If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Checkto see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it pluggedin? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch Ifthe lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may notfunction at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housingnear the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or frontof the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need toreplace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse nearthe lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unitwon't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Switch on washer stops at rinse. I have to twist to spin for it to spin. What might be the problem

It would appear that your timer is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Typically when a timer starts to wear out, over time, the plastic steps that are part of the timing sequence can wear down and cause the washer to malfunction.

If you can hear the time motor running but it doesn't ever go into the rinse cycle, then it is most likely the timer motor that is the issue.

If you want to get an idea of the cost for obtaining a replacement timer, you can go to and enter in your complete washer model number into their parts search and then select the "control" link to see a line drawing and parts list for your washer.

Since you didn't provide a model number for your washer, I'll give you the generic instructions for doing the replacement. Again, with the sears link above, you'll be able to see the location and mounting method of the timer on your washer.

This is an easy repair for anyone to undertake, just be sure to unplug the washer from the power outlet before you attempt it. First, remove the timer knob from the front of the washer simply by pulling it straight off. then with either a socket wrench or nut driver, remove the nut and lock washer that holds the timer onto the panel.

Now remove the screws on the backside of the control panel so you can get at the timer. remove any mounting screws/hardware that holds the timer on the panel. Once you've done that, you can just unplug the wiring harness from the faulty timer and plug it into the new one. Now just remount the timer, put the back panel cover back on and fasten the timer shaft with the lock washer and nut, put the timer knob back on and give it a try.

That should get your washer back working properly. I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Open your control panel.
Disconnect then reconnect your timer wiring harness.
If this does not correct the problem,replace the timer.

Need directions to replace timer on Maytag Washer PAV1000AWW.

First unplug washer from power , remove back panel of control panel, there should be a large molex connector maybe 2 of these connectors that plug into timer they usually have a clip that holds them into the timer there may be a release for the timer knob that would be on the back of the timer. Remove any screws holding the timer to the panel. plug connector blocks back into timer, most of the time they will only fit one way and if there is two of these connectors they only fit in the right one , the right way . I suppose if you tried hard enough you could possibly get them to fit in the wrong way or the wrong spot but that would be a lot of work. Reassemble in the same way you disassembled replace back panel of control panel happy washing. By the way how do you know the timer is bad?

Maytag washer won't spin out

Before you try to take the panel apart to remove the timer you need to check that the electrical connections to the pump are o.k. and whether the pump is getting power when it's time to drain. If you have to replace the timer you need to take the back panel off first.
