HI

 

I have a Maytag MVWC6EsWW1 that just stopped allowing water to come in.

 

Replace Washer Sensor Switch W10248240.

 

Check continuity on water input valve seleniods.

 

Screens on valve clean.

 

Suspect it may be the timer.

 

Is there anyway to check timer or is there anything else to check.

 

Thanks for any help.

  Does the washer spin if placed directly into spin mode?

Yep, spins, agitates.

 

Only when I put timer to allow water in, nothing happens.

  The only place it should "dry agitate" is the last 2 minutes of wash in the heavy duty cycle. Does it agitate with no water in normal cycle?

I would have to put it back together to answer definitely.

 

But when I was putting it thru the cycles, I would hear it agitate.

 

I can't say for sure if it would agitate during the wash cycle.

 

Would that be helpful if I put it back together to verify.

 

I believe the answer is yes, but that was not one of the test that I did.

  So, you haven't checked to see if it will spin since the no fill problem occured? What do you have apart, control panel and/or cabinet removed?

Sorry, I mistook your question.

 

Yes it spins and agitates when I put it thru the cycles - wash, rinse.

 

I have the top panel off where the timer and Washer Sensor Switch is.

 

I took off the clamps to allow the back panel to come off far enough to test the

seleniods on the input valve.

Unplug pressure hose from sensor switch. Will it fill now? If no, does it still agitate dry? If yes, unplug 3 conductor plug from sensor switch, does it still agitate dry?

When you say "pressure hose from sensor switch", do you mean the transparent vacuum around 1/4 diameter?

 

I have to put it back in order to connect water line. Probably 15 min.

 

Will respond to your questions then.

Okay , I'm back.

 

 

Unplug pressure hose from sensor switch. Will it fill now? NO

 

If no, does it still agitate dry? YES

 

If yes, unplug 3 conductor plug from sensor switch, does it still agitate dry? YES

  Bad timer. It should never agitate dry other than the last 2 minutes of heavy duty wash cycle. BTW, blow through that hose while it's disconnected to make sure there are no obstructions.

One of the 1st things I did.

 

I thank you for your time (and especially your sharing of your knowledge).

 

I can order the timer on-line for ~$63.00.

 

Hopefully, this will resolve the problem.

 

Again, thanks.

Did you replace the timer with a new one or a "rebuilt" one?    Or have you even replaced it yet?...

 

I can order the timer on-line for ~$63.00.

 

 

 
At that price, it will be a rebuilt timer.  You pays your money, you takes your chances.  Rots o' ruck, GI!

  I think what he meant by "one of the 1st things I did" was that he blew through the pressure hose to make sure it was clear, not replace timer.
