Since the machine would not drain, I suspected the drain pump. A friend in appliance repair tested that for me and it was good. All one has to do with that is hook a test line to the pump with 120 volts and if it runs it is good. He then told me to see it the mother board which is located in the right upper area above the dryer drum had a burned place at a resistor and to note if the door would not lock. I checked this and the circuit board was not damaged and the wax motor which locks the door was working OK. (This unit is a combo stack dryer and washer) I then suspected the timer because my wife told me that it had been making a grinding noise. The timer was replaced by the one you sent me and it solved the problem. ( My friend really did not want to work on this machine since he had replaced the inner drum and bearing about six months ago and it took all day)Thanks a bunch. The timer came in one day from the time of order.

Power would not shut off unit after washer finished wash cycle. Had to push power off button to take power off and allow door to unlock. Put new timer on and it did not fix the problem. Replaced the two micro switches involved with the wax motor and that did not fix the problem. Finally, I smelled electrical wiring smoke and found that the mother board had a burned resistor (#11). This then told me that the problem was in the wax motor. Ordered a new wax motor and a new mother board (located at the top right above the dryer) and the washer is working fine. It was through my lack of experience that caused all of this trial and error. If you have a problem with the washer door not locking or not terminating power after the cycle, I think that you should suspect the wax motor first. If the mother board resistor is not burned you may get away without that expense by replacing the wax motor or the spin enable micro switches first. The control board is expensive so it is best to check the micro switches for proper operation and if they are OK, I would put a new wax motor on the washer. These have caused the Maytag a lot of trouble and they have a revised motor now.
Figured out it had to be the timer after checking unit out and with a little research. Ordered a timer, it was so simple to replace just unscrewed cover and removed timer, it just plugs in, hooked it back up works like a charm.
