Maytag washer won't drain/spin


Maytag washer, model LAT2300AAE... spin cycle has been degrading (didn't stop working altogether until last night). Got it to spin by moving the dial one click past the start of the spin cycle, worked for a day, now won't spin at all using regular cycle. Started using perm press cycle, after a while the same symptom, now won't drain/spin on any cycle (regular, perm press, delicate). Also, just last night it seems the cold water valve didn't open. Are all these symptoms indicative of the timer module? It's not the lid switch as the washer does agitate.

Sounds like the timer. Timer contacts will close for the water temp switch and cold water solenoid. Hot water solenoid is controlled by the water temp switch. I first would check if the motor is drawing current or receiving voltage while on the spin cycle. The tub does run on a transmission which can sometimes cause problems with the spin cycle.

no drain/spin timer. No cold water a different issue, probably water valve

Thanks for the info. If I can find a timer for < $75 I think it's worth a try.

The motor doesn't initiate on spin, works normally during wash cycles.

What do you mean doesn't initiate? Is there voltage at the motor terminals? If there's no voltage at the motor (during the cycle) and the wiring is all good the timer will need replacement. The timer contacts control the motor.
