basins.
