Hello there, every function works, except

Hello there, every function works, except somethimes once water has been topped up, the washing cycle does not engage and just sits there, l can skip to the spin dry cycle which works, but does not wash. So, l switch off at power outlet, and switch on after an hour and then it works. At first l though it was because it was not sitting level on the floor, but l levelled it does the same thing. It stalls at start of the 'wash' cycle.

I had the same problem. I unplugged the machine for a while (overnight) and it then worked properly when I plugged it back in. Probably just a circuit board issue that was cleared with the power removed.

SOURCE: major shaking during spin cycle

I have the exact same washing machine with the same problem. It is a poor design and Maytag knows it. We should be entitled to a refund. This was a very expensive machine.

Kenmore Series 70 Top Loading Washing Machine Model # 110.20722991 Serial# CL 1134809 Hello, Our washing machine is leaving our clothes soaking wet when finished. What could the problem be?

2 things are possible. Can you tell if the spin cycle is engaging? If the spin cycle is not engaging properly or very fast, then the water will not leave the clothes. less likely is that the machine is not draining the water away properly or fast enough.

Skipping wash cycle

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Lid Switch Assembly

If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly

Water Inlet Valve

If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board

If the washer stops mid-cycle the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other causes first such as the lid or door switch and other components.

It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.

Pump is blocked or shot

Pressure switch made telling the machine it is full of water hence no spin.

Drop hose into bucket to drain the water off and the machine should spin, you may be better dragging the washer to an outside door and let all of the water run away at once .

Make sure that the drain hose is unclipped from the back of the machine so that the bottom of the hose is as low as you can get it
