Rinse & Spin do not work in Regular and Permanent cycles and works fine in Delicate cycles. I hear timer ticking sound well in all the cycles
Answer Ksam, You will need to check a few circuits at the timer and water temp. switch, with a multimeter. At the timer, you'll need to unplug the power cord, select the rinse cycle and pull out the timer knob, You should read a "closed" circuit between SW (blk) and 5B (blu) ibn the rinse setting on all three cycles. At the water temperature switch with any "cold" rinse setting You should read a "closed" circuit between terminals 7T (wht) and 3 (ylw) and 7T (wht) and 4(orng). You also want to disconnect the air tube from the water level switch and make sure it is not clogged with debris, by blowing in it. Here's some meter usage information, should you need it [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html]
I replaced the lid switch, the fuse, and the timer control. Still does not run? Help
Answer Hi James. Lift and support the unit. Remove the belt and then see if the washer runs. If not- did you mark the old lid switch assy mount to the top before removing it ? It is a good practice to use a black felt marker and mark the mounts side and bottom so when replacing the new lid switch, it is placed exactly where the original one is bolted with the 5/16" screws. This aligns the lid switch and the lid lever engagement properly. Carefully lift the lid. At approx. 1" you should hear a click of the lid switch/ lever engagement. Then check at the motor to see if you have 120 vac on the motor blk wire terminal wire to ground. Disconnect the #7 gry wire and the #16 y/blk. wire from the pressure switch and temporarily connect therm together. Now return power and see if the motor runs in spin. Use a same size hose and blow back into the pressure sw. part # 207364 (should be available June 26-July 3) and see if the diaphragm closes and allows the motor to run now. If it runs only when the leads are together then the pressure switch internal contacts are bad. If not then make sure the black wire on the motor terminal has 120 vac to ground , if not then check the wires from the timer and the connections. The pressure switch closes the neutral to the motor circuit when the tub is full. If so then the motor sw. part # 205131 or the motor part # 12002351 needs replaced. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Thank You.
My Maytag topload washer will fill with water at beginning of the cycle then nothing until the timer advances to the rinse mode where it will agitate, drain and spin. I checked the other Cycles and the same problem occurs. Therefore, do you think the Lid Switch or Timer is bad?
Answer Robin, Are you sure the lid switch is being activated properly at the start of the cycle? The timer uses the same internal contacts in the wash cycle, as it does in the rinse cycle. So the issue should not be in the timer or the motor, at this point. Check and make sure the speed selection switch button is pressed and locked in the down position. If all's OK the issue would have to be in the timer cam wheel riser and you'll need to go with the timer 22001024 Thanks
