Maytag Washer LAT8420AAW Dead!

I killed my washer today. I decided it was time to clean underneath the washer, WHILE IT WAS RUNNING!, and got the fuzzy duster caught in the belt. It stopped spinning and blew the breaker. I fixed the breaker and turned the dial to the rinse cycle and the washer partially filled, stopped and now it is dead. The breaker is on, there is power to the plug, the belts will hand turn and do rotate the tub and agitator. There is no hum or any indication that it is getting power. The fuse is a white ceramic looking one, so I can't tell if it is still good. Please help me. Linda

when you say the drum wont spin even manually. Do you mean the drum is too stiff to turn by hand? If so the bearings may have seized up solid. If the drum is free to turn by hand, the pump may be blocked, or burned out & not allowing the water out. If so the circiut wont allow the machine to spin. If thats the case, unblock or replace the pump

Your door lid has a switch that makes these functions work.First open the lid and look at the right side of it.Does it have a arm on it?If it does follow the direction where it is going to hit and now listn closely while your lifting the door up & down at this contact  can you hear it click?If its not clicking  or the arm is broken  off the lid replace  the lid switch/or the broken lid switch arm.

SOURCE: frigidaire front load washer won't spin, belt looks good, makes noise

Don't have much experience on Frigidaire. Is the motor a brush type, capacitor type or one of those new DC types? If it's got brushes and they are ok, then I would say your armature is up the creek. If it's a capacitor type (unlikely) then the capacitor is most likely duff. If it's the new DC type it could be a lot of things, most likely the module which breaksdown and passes an AC component in the motor supply which make the motor tremble but not rotate

Washer has a motor coupler linking motor to transmission. If this motor coupler is broken or has rounded out where it engages the motor and/or transmission gear it will only fill and drain. You can view this coupler by leaning washer back against the wall & looking underneath with a flashlight. There may be a sound dampener panel on the bottom that you have to remove to see it. It is two pieces of white plastic with a rubber grommet in the middle.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

I keep getting an Lr on my washer and it won't unlock what does that mean


I had this problem, and according to the repair guy today, it is the control board. Unfortunately the part is around $200. I had a few other things wrong with mine (and it is only 5 1/2 yrs old), and the total parts were going to cost $550. I ended up going out today and buying another washer.....not a maytag. BTW, if you have clothes stuck in the washer, there is an emergency release cord underneath the detergent dispenser. You will need to remove the dispenser and pull it out....it is a neon green color so it is easy to spot. Good luck.

My Maytag front load washer has a string odor when you open the door. What causes this and how do I fix it?


Most front load washers have an issue like this. Try cleaning the seal around the door with a cleaner that will kill mold and mildew. If that doesn't work, try running an empty cycle or a whites load with bleach added. There was also a known problem with the drain trap I believe it was -- a local appliance parts house could probably give you more details on it.

My maytag washer was makeing noise and we moveved it out and found a black plastic cap that was in two and fluid leak.


The plastic cap goes underneath the washer on the end of the transmission shaft below the belt pulley.
You may have a transmission oil leak causing the noise.
This machine is worth repairing.
It is a better machine than any brand made today.

Where do i have to clean it at?


This is just a factory setting that reminds you to clean the washer to avoid that musty smell. You can buy tablets called Affresh or other similar cleaners for washing machines. They sell these items at Target, Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot. You can also substitue 1 Cup of Bleach in the washer. Then once you add whatever solution you have decided to clean it with you simply select the wash cycle on the machine called "Clean Washer with Affresh" Once you have done this the light should go out. And if you were getting the Sd code it should also be gone. You can also reset this by pushing the button next to the light that says Reset clean washer reminder. Hope this helps!! :)

Maytag Washer Stopped Working


I was about to order a new lid switch assembly, but I decided to try one more thing. I disconnected the wires from the check switch and cleaned the connections - there was a layer of oxidation. The machine started right up after I reconnected the wires and plugged it back in.

You will need to replace the lid switch assembly, not just the fuse. Below is a link that will go directly to an enlarged image of what you need, along with ordering and shipping information.

Washer walking across the floor in spin cylce


This machine uses an auto-adjust for the back portion and they tend to get stuck. Since it sits on a common chassis, insert two standard legs in the back. There are threaded holes that the legs go in. Rebalance the machine. Your problem should stop.
