Washer Repair / Maytag motor smoking up the basement
« Last post by close77 on July 22, 2014, 12:04:46 AM »
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could lend some solid advice. I have a Maytag washer that is about 8 years old. I think I paid about $400 for it at the time. Yesterday while doing a small load of wash it filled with water but it never went into the spin cycle and it wouldn't drain. Also there was a very strong smoke smell lingering in the air when I went to check on the load. I manually drained the washer, popped off the front panel and removed the belt. When I plugged the washer back in and tried the spin cycle the motor just hummed for a few seconds and then started smoking. I'm guessing the motor is shot. Could it possibly be anything else?

I didn't spend much time looking for a new motor but the initial prices I came across were quite expensive (around $200). That's too expensive given the age and price of the washer. Is this even worth pursuing? Perhaps a used motor off Ebay or something? Thanks in advance!

<<<Unit gets to the rinse cycle and just turns off because it will not drain water from the tub.>>>

**********

Turns off completely (all control panel lights off)?

Or displays an error "OE" and stops the cycle (control panel still illuminated)?

**********

<<<Also I don't know if this means anything but when i enter into the QC mode, if i don't hit the play button at all it displays these codes " InC2, IU05, ID01">>>

Mine does this. And every model I've seen with this setup. Including my sister in laws. I don't think there is anything you can do. Unless anyone else has any bright ideas.  I'm open to suggestions as well.

The small adjustment screw next to the button, try turning it down slightly. You could ( with help) hold the button down and adjust it lower until it no longer blows out. That has no air adjustment so that's the best I can say.

Unit gets to the rinse cycle and just turns off because it will not drain water from the tub. Unhooked all the drain tubes and checked for blockages and there are none, it doesn't even sound like it is trying to come on. I unhooked both the drain pump and the circulation pump and cleaned out what little gunk was in there and it did the same thing,

Pulled out the multi meter and the drain pump is testing at 14.5 so it is within spec but even when i run it in the QC mode and go to test the drain pump it makes no noise, same when i try to test the circulation pump, nothing.

Could this still be just the drain pump going bad? Are there any other tests I can run on it, or anything else I should be looking for?

Have a look at the attachment?
Have you checked to see if you are getting power to the fill valve after forcing a harvest?
The attached PDF should help you

it's possible, but if your dealing with a leak the best way to be sure is to pull it out and watch for it... it's a pain, but better than getting an unexpected kitchen splash pool....
