Question about Maytag LAT3600A Top Load Washer

Maytag LAT8824AAE rinse and spin but won't agitate

I have checked the lid switch and the water level (pressure) switch; both are in working order. I have "checked" the contacts in the timer the best I could and they all seem to have good contacts; however, since I could not open this unit to see if the inside contacts are good. Since it is a mechanical contact and the timer motor itself works, I wonder if I should change the entire timer (unit) at a cost of $120.00+.

Thanks

Did you check to see if you had power coming to the motor during agitate cycle? Use the wiring schematic to check 120V or at least a voltage detector. If you do, then the timer is ok and may be the transmission.Maytag LAT8824AAE rinse and spin but won't agitate - b663148.jpg

Why won't my Maytag Brazos top loader washer, model mvwx600xw1 agitate or spin? Also, the lid lock light blinks once in awhile. Checked lid lock, still no spinning


my first suspicion is in the door lock switch if it goes bad u have no action in wash or spin, next I would first check the water pressure switch as it is the unit that sends the signal to the machine to start wash cycle? if the diaphram does not detect the proper level of pressure due to water level. it will just keep filling and overflow and never start wash cycle. als0 check the water inlet valve, lastly a bad clutch will not allow much in the way of a spin cycle but would not effect the wash cycle? a bad motor coupler on the other hand stops both wash and spin?

My maytag pav2300aww will not spin at all yet it agitates and drains well I was told to clean the agitator so I took it off yet the washer still don't spin the switch look wore out to me so I by-passe


Check the water level sensor and the lid safety interlock. Many washers will work fine with the lid open EXCEPT during the spin cycle, so this is the first logical place to look. Try bypassing the lid safety interlock switch.

I have a Roper ras7133kq1, top load washer. About 3 months ago I replaced the lid switch because it wouldn't drain or spin. Now it will ONLY spin, it won't fill with water or agitate, the only way...


If it won't fill you will need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the back of the unit. The unit will only agitate if it gets the signal from the water level pressure switch.
Here is the valve to order.

Washer won't change gears from water fill to agitate


Hi and welcome to FidYa, I am Kelly,
If it does not agitate or spin suspect the lid switch. Listen for a microswitch click as the lid just opens or closes. No Click = bad lid switch.

If it spins then the lid switch is fine and there is a problem with the water level control pressure switch or possibly the control.

Since you did not include a model number this is my best guess for a 3.2 cu ft machine
MVWC300VW0

This lid switch is item 6 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5519632

The water level control switch is item 4 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5519632&diagram_id=28626536#d28626536

The timer item 7 of the above link can also cause this symptom. You must elimiate the water level control as a possible cause first. There is a FOLDED wiring diagram in the literature packet insde the top panel 3 x 5 envelope you can use to jumper the wires on the water level control switch. If the motor agitates then the water level switch is the problem. If it does not agitate it can be the timer or the motor. (More troubleshooting required via the wiring diagrams following power through the circuit to the motor.)

At this time I think you may just have a water level control switch problem. If you do end up replacing it... the wash tub must be empty or it will overflow when testing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kenmore 80 series washing machine will fill up with water, then nothing happens


Kenmore Ultra Fabric Care Heavy Duty 80 Series washing machine (Model # 110.92389200; Serial # CF 1122814) went through the wash cycle completely, but rinse not the rinse cycle. Motor was going but washer not spinning. Also smelled something like burnt rubber. Could the belt have gone out? Is this something that I can fix myself?

My Maytag top load, looks like PAV2300 but not sure, will not rinse. The water drizzles a bit during the cycle and I hear the timer but the machine does not rinse. I cannot force it into rinse. I have to...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

There is a water level pressure switch inside the top panel that has 3 wires on it and a vacuum line. That pressure switch controls the water inlet valve functions via the timer.
If by chance the pressure sensing line is getting hydraulically locked with water due to some form of obstruction it can cause the symptom you describe.

This pressure switch also controls the start of the spin once the water level has dropped (prevents the wash tub from being a water brake and damaging the motor clutch)

If the water level pressure switch is working normally then the only thing left is the timer.

You can do your own testing of the water level presure switch with an external vacuum hose (3 feet in length) connected in place of the machine hose. (DO NOT drop the machine hose when you disconnect it!)

1. place timer on wash and start filling. LID CLOSED
a. Force air orally into the external line
1) Result fill stops agitation begins

2. place timer in spin LID CLOSED and force air into external line until the pressure switch clicks.
a. START SPIN CYCLE NOW and listen for water pump out
b. release pressure on external air line
1) result tub starts spinning

If it passes the above tests your looking at a timer problem causing your no rinse situation.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Drum fills with water but won't agitate. spins and rinses fine.


Hi.


If it does not agitate check the variable speed motor, the control unit and the transmission.

Check also the lid switch. A defective lid switch may open the circuit and stop the cycle before agitating.

Washer fills wont agitate or spin


supposed to be a problem only with water level switch.

hhhmmmnnn...

try checking the hose that goes from the bottom end to the pressure switch. if there is a hole or a crack or anything loose on the connection. if the pressure won't build up on the water level switch, it wont transfer the contacts to start agitating.

test the water level switch by pulling the hose from the drum end and blow unto it until you hear a click on the water level switch. this should turn your agitator so please be careful and watch out for parts moving rapidly.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804


OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!
