    Hey, does it fill when you select cold water only? Have you changed the water valve lately? With the new symptom you're giving us it could be a couple of things.

    Dice I was hoping you would get it on your own, but I guess not. So I will have to give you a hand. Multiple choice of course, so you may still retain your manly ego.

    1 Operator error
    2 The goat is f##king with you.
    3 One to many trips behind the shed, or maybe one to few.
    4 Intermittent door or balance switch.

    Put an insulated jumper across the final spin terminals. If this doesn't work try a new "wig-wag". Let us know how this turns out.

If you all would just follow your own advise and just LISTEN to what was said, "My washer doesn't spin out in the rinse, the extra rinse that you have to set". Now if it didn't work and other time I might agree, but most likely not. 95 times out of 100 it will NOT be the timer, it would be a switch or something else.



    Could still be the timer. I've replaced lot of bad Maytag timers over the years that just5 forget part of the cycle. Just because the timer motor runs does not mean that the little switch contacts inside are not worn to the point of not making contact when required.

    didn't read all the answers so this is probably a repeat, but it sounds like the selector switch.

    I believe he was joking

    MOST people think you are just making up a name when you say you need a wig wag, like a whachamcallit or thingamabob.

    You have to admit. Wig-wag was a cool part name. I only know about it because my one and only appliance repair (on my own washer) was replacing this part. A set of solenoids. Great idea.
