Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

The washer was loaded too much and stopped working. I unloaded the stuff and still did not wash. However, the pump works as well as high speed spin. I changed the belts already. No change. The machin is over 20 years old and we never had any problem with it. The model is: A506, series 04, serial 3 203837 vc. there is another no. 745G. is this fixable? and how much would it cost? Thanks Al

    Thanks for the advice. I was afraid that would be the solution though.

You have damaged the washer transmission, there is not other part that will cause this, the cost of the transmission and the difficulty of repair on a machine this old is not worth it, you can replace it for less than $400 for a top loader, then there is the water and energy savings of a new machine, it is a win win situation.

Washing machine is not completing spin cycle at high speeds. Only goes slow speed tumble for a few times and then stops.


Below is for Whirlpool/Kenmore, u might find it helpful. Some machines have a small trap door on left front bottom, coin trap.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Screen reads UE? what is UE?


UE stands for Unbalance Error. If the washer has tried to spin numerous times, tried to redistribute the load itself between each attempt, and still not been able to get the load up to full speed without experiencing an off balance condition, it will finally stop and display the UE code. This is most often the case when a heavy / bulky item(s) are being washed and the spin speed is set very high. When washing these items, set the spin speed to low. The machine will most likely be able to handle that. If you want them spun out faster, then AFTER the washer has made it through the cycle on low speed spin do this: Turn the power back on. Without selecting any cycle, just press the spin speed button, selecting the next higher spin speed. Now press start, and your washer will just do a 14 minute or so pump and spin.
For super wet heavy loads, if you cannot even get the washer to go through a cycle on the lowest spin speed, you may have to wring a bunch of the water out of the clothes by hand before doing the 14 minute cycle thing.

GE WHDRR418 top load washer won't spin at high speed; the washer does the complete cycle, and agitates in both directions and does physically spin, but it will not go into the 'high speed' spin that...


we can eliminate the motor and the switch since that part is working. sound like your timer might be faulty, timer make everything work in persistence cycles, if its goes bad sometime it tend to jump/skip cycles.

Does not always spin


How old and is it on all loads? How fast to stop the machine when you lift the lid? Can you stop the tub while spinning, careful on this one?

Doesn't spin the clothes dry on the final spin but spins at high revolutions without a load of clothes


I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....
