My washer is approx 3 yrs old. When I turn it on it will begin filling then suddenly stops, from best I can tell the cycle is not complete. I can not get it to continue. The lights flash on the fabric selector periodically.
Our power went off for approx an hour (no storm involved) it worked the day before, I dit or not.o not know if that could have anything to do with it. We have reset the circuit breaker. Any ideas?
It's the Control Board..it's not grounded..says so on back of the machine...when power surge hits it shorts out.Get new one and install yourself if you are a handy type person. I bought my part online for $98.15 plus shipping total cost 105 and change.
Having the same exact problem with mine due to a power outage. That exact part is discontinued and they now have an alternate part for it but they will not admit that there was a problem with that part. They wouldn't even document my problem in their systems unless I paid one of their technicians $250 to come out here and look at it to say that was the problem and even then I'd have to pay him another $250 plus $127 for the part to fix it. I found the part on an appliance site for replacement part for $95. It's sad I can buy the same part cheaper from another company than I can from the manufactorer. If I end up replacing my washer I will not go with maytag as they do not stand by their product nor want to admit to consumers there is a problem with one. They just want to ignore the problem and have the consumer to pay for it. DO NOT BUY MAYTAG!

There are electronically turned on and shut off water valves that are controlled by a water level sensor which varies based on what load size/water level you need Small, Medium, or Large. So if the valve gets stuck open since it's an old machine, the water will just keep coming in. But let me ask you this? If you turn the house water value on n NOW...will the wash machine just start filling? If so, it means your valve is stuck open so you would need to replace the water valve which is like $50 online. If the house water valve is on, and when you start the washing machine it starts filling, but just keeps on filling...that's probably because your water level sensor is messed up. So you have 2 things to check...is it the washer water valve is stuck open? or is it the water level sensor that isn't sensing when the washer is full so it just keeps filling it.
Sounds like the Drum Bearings are gone they are **** on Hotpoint..Could be quite expensive depending on age...3 years old you will need a half drum complete with Bearings approx cost £80 plus labour....if more than 4 yrs old then perhaps bearing kit plus 3 hrs labour....Hotpoint give a FREE 5 yrs parts warranty however CALL CHARGE....£105 approx parts are free.....You need to ecide if you should fix or just buy a new one........
Hi i too have the same problem matrix mx194 approx 4 yrs old.On near completion of cycle the 3 center lights out of the 4 on the inside of door flash and a ringing tone indicating a fault. When the door is open there is approx 1'' of water in base of machine and the inside is extremely hot and full of steam.
Larry, The float is generally for overflow conditions and will interrupt power to the fill valve solenoid. If you are not filling completely in the time allowed by the timer, it is most likely a flow restriction in the water supply. Barring other obvious restrictions, the fill valve has filter screens on the inlet side of the fill valve, which is generally the cause of your symptoms. Be careful if you attempt to clean the screens, as the fill valves are very sensitive to debris, and can become stuck open if sediment gets past the screen. I usually replace the fill valve to avoid future problems. Hope this helps.
There are 2 versions of this washer dryer, a cold fill only one and a hot and cold fill version.
If it is the cold fill version, it could be the water level switch that is malfunctioning, cutting off before the correct level is reached, or a sticking water inlet valve.
If it is the other version, then the same thing applys, plus the coil on the valve that controls the rinse cycle could be open circuit.
You need a meter to test the valve coils for continuity..
Make sure that there is actually cold water to the valve, if it is a hot and cold fill model.
Plz rate my solution.
next time it stops raise lid on right side at edge of opening will be a small opening where lid switch is push down switch with pencil or something small enough to fit if it starts working replace switch ..if switch is not at that location may be under hinge left rear if that is the case ck hinge screws
