Can I please have the Full model number of the unit to better assist you ?

The model number is ***** the lid at the rear of the opening on top loaders .If you open the washer lid ,
the model /serial tag is at the rear of the opening on the washer itself.

have you tried removing some of the items from the washer to see if it will then spin ?

This washer is smart enough to know if the load is going to be out of balance in the high spped spin mode.

Will not spend $24. It knows it was out of balance, but now will not spin load that is in balance. It tries, spins slow, then hesitate, tries again,m then noise then stops, waits, tries again. Balance control is out of balance or weights it uses to balance load not working (Maybe got too much to one side? trying to balance?)

I am trying a rinse and spin cyhcle with maching empty - see if it will spin empty?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I also read something about unplug one minute, then close lid six times in 12 seconds - tried that before empty load try.

I am not stupid, but not good with hands trying to fix things - I am 77 years old - not mechanical
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

If your referring to a phone call prompt or POP UPS ,I did NOT send that to you ,the website that WE are using does, NOT I!

the closing the lid six times is for a GE manufactured washer not a maytag .

And if you want to reboot the electronic control board the unit has to be unplugged for more than 5 minutes .

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
After unplugging for more than five minutes, is there anything else I need to do? Of course I can try that
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

then turn it on and try to run a load , but that will not correct the load being out of balance .

It would only kill the electronic control board memory .

When you say the unit is out of balance is it banging against the sides of the washers cabinet?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
First out-of-balance load banged against sides for very short period. Other tries (load in blaance) do slow spin, but make noise (grind not bang) then spin slow and stop as it tries to go faster. We have waranty so if I can solve problem without service call, it saves your company money. We have regular and extended waranty.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I ran a load of crate pads for my dog kennels this morning, It spun enough to get items very damp, but not dry enough for dryer. They were not dripping wet, so some spin did help. I live in Arizona wo wqith dew point at 29 and sun hot, wet cloths do dry outside in two hours or so. If properly spun dry, they wouild dry outside in thirty minutes.

ok in your next to last post you stated ((We have waranty so if I can solve problem without service call, it saves your company money. We have regular and extended waranty.))

I seems that you do not realize that the website has nothing to do with your washers manufacturers or extended warranties .

This is only a questions and answer website of over 200 categories and your just on the appliance repair category
