Washer does not spin fast
« on: May 20, 2016, 11:40:09 AM »

i have a Maytag MAH8700AWW washer that works great until it needs to go into full spin mode.  It spins but only at 180rpm.  I got this number from the spin test in diagnostic mode.  Is there something that can be done to get this washer to spin at higher speeds.  I have replaced the main control board and the door lock already.  The door locks and the pump is getting all water pumped out without issue.

Disconnect off balance switch harness at top and jump out connections, try running it through spin test again like this.

I have no idea where the off balance switch is at.  I have looked at teh parts diagram at least 5X and still cannot locate it.
