Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Maytag Bravos Model #MTW6600TQ0. What ever happened happened in the middle of the cycle. There is water underneath the drum I can hear it slosshing around. The drum does not spin. Everytime I try to restart it the machine just puts water in it like it always does when I start it up, and then I get the F message.

Ok Kathy, Can you give me a minute to look up that model number please.
Thanks Kathy,

If I were the service guy coming there to look at the washer I would have to run the diagnostic program, that would tell me where the problem is and the corrective actions.

This will need diagnosing and parts so if you are looking to fix this yourself you will need to run the diagnostic program. Below I have included a copy of the service tech sheet for this model, On it you will find the instructions for running the diagnostic program (service mode)

Is this diagnostic test something that the average person can do. I do not have access to a service technician. Do i need special tools.

No it involves hitting buttons on the control panel, if you download the tech sheet from the link in my previous post you will see if you are able to do it kathy, If not unfortunately you will need to call a repair guy :(
