Chief Walley, you have a temperature control board that sits right behind the timer. A thermistor senses the water and sends the info to this board. The thermistor sits at the water injector. The board may be your problem, I have seen many like this. Keep in mind that the target temp for cold is 75 degrees. If your incomming water is higher than this, you are going to get a warm fill, which they think is cold. Without being there, I would go after the board. Catriver...post back.

Tip up the washer from the front and belt is accessible.If you need to get to the motor, insert a putty knife about 2 inches from either side of the top front seam while pulling up on the lid. The top will flip open, the there are 2 small sheet metal screws ( 1 on each side) near the top of the front panel to remove. Then lift up and pull out the front panel.

Sounds like the tub seal. My MAV2755AWW (Maytag Atlantis top loader) is doing the same thing right now. Here is the solution I found: http://www.applianceaid.com/washer-tub-seal-replacement.php.

Caution: You'll need some tools, like a spanner wrench for your model...order this now of you plan to do this work yourself. You can find it for 15 dollars online, but if you go to Maytag, it can cost you upward of 90 dollars. You can get a tub seal kit for about 60 dollars. The cost for a repair tech to do this job was almost $300...gauge the $75 you going to spend plus the hours of work if you don't know what you're doing, against this cost. Good luck!

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the fault repeats all the time to stop after a said period then it can be a fault on the panel board. check also the power supply to the board, check power to the processor.

Make sure it is level in all directions.

I seriously doubt your motor burned up. They have thermal protectors that shut it down when certain temps are reached. Likely the empellers of drain pump are jambed with toothpicks. You access it easily by removing the front panel. From either edge slide a putty knife inserted about 3/4" along the top edge of the panel. About 4" from the edge you will come into contact with a clip. Remove the putty knife and insert where the clip is. Push in a little and you should feel a springy resistance. Push in harder and you will lift the clip past a cut-out notch at the top of the panel. If you push till the blade comes to a stop you should be able to put your fingers on the top corner of the panel and give it a slight tug to free it. Don't pull too hard just enough to clear the clip. Then repeat procedure on other corner. Once it pops open set it aside but prop it up with something. When they fall over they sound like a gun going off the way they slap the floor. Do your heart a favor. The pump is probably a plastic that you can see through with the help of a flashlight. you will probably have to remove it to get them all out. Prepare for excess water in hoses if tub is empty. If tub is full of water bail as much as possible or use a wet and dry vac. Let me know if you run into trouble.
