I have had a VERY dependable Maytag top loader since around 96 or 97. Suddenly last night, it died, mid-cycle. I played with the cycles and learned it will spin and empty the water, but will not fill, or start. I have a meter, and as best I can tell, the lid switch and the flow valve both test OK (meter jumps when lid opens, resistance across the valve contacts is not zero). Turned the belts in both directions & nothing seems locked up. When I turn the washer on to the normal start point, I think I can hear a slight hum from somewhere, butr nothing is happening
Since I just had to replace the water heater last week (dang!), I have decided to be the Maytag repairman.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
