Maytag Atlantis MAVT634AWW sounds like rocks when agitating

Hi there.
My washing machine sounds like there are rocks in the tub when it is agitating. And the clothes are still quite wet when spin cycle finishes. (I have to run an extra spin cycle to get them dry.) This happens just every 3rd load or so. Belt looks good. What's next? How do I remove the agitator?
Thanks so much!

SOURCE: Removing Tub from Maytag Atlantis Washer

I do believe that when you remove the four bolts, it should come out. Sometimes you have to use a little force and shimmy left to right to get it to break loose (no hammers please) especially if you have a lot of scum build-up from soap. They can really be a bear sometimes to remove. Maybe put your foot in the bottom of the tub and hit it on both sides to work it free. Good Luck!!! Jim

SOURCE: Maytag won't spin or agitate

I have had the same problem and found that the teeth on the under side of the agitator had been worn down to nothing... I assume this is from years of over loading (not from me) and so the agitator could not spin any more... i would tighten the bolt that holds th agitator on and it would come loose after a few loads. So my solution was to get a little bit longer bolt and newer plastic washer and tighten it as tight as i could and it seemed to work. Versus buying a new agitator base that would cost about $20-$30 and would have to wait for the part to be ordered. hope this helps

SOURCE: maytag atlantis will agitate won't spin

I had the same problem with my Atlantis a couple of months ago. It turned out to be the bearing for the tub drive pulley. When you look under the washer there are three pulleys. The one for the motor is ont he left, the drain pulley on the right and the big one in the middle for the tub. What I found is that when the bearing went bad, the tub would fill and turn for washing, but it would not turn at all for spinning. I could turn the pulley by hand but the tub refused to budge. I removed the main pulley and could see that the bearing had exploded. You can't buy just the bearing but the whole pulley kit is like $35 so I got off easy. I put the machine back together (which is tricky) but it works fine now. The pulley kit comes with complete instructions but it's really straightforward. The tricky part is that you have to pull down on the end of the drive shaft in order to get the retainer ring onto the pulley. That can be difficult if you don't have a lot of room to work or have a partner to assist. You can replace the whole thing or just the bearing and save the pulley for a rainy day if you want. I opted for the whole replacement. But I saved the old. cause ya neva know!

Have a Maytag Atlantis model MAVT634AWW- on all cycles it makes a loud noise like bearings grinding- what could it be and how can I fix it-Thankyou


The first place to look is if something has gotten trapped between the agitator and the drum. Typically coins etc can find there way near or under but not cause a problem. If something has caught it would have to be metal or hard plastic. The agitator can be removed.

Second place is to see if something has become stuck in one of the holes of the drum. It would have to be like a wire/nail that is scraping against the tub held in place by the drum.

Last resort! Being a Maytag you may have a longer then expected warranty on the moving parts. If you do it might be about time to get the Maytag Guy off his b---.

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.

Missing sock in Maytag Atlantis


it's a possibility that the socks have gone under the agitator but unlikely that they have disappeared alltogether. You can remove the agitator to see if they are there. Tha'ts the best I can tell ya Good Luck

Maytag Atlantis MAV6257AWW


I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6257AWW. I need to replace the transmission. So I removed all four screws from the inner tub but I couldnt get the inner tub pull out, it's stuck.

From what I read on here, the seal nut doesn't have to be remove in order to remove the inner tub.

I tried every, I even hammer the shaft down from the inside of the tub but still no luck. Can someone help, thanks.
