Why does it take so long for my Maytag to wash clothes?

The "Normal" cycle is :41 minutes total...or so it says. But, it takes 1:10 minutes to wash!! Why??

Same problem here.

Dryer takes a while too. Might as well go to the laundromat to wash and dry finish in less than 1.5 hrs. Smh.

Too many commands. Just want to wash clothes, rinse, spin in less than an hour.

Worse machine ever I set the cycle on on light since 6:30 It's noe 8:22 and it's still washing

Often times it is a restricted water flow issue, and inlet water lines have small screen inserts which get clogged with sediment, sounds like this is more likely than anything, and easy to clear, just disconnect water hoses and check filters. A kinked drain hose is another common issue which slows cycle times, most drain hoses have a big U angle where it goes into drain pipe and as a drain hose ages, it can collapse at bend restricting drain times, hence, slowing cycle times.

angelagarcia this can be caused by the washer taking a long time to fill with water. You do want to check:

Hot and cold faucets are turned all the way on

Water inlet hoses are not kinked or clogged

Water inlet valve screens are clean

No mine is the same. It’s ridiculous! Everything is hooked up correctly and no other items are running. It’s this energy efficient crap! Which IS NOT ENERGY EFFICIENT! I hate this washer for this very reason! Wish I would’ve done my research before buying.. my old one at least had a quick wash cycle! I spend all day washing clothes because it takes to

Long. My dryer takes less time and it’s a lot older. #hatemymaytagwasher

Yes I agree, it takes so long. I should have done more research too. I'm disappointed

Hey angelagarcia.

As far as I know, the only aspect of the wash cycle that is vulnerable to variations in cycle time is related to filling with water. The machine calls for the water inlet valve to open so the machine can fill to the prescribed level, and then it must wait until the level sensor detects the proper amount of water is in place, at which point the programmed cycle can advance. If the water, for some reason, is not coming in like it should, it would take more time to fill the machine, thereby extending the cycle time. Nothing else I can think of really makes any sense.

Low water supply pressure coming into the washer could be the issue, or it might be an obstruction or clogged filter or a restricted or faulty water inlet valve. Otherwise the lines between the water inlet valve and the tub might have a kink, or leak,or other issue.

Grab a 5 gallon bucket and unplug the washer. Pull the washer out to access the back area. Turn off the water supply valves (that supply water to the hoses leading to the washer). Remove one of the water supply hoses connecting to the water inlet valve. Hold the hose over the bucket, and slowly open the water supply valve to observe the flow/looking for low pressure or flow rate. Close the water supply valve. Repeat with the other hose.

If you don’t see a problem there, move on to the water inlet valve and check the ports and screen filters for debris, clogs, etc. This is where you’re most likely to find the problem, I would guess. If not, you’ll need to check the tub supply lines from the water inlet valve, routed of course on the inside of the washer cabinet.

Provide the model number for your washer if you should need additional feedback.

If/when you find the problem, please post an update for us.

Good Luck.

I have noticed I can shave quite a bit of time off by making sure no other large water usage activities are going on that may reduce water pressure. In other words, no dishwasher running, no filling bathtub, no one taking a 20 minute showers.

Sounds like the bearing are shot. In the spin cycle will it be costly to repair

Why does my Maytag top load washer take over an hour or even longer sometimes to wash a normal load of clothes
