Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6500A Front Load Washer
The issue is within the pressure switch and it needs replacing to address it. The wash side circuit in the pressure switch is closed during the drain and spin increments after the main wash, first rinse, second rinse, and extra rinse increments. When the water level drains below the wash full level, the circuit will close and energize the pressure switch input. The machine control interprets this as a signal not to energize the water valve outputs to measure how quickly the washer is draining.
In your case, the water valve outputs are energized because the machine control did not detect the wash side circuit in the pressure switch close. Replace the pressure switch.
Remove the rear access panel to access and replace the pressure switch. It is mounted on the bracket molded as part of the pump assembly. Place a towel beneath the pump and remove the plastic bag covering the pressure switch.
Press in the locking tabs on the back of the pressure switch then pivot the pressure switch off the pump bracket.
Grasp the pressure switch and lift the nipple from the pump cap.
Install the new pressure switch in reverse of the aforementioned steps and reposition the plastic bag onto the pressure switch.
