I have a washing machine that starts to fill and then stops. Obviously i want to buy the correct part from you so I checked the resistance on the water inlet valve and it appears to be okay. i then looked for burnt connections on the control board-nothing. any other ideas on what to do next?
I see that the timer is what you show as next potential culprit. is there a way to test this or other parts with digital multimeter?
Answer Craig, The next check should be at the fill hoses and valve. If you haven't yet, check and clean the debris screens in the fill hose and inside the fill valve inlets. Then test the water level switch circuits 22002921 or 22002994 (depending on serial number) with the air tube disconnected. You would also want to blow in the end of the hose, this will clear any debris or sediment in the tube. If the control board doesn't see a change in the switch circuits on the pressure switch within a specific time, the control "assumes" the washer is flooding and shuts down. Also a resistance test is not as accurate as needed, you can get a proper resistance value, and the solenoid not lift the plunger in the valve body, and this washer is temperature controlled, it fluctuates the valves off and on the maintain a minimum water temperature, if there's a failed solenoid plunger, when the control cycles the power to the other solenoid, if it doesn't lift the washer will stop filling and then shut down after a few minutes. Yes, you can test all the components within this washer with a digital multi meter.
Using the wiring diagram and test information on the tech data sheet in the console, you shouldn't have any issues.
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.
