Maytag Epic Z Washing Machine shuts down during spin, can I fix it myself?


Hello Brain;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.



Error codes are generalized. Both of your codes are drain relative. They will tell you to clean your drain, but there is more to it than that.



You may have a bad drain water level switch, a plugged drain line....



Please send me your model number, So I can see what your have.

ASKO W620 QUATTRO 1200 RPM front load washing machine. This morning clothes were still very wet, I turned on spin cycle & some water came into machine?? Turned off water at tap - now can't open door to...


Probably a blockage in the drain hose at the back of the machine. Easy to fix. Turn machine off then pull machine out so you can easily access behind. Have bowls and cloths/rags at hand for water spillage. The drain hose is located low down and links into your sink drain, it is held in place by a clip. Remove the clip and hose. This will start to drain the machine so make sure you have enough vessels to catch the water. When the water has stopped draining, check the hose for blockages : buttons / coins / hair grips / paper etc. Also check the hole where the hose attaches to the machine. Remove items then blow through the hose to see if there are any other restrictions. If all clear then replace hose on back of machine. Clear up. Move machine back to normal position. Switch on and set to spin. When complete, the machine should shut off cycle and unlock door. This will save you at least 100 pounds on a call-out. Good luck.

Filling with water then does not finish cycle


There should be a sensor on the door that tells it the door is shut. Check that this is being pressed when the door is shut. You should see it where the doormeets the washer and can use something to press it. Put your washing in spin cycle and press it if it starts spinning there is your problem( make sure the washer is empty ). If it still doesn't work you will most likely need a repairman.

Washer does not completely drain to allow for spin


The most common cause for standing water in a washer is a clogged drain pump. Another possibility is a kink or clogged drain tube. Below is a youtube video with instructions on removing a drain pump on most front load washers including your Frigidaire model. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

It will wash but when its time for the first draining out the water to spin it stops


Three things to inspect are:
  1. Clogged drain hose - cause water to back up to the pump and shut down
  2. Clogged drain tube - usually occurs when the drain hose is attached to a drain tube that empties out into the homes sewer system. Just like a clogged drain, water will back up all the way through the drain hose into the pump and shut down.
  3. Clogged or bad drain pump - Many times, debris left in pockets will work it's way into the drain pump. Over time, enough debris (paper, coins etc) could lodge itself into the pump. When the machine tries to empty or spin out, the pump becomes overwhelmed and shuts down. Sometimes, you may even see a puddle of water appear under the washer due to a clogged pump. This can also happen if the pump itself is worn out and no longer working up to specifications.
Best of luck with your repair.

I have an asko 11505 clothes washer. For some reason, it is not going through all of the spinning cycle, it spins for a short time, then stops abrutely. I cleaned the coin stop, cleaned out all water...


My Asko 11505 washer fills only a little water then shuts off. If I drain the washer with the drain hose from under the machine, then the machine will start up and fill enough water to fill the hose again, then shut off.

No spin


If anyhow the drain pump is blocked the spinning will be blocked. Check for a forrign object in the drain pump. If you can feel/hear it buzz (very quietly) while it should be pumping out it might be jammed up with something. That however is kind of rare with the angled tub the Neptune uses.
Are you sure the machine is actually not pumping out, or is it possible its just turning off in the rinses?
Reason I'm asking is the control will shut the machine down if its taking too long to fill up. Many times it will fill fine for the wash fill, but because the rinse takes twice the ammount of water it activates the system and shuts down while its half way filled. Look for a slow cold water fill for that problem.

Is the door locking in the spin? One very common problem on the older 3000 and 4000 series machines is the R11 resistor on the machine control board bruning out leaving the door lock inoperative. If the door won't lock, it won't spin. I do believe, however, the machine will still pump out. But many times what happens is the pump removes all the standing water, but without spinning everything in the tub stays soaked. The saturated clothing drains the water out and then leaves a few inches in the bottom of the tub.

If you have the newer style Neptune (with the control panel on the front of the machine) only the top paragraph applies.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Eco smart won't drain, smells hot


hi
you commented on hearing water in the machine after the wash , i know that f&p spin bowls have a liquid inside the actual spin bowl system i think it aids in the spin operation of the machine, but if you had something in the drain network then that will stop the machine from emptingout as it all works on a time basis check and see that you are not getting any leaks from the bottom of the machime as your new pump won't last long if it gets wet also if there is water leaking that can be the main seal on the motor shaft failing
