I have a Maytag Bravo Mode#MTW6700TQ1- Ser# XXXXX and whenever i run in wash cycle it fills drains and comes up with "oL" on the screen. I have redistributed the load, taken clothes out and only have 2 pairs of jeans in it and it still happens. Any help would be appreciated.

Does it do it if there is nothing in the washer also?

Can you spin the inner tub very easily?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.




Does the tub spin while it is filling with water?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes, i can run it in the "Spin Only" mode and it will run

Chris then does it agitate once it fills with water?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no, it stops and drains


This is the unit not sensing water coming into it, either the unit has a clog in the tube going to the tub from the microcomputer or the micro computer itself is bad, you will need to open the console and remove teh hose from the computer and blow to see if the air is going all the into the tub itself with out restriction. If there are no restrictions then replace the microcomputer, you can click on the link below to order a new computer if necessary.

I installed the new $270.00 part and it still did NOT fix the problem. I blew in the little tube that come up from the drum and it was clear. What NOw

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Relist: Inaccurate answer.
I replaced the part that he indicated to replace and i have the exact same problem.
You still get water to come in, and then it just drains back out?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

It runs what i call the Weighing cycle, a little water and tub spinning.

Then it stops, starts filling with water and about 4 minutes in the Wash cycle pops up oL and drains.

How high is the drain on the back of the machine, you don't have the hose stuffed all the way down it do you?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No it hadn't changed from the original installation. ( All the way you mean kinked or stuffed under the machine?) No not that i think, like i say, it hadn't changed from installation. It does drain correctly when asked to.

The control module measure to see if the water level is correct, if you take the hose off the module and blow through it to the tub, do you feel any resitance?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

no resistance at all

Lets put it in diagnostic mode

1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in
with all indicators off; or with only the Clean
indicator on).
2. Select any one button (except POWER, START and
PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps below, using
the same button:
a. Press/hold 3 seconds.
b. Release for 3 seconds.
c. Press/hold 3 seconds.
d. Release for 3 seconds.
e. Press/hold 3 seconds.
➔ If this test mode has been entered successfully,
all indicators on the console are illuminated for
5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated
Time Remaining two-digit display.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Excellent...good reset.

What shoudl then happen?

It should have gone through all the steps, and then beeped at the end of it, did it do that?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I am not at home to try it, sorry. I will check it tonight when i get there.

After resetting i should try to run?

Hopefully i won't bother you any more. Thank you. I will try it

Try running it when you get home
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

After it comes up 88 on the console what should i do?

it should start running the test cycle after a few minutes if there are no error codes logged..
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

After the test cycle completes? Should it be able to go to back to a normal run?

If it runs through the complete test and beeped at the end, then yes try the machine..
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

sweet, thank you

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Ok...didn't work out as planned

I did get it to reset and it started the diagnostics.

C0 no problems

C1- Filled the drum almost full of water and stopped. oL came up on the screen

Tried it twice.

Any clue?

Let me pull o fthe diagnostic sheet again, give me a minute
Chris, on the inner tub, can you lift it up and down a couple of inches? It appears to be stuck in the down position.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I didn't check it like that but have bounced it previousely, before i replaced the module.

Yes but i am talking only about the inner tub not the whole thing.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I will check it when i get home, what do i do if it is? or is not down?

What happens when the water goes in the inner tub is suppose to start floating up and disengage so it can agitate. you may have to remove the inner tub and see what is hanging up on down there..
Customer: replied 4 years ago. you work on Saturday? it might be tomorrow before i get to it.

Yes I am here every Saturday in the morning..

Hi Chas,

here is what i did Sunday, Parts lIst # in Parathesis from page 5.

I took the top off the washer off, removed (4), (1), (2), (6), (8), (7) and (9).

Looking at the bottom of the basket, i believe this is where it should be moving, that (9) shoudl be sliding up and down on (22)? it was stuck and after much effort i was able to get it to move a little, but decided that since i was this far into it i might as well remove the Basket completely. I could not get it to raise more than an 1-1/2" i put it back together. Have run a couple of loads, and seems to be running ok, but i don't believe i found the problem. Any thoughts?

Most likely it is sticking on the shaft, common problem, however a bear to get off, the tub is suppose to rise about 1 1/2" when it fills with water to disengage the tub so it can agitate, you may have broken it free enough at the present time to work but is is most likely going to start doing it again, you can pray liquid wrench on th espline and let it set overnight and see if it breaks free for you...
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Do you think i shoudl replace it?

If the problem comes back I would replace the center hub.
