Default Maytag Centennial; fills but won't agitate or advance.
Model Number: MVWC6ESWW1   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years

Maytag Centennial commercial technology Washing Machine. Model # MVWC6ESWW1. Fills fine, but then won't agitate and the timer will not advance. If manually advance timer it will pump out water and spin dry and shut off, but won't advance to an extra rinse (that is, when the extra rinse is set 'on').

Note; The motor can not be heard running when it won't agitate so it is not a problem with the agitator. It seems to be a problem with whatever electronic module tells the motor to turn on. And it makes no difference which setting it is on it still won't agitate, but it does spin like it is suppose to, but only if I manually advance the timer.

I am uncertain if it is the water/temp sensor, the timer, or the control board that attaches to the timer. Parts are too expensive to do the trial and error replacement method and I am unfamiliar how to test the electronics. (Taking apart and removing the parts is easy. Maybe I can take them into a shop for testing. Is that a possibility?)

Purchased from Home Depot aprox 18 months ago.

Very likely the problem is a bad load sensor (#4 on the diagram).

If you'll order it from APP and it would not fix the problem, then you can easy return it.

- The sensor switch Part number: AP4459660

Part number: AP4459660



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for MAYTAG MVWC6ESWW1 AUTOMATIC WASHER | AppliancePartsPros.com

Hi Gene I have the same washer and it only hums. Wont spin agitate. It will only fill. Checked motor coupler its fine motor spins fine no looseness to it. the shaft on the transmission (i assume) will not spin to the right I can not spin the agitator nor the tub right now. what is the most likely problem? I asume not the brake as the tub does not move, but I dont know what to check next? any help is appreciated thanks.

Remove the motor and put it aside, living the wires connected. By pass the lid switch and turn the washer on to see how the motor will perform.

If the motor will run fine, replace the transmission.

If the motor will keep humming, check the motor capacitor.

If the capacitor is good, replace the motor.

- The capacitor Part number: 8572717

Part number: 8572717



- The motor Part number: 661600

Part number: 661600



- The transmission Part number: W10140307

Part number: W10140307
