Maytag bravos MVWX500XW1. I have replaced control board and shift actuator. Tested on quick wash and works fine. Also filled with water, drain and spin works fine. No error codes. Belt and motor check out fine. Customer says the cycle is still not spinning water out of clothes.

Welcome!  Will it go through either the manual or automatic diagnostic modes?

We're there any error codes before board and shifter were changed?

So, is the complaint that it's not completing the cycle or is it that the clothes are still too wet/not spun out all the way when the customer removes them?

 

If you can get the machine to successfully go through all the spin tests in the manual diagnostic mode then you may have a "use and care" issue with the customer.  Unbalanced load, overloaded,  too much detergent, incorrect cycle, etc.

 

Find out what they are washing when this happens and what cycle they are using.  Have them load the machine for you and see what they are doing.
