My maytag washer will not stop after a cycle. It seems to get stuck at the drain spin cycle and won't stop unless I unplug it. Also a while back it ate a pillow case. Need help its only a year old

That's very strange, this just started happening out of the clear blue?

How did it eat a pillow case? Did the pillow case get stuck under the agitator? I own this same washer and mine never eats my pillow case.

I'm attaching the tech data sheet below for your model. On Page 2 get into the ACTIVATING SERVICE DIAGNOSTIC MODE to see if you get any saved fault codes.

--->If there are no saved fault codes, the seven segment display will come back on and display “888”. Upon entry to Service Diagnostic mode, all cycles and options reset to factory default.

If the reset to factory default does not fix it, then that indicates your control board is the culprit.

Here's the control board for your model: W11195970

The pillow case did get stuck under the agitater. And I am not sure how to take that off to get in it. And thank you I will check into this when I get home. And will let you know.

You just pull off the fabric softener dispenser, it just unsnaps up and off, then get a long ratchet extension to remove the agitator bolt, the bolt should be 11 millimeters in size.

Then the agitator pulls up and off.

Ok I did try that and it wouldn't losen. Will try again. Do you know if there is a drain as well in the back that catches all the gunk that I can check. It also makes a awful sound when trying to finish the drain spin cycle. Any thoughts on that?

Keep trying, that bolt will finally turn loose.

Does it drain all the water out? The drain pump is suppose to run while its spinning, that's normal.

Like I mentioned, I own a washer just like this and when my drain pump comes ON it sounds growly, but that's normal.

No, there is not.

Hi Jake
I'm home I printed out the document you gave me. I am unclear what standby mode is. Is it just that the power is on? And then push any three buttons? I don't have what says standby mode on the consul.

Yes, standby mode is just when your washer is not in use.

Hi Jake.
I really would like to thank you for your kindness and patience.

While washer is not powered on( not in use or stand by mode) it said to push three buttons and do it 2 more times to get a reading of 888
Absolutely nothing happens when I do that.
If it's powered on and I push three buttons it still does not give me 888

Then it has to be the control board that's malfunctioning.

I posted the link to your control board in post #2 above.
