Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
Machine drips water after wash cycle is completed.
Check and see if the leaking is coming from the pump. There could be a leak in the hose that comes off the pump or there could be a leak in your pump. If there is a crack or anything on the pump then just replace it and your problem will be fixed. It's an easy and cheap fix. The pump is located right at the front of the washer on the front of the motor. Just make sure you clamp off the hoses with hose clamps before taking the pump off or you will have water every where. I hope this helps you and if you have any other questions feel free to ask. Good luck.

The problem is caused by a sticking water inlet valve/s.
Only solution is to replace unfortunately.
Please rate my solution.

Testimonial: "Thank you it was very helpful"
I just fixed this same problem.
The issue is that the valves are not fully closing because debris is preventing them from seating.
To fix, from the rear of the machine
1: Turn off water, unplug, and disconnect hot and cold lines.
2: Take off top panel (three screws)
3: Unhook hose at on valve at Water Outlet
4: Remove valve (one screw).
5: Using compressed air, blow air into the Water outlet.
This will probably open the valves, so you can pour water into the Water outlet. Use more compressed air to clean out the unit.
When you are done you the valves will probably be open, thus you might be able to blow into the water outlet (that is OK).
The goal is to remove any sediment in the valves.
Reinstall. When you the water is hooked up, the water pressure should force the valves closed.
Test by running the washer, then let it sit for a 12 hours. If you do not have any standing water, your valves are seating properly.
Worst case you can buy a new valve assembly for about $30.00
