Why does my washing machine start then stop?

Why does my washing machine start then stop?

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer may stop mid-cycle. If the washer door is not latched shut, the door switch prevents the washer from operating. If the door lock is defective, the washer may stop mid cycle.

How do you bypass a water level sensor?

Another way to trick the water level switch into raising the water level, is to make the clothes in the wash tub heavier by getting them wet. After loading your clothes to the wash tub, pour a jug of water over the clothes. The clothes will absorb the water and become heavier.

How full should you fill a front load washer?

Clothes should be distributed evenly and loosely inside the machine. Even a large load of laundry should not fill the washer tub more than three-quarters full. For a front-load washing machine, pile clothes up high, but don’t cram them past the last row of holes at the front (the row closest to the door).

Why is my Maytag washer not filling up with water?

If the water inlet valve is defective, the wash may fill slowly or not fill at all. If the water pressure is adequate, try cleaning the screens inside the water inlet valve hose connection ports. If the washer still fills slowly, replace the water inlet valve.
