Still trying to access control panel on maytag washer atlantis

After removing the 3 screws in the back, what else to do? the outside still seems attached. do i pull it a certain way like toward the front of the machine? also, do i need to pull off the timer knob in front - can't seem to do that either..

    thank you. but i am not sure i understand - have little experience with appliances. what do you mean the knob clips off? i've tried to pull it straight off, but it doesn't come off.

    the problem is that none of the cycles drain and spin down on the last of any cycle. at the end there is water. it will drain and spin if a spin is selected from a different cycle.

    for example: if on perm press, water is left at the end. if select either white or delicate spin, it will drain and spin down. if perm press spin - no change.

    if a white cycle is done, again the last drain and spin doesn't happen. if select either perm press or delicate spin, it will then drain and spin. but will not if white spin is selected.

    everything else is fine. no strange noises, etc. from what i've read online, the timer is the problem.

Hi. i think you have a drain problem .not the timer . i would check the drain lines. i am sure that's where you will find a blockage. try that.

What does F 71 on a Maytag 3000 series mean


F71 is a "heatbeat failure" which means that your front interface control board is shorted and will need to be replaced. it's actually fairly easy to replace and can definitely be done by yourself. To access the part, just pull the unit forward and remove the 3 screws coming in from the back of the top panel. Remove the top panel by pulling it back, up, and off. Then remove all the screws going into the top of the control panel. Remove the dispenser drawer and remove the screws coming in through the dispenser. Remove the screws coming from the inside of the dryer going forward into the control panel, then remove the control panel (it's just clipped in on the bottom. After that you can disconnect the wire harnesses to the front interface control board and replace that part.

My Maytag Atlantis washer stopped working after moving?


maybe the hose came off the water level switch,,,just remove the screws in each end of the control panel,,some machines you have to remove the panel end caps to get to the screws,,,,then pull slightly forward and flip the panel back to access the level switch,,,,,,my hose came off 1 time and flooded the kitchen lol,,,,but air pressure coming through the clear plastic hose kicks off the water coming in and allows the timer to move forward to next cycle!

Maytag Atlantis top loader washing machine won't spin out water. it spins but the water doesn't go out. it's only about 5 years old. help please!!!


The drain hose is plugged or kinked or the drain pump is not working. Check and clear the drain hose from any debris that might be causing the water not to be pumped out. After checking and clearing the drain hose and the water is still not pumped out of the washer, check the pump to see if the impeller is good or the pump needs to be replaced. Access to the pump requires the top cover and the front panel to be removed. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The top cover is attached to the front panel by two clips positioned at about 3 inches from the corners. Use a putty knife and insert the blade into the seam between the top cover and the front panel assembly at the position of the clips.

Push the putty knife blade against the clips, one side at a time while lifting the cover to disengage the clips. Lift the top cover off the front panel then remove the two screws securing the front panel to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet.

Lean the top edge of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift the panel to disengage its bottom from the base clips. Move the front panel away from the cabinet to access the pump.

Disconnect the pump inlet and outlet hoses from the pump then remove the three screws mounting the pump assembly to the base of the washer.

Slide the pump to the rear of the washer to disengage the belt from the pump pulley and pull the pump assembly out of the washer.

Clear the pump inlet and outlet hoses for any debris to ensure water is not blocked from being pumped out of the washer.

Check the impeller. Remove the four screws securing the pump housing to the pump base then lift the housing off the base. Clean the impeller and the pump housing; replace the pump assembly if the impeller is damaged.

To replace the pump, set the pump pulley into the base opening and put the belt on the pulley. Install the mounting screws while holding tension on the belt to keep it on the pulleys.

Connect the pump inlet and outlet hoses and secure it with the clamps.

Position the bottom of the front panel back into the base clips then secure the top to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet with the two securing screws.

Push the top cover down into position to the front panel to complete the procedure.

Note: For Maytag Atlantis MAV8000A, the pump assembly is part number 35-6465.

I NEED INTO GET INTO THE TOP OF THE WASHER TO REPLACE THE OPEN LID KILL SWITCH


You should be able to remove / open the top control panel (rear top) screws and tip it out forward to gain access to the lid switch. Be careful of the small air line that goes to the pressure switch. If that comes unhooked your machine will over fill.

Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 - The machine buzzed and stopped. Now it wont run. Dont think its the lid switch


does it fill with water?
Does it not do anything after it fills?
If this is the case than it is most definitely the lid switch.
I recently had the exact same problem. Easy fix if you are handy.
Remove back of control panel to access the mounting screws. this will give you hand access to the lid switch. Try manually activating it after letting it fill. Replace switch or repair if able.
Good luck

How do I remove gravel underneath washer tub?


To access the washer:
  1. Use a putty knife about an inch wide.
  2. Push the putty knife on the sides to release the top panel and lid clips.
  3. Lift the top panel back towards the wall.
  4. Tape the lid so it does not fall back and chip.
  5. Remove the two 5/16 inch screws on the inside of the front panel. The top of the front panel will come towards you.

Replacing a siphone break


Disconnect unit from its power source before servicing!
The lower half (washer) can be pulled away from the upper section, allowing full access to the unit. Remove the front panel by taking out the 2-phillips head screws at the bottom of the front panel, pull outward at the bottom of the front panel to disengage the hanger clips from the top panel. Remove the 2-3/8"hex head screws from each corner of the side panels connecting to the top panel. The top panel can then be tilted up and back on its hinges, so that acces may be gained to the siphon break. 4-5/16" hex head screws secure the 2 halves of the siphon break to the back panel and are accessible from the outside of the back panel.
Follow the link below to see an image of the siphon break assy. along with ordering information.
