My Maytag washing machine model # MVWC5ESXW0 will only spin. Unit will not fill with water or agitate. I tried all the cycles and I found out that in HEAVY DUTY cycle, before the first rinsing area, it agitate for few minutes ( by the way, I manually put water in it because I thought maybe its just the water problem). It also drain and spin. Can you pls. help me to find out what the problem is or is there any parts that I need to purchase. I just can't afford calling a repairman now, after being hit by super storm Sandy.
ANSWER Hello Kazzandra,
The first thing that you want to do is to check the screens on the water valve W10175893 to make sure that they are not clogged up. Clogged water valve will not allow the unit to agitate. The pressure switch has to be satisfied before the unit can agitate. Also check to make sure that you are getting power to the water valve when the unit is calling for water. Should be 120vac to the water valve.
