Maytag top load washing machine repair


It sounds like your Maytag (now owned by Whirlpool) Actuator needs to be replaced. Last year our Maytag Centennial top loading washer Model MVWC300XW0 would not drain all the water and cloths would be soaking still. Doing some online research, I came across some very helpful video regarding replacing your Actuator.

The only thing I would recommend to future installers is get your Technician Manual located just inside the case (front panel) first of your Washer. The Technician Manual is taped inside your washer in a plastic bag. Once you replace this Actuator part, I recommend that you run the Calibration cycle on your washer. It is needed anytime you replace a motor, motherboard or pump.

Here are two videos describing how to change/replace the Actuator but these videos are basically for the MVWC300XW0 model. I'm sure if you search for your model, there will be other videos as well.

Two videos on how to replace your Actuator:

Best of Luck!

Washer is stuck on spin cycle and advance will not operate

Timer is not working correctly, look for a used time on Amazon, or Repair Cost about $100. new/used No bad to replace, take the top off, you will see the electircal connector, and hardware that holds a timer in place. Check to see that connector is pushed togeather good while your in there.

Our Maytag A 612 does not spin and makes a loud noise. It is cost effective to pursue repairing or not?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

You have one of the work horses that was built before Whirlpool bought out Maytag.

IF the base and cabinet are in good shape it just might be worth keeping. Not that I am partial or anything but I still have a 1980 model washer and a 1973 (A606) model dryer that work fine both maytags. They are still serving me well.

There are few things that can cause it not to Spin
1. The motor is not reversing (motor itself a problem)
2. The timer contacts have failed internally.
3. The brake is locked under the large pulley on the bottom of the machine.
4. The radial bearing under the transmission has failed and locked up. (posible source of LOUD noise like a roar) I would like a better explanation of the loud noise.

I would honestly invest in the cost of a service call to get an on stie evaluation of repair costs.

On a machine that age expect the following recomendations for parts replacement by the repair tech.
1a. Radial bearing
2a. Drive belts (2)
3a. Tub bearing
4a. Motor mount rollers

Other possibilites
a. injector kit
b. tub fill hose
c. timer

If he looks at it and comes up the with same needed parts list 1a - 4a above and a recommendation for repair.... Fix it because there are very few machines out there today that will perfom and last like your washer.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Washer wont cycle thru

There is either a kicker solenoid that fires every minute to kick a gear, or a tiny AC 60Cycle Induction motor in there that probably burned out. You will need to fix by replacing that solenoid or motor, or the entire timer.

A spider or bug could also nave gotten in there and stopped the motor rotating 60x a second, but if a solenoid it burned out.

Timers cost $30-80.00 and can be bought at Sears, or a good appliance parts store (online too) all you need is model and serial#

Good Luck
