Removing Inlet hoses on a Maytag Atlantis MAV9501EWW

My husband can't access them well because in a rectangular indentation on the back of the washer. It's hard to get a tool in the space to remove the hoses. How can he remove them?

Thank you,

Karen

SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid

The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.

SOURCE: Need to replace Lid Switch for Maytag Atlantis 2002 Washer

Hello, I can help you.


Let me explain to you how the Maytag washer lid switch works.
The lid switch is located on the controls panel, and is activated by opening and closing the washer door. The purpose of the lid switch is to prevent the washer from working with the door open.


It is a safety device to prevent the user from sticking their hands inside of the washer while the washer is agitating or spinning.


When the washer lid switch stops working, the result could be that the washer won't wash, drain, spin and in some cases the washer will not work at all.

You will need a multimeter to check the internal contacts on the washer lid switch.


You will also need to use the wiring schematic to see what contact should be close when the lid switch supposed to be on.


You will need to remember that the Maytag washer lid switch is one of the first parts that you will need to check, when the washer don't want to start filling, agitating, draining or spinning.

SOURCE: maytag atlantis washer got water leaking from

I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.

Hi.

Test and eventually replace the inlet valve.

The inlet valve is tested reading impedance, if it is broken, then it usually read infinity (circuit open). Reaing is done disconnecting valve and pointing multimeter probes at valve solenoid contacts (the cold ones in your case).
A definitive test on inlet valve is done reading volts while cycling and observing if valve is opening. For safety reasons is better if the user performs only tests that can be done with power off.
The switching contacts and inlets is also a test even if basic, I think that the valve is gone.

Here part:

Series 21 models: sub 22004333 (water inlet valve)

Series 12 models:VALVE-INLET

Valve is part nr.2 in diagram below. Click on the picture to enlarge.

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.

My maytag washer mav9501eww does not spin, but it drains and it does agitate


Not sure if this will help, but I had the exact same problem on a Maytag top loader. With the machine powered off, spin the wash drum clockwise with your hands. It should be very loose initially and then will tighten up. Unfortunately I don't know the exact mechanism that makes this work, but it did work for mine.

I hope this helps...good luck!

Spins only with manually start /spin sounds like jet engine


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
