Our Maytag washer everything works except when it goes to wash and rinse cycle it shuts off. we then have to drain the water. Water fills properly and drains properly. Tub turns freely when empty. I have ordered a new control board AP4026827 (22002989) Control board from your company and am asking if that will solve the problem or is something else needed? Thanks Glenn
ANSWER Glenn, Before you install a new control board, first check and flush the water faucets, The fill hose and fill valve screens. Make sure they are free of any debris or replace them. 12001413, Y013783, 96160. Roll the control panel forward, and disconnect the air tube from the water level switch 22002921 and blow in the end of the tube, this should clear any sediment or debris that may have accumulated in the tube or bell. When the washer is started and the machine fills with water, the control board allows a specific amount of time to pass(12 to 15 minutes) then the board sends out a "check" pulse, if the pulse doesn't return to the control board, the control interprets this as an overfill / flooding situation and turns the fill valve circuit off, and you have to start the cycle over again. If the water level switch doesn't "close" due to a slow fill or a clog in the air tube, the pulse doesn't return to the control board.
