There's a good chance that it's something as simple as the drive belt having come off.

Disconnect the power and pull the machine away from the wall a bit then tip it back a little (judge "a bit" and "a little" so the top of the machine leans against the wall without risk of it falling in either direction) and have a little peek underneath without putting your head in harm's way.

If the belt is off, you're best to replace it with a new one. Prop the front of the machine up with something secure before you try to manhandle the new belt into position.

AGITATOR WILL NOT SPIN, WATER WILL DRAIN BUT NO SPIN


Does your motor sound like it is running in the agitate or spin cycle or is it quite? If the motor makes no sound, then you need to replace the lid switch with this part.
If you hear the motor running in the agitate or spin cycle but you don't see any action, then replace the motor coupler with this part.

Maytag Nuptune... when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins , then stops. I push the start button and once again it goes through the one spin and reverse and stops again


""when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins""

So I understand do you have the washer top raised to view this action? The wash basket rotates one rotation or are you talking about the tumblers?

If you raise the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW the Spin direction will it rotate CCW with very little effort?

Any dC or UC error code on fail to Spin?

If you do Spin Only Cycle do you have the same results.

I would enter Service Mode and do the Quick Spin test on page 14 of the Service Manual and see what the results are.

Washer fills up but doesnt start washing


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

The first thing I'd do is see if the washer will continue it's cycle in a different mode. i.e. Try to start it in a different cycle, or try to move the timer knob to the spin cycle.

Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and maintenance PDF on how top load, direct drive washers work.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

It has a troubleshooting section as well as detailed descriptions of how this type of washer works.

Maytag Neptune front load washer (top of the line)


some of the early washers had problems with a weak or faulty motor . take front panel loose and look at motor board it may look burnt on some of the resistors or look at the clear fuse at front of board it may be burnt if so use a motor/board conversion kit p#12002039.
