Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

So when you unplug this and plug it back in it continues the cycle all the way to the end ? doesn't stop after that ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Well forgot some info, this what I usually end up doing... Start the washer on a cycle, washer fills with water then it will stop before it starts to agitate and wash the clothes. What I do next is set the washer to drain portion of the cycle, wait for the water to completly drain. Then I unplug the unit, plug it back in start an new wash cycle and then the washer will finish the whole wash/rinse/spin cycle all the way threw. I have only performed this about four times. Each time I have done the same thing and the washer will finish the whole wash/rinse/spin cycle completly on the second try.

this sounds like it has a drain issue. when these start they are supposed to go into a short drain cycle before adding water and continuing. can you check the drain system in this ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Sure I think I can, do you mean the drain hose or the possibly the drain insite the washer's drum not sure wich one you mean?

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
there is a drain pump underneath , check the hoses going to it also. this is the pump. Drain Pump 34001098 Main Product View heres a link to all the diagrams. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MAH2400AWW/3048/0153200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=MAH2400AWW on this model it looks like you go in through the back.

I'm checking will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
okay
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

All drains look good no blockage found any where in any of the hoses.


May I add the only reason I would move the washer to the drain portion of the cycle was to try and start fresh on a new cycle completely. I hope this helps

Expert:  Bryan replied 1 year ago.
Okay, the only thing I can think of is the control board is failing. the door is locking correct ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Yes I always firms close the door.....
