Possible that the timer is faulty, the water pump is defective or the failure of the valve or voltage switching of the driver. Remove the panel and check if there is any connection that would have got cut off, some times rodents can casue this to happen. if so connect with the same wire colours and insulate. The cut offf is happening because the function is not going through, hence it willbe better to check for the switch on drive of the main motor, the exhaust valve and teh exhaust pump. test them one by one, test teh voltage across the valves the pump to confirm. replace and test. Helful I guess. Good day

SOURCE: Stacked Matag washer & Dryer (Dryer on top)

Opening door while spining should stop the machine. Since no water comes in, the agitate stage will not work even when the timer will be on this spot. Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck !

SOURCE: Washer work up to final spin. then stops.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Water supply will not shut off when washer is full


if power is off and it still fills change the water inlet valve, if it over flows but stop when you pull the plug or push the timer knob then change the water lever switch, of coarse before changing the switch make sure the rober tube of the water lever switch that connect to the tub is connected at both ends and/or that it is not damage, crack tec and that it hold its pressure.

Tip

How to receive the best washing machine repair help on FixYa


There are a couple of things that you should include in your washer repair question so you receive the quickest and most accurate answers.


1. Model Number

The model number can be located on the model/serial number tag that is located on the washer.

Make sure you get the full model number from this tag and not the model number from the owners manual.

The model number from the owners manual only includes the first few digits of the full model number because they include that owners manual with many similar models of washers.

With the full model number I'm able to look up factory service manuals, tech sheets, wiring diagrams, factory service pointers and so much more.


2. Detailed description of the problem

At the very least give a brief description of the problem you are having with your washer.

Descriptions like 'My washer don't work' is not very helpful.

Describe what is not working. For example is the washer not filling with water? Maybe the washer is full of water but it will not pump the water out?

The more details you can give the better. Instead of saying 'The washer will not pump the water out' you could go into more detail and say something like...

"My washer filled up with water and started agitating. When I went to take the laundry out of the washer the timer had advance to the end of the cycle, but the washer was still full of water. I advance the timer around to the drain cycle again to try and drain the water out of the washer, but all the washer does is make a humming sound."

Following these couple tips can help you get a faster and more accurate reply to your washer repair question.

Water would not shut off and flooded garage? When do you know if your dial to start machine is broke?


Possible that the program timer controller has failed . Also the inlet valve or the seal was faulty to release water to overflow due to faulty action of the timer. Check cost of timer with cost of new machine and decide.

Will not turn on . started filled with water then shut off and will not power up now. it still has water in machine this washer is a little over one year old .


Sounds like the timer motor didnt engage. Soon as the fill switch activates, when its full, the timer motor advances forward and starts the cycle. Since the water stops when full. Then part of the switch is working. The one that is nc at same time the one that is no engages. Try advancing the dial couple clicks into the cyckle then pull back out.

Washer is over filling.


AV,

Yup! I know what's going on (the tip off was when you said, "The water does stop when I push the timer off"). See? the timer, as I'm sure you know, supplies or "directs" power to each component in the washer... kinda like a conductor does an orchestra. When you push the timer knob to "Off", you shut down the symphony thereby removing power from all of the components. Make sense?

When you set the water level and pull the knob, the level switch tells the timer that the tub is empty and request water. The timer complies and sends power to the water valve. When the water level is "satisfied", the level switch tells the timer to remove power from the valve and start the "agitation" cycle.

Here's what's happening, the level switch isn't talking to the timer. I think the part number is 22002705, but I'm not sure because I don't have the full model number. Call you local appliance retailer and provide them with the full model number to be sure, OK? Since you already have the machine apart, it'll be easy to replace...

Oh yeah, here's a picture of it... see if this one matches the one on you machine. This might confirm the part number.

And another thing, now that you've experienced a washer flood (ain't it fun?), you might want to consider getting yourself one of these. They're super easy to install and it'll provide that extra bit of insurance against this happening to you again.

Don't forget to rate this solution. And thanks for using FixYa!

Maytag neptune MLG2000AWW does not turn off at end of spin cycle


d sounds as if your having a timer issue here. not recognizing the end of cycle and entering a new one ( bad timer).. as far as time of unlocking this is normal, theres a wax motor holding the door shut for i believe 3 min's.. and the water sloshing sounds is also normal they use a "water filled" balance ring around the perimeter of tub to help with the overall balance of machine

Maytag top load won't drain


during spin is the tub making a slight roaring sound? if so the tub bearing is going bad causing the motor to work harder than normal causing it to heat up. this motor has a thermal protector which shuts it down , although the power to the timer remains therefore the timer still advances. this will require a new bearing and seal kit.
