Sporadic at first, but now will not spin at all, there is water in bleach & softener trays. Occasionally will spin on the extra spin, but not on the regular spin. If we turn the drum you can hear water sloshing around. Repair man said we were using to much soap - made adjustments - didn't help - came back said we were filling it to full - whether it is one item or 10 items - didn't help - came back said we were not using like kind clothes (towels with underwear), come on!!! Replace the motor - didn't help - put old motor back in, replaced computer board on top - hasn't helped. He is coming back tomorrow and we are at a frustration mode - - I'll fix it myself if someone will tell me how. HELP

Re: MLE200AYW washer does not spin
Lets start with the basics, Door lock indicator coming on?? is door actually locking?? if not, i would lean toward the top board AS WELL as wax motor and door switch,.. assuming all lights are functioning correctly then head toward lower Motor control board. depending on age of machine, you would replace both motor and control board as a kit.NEPTUNE REPAIR KIT (very rarly an issue with motor)..next would be a possible out-of-balance swithc located around the tub(if one of them faults out then the tub will not spin either. theres 3 things i check, and when in doubt i call the maytag techline for further help troubleshooting. As long as servicer is a maytag autherized repair co. he can call as well

I suggest there may be hard water mineral deposits in the hose or orifice to the tray. Try soaking it with some Coke (yes I mean the soft drink) overnight and see if the flow improves. Either that or you can try some CLR but Coke should be enough to gently remove any deposits there are in the tray, hose or line.
In my case it was simply a matter of cleaning the nozzles that spray the water into the MAIN DETERGENT compartment. Turns our that when the washer was filling up, some nozzles were partially clogged and were directing water to the side where the softener compartment was, causing the fluid level to rise and therefore releasing the softener early. The washer was NOT spraying water in the softener side, what happens is that the dispenser tray is configured in a way that when the fluid reaches a certain max level in the softener/bleach trays, it completely drains. A way to test for this problem would be to completely dry the softener tray and start the wash cycle like you normally would (including detergent), only without adding any softener to the tray and see if after filling there is any water in the softener tray, this would prove that the water is coming from the other side.
There are a couple of reasons why the fabric softener will not dispense. If everything else dispenses properly (detergent and bleach), then I would suspect a bit of plugging. If the softener remains in the dispenser, the water valve above the tray may be sticking. You'll have to get the top up to check it. If there is water in the tray, or some water/softener, then you'll need to look at the overflow cap. Here's how that works: Your dispensing trays for bleach and softener have a raised tube built into them, and each is covered with a loose fitting cap. When water is let into the tray, the level rises under the cap until it overflows, creating a syphon. The softener is literally pulled from the tray, and chased by the water. When the water stops, the tray level continues to drop, until air gets into the cap, breaking the syphon. The cap can be removed and cleaned. Sometimes the tray has to be removed first. Theres a catch towards the rear of the tray.

tHE PROBLEM IS YOU NEED TO CLEAN YOUR SOAP, SOFTENER AND BLEACH DISPENSER, REMOVE THE BLEACH AND SOFTENER DISPENSER TRAY, AND YOU WILL FIND THAT IF YOU HAVE BEEN USING LIQUID SOFTENER, THAT IT HAS GUMMED UP AND CLOG THAT AREA AND IS CAUSING SPILL OVER. WHEN THE WATER IS POURED INTO THE TRAYS TO DISPENSE THE BLEACH AND OR SOFTENER.
I'm sure you heard a small motor running from time to time during a cycle. That moves an "arm" which sends water to the different chambers during a cycle. Fabric softener is dispensed when water goes to that chamber and dilutes the fabric softener. That chamber then empties by a siphoning action.
If you want to narrow down the problem a little to help trouble shoot -- put some wet rags in and run the Rinse and Spin cycle with some fabric softener. If the softener is not dispensed, then you know that the water isn't being sent to that chamber properly.
If you are intrepid enough to take the top off your washer, do that and see if the arm appears to be moving during a normal cycle. Maybe the arm got dislodged or broken during the move.
If water isn't being diverted properly, I think this calls for a real repair person.
