Question about Maytag LSE7806A Top Load Stacked Washer/Dryer

WASHING MACHINE STOPPED WASHING

Ok, I went to put in a shirt that needed washing. The washer had already filled up with water and was swishing away. I opened the lid put the shirt in closed the lid and - nothing. I opened the lid and closed it again. Nothing. I started moving the knob that you set what wash cycle you want. I always chose the same one. Regular wash with 18. Northing. I opened the lid and took out the shirt and moved the wet clothes around a bit. Closed the lid and it started filling up with water. Yay - I say to myself. Went out of the room and then the water stopped filling and - nothing. Hasn't done anything sense. All it did was fill up with alittle more water. So I took everything out and now I have a washer tub with gross slimy water. Please Help. My son, who is very mechanical, says he will fix it but only if we know what is wrong. A pump replacement maybe? Thank you

    Hi Jahn27. Ok, I went to check to see if I can hear the motor. No, I can't hear anything. Silence.



    So here is the Model & Serial #: Model: LSE7806ACE Serial: 19839168AT



    Could you please let us know if we will need to go under the washer? Or in between the washer and dryer or what? If you could give us as much info as possible would be great.



    Thanks for all your help. Laura

It sounds like the lid switch is not activated when the lid is closed. The lid switch is where the power to the drive motor is routed and its failure disables the motor. Check if you can hear the motor hums indicating that it is running when the lid is closed. The lid switch is indeed not working if the motor is running; otherwise, the belt is either broken or has slipped off the pulley if the washer is belt drive or the motor coupler is broken. Please specify the exact model number of the washer for specific and accurate troubleshooting and repair advice

    The washer fills, therefore the lid switch is definitely good. Check the timer if the timer motor is running after the filling; if not, check the check switch (part number 207166). Otherwise, the washer drive motor (part number 12002351) is dead.

    The washer top cover requires to be removed to access the lid switch assembly where the check switch is located. Check also the condition of the fuse located on the front left hand side of the washer. Check also the wiring diagram for your reference.

Prblems with Kemore washer


Clean your washing machine before your next wash load to be sure there is no lint trapped anywhere in the machine. Fill the tub about half full of water then add a couple of cups of white vinegar to the wash water. Allow it to agitate and then sit there and soak for at least an hour before you empty the machine.
Lint is small fibers from clothing that have come loose from natural wear or laundering. They can build up in washers and wreak havoc on your clothing. The dryer will remove the lint. But with clothing, like dress shirts that are air-dried, this can be a real problem; often requiring multiple washings to remove the lint. Older washers came standard with removable lint traps that could be cleaned. Some would filter the water as it recycled through the washer, while others would require the removal of the center tub support for cleaning.
Newer washers have a self cleaning system that uses a filter to trap the lint and the spin cycle to flush it away. It saves the inconvenience of having to manually clean the filter.
If you have a lint problem, here are a few tips to try:
1) Low water pressure can impede the flushing action of the washer during the spin cycle. Look for pressure variations during filling of both hot and cold water. A kinked or blocked hose can cause this. Check for sediment in the hose as well.
2) Verify that the all of the water is being pumped out of tub and that no restriction in the drain hose exists.
3) Don't wash high lint producing items like socks and towels with your dress shirts.
4) Use a name brand detergent. They have higher quality cleaners and soften the water better, which helps release the bond between lint and clothing, allowing it be flushed away.
5) Don't overload the washer. Your washer needs water and room to remove the lint.
6) Run a wash cycle with a cup of regular white vinegar added. This will help rid your washer of any accumulated lint.
A washer doesn't produce enough lint to have any effect on a septic system, so a separate washer filter is not necessary.


Add a cup of either white or cider vinegar to your washing machine along with the detergent before loading in your clothes to keep lint off.

Sort out all towels and washcloths since they create lint. Put them through a separate wash cycle to keep them from transferring lint to your clothes.

Check the labels on all your clothing to be sure you sort them correctly. Cotton clothing produces lint in the washing machine while polyester clothing picks it up. Wash them at different times to keep the lint off those that are likely to pick it up.

Turn your clothes inside out before putting them into the washing machine to keep them from collecting lint as they go through the wash cycle

It wont drain the water away after a wash we


sounds like your pump may be gone, or could be pipe blocked. to check pipe fill machine take outlet pipe at rear of machine and lay this into a bowl. If water flows ok then all pipes are clear. As water is coming through just put machine onto spin cycle and raise hose to see if water will then pump out.

I had the same problem and some time later it stopped completely. The probmlem is in the Prorammer.
UNfortunately it is very hard to find because the appliance is very old. If you find one, I can tell you in detail what is the sequence to change it.
Good luck!

if you hear the motor running while it is supposed to be agitating or spinning then it is most likely the direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission.43f18ab.jpg9bd1c44.jpg if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.  Mike
