Maytag washers that don’t move into the next cycle of laundry can cause frustration and confusion. This issue can result from a variety of reasons, ranging from straightforward to complex. In this article, we’ll look at the most commonly-cited reasons the Maytag washing machine won’t go on into the next cycle. We’ll also provide step-by-step instructions on how to diagnose and resolve the issue. This guide is designed for experienced DIYers as well as first-timer. It will help you understand how to get your Maytag washer back in good in minutes. The reason that a Maytag machine cannot advance into the next cycle is dependent on the type of washer that you have.
A top-loading Maytag dishwasher isn’t able to advance to drain and spin cycle if the lid switch is broken and telling the timer that the lid of the washer is closed. Maytag washers that don’t finish their cycle could also be suffering from a malfunctioning timer or water-level pressure switches that are not working properly. A malfunctioning or defective drain pump, or the shifter assembly of a top-load vertical modular Maytag washing machine can cause it to stop mid-cycle. Excessive suds can also cause this kind of washer to stop before the cycle completes. A Maytag front-loader can be stopped because of a damaged door lock on the washer, a failed main electronic controller board, or a defective motor control board. This type of washer frequently sends out a digital error signal when the control of the washer detects a problem and shuts down the cycle.
These fixes could aid in solving your Maytag Washer Problem
Replace the washer lid switch: The lid switch on a top-loading Maytag washing machine is a safety switch that checks if the lid of the washer is shut. The lid must be closed when the basket spins. if the Maytag washer does not detect that the lid has been opened it will not spin, and drain following the wash cycle. Some top-load Maytag models require that the lid be shut before the drive motor starts to spin. Top-load Maytag washers that are top-load aren’t able to fill even if the lid remains open. Replace the switch in the event that the lid switch does not detect when the lid is shut.
Change the Maytag washer-shifter assembly: The lower part of the gear box houses the switcher assembly, often referred to as an actuator-in-a top-load washer. The motor inside the shifter assembly switches the drive system from spinning modes to the agitation. The location of the drive system is monitored by a sensor located on the shifter. If the sensor, motor or mechanical components of the shifter assembly fail, the washer stops and emits an error message. If the assembly of the shifter fails, replace it. The Maytag washer’s door lock assembly needs to be replaced. A front-load Maytag washer is equipped with a safety switch with latch and a locking mechanism. If any of these parts fail when the door is open, the door will not be locked; however, if a part fails with the door is closed, the door won’t open. Replace the entire unit if any component fails.
Replace the Maytag washer main control board: The main electronic control board, also referred to the mother board controls the timing and the execution of washer’s component functions. It controls the fill valves along with the drive motor and the drain pump.
Replace the Maytag washer timer: The timer -is also known as a selector — is the dial that you use to set the timer on a Maytag washer with mechanical controls. The timer is what makes the Maytag washer go through its cycles, beginning with filling up to the final spin. Replace the timer if it fails to move the washer through its cycle.
Repair or replace the Maytag washing machine drainage pump: The drain pump is responsible for draining water from the washer during wash cycles. The pump’s bearing may seize and seals can fail or the impeller blades might break. The belt in belt-driven pumps can break, and the pulley can shear off. If the Maytag washer has water the hum could be a sign of a malfunctioning pump. In some cases it’s possible to fix the pump by cleaning it of obstructions as well as fixing wiring problems or replacing an impeller. If the pump isn’t repaired or rebuilt in any way, replace it.
Replace the Maytag washer motor control board: The motor control board is a control circuit located in front load Maytag washer. It’s typically in the lowest part of the washer right next to the drive motor. It regulates the speed of the drive motor, as well as the direction it’s directed to for tumble and spin actions. The motor control panel may need to be replaced in the event that the motor ceases to run.
Replace the Maytag washer water-level pressure switch: The water-level pressure switch is used to determine the level of water in the tub. If the pressure switch for water level is damaged, the washer will not be able to fill correctly. It may not fill at all or it could overfill to the point of overflowing. Change the pressure switch if the device fails to sense or regulate the water level in the washer.
