Question about Washing Machines
This concerns a Maytag "atlantis" clothes washer, model MAV6200AWW, style Y7909215, sn 20105180ac,about 12 years old. the wash and rinse cylces work fine. at the end of the rinse cycle, the water drains completely, but the spin cycle does not happen. the motor runs fine, good and loud like it always has up to now, but the basket does not spin at all. I have a generic handyman home appliance repair book which says that in situations like this, the spin solenoid is usually the primary culprit. ok. i have a volt-ohm meter (VOM) and know how to use it. so: (1) how do i find the spin solenoid on this machine? (2) how do i test it, i.e. i assume i need to take a resistance reading across its terminals; what is a "good" read-out value for it? (3) anything else i should check for? (anything in the lid switch that might be wrong?) email@example.com -- thank you

First thin I would try is to check your thermal fuse for continuity.
Its located on the tunnel that incases the heasting element.
Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.
You also want to check the drain hose, the end of the hose is tapperd and tends to collect lint. Run a coat hanger up the hose and see if you can fish something out also check that belt.

sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle
