Normally, slow then build up of speed is a sign of the motor brushes wearing. this may cause squealing under load. the pump pulley may be hard to turn due to hard water calcifying or a build up of dirt... you may want to check the pump out before it becomes another problem. also,are the bearings in the drum dry? the belt also does not need to look as though it is about gone before it needs replacing... it could be that the belt is slipping whilst under a faster loading... try some belt grip spray to see if this cures the noise.if it does,then you are certain you need to replace the belt(s)

Spin cycle is slow


Are you using the correct setting? Some settings only spin slowly (for delicates for example) and other settings spin at various speeds. When the load is off balance it doesn't get up to full speed either.
If it used to work at full speed, is your belt loose and slipping when spinning? Motor could be going at full speed but the drum is not. Is there an unusual or different sound? Possible smell of rubber as it slips?

Atlantis MAV6260AWW is not spinning at full speed, its agitating while spinning leaving cloths very wet .


check under lip of washer or around outside of tub. A garment may be in the void between tub and basket. It won't always slow down spin cycle as it may roll around when spin cycle is on but occasionally it will ball up and jam between the basket and tub thus decreasing the spin speed. Socks are a common problem and if you are sometimes whiffing a foul water smell that is the article of wet clothing that has remained wet for some time.

THE MACHINE RUNS VERY WELL QUIET UNTIL THE FINAL SPIN CYCLE THEN FROM THE BACK OF THE MACHINE THERE IS A SQUEAL THAT GETS LOADER AS THE SPEED PICKS UP


This may well be the drum drive belt in the back of the washing machine. This belt transfers drive from the motor to the drum for both wash cycles and spinning. If the belt is slipping slightly on the pulley then a squeal may well be heard on the spin cycle and will change in pitch as the speed of the drum increases. At lower speeds (wash cycles) the belt probably won't slip. I don't personally know of this model but there is usually a tension adjustment nut/bolt near the motor to tighten the belt and stop it slipping.

My washer squeals during spin cycle model frigidaire fex831cso. Sometimes it does it on the highest speed it reaches other times at slow speeds. One thing that is constant is... once it starts squealing...


The belt on my was the culpret. The washer belt has a spring loaded idler. Unplug power and move the idler off of the belt and use a spring hook or longnose vice grips to pull spring out of slot and into the next slot closser to you. There are 5 slotts. Push idler back by hand and put belt back on it. Your done. The transmission just spins as a unit in spin cycle, it does sit on top of a bearing,but that didn't seem to be the problem. If the belt tension doesn't fix it, put some grease and oil in the bearing or replace it.
Eventually you will need a new belt so order one now.

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer


Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps
