The machine suddenly stop working right after finishing water had filled (the next action should start its washing cycle). Then there is no response, just as electricity is disconnected from it. Thank you for help.

Try opening the lid a couple of inches and close it down a few times,do you hear a clicking sound?if not the lid switch is bad.on the right side of the lid you should see a piece of plastic connected to the lid that fits into a hole in the top of the washer,this hits the lid switch,stick a pen or something in the hole and see if the washer works,send the model number and i'll tell you what switch you have on your washer,the model number is on the back wall of the opening where you put the clothes into the washer or to the left of the lid switch.if your lid opens strait up and backwards the number is directly under the lid when it's in the open position

My Maytag Performa washing machine will not stop filling with water and start the next cycle


you need to unplug it from the power when it does that to see if it stops filling. That will tell you if it is a valve issue or a problem with the controller

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

    Washing machine begins the wash cycle going immediately to the agitate cycle, without filling up with water first.
