Cool Maytag front load agitates, no spin
Model Number: MAH4000AWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Maytag front load MAH4000AWW. Runs through all the cycles agitates and drains but will not spin. When it's time for the final spin I can hear a humm ( I assume that's the pump) and that's it. If you have any Ideas for a fix, great, and if it involves lifting up the top cover of the machine or any other tricky stuff, please include instructions for that too! Thanks, Michael

Hi Michael

You have one of the most troubled washers that anyone ever made, which you probably realize by now.

Rather than try to take you through all the possible areas that cause your problem I would suggest the following.

1. Look through the service manual, particularly the section on not spinning on pages 3-6 to 3-7. Here it is.


http://www.servicematters.com/maytag...s/16010061.pdf

Note that it will also have instructions for you to open the machine when you need to.

2. Use the search function to look at all the other posts on the MAH 4000 on this site, with particular attention to the discussion of failure of wax motors and the subsequent failure of the control board. If you have not replaced your wax motors you will need to.

3. Look at the service library from Maytag and look specifically at the items involving the motor/motor control conversion kit and the resistor failing.

http://www.servicematters.com/maytag...tml/index.html

All this should give you a good starting point if you want to diagnose and fix this problem yourself. The door lock mechanism is a good suspect here, along with the wax motors if they are original.

Good luck, keep us updated.

You've heard the phrase "Temper-Temper now". I have a housemate, John, that likes to slam doors. It doesn't matter what kind of door, be it a car, bedroom or washer machine door....umm hmm. After determining that the control board and wax motor were in good working order, I remembered that several years ago I had them replaced (about $375.00), so no surprise that they were still working, so what the hell isn't working? I accessed the wax motor/door lock stuff under the hood and fiddeled with the motor and white plastic door lock thing and noticed that the center rod that is supposed to engage a switch on the right side wasn't aligned just right and wasn't hitting the switch. After I got things realigned, I did a test spin run with everything still opened up and son of a .... IT WORKED!!!!! Yeah Me! and it didn't cost a thing! My other housemate Wayne and I explained to "John the Slammer" to never slam the washing machine door again! Thanks for everyone's help. Another possible solution for others to consider....Don't slam the door.

Fantastic, glad it worked out for you, and really glad you had replaced the wax motors and board.

As I said, it is a troubled machine but yours should last a good long time as long as "Slammin John" does not live up to his name.

Thanks also for updating us, now we have another diagnostic to consider on the Neptunes
