My new Maytag washer MVWC5ESWW1 was just put in service a little over a week ago, on 10/5/10.  It stops at different points in the cycle.  A few times it has stopped after filling the tub for the wash and has been sitting with the dial still at the start of the cycle with a tub of water after several hours.  Now it has stopped short of the spin cycle with rinse water in the tub.  It ran a spin cycle after I set the dial manually to spin.

  When it failed to run the cycle the first time, I checked the cold water inlet screen and cleaned that out.  It ran a few loads without problem, then started this thing of getting to the rinse and shutting down.  I'm wondering if there's something defective. 

  This is my first experience with the automated water level type machine, and I found that if I open the lid to see if it's filling, it hangs up and won't go past the initial fill of the wash cycle.

Sumpin ain't raht. Don't work on this yourself because it's too new and you might void your warranty. Call for warranty service.

you do HAVE to have the lid shut the entire time its running. its one of those put the laundry in. soap it up. and shut the lid and turn it on and forget its running :)

it does have several pauses in the cycle. it is possible your load sensor or timer is failing. feel free to give A&E a call. we are maytag's primary provider of warranty service.

Thanks, y'all. Yes, I read in the manual that it has pauses, but a pause of 18 hours is a little long, I think. I'll call it in.
