Maytag Centennial MVWC350AW1
« on: February 22, 2014, 12:49:50 PM »

Our Maytag washer started acting up 3 weeks out of warranty.  It sounds like it might be the  timer board, but we would like to get the service manual if possible.

It gets to the spin cycle and stops and the lid unlocks.  The only way to get it going is to clear the memory and put it on spin.  If you put it on rinse/spin it gets into a mode of trying to sense the water level and wont budge beyond that.  then finally the spin cycle stopped working altogether.  It's intermittent also.  Most recently we couldn't start it at all. 

If a service manual isn't available, would it be a safe bet to just replace the timer board? 

Thank you!

this is to follow up on the solution to this problem in case anyone else is interested. we never found a manual. so we took a stab in the dark and ordered a control board based on the diagram on the maytag website. the instructions for calibrating the control board were helpful and this website has excellent videos to show how to install it: appliancevideo.com. we also ordered an actuator switch since its relatively cheap and sounds like it could wear. But the control board fixed the problem. now we have a spare actuator switch and hopefully we never have to buy another washing machine.
