Maytag Mav-1 Slow Spin

I have a 2-year old Maytag Mav-1 that is not spinning fast enough to pull the water out of the clothes or even empty the fabric softener bowl. It agitates well and the brake doesn't seem to be stuck. Before I start tearing into it, I'd like to see if you have a good game plan for troubleshooting this problem.
The owners manual is pretty vague and Maytag won't answer any questions until I open my checkbook.
Thanks!

What will cause the washing machine to not spin fast enough to spin the clothes dry or not spin the fabric softener out of the agitator cup?


If your towels are coming out the dryest it is probably a problem with it being off balance. Did you make sure that the clothes are even placed in the washer. If you have a bunch of heavy stuff on one side and light stuff on the other side it could cause the same problem.

While in the spin cycle, the drum does not spin fast enough to empty the water out??


Could be a "clutch" that is not working right. spin should remove most of water from clothes and ALL water from the tub, but if there's a clogged filter at the pump, remove and clean it, or have a service man who can get beneath the tub chassis clean it. Sounds like you need a service agent to come and fix your Maytag.

Will not spin fast enough on final spin cycle to


ITS POSSABLE ITS NOT PUMPING FAST ENOUGH. CHECK THE DRAIN HOSE AND MAKE SURE IT HAS NO KINK. IF THATS OK IT MAY HAVE A BUILDUP OF SOAP. RUN A EMPTY CYCLE WITH NO SOAP. IF THAT DONT WORK YOU NEED A REPIARMAN TO CLEAN OR REPLACE THE PUMP.

Water left in clothes


The shaft was designed to rotate into 2 directions: one for agitation, one for spinning. The spinning direction is controlled by a mechanism from the clutch engagement. When your plastic pulley wears out, it effects the mechanism to spin. The driving force for spinning is slipped, therefore the spin is weak As a matter of fact, the water remaining in clothes n in turn discharges to the bottom tube

Maytag washer won't shift to rapid spin dry (only slow back & forth)


Hi Jim, you issue could be caused by a couple either one of a of the following,
1) Draining problem, cant empty the water from the machine within the prescribed time limit - preventing the spin programme to commence. check pump filter is clear and waste water is pumping from the end of the waste hose, the hose itself could be blocked with limescale and detergent residue.
2) Unbalanced load, most machines wont spin 1 item, its a safety thing, if a machine spins with one heavy item it puts the drum out of balance resulting in excessive drum movement possibly damaging the inside of the machine and put indue stress on the bearings. Try putting it on a spin cycle with no clothes in

Unbalanced load detection can also be caused by a faulty motor tacho, this usaually positioned at the rear of the motor, this sends an electrical signal to the programmer telling when it is 'Safe' to spin. There also the posibility that the programmer is not reading the tacho signal or misinterpriting it.

Kenmore 90 Series washer needs two spins to remove water


We have exact same washer. It is 11 years old. We are at a point where we have to spin it 7 times and then still isn't too dry. It dies yesterday a very loud death. Mentioning this here because it could be a foreshadowing of your Kenmore 90's future.

Won't empty water slow spin in spin cycle


It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

Washer won't spin fast, only slow


tyr removing the lower acees panel from the uint , ther is a "button trap" located there to catch debris from entering pump assy, chances are its clogged and if it cant drain all the water it wont go into high speed spin, also you MUST use an HE detergent. HE detergent specifically designed for front loading washers
