I have this loaner Maytag A210 series (pretty old machine, not sure how old) that seemed to be working pretty well but then quit running if delicate cycle is selected.

Any ideas?

I have no tear-down or manual on this one so will need some assistance.

Thanks!

A series usually designates washing machines where DG or DE designates dryers. Assuming I am looking at the correct schematics I would say either the selector switch is defective, the low temp cycling thermostat has an open circuit or a wiring open circuit between the timer and the low temp cycling thermostat. My first choice would be to ohm out the low temp cycling thermostat for an open circuit.

Ahh, the goold ol' Dependable Care Maytag. These are venerable old machines. Their one fault is that they lasted too long. That's the real reason Maytag went broke and had to sell out to Whirlpool.

Could be a bad timer or a bad winding in the motor. Is there a wiring diagram pasted to the inside of the control panel? If so, take a nice, clear picture and post it here or upload it to a photo hosting service and post the link here so we can caress it with our steely eyeballs.

Sorry, yes, it's a washing machine. Dang, hate that when I leave out info.
"Maytag Fabric Matic".

I'm usually one to go at things with instructions - if there are none available on this model, I will got at it by removing the top screws at the console and see what happens. Stay tuned for pix.

Doh, I should have known you were talking about the washer with that model number but for some reason I was only thinking dryer with delicates cycle.  Oh well that is why Im still an appliance student.. heh... Im sure the Samurai will get you on the right track. :)

Looks like it's only a 1 speed Motor... must be a bad Timer.


would that be a Rowe AMI T1-2 Jukebox behind the Foos-ball table ?

Nice pics! :cool:

Forgot about the Fabrics switch on these. Common troublemaker. Easy enough to ohm it out... with the washer unplugged, of course. :goofball:

With Delicate selected, should have continuity from Fabric switch terminals

7 to 10 (gray to blue/black)
13 to 16 (white/red to yellow/black)

Will it run at all in Delicate cycle? If so, does it stop at a certain point in the cycle?

Thanks to both of you for the quick response. No, no jukebox here - but you have me entertained on whether it's my air compressor, my ladder, or what.


I will ohm it tomorrow, as it's getting late and a bit cold out there. I started to test it tonight, and even with wires on I've got no continuity on one of the pairs. But I'll pull the rest of the wires, pull the switch, and bring it inside where I can play with it - maybe spray some contact cleaner in there, just to see if I've got an intermittent contact issue.

Stay tuned for another episode of "as the laundry basket turns"....

Well lads, I think you got me in the right direction. But me thinks there's actually nothing wrong with the unit. More of a bad case of what my little girl would call "dorkification".

The switch tests out fine. I started backtracing the schematic to see what all had influence, which made me look at the timer chart (not sure whether the black fills are contact/closed or open) but regardless, I happened to notice the 6 min soak verbiage under delicate. So I went back in to ask my wife for more details leading up to her "Honey! The loaner washer quit working now too!"

She told me exactly what I had presumed: the unit had filled with water and was just sitting there. I told her it's supposed to, for 6 min. "well, my washing machine doesn't do that", but rather than tell her what she already knows ("but this isn't your washing machine") and risk getting thrown to the dog house (see http://bewareofthedoghouse.com/videoPage.aspx) I chose to just come back and "fix" the unit; i.e. put it back together, ensuring it actually does work, and returned it to its rightful owner.

But if nothing else, it's a cause for beer-celebration - grab a cold one and accept my tokens of apprecation, once again.
