Maytag Washer Continues to Agitate
« on: January 05, 2012, 01:44:00 PM »
Hi,
I have a Maytag MTW5630TQ1 washer that continues to agitate when I use the normal cycle at 18 min.  If I change it to a lower time it works fine.  Thoughts?

Thanks!
Mike

If your timer doesn't advance then your timer is going bad.

No very easy.  I'll see if I can find a video for you.

Your model washer uses Timer Part # AP3967873

If you click on the part number I posted above or the image of your timer below you will find a video on the parts page that you may find helpful.

Hope you find our website helpful.
