Couldn't figure out how to remove the dials

After of hours on the internet looking for answers ( Without any success ) I accidently came upon the solution. There's a small hidden cover plate on the front of the knob that just looks cosmetic. If you slip a knife under it it pops off then the rest is a piece of cake. Maytag had no info on their web site and lots of other inaccurate info is posted on the web.

Washer completely stopped and would not run.

My timer was not working properly, it had to be turned to start each cycle and it would not move to the rinse cycle after the wash cycle - but it did run. I did not want to put out $70 or $80 bucks if I could make it work - but then it completely stopped. (The washer got off balance due to the load and would not run, after bouncing around on the floor.) The washer was getting power, since the pump would work and it would fill with water - but would not start the wash cycle. I ordered a new timer and put it in, which was pretty easy. First you unplug the unit, you don't want to get a shock. There are three screws on the back of the control panel that are removed with a phillips head screwdriver. The panel is then leaned/titled forward and the four plastic fins pull out of the slots, make sure you tilt it forward as you remove it and do not break off the fins/pins. Unplug the old timer and remove one nut holding it down. In order to remove the timer you have to remove the knob on the front. To do this you have to pull the small cosmetic cover off of the front of the knob - which you can pop off with a small screwdirver - it is in the very center of the knob. Once the small cover is off there is a small clip, pull it out and the knob will come off easily. Pull the timer out of the back of the control panel and put the new timer back in, plug in the timer and put the nut back on to hold it. Replace the knob, clip and cover on the front. Push the fins/pins back into the holes, replace the screws and you should be ready to go once you plug it back in. In my case it still would not run and my problem ended up being the lid switch. I figured this out by holding the button down with a pair of pliers and the washer started. I knew then that the switch needed to be adjusted. When the machine got off balance, the bouncing caused the lid switch to get out of place. I had to remove the control panel again and the lid, which is held on by two clips, that are easy to remove (only need to remove one), carefully put a small screw dirver under the clip and lift it up, then pop it off. You can then adjust the button, which has two parts, the switch and the push rod. This was the hardest part of the repair. The switch is not really put in well, looks like it should pop in to the slot, but would not allow the swith and push rod to work together. It sits on top of the opening. It took several tries to finally get it back right and adjusted with the push rod in the right place, but once I got it adjusted, replaced the lid, put the control panel back, plugged it in - it ran like a top. The new timer runs until the cycle is complete.

Wash on one cycle, would not spin

I ordered timer from another supplier. Remove back control panel. Pull knob off timer. Unplug wire harness. replace timer, still didn't work. I replaced the control board and lid switch both very easy to do but to no avail. The motor would just hum so I removed the front panel and replaced the motor which was easy also. No luck. I therefore called PartsSelect.com and ordered a timer from them and VOILA!! All working great. After all that, it was indeed the timer and the "new" one I got from another online supplier was bad that they sent me.
