Hello. My Maytag MVWC415EW1 fills up. It makes clicking sound and does not agitate. The drum is not moving side to side. It does drain & spin. Thank you for any help

I can't see your last 2 videos, convert them to .mp4 and re-upload them. Or you can upload the videos to Youtube and post the Youtube link here. Or share your video per Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive and post the share link in your next post.

But from the sound of your washer, Possibly its a bad shift actuator.

Look here:

Usually it's the shift actuator that is the culprit.(there are videos in the threads below)



Your model uses the exact same shift actuator:
W10913953 Actuator


There is a video in the shift actuator part link that shows you how to replace it.

In the 2nd video its spinning right? But I don't hear it draining first? But you said it drains and spins fine in the drain/spin cycle?

It seems like the shift actuator is the problem.

I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

You can get into the ACTIVATING THE SERVICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODES and see what fault codes you get, if any.

On Page 2 of your tech. data sheet do: ACTIVATING THE SERVICE DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODES

Then do FAULT CODE DISPLAY MODE on Page 3--->Then you can see what fault code/codes you are getting on Page 6 and Page 7: FAULT/ERROR CODES
