Question about Maytag MAV6200 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Water Leak I have a Maytag Atlantis Model #MAV6200AWW. Last week after starting a load, water was puddled under the washer. Thought it was a drain clog so hired a plumber to clean the outgoing plumbing pipes in the house. Tried another load of laundry today and once the water starts entering the tub (at fill-up), water immediately starts emptying onto the floor. Check connections at back of washer and all is good. Any suggestions on how I diagnose the problem and possibly fix it myself? Thank you

Yes all you have to do is take off the front cover of the washer or the back cover, it it usually the front on top load washers. I believe your water pump may be cracked, but am not sure. What you need to do is remove the cover and start your washer and let it fill. Get a flashlight and pay close attention to where the water is leaking from. Then all you have to do is replace the part and your done. Any part dealing with water leaking will not be hard to change.

Check the water inlet valve. If not that I'm afraid you might have a hole in fill line or tub.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6200AWW Washer agitates and spins. Water sometimes empties. Pump is fine spins freely and the impeller is fine. Could it be the belt ?


You will need to check for an article of clothing stuck between the basket and tub that may be partially blocking the drain hole.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6200AWW. It often does not empty out the tub when it is finished, and the water is still soapy after it is done. If I turn it back to spin it does and drains ok.


If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump.

Maytag atlantis washer got water leaking from


I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.
