Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

No sounds or movenent

The washer was in a spin cycle last evening when it sounded as if it was in a bind. I opened the lid and of course the spin stopped. I reshut the lid and attempted to restart the washer and it now makes no sounds or attempts to do anything in any cycle? My wife states that would make this sound sporadically but it would usually correct it's self after reclosing the lid. I saw that some washers have a fuse and thought that could be part of the problem except I can't find a fuse. Can you please assist. My personal thinking is electrical likely the timer am I close or do suggest another answer?

Possible bad lid switch. You should hear it click when lid closes; if not in needs to be replaced. Inexpensive part. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Washer will not spin agitated slow GE WJRR4170G1WW


Dawn, sounds like your lid switch may have gone bad. Just a guess. There is a place called repair clinic that has some videos of how things work. Check that out and see what you think. You may need to repost your problem if that doesn'rt help you any.

Washer agitates but won't spin or drain - makes a humming/buzzing sound during those cycles


check the pump,could have a sock or something stuck in it.usually i would say to check the lid switch,open and close the lid,if you don't hear a clicking sound the washer won't go into spin or drain but if you're hearing a humming sound that's the motor watch this video
http://www.youtube.com/user/RepairClinic?v=DwV71h86Gxw it will show you how to get to the pump.pop off the two clips that hold the pump on and remove the pump just pull it backwards off of the motor shaft,now get a piece of wire and strip the ends on it,2 to 3 inches long,unplug the washer before you start to work on it,get your jumper wire and stick it into the wire harness that connects to the lid switch, don't plug it into the ground plug it into the other two wires not the green wire,i'm pretty sure it's the two outside wires and the green ground is in the middle,plug the washer back in and pull the timer out in the spin cycle,if the motor runs and spins you know something is stuck in the pump or the pump is bad,but just to make sure it's not the lid switch and it is the pump put the pump back on and start the washer again if you hear the humming it's the pump or before you pull the pump jump out the lid switch and see if it spins and drains,if it doesn't then pull the pump so you don't have to stick the bad pump back on the washer,all the lid switch is for is so the washer will not run in the spin with the lid open and some washers won't even agitate if the lid is open by using the jumper wire we are bypassing the lid switch to check the washer while it's apart.hope this helps and if you can let us know how you make out so if someone else reads this with the same problem it will help them out too.

My washer won't spin. it's been in storage for 5 yrs and ran just fine at that time


am thinking if all works good except won't spin, it is your lid switch. Under your washer lid you will notice a peg of some sort that when lidnis closed goes into a slot/hole and that triggers the spin cycle. That is in lamens terms know as a safety idiot switch. It is designed so when the washer is spinning at those high speeds,na child or not to smart adult does not open lid and put hand in while spinning. SO, if switch goes out, of course it won't spin. Switch is cheap , under 20 bucks at any appliance parts store, and they even can tell you at store how to putnin yourself by showing on one of there washers on display. Let me know if I nailed it!!

The washer recently began producing a high pitch squeek during the washing cycle, and a louder than normal sound during the spin cycle.


The motor Carriage is not pulling back fast/far enough special poly lube you can use other lube just wont last long or will deteriorate wheels quickly. What you can do is set for spin, hold open lid slightly with one hand pull back on motor slightly. If sound stops you got it. Other wise sounds like mount stem may need replacing if you do also replace spin bearing this is under basket and outer tub on top of transmission.

My washer does not drain after the rinse cycle


Open and close lid, listen for 'clicking' sound. If no 'clicking' sound, replace lid switch.
