Well I just changed the capacitor on my washer. It would fill with water and stop. My first thought was lid switch it checked out good. Next timer but usually if you switch to another type wash cycle it did not work so I thought timer must be good. I tried to get it to pump out so I pulled pump off shaft and it turned free( I have direct drive to pump no belt) Two metal band clip on to hold pump and motor shaft turned free. I then checked capacitor it would not charge and was not storing charge. The capacitor can shock you very bad do not touch metal connectors till you discharge stored voltage. I dropped water level by just putting end of drain hose in five gallon bucket I had to dump several buckets. I ended emptying by scoping water out with big plastic cup into bucket. I have no bottom on my Maytag so I just leaned it against the wall to get to pump and capacitor. A couple times when I tried to start with washer full of water, I would hear a buzz sound at bottom but not every time. Washer has been working great for 2 weeks now. Make sure to unplug washer before working on it.

Don't try to fix it yourself it could cost you more in the long run but if the shaft isn't turning the propeller more than likely there is something in the pump stopping it like a small sock for example call a repair tech worse case is u need a new pump

It happened to mine also. Nothing came out of a pocket, either. A scarf worked it's way in somehow and got caught up in the gear that moves the agitator. Lift off the center cap, loosen and remove the 11mm bolt, then lift the agitator straight up... If you don't lift straight up from the middle it will seem like something else is holding it.

From the Maytag site: To remove the code, press pause or cancel button twice and the power button once. If the code is still displayed, unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute. Items were detected in the washer during the Clean Washer cycle. Remove items from the drum and restart the Clean Washer cycle.
