Timer on washing machine

Hi again. I posted another issue on my initial request from last month, but not sure if it went thru to you. I have been manually advancing my cycles on the washing machine, but today I thought I would try a different wash setting (I used Perm Press cycle instead of Ultra Clean) and the machine went through all cycles on its own from start to finish! Do you think it is still the timer? I have one on order thru Sears (160.+) but will cancel the order if I do not need it.

    I just put another load of laundry in, and it is not advancing again. I tried the perm press cycle again (which worked an hour ago) but I did change the water level from medium to large. what the heck is going on?!

    We have a 1 1/2 year old Maytag Atlantis MAV8551

    The control dial will not advance. Once it is advanced to wash it will continue untill we realize the dial is not moving. We then manually set it to spin and rinse. The spn cycle will not advance and not turn off. Is this control unit computerized or mechanical? What is the repair procedure.

WE have a Maytag Neptune TL and it is stuck in the wash mode... as though the timer does not register to move on to rinse.


Katie,

I'm and owner that knows the machine very well. If you are someone has some basic skills you can repair the machine.

It will come down to how much down time you can tolerate.

What I think is the issue is that the Upper One-Way bearing is seized and when the machine enters into spin cycle of the selected wash cycle the washer can't spin the wash basket. The Control Board tries to enter the spin cycle over and over again. There is no software routine in the Control Board to sense this and the machine keeps trying execute the spin cycle of that wash cycle......Timer never counts down.....

Place that wash load in a Spin Only cycle. If my diagnosis is correct then the machine will do the same thing never count down on the LED display in the Spin Only cycle.

All these machine are ready for a Tub Seal replacement and I can direct most owners thru the process. The cost is in the area of $60 for Tub Seal, ****** O-Ring and Outer Tub bearings. If you need to replace the Clutch Pulley around $80 additional. If you are the original owner I'm sure you have been thru that.

Here is a link to replacing the Tub Seal and Outer Tub bearings. See if this is a direction you want to go. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement

Here is a link to what I believe is your issue.........it just took me a long time to extract info from the owner on the failure. [FIXED] Maytag Neptune, Timer Problem

Maybe a FIXYA tech can jump in and add what they think might be the issue and a troubleshooting/repair path to follow.

You can make the machine last for a long time............way beyond the 3.5 yr. to 6 yr. point of most failures.........but each owner has to decide their course of action.

I go by dh1200s on most washer DIY forums including this forum.

Code 37 -


Hi,

To my knowledge, Error Code 37 on a Fisher & Paykel machine refers to "drain fault" which could either mean that the drain valve will not open or that the drain pump will not run. The easiest user intervention that could be performed is to check for any blockage/clog at the drain filter, drain pipe, drain pump impeller and drain valve.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Fisher and Paykel MW511 washing machine but the water will not pump out can any suggest what to do?


Hey again. I wasn't for sure if you saw my last post but I wrote you a detailed post on what to check on your other post. Check your water pump inside the washer. Make sure it is working and make sure it is not all clogged up. Check your drain hoses also. Try unplugging the washer and plugging it back up also. This will reset it. Try changing the selections a few times (the timer) to see if this will help as well. Best wishes.

We have an Indesit washer dryer WDG1295. When switching on, it fills with water, hums away as though it is working (including draining) but the drum doesn't turn. The belt looks fine, and if you move the...


Hi,

Immediate thought was the belt but you already checked that. Reading your message, you seem to be indicating the washer goes through the wash cycle and does everything except turn the drum, i.e. it fills and drains and the timer control knob advances as you would expect. This machine has an electro-mechanical timer rather than electronic, so if it advances through the program correctly, I would exclude this from my initial checks, but I'd still come back to it later.

Washing machines aren't that complicated, so if all of the above is true, the obvious assumption would be the drive motor. You've obviously opened up the machine to check the belt, so have you tested the motor with an ohm / multi-meter?

Please confirm the correct operation of the timer and whether you have tested the motor and I will try to assist you further. I check messages regularly, so if you post back here I should reply fairly quickly. Make sure you reply from within this page - don't post a new help request!

Regards,
BElectric

Machine won't go past "31" in the wash cycle. Does not code anything, just spins a bit, stops, repeats, stays on 31. I've posted two other problems with this machine in the past year. Have replaced a...

You may not want to hear from me again. This person had similar issues related to a Tub Seal and Outer Tub Bearing noise. I worked with him thru on a Outer Tub bearing, Tub Seal and Clutch replacement.

http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/maytag-magic-chef-admiral-jenn-air/17706-neptune-tl-spinning-issue-will-not-proceed.html

“”Okay I will try to say what I have done so far. The washer keeps trying to go thru the spin cycle. It starts spinning & then stops & then starts up again, over & over & never finishes the cycle & doesn't expel the water.
NO codes come up as an issue either. “”


I did a lot of off line work with him via e-mail. I'm going to ping him and see if his machine is still in service.

Do the Quick spin test and see if the wash basket will spin up to 850RPM. Maybe we have some binding with increased Outer Tub Bearing resistance and or Spinner Support bearing resistance.................or it may be time for a plain vanilla $300 machine replacement.

Have you droped the clutch out to see if you have water contamination with the One-Way Roller Clutch bearing and Upper bearing ring. I believe you have a Series 10 machine.

Maybe someone else on the forum may chime in with a handy tip.

Let ya know how the other forum member fix is doing if he responds back to me.

Washing machine does go thru spin cycle or drain water.


If the washer does not spin, take off the rubber bumbers inculding the little washers attached, inside the lid. It lowers the lid, which takes care of the problem. I had the same problem. Not anymore! Trust me, if nothing is wrong with any other part of the washer, this will work.

Have to change cycle manually


Reason? There shouldn't be one. Seems you're extraordinarily unlucky with timers. Mine's 10yo, never broke. The timer is a standalone part, it's not dependent on any other parts for its longevity. So there can't be any other parts in the washer 'killing' it.

Are you handling it gently? Turn it slowly when setting, don't whip it around.
