Maytag Atlantis My Maytag Atlantis makes aloud shinning sound when spinning. It spins fine but loud! Is there a way to tell if it is just the belt?

Mine is doing the same thing. In 2004 (might be 2003 or 2005), Maytag redesigned the insides. They were getting complaints from the Maytag dealers and repairmen about having to replace the bearings on so many of the machines. Maytag redesigned the entire part and paid all customers to have it replaced. My machine had the bearing replace and the entire part replaced. It fixed it for a little while, but started doing it again not long after. I happened to be the bookkeeper for the Maytag dealer I bought my washer from. He was so frustrated with Maytag (along with many others who attended the same Maytag repair schools). Maytag never did recall the product. Only offered to replace it for free and waited out the warranty on these bad washers. They have now gone back to the original "dependable" design, but it does not help us who are still having issues and out of warranty. I never have understood why they weren't forced to recall the product. Or how they could choose to voluntarily replace the bearings until the warranty was out but never have to stand by the product afterwards. This very washer was the demise of the business I worked for. Not only was this struggling dealer having to spend all of his time repairing these washers but customers were no longer willing to by the "dependable" Maytag anymore. In fact, my boss said "So much for the lonely Maytag repairman" like the commercials always say. He visited with many in the same line of business in the smaller towns and they were all struggling also. Many customers held them responsible and began shopping at the big box stores for other brands.

I can't remember what the part was exactly. It had to do with a part that had two bearings one on top and bottom....seems like it was in the transmission.

Grouling noise in the spin cycle


First, check the belt (located in the bottom of the unit) and if it shows signs of wear (black dust) and shiny sides on belt and black marks on the motor, transmission, and water pump pulleys - replace the belt. The motor is spring loaded and acts as the tensioner up to a point of too much wear on the belt.

You will need to tilt the washer about 45 degrees and prop it to keep it from going all the way over (just makes it more difficult to right it later). Pop the belt off by rotating it while pulling the belt off the edge of the transmission (larger) pulley. Again, the motor pulley is spring loaded and will flex appropriately. Reverse the process with installation of a new (exact replacement part number).

If this doesn't fix the problem, you may have to call the Maytag Repairman. They would have replaced the belt anyway and would probably charge $50 + for the belt and installation.

Start by checking the belt by tilting the machine back and examining for wear, glazing and cracks, next pull the belt to make sure everything turns. Post back if this looks fine.

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.
