My washer is a couple years old and a few weeks ago it started filling up then stopping and I have to turn the dial all the way around and to the same spot it starts again then finally spins then it refills stops I have to turn the dial all the way around it starts again and finally finishes. It then stopped and started acting right and doing the whole cycle but now... It's doing it again I literally have to watch every load. It's no longer under warranty it's a maytag if that matters. Anybody know what's wrong? Is it cheaper to buy a new washer or get a repair man out here?? Any ideas?

It sounds like a sensor of some kind is going bad.

I know nothing about washers but I really hate to pay someone to come out if it'll be cheaper in the long run to get a new washer.... :(

Shop around with different repair companies.  Find one that will come out, but won't charge you unless they fix something.  Ask them if they do it or a free estimate.

Kinda sounds like the timer is off.


Actually I have a front loader that one time would fill up and stop and it wouldn't spin because there was a filter that was.clogged up. Cost $50 to get it repaired.

Good idea. I'll see what I can find. Maybe I can get an idea of the problem just describing it over the phone to. Thanks.
