Machine will not spin or drain automaticly. I have to manually turn the timer dial to the left side cycles to spin and then pull the knob. It like skips the rinse cycles. Can you help?
Answer Hello D.E. Check and make sure the cold water valve is working. If not, it will stop the unit in the rinse cycle due to the rinse cycle being cold water. If good, replace the timer. If bad replace the water valve.
My manufacture part number for timer doesnt jive with the one listed. In addition to maytag number, there is also a number for kingston.
Answer Dave, according to the model number supplied the replacement timer is part number 22004070. This is a manufacturer replacement part and the parts information may be different however, it is a functional equivalent to the original. Thanks!
My washer filled and wont start the wash cycle, I've adjusted the lid switch and it seems to work fine, but it still wont start the wash cycle and when I turn the knob to spin it drains the water and starts to spin then stops completely about 5 seconds into the spin and it still does not start the wash cycle after it fills up. What could this be?
Answer Les, You're on the right track. It could and most likely is a faulty contact in the timer. Your motor is running, at least 60 to 90 seconds, in order to drain the water, the motor has to run. You may want to check the voltage at the outlet, when the motor attempts to strat you need a minimum voltage of 105 VAC at the outlet. You will also want to remove the drive belt and turn the transmission pulley several revolutions in each direction. This will verify there are no mechanical issues causing an overload on the circuits. If all's OK, then replace the timer.
