Maytag top load will not agitate and only spins on delicate cycle


could have a bad motor,there are two sets of windings in the motor or low and high speed.the delicate works on the low speed and everything else works on the high speed winding,you can check with a meter to make sure 120 volts is going to the motor.sometimes the motor will just hum and nothing else.you'll have to look at the wiring diagram to see what color wires are going to the high speed winding,if 120 volts is coming down but nothing happens you have a bad motor.

I have a Waterway Spa Pump Executive 56 Frame 4hp Dual Speed PF-40-2N22C in a Catalina spa that recently developed an issue. The pump will not start in low speed, just makes a humming noise, but it will...


the problem with the sound is the bearings inside the motor are going out. i have the same pump and i have to replace the motor. replacing the bearings is very hard and will cost you about the same after you carry the motor and new bearings to a shop to be pressed in. hope this helps!!

High speed on pump motor just hums then trips breaker. low speed works fine.


possibly trying to draw more power than the breaker and wiring are rated for.. check maximum amperage draw from motor, then check breaker.

If breaker is rated lower than High speed amperage draw, then have a qualified electrician install proper size of wiring and breaker.

If not, then the high speed coil of motor may be defective, check for warranty of unit.

Hi JOEY JIGSAW,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: 2ND MOTOR ON TUB IS HUMMING BUT NO WATER MOVMENT REPLACED WATER TODAY #1 MOTOR IS WORKING IN LOW AND HIGH SPEED BUT #2 MOTOR IS NOT KICKING ON

Definately an electrical problem. First check the switches, if you find a bad switch replace it. Check the wire connrctions. A bad connection will cause great frustration. If you've been carefull with the first two steps and it's still not working it's time to see if # 2 motor has siezed up. Do this only if you know what you're doing. It requires disconnecting the wires to the motor and applying 110 volts from another source directly to the motor wires. If the motor just hums and gets hot, it's time to replace it or take it to a small motor repair shop. It might be wise to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.
