Washer wont drain
Model Number: Mah8700AWW Brand: Maytag Age: 5 - 10 years
I have a Maytag MAH8700AWW front loading washer that will not drain. I have done the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.
1)I removed drain pump and checked for obstructions. none found
2)I tested drain pump with 110 volts and worked fine.
3)I ran washer through quick wash with a voltage tester connected to the input to the drain pump. voltage was between 24-25 Volts the whole time. Never got the 110 volts that is necessary to run it.
4)I ran the output control board test in service mode and still got the same 24-26volts on the drain pump.
5) I connected a separate 110 volt supply with a switch to the pump and ran the washer through a full wash cycle and manually activated the drain pump when necessary. Washer finished full cycle with no problems so that means the water level switch is okay.
I inspected the control board and could not find any frayed wires or damage. My question is do I need a new control board or am I missing something?
Thank you in advance for all your help,
