My Maytag Bravos HCT Upright washer MVWB750WQ0 has uL come up with 8 or 9 minutes left on any load, or even when there is nothing in the washer. It will even give this code just with a rinse and spin or drain and spin cycle. I have cleaned the washer thoroughly, and I have already tightened the hex bolt on the bottom of the washer. One thing that is interesting as well, is the wash basin tub is impossible to take out. It seems like it might be stuck inside the plastic holding tank and the bearings. I am not sure what else to try at this point.

 

The wash cycle is fine, it still drains fine, but the spin is what sets it off. I can't figure it out! I might need to get the basket out first, but I can't figure out why it is stuck either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

This machine has a floating basket. You should be able to grab the inside of the inner drum and lift up. The basket should lift up 2-4 inches (just an estimate) and then drop down freely. If the tub will not slide up and down as decrived above then the tub is stuck.

You will need to replace the shaft and bearing kit.

You can use jays cabrio tool to remove the inner basket.

If the basket can move freely, then replace strut kit.

Also make sure the rotor bolt on bottom of machine is tight, How old is unit, any noise from berings, suspension rods could be bad

I have taken apart the unit and shaft and bearing kit showed some rust, but the groves and everything appear to funstion fine. Now when I run a diagnostic, it gives me error F44, which is says the heater will not turn on. However, there isn't a heater when I look at the machine with the back cover off.

 

As for the other things:

The basket lifts up a couple inches, but doesn't come out from what I can tell. It does go up and down, I just can't remove it from the machine.

Do you have a video for the strut kit? That could potentially be the problem.

Rotor bolt seems to be tight, it was a little loose when I started trying to figure things out, but that was one of the first things I tried.

Not really much noise, it seems to run fine until the spin speeds up, then it just stops and puts up the uL, but the machined is balanced.

Did you put lock tight on the rotor bolt when you tightened it? If not it may have came loose again.

Change your suspension rods. If you forcefully push down on the tub, if it bounces much at all, your suspension rods are bad

It defintely bounces when you push down on the tub. Thanks! I'll try that next.

Is there a video for how to do that properly?

Also, is there a link for the proper parts for this machine?

Once you have the rods in your hands, it's rather self explanatory as to installation. I always change the rear ones first and front ones last.

Make sure to install all the parts that come in the box and don't grease the plastic cups.
