I had the same problem today after disassembling and reassembling the same model. In another post they talk about the idiotic white plastic retainers that sit on top of the tub and how mold collects on their undersides. When you replace these, make sure their seated correctly so that they can move independently of each other. The bottom white ring had shifted and locked against the upper ring causing the agitator to stop spinning as well as the tubs. Once I shifted the two rings back to their correct position everything worked normally. Probably a rare fluke but easy to check out and the good news is you don't have to get out a single tool. Good luck

Should water back up into the tub upon spin completion on maytag atlantis


No, If water is coming back, the sewer is cloged up or is a big posibility that the washers transmission is not spenning at all. it may sound like is agitating during the wash and spinning during the rinse. To check it, put soap inside the drum if it doesn't get disolved after the cycle is done. The transmission needs to be replace. Is costly you may want to shop for a new one.

There should be and access panel on the rear, lower left side of the washer. This is where the drain pump is. Remove this panel to see if the hose has come off the pump or if it is broken. Here is the new pump in case you need it.

Out of balance switch will not stop washer when load becomes out of balance.


Your switch is bad. You don't necessarily need the switch. Snip the wires off either side of the switch and fuse them together with a wire connector.

Washing Machine staring making a grinding noise now it broken!


No, not the motor. The pump has a steel sleeve that has come up out of the pulley and has locked down the pump. Replace the pump and you will be fine.

My MAV8600AWW top load washer makes a loud steady squeal whining noise in spin cycle. Load size doesn't affect noise. Machine is 7 years old. Any guess as to problem?


Maytag had problems with the berrings on the transmission . water gets in and the berring goes bad rorring as it spins. Dump it and get a Whirlpool.

Maytag washer will not spin. motor overheats and drum won't turn


If it has a belt try loosening the belt and see if the transmission and pump will turn and are not stuck.
If they are they will have to be replaced. Try the motor and see if it turns freely with the belt loose or off. If they all turn freely check motor.

If your timer has a gray rubber ring on it, the timer is in 4 pieces. Pull the top middle part out. Then there's a white locking piece in the center. Once that's out the other 2 pieces will pull out. Note: The photo shows the top cover removed. The locking pin is the white center. RanchMom
