Could be a bearing, if a seal wore out, it should be putting grease spots on your clothes though. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/maytag-washer-lat3600aae-repair/lat3600aae-noisy.html

Shawnie, sounds like your lid switch is giving you problems. They revised the switch, it comes in a kit with instructions. Part number 12001908. Take a small screw driver with the lid closed and push in on the actuator to verify that this is the problem. Catriver..post back.

This symptom of the unit filing and then not washing can be caused by few things.

1. The water level pressure switch not making contact to the motor control circuit but shutting off the water valve. There should be 120 VAC on the yellow wire of the water level control pressure switch when the fill level has reached the correct level.

2. An internal timer contact problem for the motor control circuit. Power for the timer motor should also be present on terminal 14 of the timer.

3. A defective motor speed switch. There should also be power on the yellow wire going to the motor.

All of the above power is sourced via the lid switch.
Black wire is power in. You know you have power in... as it fills.



This is going to take a meter to isolate the problem. Changing parts can get expensive but treouble shooting with a meter will result in determining where the failure has occurred.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Changing the belt should help.

If this does not work on any cycle then make sure you have electricity at your outlet as there is no fuse for this unit.
If you have power but it will not work in any cycle then you most likely need a new timer.
If the unit will fill and wash but not spin or drain then you most likely need a lid switch.

Hello, when the clothes are partly wet when cycle is complete then check these.
1. Motor coupler
2. Spin cycle

MOTOR COUPLER; To test the motor coupler, restart the washer in it's spin cycle,let the machine runs for a minutes and then open the lid and notice if the tub is spinning: if it's spinning when you lift the lid that means the coupler is fine and if it doesn't spin that means you have to replace it.
SPIN CYCLE: If the washer doesn't reach it's proper spin speed,the cloth may be wet at the end of the cycle,check to be if the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again,if the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt which you have to replace.

The usual charge when i have repaired that is around $375
in addation to the seal a tub bearing would be required since the seal has leaked it very likely has rusted the bearing. To replace those both the inner and outer tub have to come apart,the breakdown would be
Service Fee $75
Labor $100

labor and service fees vary from company to company and that is probably low,yet it is a great washer and may be well worth investing in to repair

Use a putty knife at the top front corners to release the spring catches. Lift up the top. Examine the plastic thing that delivers the water to the tub, it may be cracked or out of place.
