My Laundry Question

My front loader washing machine stops at the same spot in every wash cycle. It won't go through the whole wash. How do I fix it myself?

Share a Little Background Info

Maytag epicZ front loader washing machine. It goes through the first twelve minutes of the wash and then the light flashes, it drains and turns off! I have to put it through another wash then a rinse and spin for them to come out drained. Help!_!!!!!

Lessons Learned

  • I put it through a spin cycle with no clothes.
  • I've unplugged it for an hour then plugged it back in.

Mary Marlowe Leverette, About.com Laundry & Laundry Rooms, says:

I'm going to guess that the washer is not showing an error code or you would have shared that. If it is showing a code, here is some help from Maytag. You can download a free manual here.

If there is no code, it may be that your washer is taking too long to drain and that stops the cycle. Check all of your hoses and the filter to see if something is blocking the water flow.

Good luck!
