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.

SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis- Purchased in

Hi,

The noise you are experiencing is the bearings of the machine going bad. I have a similar model Maytag and the seals and the bearings have been replaced twice since I have owned the washer. Maytag will normally suggest replacement of the washer since the repairs will cost more than half of what a new washer can be purchased for. It is a labor intensive job and requires for the washer to be almost completely disassembled to do the replacement needed. Sorry to say in time it will start to leak water.

The parts :-

alone will cost $80 or more and a special tool is needed to complete the repair. I do not recommend this as a DIY project.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

I have a Maytag Atlantis top load machine. It is 7 years old. I have very dark oil dripping from under the machine at the bottom edge of the front. I am assuming the gear box is gone but wanted to confirm...


Sorry to confirm your suspisions but its leaking oil from the transmission and its exxxpensive to replace the transmission. And sad but true the good ole days of dependabilty of the maytag is gone espically since 5 years ago Maytag was bought by Whirlpool. a Whirlpool is a good machine but nothing was good as the old Maytag's

Trying to remove aggitator from maytag atlantis I removed fabric softener part need to get the shaft of aggitator off trying to clean my softener keeps leaking out after wash is done


i believe all you have to do is put your fingers underneath the bottom of the agitator and pull up and the whole agitator pops up to remove it out of the tub.

My Maytag top loader leaks at the bottom of the bucket. I took off the front cover and should see that the wahser at the top of the shaft is leaking. Is this an easy fix?


not easy, unit must be stripped to allow access to bottom seals and bearing/s. Special tools needed and a goog knowlege of the wiring.
