I have a maytag washing machine that the cycle doesn't finish it leavess the water in the maching and stops. It goes all the way to off but the machine is full of water and some soap.

S.E.Thomas :

hello, welcome to just answer. my name is XXXXX XXXXX and i will be happy to assist you with your problem. If you put the washer into spin does it then spin all the water out?

Customer :

yes

S.E.Thomas :

it sounds to me like the timer is not switching to the spin cycle on its own.

S.E.Thomas :

this was a common problem on these models

Customer :

how sure are you?

S.E.Thomas :

the contacts are sticking. when you stop the washer manually and put it on spin it will then open the contacts and spin.

S.E.Thomas :

it is simple to check. if you run the cycle and when the washer reaches the spin cycle it should switch from wash to spin
