In order to replace my Maytag's timer part, how to I open the top part of the machine to replace this timer part. Appreciate your response. Thank you, Mr. Terrones.
Answer Hello Mr. Terrones. There are clips under each corner of the control panel assembly that need to be pushed in, with a straight blade, to release the panel. Hope this helps.

In your response to Tommy's problem regarding the tube which is connected to the sensing or temperature switch (part no. w10248240). You suggested blowing into the tube. I blew into it and this worked once before however this problem has recurred and there appears to be an obstruction when I blow in it. I do not see any kinks. The tube appears to directed to the bottom right side of the washer. How do I get at the other end of the tube to see if the tube has a kink in it. Thanks
Answer Hello Rick,
This hose goes to the pressure chamber on the side of the outer tub. You cannot access the inside of the chamber but if you pull the inner tub you can access the opening to the other side of the chamber. To get to the outer part of the outer tub you need to open the control panel and remove the goldtone clips that retain the cabinet to the frame. Un-plug the lid switch and set the cabinet aside. You can then view the pressure switch hose and the pressure chamber.
What are your thoughts of using new versus rebuilt timer units?
Answer Hello Rick. You should always use new parts vs. rebuilt if they are available.
Maytag washer model MVWC6ESWW1 will not agitate or fill with water. But it does spin. Service Tech. suggested new timer (W10243947), this did not fix the problem. Any suggestions?
Answer Ken, since the washer won't fill or agitate, you would want to start at the water temperature/level switch W10248240 and check the air tube(blow in the end of the hose after you disconnect it from the switch) If the circuitry inside the switch has failed, the washer won't fill and agitate. There have been several issues with this style switch. That's where we recommend you start.
washer will not fill or rinse ....spins out and drains fine....just replaced the timer....no change.....what else could it be ? thanx
Answer Steve, It's more likely the Temperature/ Water level switch W10248240. If you're sure the faucets are ON (Open). There have been a few issues with this style switch over the years.
