Most Maytag front loading clothes washing machines made with a "door locking mechanism" to prevent opening door during a spin cycle. The "door locking mechanism" adjustable and often continued slamming or hard closing of door causes misadjustment of "mechanism" preventing machine from sensing door "locked" and entering a spin cycle. Check alignment of latch mechanism. Machines also produced with a "creative fix" by either factory and/or service technicians using folded paper or cardboard behind latch mounting mechanism to align mechanism; over time paper or cardboard compresses chaning alignment. Check the mechanism alignment before checking electrical boards or switches on motor and belt drive..

Drum does not spin centered, it is rubbing the seal

This isn't good. it's normally related to the tub bearing or spider brace on the inner/ outer tub. Both parts tend to be very costly. If its under a year old you will be covered in warranty.. if not it maybe time for a new machine. I have seen this on washer's as little as 14 month old. I'm not a front load washer fan because of this problem.

MY LG DIRECT DRIVE WASHING MACHINE WD15517 IS MAKING SOME SMALL HOLES (5 to 10 mm diameter) OR PERFORATIONS ON MY CLOTHES. AT LEAST 5 shirts have been damaged. We have been using the machine for about 12...

You need a new drum. Those holes are caused by the sharp edges of the baffles which cause the clothes to tumble.

If you can find the sharp edge you could put epoxy putty on it. However if it is 12 months old, it should be a warranty issue as you have only just found out what is causing it.

The hinge on the washer's door is very stiff, noisy, and tough to open & close. The washer is only 4 months old. How do I correct it?

give it a good splosh of "WD40" and work it in till it free's off or better still call out the people who sold it to you as its still under warranty??? i hope! and get them to fit you a new door hinge for "free!" after all this washer should last for years and years not just a fuw months

Water remains in the tub after spin cycle

Sounds to me like the Water Pump is bad. Hopefully if your machine is less than a year old you can get it fixed for free, if you bought it new it will have a 12 month warranty on it. If not you can always buy the manual for your washer and try to fix it yourself.

My Kenmore Elite Model # 110.42822201 has water coming out the bottom right side?

I had a leak in the same area.. I called Sears service and they came out and told me I had a hole in the nylon tub. The machine was 13 months old the warranty would only cover the part, not the labor (which was more than a new machine). I removed the access panel below the door (3 torx head screws) to get access. I ended up locating the area where the hole was by running the machine through a cycle. I marked the hole with a marker so I could find it again and let the area dry overnight. The next day I roughed the surface around the hole with a medium grit sandpaper and used a marine epoxy to patch the far no problems (14 months.)

I do have mold issues with this washer and would never buy a HE machine again...and have not been overly impressed with Sears appliances either....Own 5...washer, dryer, ref, stove and dishwasher. I have had problems with 3 of the 5

I have no way of knowing if this is where your leak is ...but hope so because it was an easy and inexpensive fix for me.... that so far is still working :)

Washer does not spin

I had the same problem in october- my had a bad wiring harness, some board problem, and a bad sensor. if it hadn't been under warranty the cost of parts alone would have been over 1000bucks.
