You may have an obstruction in the pump, a faulty belt, or a pump failure. If the washer is unable to remove the water as it spins, centrifugal force would cause water to exit over the top and onto the floor. As the washer spins, slowly at first, water is extracted via the pump running at full rpm. As the water level decreases, so does the weight of the load, so the tub will begin spinning faster. If the pump fails in its job to remove the water, the weight is more than the drive system can handle, The clutching action slows the rpm of the motor which, in turn causes the motor to automatically shut off on its thermal protector. After the motor sufficiently cools, the thermal protector closes and the motor resumes the cycle. If the problem does not resolve itself, the motor will continue to cycle off and on, which could lead to a motor failure. Also, rarely a clothing item may attempt to breach the top during such an episode, and cause a jamming of the inner and outer tub and even, subsequently make its way to the pump, so inspect there for foreign material.

Tip: If clothing is in the pump or stuck up by the tub collar, the cause is due to overloading the washer. Cutting back on load sizes will prevent this from happening in the future.

My maytag washer is not holding the water and it drains it before it washes. I tried it at different water levels and it kept on draining the water every time I start it.


Check and make sure your drain from the washer is not pushed to far down in to the WALL DRAIN PIPE Because if it is the water will SIPHON out faster than you can fill.. Pipe should only be down about 6 inches in to drain and secured... Hope this Helps

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 200. In the beginning of the cycle, it makes a weird 'whirrrring' noise that goes away right after the first wash cycle. It's getting water. It's very noticable and I worry...


I have a quiet series 300 and it does that, too. I think it just balances the load before washing and is normal. I found this in the manual:
Normal Sounds
Your new washer may make sounds your old one didn

Maytag PAV2300 - Washer agitates during wash. on spin cycle motor runs and belt is fine, but drun does not spin. Water drains. Why does it not spin?


Hi, The most common problem is the thrust bearing kit. The thrust bearing is located on the lower shaft of the transmission. The kit includes a new pulley and hardware. The part #12002213 also includes instructions.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Maytag Neptune model # mah6500aww: makes banging noise and causes machine to move


A loud banging sound in the pipes is usually caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The banging happens as the water hits the valve that prevents it from going any further. If the kinetic energy is great enough, it can actually cause a pipe to burst or explode at the end. If a valve is closed near the beginning or in the middle of a system, the water keeps flowing after that point, and it can actually create a vacuum. This vacuum can cause a pipe to implode if the stress is too great. Roaring type noises may be coming from a spin bearing. This bearing probably had the grease washed from it because of a tub seal leak.
Squeaking sounds in a new washer are usually caused by the new parts getting broken in, and will usually go away after several washes.
The sounds of water gurgling, slurping, or sloshing during a spin cycle are usually caused by the drain pump pushing the water out of the washer tub.
Too much water pressure can cause a whistling or squealing sound. Adjust the hot and cold intake water valves to relieve this sound.
Metallic clinking sounds during spin or agitation may be the result of drive train components meshing during speed changes or after a pause.
Swishing or swooshing type of sounds may be caused by water and suds trapped between the tub and basket during a spin cycle, and will usually clear up as the water is drained from the washer

Check to make sure your drain hose has a loop at least as high as washer top.  If the drain hose is not looped higher than tub water will continue to drain and it won't stop filling.  If it doesn'y reach the correct fill level it won't agitate.

Washer Will Not Hold Water


What height is mentioned in your manual for your drain pipe (the outlet pipe for your machine) There should be a height (before u bend it downwards into the drain) or the water will just flow out........... And do not over-load your washer.
