Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV9501E Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Spins only with manually start /spin sounds like jet engine

Maytag Atlantis Washer Model # MAV9501EWW In spin cycle I half to manually start it. When spinning it sounds like a jet engine (also like a dry bearing. I can stop the tub by hand and the jet engine like noise (also dry bearing like sound) stops.
I suspect a dry bearing but I need to know if threads on plastic nut between inner and outer tubs are left or right hand threads. If I remove this plastic nut will it give me access to the bearing?
How much does the bearing cost and do I need a puller to remove it?

    Thank you for your insite but I have gone ahead and took it apart. I caught it before the shaft was scored. There was some miner surface rust but it cleaned up well with fine emory cloth. I'm now installing the new bearing after pressing as much high temp grease into the bearing as possible (this was not easy).

    I grew up an Auto Mehanic along with 16 yrs experience in Electronics so I am not afraid to try.

Throw this machine out; it is a piece of junk. Transmission shaft is probably scored up so new bearings will do you no good. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Model MAV9501EWW not spinning but it is pumping


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the washer is not spinning however, pump out the water then the problem is with the lid switch that is bad and needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Water not filling in tub washer spins,


It sounds as if the timer has failed internally. Spinning on each setting means the motor is not reversing and that reverse function is controlled by the timer itself. It would never fill if it is stuck in spin unless you select rinse and depending on cycle it can inject water in the spin during the final rinse. If your machine does this normally see if it injects water. If it does inject water at that point I am 95 % sure your timer is the problem.

Still wet clothes


It sounds like the high speed of your motor is not functioning which tells me it is either burnt and needs to be replaced, or that the control dial is malfunctioning. Because those motors have two or three speeds, usually one of the speeds of the motor is malfunctioning. Always check connections too, and see if it functions in the spin on another cycle. Best of luck. C

My maytag atlantis mav6200 only spins on whites cycle


Try running the machine in another cycle the very next time you use it. I'm trying to determine if this is machine fault something else.

If you just used the machine wait for about 1/2 hour before starting it again.
