Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9706
It fills with water fine, but then when it gets to the agitation or any other cycle it will only work about 30 seconds then stop. If I turn it off and wait about 20 minutes to turn it on again, it works about another 30 seconds. This is a darn slow way to get the washing done. Whats wrong? It does this til the very end of the spin cycle. The only time it does not stop early is when it is filling with water.
It sounds as if there could be an overheating problem in the control electronics - perhaps just due to one faulty component that could be replaced, perhaps the whole board is faulty. If you have a user manual (sorry i had no luck finding one online), then just check if there is a "reset" - usually would be either unplugging the machine and leaving it for a few minutes, or pressing and holding a combination of buttons. (ask again if you don't have a manual, I can look more but Maytag manuals are hard to find) Are you keen to try and investigate this further yourself? If so please ask again and we can try and talk you through opening it up and what to check. You will most likely need a selection of screwdrivers, a flashlight, a digital camera and a few hours. If you would rather get a service agent in to have a look, please post back with your general area and we can hopefully locate one for you. It sounds repairable. Hope this helps :)
