Spin cycle Machine skips spin and goes right to the off, If you move the knob manually back around to the spin it will work. Does this sound like the timer is bad?

Hello, I have a Maytag legacy series washing machine and recently it stopped working properly, first it tripped the breaker, then in regular washing mode it washes normally but skips spinning and water...


Sounds like a bad relay array, or timer module. The little motor that makes the selector move (and then trip the function switches inside the timer module) could have trouble moving the selector past a certain point. When the machine stops, press your ear up against the timer module. Do you hear the little timer motor running? Yes? then it's probably the timer module itself, not the timer motor. I say this because you can manually move the selector to activate the modes.

MY WASHER DOES GREAT UNTIL THE SPIN CYCLE, THEN IT GOES CRAZY. IT SPINS SO FAST THAT IT VIBRATES INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE ROOM... ITS ALL I CAN DO TO HOLD IT IN PLACE.. WHAT IS CAUSEING THIS. CAN IT BE...


We picked up a Frigidaire Infinity front loading washing machine. After the first load was washed as it was drying the machine started shaking violently and was moving around the room. We tried a few different things: load sizes, spin speeds, trying to make it even, holding it down, we had no luck. We had skipped removing the shipping hardware. Although it does say IMPORTANT, the importance was placed on keeping them for future use, when shipping, so we figured we could just leave them in. WRONG. They are long bolts! Once we removed them the machine purred during the spin cycle like a little kitten.

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.

Hi, my switch keeps going around and around without stopping


Hi I fixed the problem by removing the filter at the bottom right hand corner of the washing machine and removing 2 x £1 coins that had got stuck there

Maytag commercial washer gets to spin cycle and stops


It sounds like your timer is defective

FIX

When the machine gets to the rinse cycle slowly advance the setting to manually advance the timer
if it just sits bang on the panel or around the knob and listen if ou hear the timer start ticking you will need to replace it

Timers are avaliable from appliance parts suppliers around $29 you can get someone to install it or if you are handy can do it yourself

good luck

24642300 doesn't spin


  • yes it does sound like the timer is bad. 
  • the timer has small contacts in it (sort of like a music box) that lift and rest in certain places. 
  • these contacts may not mate properly as the timer goes around slowly in the normal operation.
  •  but when you manually turn it is a faster turn and the contacts will fall faster and get a better connection.
