Washing machine wont turn on
Our Maytag MAV 8000 top loader suddenly will not start. Has power to outlet, has power to washer control panel. Does not send power to motor from panel indicating trouble in control panel.
I think it may be a bad timer but other than repair shop have no way to know for sure.

Not finding what you are looking for?
Intermittent Motor Overload Maytag MAV8000AWW -- The washer runs a cycle or two without incident. Then suddenly, at the start of the next spin or agetation cycle, the motor hum is abnormally loud and after about 10 or 15 seconds, the thermal breaker kicks out. The centrifugal switch appears to be in good condition, so I don't think the problem is a stuck-on starter winding. Also, the owner claims that the hum and shut-down have occured in the middle of aggitation and/or spinning (with the motor already up to speed and initially running normally). The mechanism, drum, and agitator turn freely by hand. Belt, pulleys, and motor slide mount/spring assembly all look OK.
I suspect an intermittent mechanical problem (e.g., the brake occasionally not disengaging, something binding or jamming intermittently in the transmission, etc.). Is there a commonly encountered problem with this design that sounds like what I'm describing? If so, what parts are typically required?
Thank you in advance for your feedback.
