Question and Answers

Q:

Maytag washer, the timer exterior knob, how to remove it? Is there a pin or something. It does not just pull off.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You will need to access the back of the timer in order to pull the center pin inside the shaft out about 3/16 of an inch and then the timer knob can be pulled off.

To release the console from the top: Push a thin putty knife between the bottom of the end cap and the top of the washer. Push inwards and pry the console corner up. Repeat steps for other side. NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before servicing.

I added images below with the procedures that should apply to your model.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

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

A:

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.

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.

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.
