Thereof, why is my Maytag washer stuck on wash cycle?

If your top load washing machine (or some older front load washers) is stuck on one continuous cycle and will not advance and forward to the next wash cycle, then most likely the washer timer is faulty and needs replacement. The timer on your washing machine controls all aspects of the wash, spin, and rinse cycles.

Does a washing machine have a reset button?

Some machines have a button you push to reset its motor. On a machine without a reset button, unplugging the washer and then plugging it back in often serves as the means to reset it. Although not usually a button, programmable washing machines might have a reset function or position to clear a program problem.

Why does my washing machine not spin all the water out?

If your washer will not spin out all water and clothes are still wet, the drain pump might be clogged with debris or possibly faulty. There could be a foreign object that is stuck in the pump and inside the drain hose. Test to be sure the drain pump is working properly.

Why does my washer get stuck on the wash cycle?

If the drain control is broken or the drain is clogged, the washing water won't be able to escape and the washing machine will stall trying to start the rinse cycle. You may be able to clean and readjust your drain control components, or you may have to replace them entirely so they can start functioning again.

Why is my Maytag washer not spinning?

One common cause why a Maytag top load washer won't spin is due to an uneven load or jammed clothing. Larger items or loads tend to settle on one side of the washer drum during a cycle. Try to redistribute the load or remove a few articles of clothing and run the spin cycle on your washer again.
