Hello,

I am having a problem with my Maytag sav4655eww Top Load Washer. When I do a wash, the machine fills, agitates, but never drains. When the cycle is over, the machine is full of soapy water. In order to empty the water out of the machine, I have to put the machine on spin cycle. The water empties without a problem. The same thing happens on every cycle
( Regular, Wrinkle Free, Delacates, Hand Wash), I took the pump off to see if the impeller was broken. The pump looks fine.
I am thinking motor issue or transmission issue. But I dont know enough about the washer to make a determination.
Does the motor need to reverse in order to drain? Maybe its not doing that? What should I be looking for?

Thank You for your time.

This doesn't make sense-- the timer will advance thru this same cycle at least twice during the normal course of operation. Is the timer advancing properly thru the cycle? Do you hear the motor running when the timer advances to the drain/spin cycle? Does the timer advance to the drain/spin cycle on its own?

I sat there and watched the entire "Regular Cycle" and found that the timer advances through the cycle on its own but when it gets to the rinse or the extended spin portion of the cycle, it continues to agitate and then turns off when it gets to the end. I watched the entire "Gentle Knit Cycle" also. When it gets to the portion of the cycle where it is supposed to drain, the motor makes a loud noise and the thermo cut out trips. The motor is hot to the touch. Now I am thinking perhaps the timer is malfunctioning. What do you think?

Thanks Again for your time

I'm thinking there's something jamming the pump. Get inside the box and remove the hoses from the pump so you can get some deep eyeball and finger action on the impeller.

My original thought was a bad pump. I took the pump off of the motor and was able to turn the pump easily by hand and looked inside the pump with a flashlight. Nothing stuck inside. Impeller looks good. I did not see any damage.

.. when it gets to the rinse or the extended spin portion of the cycle, it continues to agitate

... bad Maytag Transmission ?
Does the Motor turn in the opposite direction during "Spin" ?

The Machine does Spin because that is how I drain the water out. I turn the dial to the spin cycle and the tub spins and drains the water.

Sounds like a timer issue

I tend to agree with GMF. I am going to get a timer and hope for the best.
Thank you all for helping me out.
