Hi there,

Your issue is indeed the wax motor and the machine control board. What happens during the cycle is when the unit gets ready to spin and drain a switch in your door lock assembly has to be closed. this switch is closed by way of the wax motor engaging your door lock and the spin switch at the same time. Maytag has had this wax motor fail and in the process take out a resistor (r11) on the machine control board. You need a new wax motor and machine control board. Instuctions for replacement come with the parts. Good luck but expect to spend a good 2 or 300 bucks.
