Customer Question
Nicholas - Maytag Centennial...

Nicholas - Maytag Centennial Washer has stopped responding properly to commands. It will sometimes finish a cycle in 2-3 hours; other times just won't run at all.

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Machine is 4 years old. gets "stuck" at different points in the cycle. Has always been an issue at rinse and spin time, now hits at random points in the cycle.

With the washer model number I can look up model specific info and see if there are any recalls or product updates wig your model washer.

I have worked on this washer many many times before. And just to let you know, if you are experiencing intermittent problems with the washer stopping in many different parts of the cycle it is usually the control timer at fault.

Appliance Technician: Jon, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

I can walk you through the diagnostic steps needed to properly find out if the timer is at fault or another part. Then I can give you a link to parts and give you the steps to make the repair yourself. If it can be repaired.
