Q:

How to find the problem MTW5600TQ1 Maytag Residential washer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is problems with the washer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Maytag Washer model number  MTW5600TQ1

The first thing to do is check the lid switch.   Run something like an Ohm meter to your switch and see if it is good.   If not then needs to be replaced.

Second thing to look at will be the pump.   The pump if clogged or bad will not let the machine work either.

Thirdly the last thing to check will be the timer.   

The lid switch is most likely the problem.   Make sure the door is closed with a good connection.

Q:

My Maytag topload washer will not drain or spin. Makes a humming noise. It will agitate sometimes but sometimes just hums.

A:

When the Maytag washer just won't drain and spin, it's time for support from the experts on managemylife.com. The link below covers a similar question on washers which may help you understand what may be going on with yours. While an expert responds with additional information, I hope this helps. If you decide on service, that link is also available.

If the motor is not humming in the spin mode, then you could have a wiring failure, a bad timer or a problem with the drive motor. You could also have a problem with the transmission or the drive system. I recommend that you have a service technician examine the washer and fix this problem. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

If you want to try and repair this problem yourself, reply to this thread with additional details (whether motor hums in the spin mode) and we will assist you further.

Yes, the motor hums in spin mode. Additionally, sometimes it agitates in agitate mode and sometimes it will not agitate but it will hum. It never spins. Sometimes it agitates. It always hums. Any additional help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!

Hello Ken. Thanks for posting that additional information. The first step in resolving this problem is to troubleshoot the draining issue. Your initial details indicated that the washer is not draining. Since your current details indicate that the motor is running in the spin mode but the washer is not draining, I recommend that you remove that drain pump and check that component. You can evacuate the water from the tub of the washer manually by bailing it out and then using a wet/dry shop vacuum to remove as much water as possible. Next, you will need to UNPLUG the washer and access the drain pump. I provided a video below that shows how to remove the cabinet on the washer to access the drain pump. The video will probably begin with an advertisement or commercial that you can skip. The video shows several different types of consoles. Your Maytag washer has a console like the one shown in the second image below. You can release your console as shown in that image (with the washer UNPLUGGED). The first image shows how to remove that drain pump. Keep in mind that some water will probably flow out of that pump when you remove the hoses. Check that pump for a clog or restriction. You may find a small sock or other item in that pump. It may need to be replaced. You can order parts from this page: Maytag Washer Model MTW5600TQ1 Parts . Once you resolve the draining issue with that washer, it may spin properly. We can work on the spin and agitation issues once the drain problem is fixed. Reply with additional details as needed. Thanks.

I very clearly said in both of my posts that the washer does not spin. It is not a pump issue. It is most likely either a clutch, transmission or brake issue. Or probably a combination of one or more of those. This was a very frustrating experience trying to use this service. I tried to find somewhere to rate this website so others would not fall into the trap I did and waste about a week of time trying to get repair advice. This is a ploy by Sear repair service to make the problem so difficult and sound so confusing that you click on their repair link. Be honest Sears. Users beware.

Hello Ken. I am sorry to hear that you are disappointed with our website and our service. We do not intend to lead you in the wrong direction regarding repair advice. If you are confident that you check the transmission, basket drive and drive block components, I added a procedure in the image below that shows how to access those parts in the washer. That may help you determine the cause of your problem. We provide the link to Sears Service for those members who get to the point where they need to have a service technician complete the repair. If you continue to attempt the repair yourself and you need more help, let us know.
