Question about Washing Machines

Maytag heavy duty top loading washing machine stopped and won't restart

My machine was running and had stopped because the blanket and mattress pad (very thin) were out of balance after washing but before the rinse cycle had started. I moved the items around to balance the load & the machine started up again but stopped a minute later.

I moved the things around again but now the machine won't start. If I reset the load (it slides up and down between small and extra large), it restarted briefly when set as high as it could be to reach the extra large load volume.

Any ideas? This machine is 20 years old and we've never had any problems with it. I could at least use a one time fix to spin out the load so I can dry the stuff. Since it's a blanket, it'll be almost impossible to take out & try to wring it myself!

Thanks!

Maytag heavy duty super capacity washer - stopped mid cycle. Won't drain water. Won't agitate. Water fill function works. Any ideas what to check? Do you know where the fuse is located?


It is a computer problem. My daughters machine did the same thing and the company came out and replaced the computer board and it fixed the problem.

Washer stopped washing at rinse


Could it be ul? Sounds like it got out of balance. Try opening the lid and rearranging the contents. If you are washing heavy items like coats or big blankets or comforters, be sure to chose BULKY setting and low or no spin. Hope this helps!

Getting the machine to spin heavy load


you have a bad belt, your drain is too high
you can change the belt but you may need to get a high velocity pump if your drain tube is much higher than 1 foot above the machine

Ariston front loading washing washing


Believe it or not.....its almost always the cloths ( heavy blankets) that one places inside.
TRY:: In the spin cycle if the load is unbalanced the TUB will rock and make that "loose drum out of alignment" noise. STOP the machine and open the door ( IF IT IS A TOP LOADER ) realign the cloths (heavy or more then one blanket) so that it is EVENLY spaced through out the tub.Start the machine again.If it does it again, stop the machine and REALIGN the cloths (blanket !!) again.
p.s. there is a simpler way of doing it but I don't want you to loose your hand in the process.

Kenmore Series 80 top loading washer that doesn't spin or agitate


Unplug machine, remove water pump and motor, behind the motor is a coupler, take broken parts to your local appliance parts store. Costs 16 bucks, replace the broken parts with new ones, reassemble machine. Never ever do a blanket/comforter in your machine again!!

Washer not finishing it's rinse/spin cycle


Run any load - large or the least bit bulky (like sheets) on the "BULKY" cycle. It takes longer, but the machine completes the wash. This shouldn't be the way it works. I love the Neptune TL for its retro look and lack of Maytag's classic big cranky knob. Too bad it runs like ****.

Stopped operating in the spin cycle


With a heavy blanket you probably have an out-of-balance condition which doesn't let the machine spin out and drain. This would keep the door lock from opening. Try hitting the Stop button twice. This should cancel the cycle and let the door lock open after a little while. Then either redistribute the load or add some items and run a Spin and Drain cycle.
