There was no wiring diagram with the new motor. I did so more testing and found the old green wire now goes to the new blue wire. It is the spray and spin cycle.
Sure would have been nice if Maytag was more helpful. One little note in the directions is all that would have been required....

Thx,
Neil

Neil,
I need to know if the motor came with a wiring diagram when it was purchased or did it just come by itself. You may have to learn how to read the wiring diagram that is stored inside the control panel.

My timer will not advance.


Normally that is a timer motor or motor gear and needs a new timer. Easy replacement, just unplug the washer, take the back off and replace one wire at a time from the old to the new. Then remove the old one and mount the new one. I had to replace mine a while back.

Mine does the same thing (it's doing it right now!). I had it looked at and they said I have to replace the mother board. It's going to cost me $300! It stops beeping and works normally most of the time. When the house is humid, it starts beeping again.
Maytag is total garbage. Our Maytag fridge had to have a new compressor installed after only a few years. Our washer and dryer are only a few years old as well. Never buying Maytag again.

Maytag top load washer growls like its skipping teeth/gears while agitating.


Hello tomlyoung59

it sounds like the coupling between the transmission and the agitator is bad . You know the transmissions now a days have plastic gears in them and if you continue to use it may blow the transmission!
Speed queen is the only one I know with stainless steel parts in the trans and only 6 moving parts in the trans too.

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

Won't Run


The humming usually means the motor is trying to start but can't either because of weak windings or not enough electrical power. Need to check the motor control.

Two year old Maytag Fridge not cooling


pull the power plug for 15 minutes, then plug back in...same problem? tried adjusting temperature control knob (thermostat)? if yes to both questions, freon has escaped out of loop or faulty thermostat. Attempt force start of compressor with jumper clips: pull the power plug then find the two wires into motor and apply 120 VAC from jumper clips. If it spins, then faulty thermostat.
