Customer Question

My laundry is now not draining after the spin cycle. Have tried just clean wash and drain & spin cycle but the clothes are still soaking wet when done. Have cleaned out drainage tube and there was nothing blocking the tube. Not sure what else to do. This washer is only 4 years old? Model # ***** Maytag Centennieal commercial technology top load.
Can you suggest anything else to check before I have to hire appliance repair service?

unplug the unit for a few minutes plug it back in and run a calibration test on the washer, click the link below for instructions, if that does not reset it, then the drain pump has failed and will have to be replaced:

If you end up having to replace the water pump and would like the part number and repair instructions let me know.
