Hi Dave, I have a Maytag MAH4000AWW. My washer wont ramp up during the final spin phase. I recently replaced the drum bearings. That's when the spin issue started. Since then I have checked the circuit board for the burnt resistor, the diode. I've also verified the switches are working. As of right now, I have the inertia switch jumpered, the drum switch on the side jumpered. I know the wax motor is fine. This washer has been with me for 20 years. I'm ready to let go, but thought I would try one more time for ideas...

I just added three pair of jeans to washer, set it to spin and I think it ramped up. I going to wash them and see what happens with water weight in there...
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Ok... cycle complete. The washer did ramp up during spin cycle, but only held the higher rpm for maybe 10-12 seconds, then slowed back down and tried again. After the cycle was complete, the jeans were very wet feeling. Ideas?

ho​nestly from the sounds of it your problem sounds like an issue with the door switch assembly needing to be replaced. Have you inspected this part?

I've checked the wax motor, and both switches. They work fine.

so​ then all that leaves is the drive motor itself being the problem and needing to be replaced. Its not putting out the power that it needs to. Since the board has no signs of wear and tare that leaves the drive motor itself. This is not going to be a cheap fix.

I replaced that motor probably 19 years ago... You're right it's not cheap either! Thanks for your ideas.... Think I will retire this unit after 20 years. ��

I ​personally would advise the same. Stay away form the front loaders and the Samsung and LG brands they are just no good. Look pretty but no good.
