How do you reset the sensor on a Maytag washer?
- Remove the washer’s plug for one minute.
- Reconnect the power, then lift and close the lid six times in a 12-second interval.
- Keep in mind that for the procedure to function, the lid must close properly six times in a row.
- Run a test load afterward to confirm that the washer has reset.
How long does sensing take on a Maytag washer?
These sensing spins may take 2 to 3 minutes before water is added to the load. The washer will then move the load briefly, pause to allow water to soak into the load, and resume adding water. This process may repeat until the correct amount of water has been added to the load.
Why does my washer just says sensing?
When it gets stuck on sensing, it’s likely because of a faulty water inlet valve, shift actuator, drive motor, or main control board. A fault at any of those parts can prevent the washer from advancing past the sensing stage. Diagnosing this issue can be tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing.
