    Hi,

    8 month old maytag washing machine
    Don't get too deep into it and void your warranty. Should have 12 months from the purchase date.

    that has intermittent no high spin cycle
    has anyone run into this problem ?? everything is level and setup properly.
    Intermittent problems are the worst!
    One common thing about front loads is they must be full to work properly. Small, 1/2, partial loads will often go off-balanced and not spin correctly. Many people overload a top load and under load a front load! Fill the basket from the bottom to the top completely and see what happens. Failing that, call the warranty depot people in to have a peek.

    hi, i just told my wife about the load being full and she told me this problem only happens when she uses a hot water cycle, and doesn't seem to be associated with the amount of clothes in the machine?

    Never heard of the water temp effecting the spin before.....soap retention in the clothes could be an issue.

    Testing time, next hot cycle that won't go through a regular spin, don't remove anything and run it through a cold cycle to see if the same/better/worse/etc and relay this info to the warranty depot repair company.
