Hi

Though I believe the issue is with the pump motor assembly that is not responding and so should be replaced however, as you want to check the agitator assembly then please check this video for step by step instructions on removing the agitator assembly:


Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Try unplugging it wait a minute and replug it in. This will sometimes reset the main board.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Methinks you could do with a manual- for now and later! It should tell you.
Now- unfortunately FixYa cannot provide manuals direct - members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C.

This being a new unit you can check the manual and confirm if there is a HOT WASH. If so all what is needed is to SELECT THE HOT WASH which normally if the best wash and the longest. In this case the wattage will be specified and also the program cycle of the hot wash will be indicated.
I am not sure of this model and so needs to confirm if there is a heating element for the hot wash cycle.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the water fills fine then the problem is with the temperature switch that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

one of the above. Tip the washer back and turn the main drive pulley while spraying a little WD-40 in there. That will quiet down the washer.

Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.

Sorry to confirm your suspisions but its leaking oil from the transmission and its exxxpensive to replace the transmission. And sad but true the good ole days of dependabilty of the maytag is gone espically since 5 years ago Maytag was bought by Whirlpool. a Whirlpool is a good machine but nothing was good as the old Maytag's
