Machine will not spin or drain water.


I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.

Maytag Model #MAT13MNAGW When the machine gets to the spin cycle it doesn't spin but makes a buzzing sound. Something like the buzzing sound that a welder makes when the rod sticks.


this means that there is something stuck inside your drain pump.if you still have water in the machine you can use a wet/dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove all the water in the tub.
once that is done check your drain pump for obstructions if there is no obstruction look at the hose that comes down from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump

Makes buzzing noise and won't spin or drain


Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump.  If nothing is stuck in the pump replace the pump.  It won't spin until it drains, so fixing the drain problem will fix the spin.  You can get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel.

Washing machine makes buzzing noise


Check the water pump for an obstruction in the chamber area, your pump may be sticking and that will cause the buzzing sound. The water pump runs during the fill portion of the cycle on several of the selected wash cycles to recirculate the water.

Washer will not go into final spin


Hello there.

The buzzing sound it probably a coin or something stuck in the pump causing it to rattle. Also, it's probably preventing all the water from draining out causing the machine to not enter the final spin cycle, since all the water needs to drain for that to happen.

It's kind of simple to clean the pump.
All you have to do is take the 2 or 3 screws off the bottom of the kick-plate and then take the pump screen off, also known as a coin trap. Clean everything and then try to run it again. I'm almost certain this is your problem.

I get a lot of calls regarding this type of situation. Please try that and see what it does before calling a certified service technician. It can save you $120.
Oh and thanks for using fixya.com. We appreciate your query.
