Set the timer to any off position. Unplug the unit for 10 minutes. Plug it back in and try that. The worst thing
you can do to a Maytag washer is advance the timer yourself...hope this helps.

    Thank you for the idea. Unfortunately it did not result in the washer advancing on its own. Any other suggestions?

    Unfortunately yes I do. Your timer may have got hit with a power surge. Those timers I want to say are about 100 dollars. When it gets to that point you might want to get a tech out there. They are tricky to replace...good luck.

Coninuosly repeats spin cycle, any suggestions how to remedy this? I have to manually cancel the cycle in order for the machine to stop recycling through spin


I had a Centennial washer on a service call doing this just the other day... After putting it trough diagnostics I found no errors and all the washer's mechanics tested okay. After resetting the control by putting it trough the diagnostics mode it continued to repeat cycles without restarting the washer.
  • Try running it through diagnostics and see what error codes are in the memory. (Guide is linked below)
  • What are the codes? do they give any more clues?
  • clear the codes and run a test cycle.
  • does it work?
  • if it checks out properly with the diagnostics it's probably a bad control board...

If it does turn out to be the control try contacting Maytag (Whirlpool) for a parts concession... Whirlpool customer service guide is linked below.
Hope that helps! Good luck!

Wash cycle will agitate 3 spins then nothing for a few minutes then 3 more and nothing again and repeat over and over


you may want to put it through a diagnostics cycle and check for error codes... Maytag Centennial Washer Repair Guide
The tub sensor can cause the washer to act strangely like that. Also there are two mechanical styles of washer branded Maytag Centennial. The model number would help to know we are talking about the one I think we are talking about.
Hope that helps!

Model number would be helpful just so I know what type of Centennial washer we are talking about...
If it's what I think it is, Here is a diagnostic guide to get error codes that may help to figure out the problem:

My guess is the tub sensor...

Maytag centennial top load washer control know tics but does not advance through teh cycles


The cycle dial runs like a clock and advances through each cycle and opens and closes each stage by contacts so I would say that the 1st cycle contact has burnt out which would prevent or in some cases a short will burn out the lot, usually from a power surge so if you don't have the knowledge i'm afraid it is the serviceman. But be assured that you make sure he makes that one of the first points of checking.

Maytag centennial washer will not agitate


If it is belt driven the belt might be broken. It is underneath the washer

Maytag centennial washer not working properly in Normal cycle. After it shuts off there is still water in the bottom of the tub. I can move the dial to another setting such as Casual cycle or Heavy Duty...


We have the same problem. The Normal cycle still works, but after the final spin cycle, water is again added (1 gal est.) and the machine stops. Problem occurred after washing an old 25 x 30 inch rug which partially disentegrated when washed. We were seeing particles of the rug in subsequent wash cycles during drain into laundry tub. Don't know if something is plugged in the washer or if it is something else. In another load after the rug wash, the top of the washer was lifted during the wash cycle. The water problem occurred immediately after lifting the lid as the wash load went through remaining cycles. Maybe this affected the timer? Maytag customer service suggested unplugging power cord to re-set timer. This didn't make any difference. We need a technician to tell us if this is a timer problem or something else?

I have a Maytag Centennial Top Load Washer. When I start a wash load, the machine is starting in a "spin" cycle. It does not matter which cycle I choose. I have let it run through to see if it...


Unfortunately it sounds like your gearbox may be seized. I would strongly recommend getting an experienced maytag service agent in to have a look at it because they are quite difficult to repair. I'm sorry for the bad news, hope it helped though.
