Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Older Maytag fills with water, but doesn't run.

We have a Maytag washing machine MODEL A512, Serial -096706 NG
we have had it for 24 wonderful years, 4 or 5 loads a day. It will fill with water, but then stops. Doesn't have any noise like a motor burning, just won't do anything in any cycle. The knob turns around, but nothing. If it could be a part to replace, let me know. Or is it time to shop for a new one. thanks, Peg

I have a 20 year old A512 & replaced only a very few items on it (fill valves, belts & air gap).

I would troubleshoot it & repair myself....can you use a voltmeter & are you comfortable exposing the timer / wiring.

My guess is motor (or timer, but less likely since its dead in all cycles). but you've got to get a solid diagnosis so you can order parts.

I suggest oyu find a guy on Craigslsit to repair..
cheers
Bob

Just bought a 4 year old maytag 300 quiet series and hooked it up all front buttons light up when you push what you want but will not fill with water. Goes to cycle where water should be spraying around...


Sounds like an internal timer malfunction.
Maytag Customer Service: 1 (800) 344-1274 U.S.
Try to find your model # and serial number if not out of warranty before called.
It sounds as if your machine needs to be inspected by a service repair agent in your area. Maytag can lead you to an authorized local repair man.

Motor seems to run but won't agitate or spin.


Dont take it apart you dont know enough to do that safeky!
It could be the pressure switch and or hose. Put that to a local techo and see what he offers to charge to fix it.

Maytag A512 Leaks out airgap when draining/spinning out


Check pump. I would say it is the most likely cause for the water leak, especially if itdoes it while filling and on spin as the pump holds some residual water in it . That is normal.
