Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer

Maytag atlantis / left on mini load, filled with super load of towels

I'm facing a mountain of laundry...my son washed a mini load and I didn't even think to check the setting since I never wash a small amount of laundry.
Once the washer stopped in the wash cycle I noticed the smell like a vacuum cleaner having troubles.
I unplugged the machine and waited a few seconds then plugged it back in. I reset the dial so it would fill with the proper amount of water. I hope you're laughing now.
Of course I now have a washer full of water and cannot get it to drain.
Is there an easier method of draining than using a shop vac?
What are the chances that the belt is the major problem?
Thank you for any advice?

Maytag Auto Load-Sensing Washer does not fill with enough water to wash the clothes. How do I get around this?


Did you ever get an answer - all I see are ads :-(

We have the same problem. Not enough water to rinse - even with extra rinse selected. Even our laundry comes out the color of the laundry detergent. I'm sure this is a result of government regulations to reduce water usage. We'll contact Maytag tomorrow.

I just put in a large load of towels and it filled with water but stopped spinning and now it won't spin period


Sounds like the "Overload" has been "Tripped"? What does your manual say to do when that happens?, I think you have to lighten the load and reset/restart?

Maytag Atlantis stopped mid cycle


Bad/worn/broken lid switch look at the back of the lid there is a little lid cam there that hits a switch,if this switch isn't engaging it will do just what you are describing.use a small screw driver to push the button in and see if it starts.

Atlantis washer


Dear Spencer,
OH the trouble I have seen with my washer. Its only 8 years old and I had the same problem with mine it would fill up the rinse cycle and then just sit there with the water in it. I had a tech come out and he told me I wasn't distributing the clothes correctly, mind you I'm 54 and I think I know how to do laundry!
However I had just 1 month ago replaced the water pump because my son decided he wanted to do a weeks wash in one load. So what I think happened is that somehow the machine was knocked out of being level. The guy said he lubricated the motor cradle and leveled the machine, knock on wood just for today the cycle is running all the way through. Hope this helps

Wash cycle will not start


you may have leaned on lid and damaged the lid switch , so the washer thinks the lid is open all the time unit will fill then stop with lid up.

Fills with water than nothing!


Most likely it's the lid switch, part number 22003804.
Remove the back of the console to gain access.
