Spin light keeps blinking and I am unable to start wash cycle

When I first started washer I inadvertently raised the lid and consequently, washer didn't start up right away and when it did, I believe it went directly to rinse cycle and then the spin, however, it kept spinning and spinning over and over again. I then pressed start/pause/unlock lid and spin stopped, but as I said, the light keeps lighting. What do I do....

Why won't my Maytag Brazos top loader washer, model mvwx600xw1 agitate or spin? Also, the lid lock light blinks once in awhile. Checked lid lock, still no spinning


my first suspicion is in the door lock switch if it goes bad u have no action in wash or spin, next I would first check the water pressure switch as it is the unit that sends the signal to the machine to start wash cycle? if the diaphram does not detect the proper level of pressure due to water level. it will just keep filling and overflow and never start wash cycle. als0 check the water inlet valve, lastly a bad clutch will not allow much in the way of a spin cycle but would not effect the wash cycle? a bad motor coupler on the other hand stops both wash and spin?

Amana washer lid lock wont quit blinking


Your washer lid lock button is locked and lid was not put down before it locked, which is why the light is flashing. Therefore, push the "START" button until you see the lid lock button is off (Approx 3 seconds). Once it is off, then you can put the lid down and push the start button again, which will lock the lid into place. The washer will NOT drain or wash or spin unless the lid itself is in the locked position. If you were able to get the lid down and locked and it still doesn't work, then you need a technician to replace a wiring harness. However, you mentioned that the lid lock button was flashing, therefore, it stands to reason that your lid is NOT locked down.

Why does my washer stop in cycle


Raise and lower your lid six times to reset timers.

Will not spin, therefore will not drain


Hey Joe,
Let’s check to see if the wash basket will rotate CCW in Spin Only Cycle with no clothes in the wash basket
1. Open the lid and rotate the wash basket by hand Counter Clockwise, CCW. The wash basket should rotate freely with no restriction. The wash basket will not rotate Clockwise, CW by hand.

2. Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. Raise the top of the machine to observe the wash basket and tumbler action described in step 3. (See page 33 of the Service Manual for putty knife insertion point).

3. With the top raised start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket, observe the wash basket it should begin to rotate CCW does it?. Watch the tumblers, they should not rotate in spin cycle (maybe ½ turn at the start of spin cycle and that’s all). If the tumblers rotate while the wash basket is rotating you have a clutch malfunction. If the basket does spin CCW and the tumblers are rotating then you have a broken clutch spring. Let do those checks and observations and see what the next troubleshooting steps will be. Rich
