My Maytag LAT9235AAE top load washer fills up with water but does not aggitate or spin. The timer moves thru its cycle like it normally would but nothing is happening. I have checked the dorr switch and the motor for continuity which it has. Check all connection for either burnt or loose connections. Everything is fine. I was told it may be the load switch, but if it was the load switch the timer could not go thru all its cycles right? Water level switch is working because it fills to each level I request. Could it be the timer???? Or what am I missing???
I had the same problem. and I did the suggestion dated 9/26/06. Too another piece of hose and attached it to the water level switch and blew into it. and the machine began aggitating.
My question is...
DO I replace the hose?? or switch??
Now that I have purchased a new machine.
I find a solution, Oh well.

Re: Maytag LAT9235AAE fills with water....
Pt, as long as you verified the lid switch is good, do this simple test. Get a piece of hose the same size as the one going to the pressure switch, connect it and blow into it. See if it starts agitating. If it does, there's your problem..Catriver post back.

without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay
In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!
Pt, Should be a yellow wire from the water level switch according to the diagram I have. See if it has 120V to motor when full. Just take it to ground. Same with the lid switch in closed position, it shows here as yellow, but could be grey, these diagrams are not always accurate. I think you have a level switch or lid switch problem. Check for voltage to the motor when it should be agitating. Catriver..post back.
