Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

With full load of wash when it gets down to 12 minutes left and goes into spin cycle it will spin about 2-3 turns then kick out and it will keep doing that. If you take out all of the wash load the machine will then go ahead and spin out like normal. It's like the weight of load is making it trip out.

Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


If the lid switch is bad, the washing machine wont spin or function properly. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to lift or open the top or front of the washing machine to access the switch. Some washers won't agitate with the lid open either, so let it fill until it starts agitating, then lift the lid. If the washer stops you know you've got a good lid switch. If it keeps going you know you need to test the lid switch. And you need to replace it. Also there is possibility of the motor or transmission drive pulley to be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If that is the case, replace the pulley. However many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn it will stop spinning with full load.


Please get back to us if you have any further query.

Have a nice day.

Will not drain and spin keep beeping with error E20


  1. Remove the 2 screws on the bottom and the front access panel comes off.
  2. Pump is on the right, remove hoses from it, remove pump from machine and remove whatever is in the pump.
Try holding the start/pause and cancel key together for 3 seconds. The door lock, wash, rinse and final spin LEDs should light. Any error codes should be displayed when holding those keys.

Water does not empty all out on normal loads have to run quick rinse and spin to try and empty.


Check the filter, located behind the access door on the front lower left of the washer. If clear, replace pump motor. (did you know that you can turn the washer on and NOT select a cycle, but just touch the spin speed button, then start to get a 12 minute or so spin and pump only cycle, with no water fill?)

Maytag Neptune TL clothes still dripping wet after full cycle


Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good.

No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine.

You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head.

Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached.

""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code.

The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle

I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min. I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM. At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle. You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine. Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

Washer will not drain after wash cycle or the spin cycle


check to see if your pump is slightly plugged with a sock or ?

Your top loader should pump out in about a minute and a half when totally full of water.
