Maytag MAV7650AWW spins during agitate cycle

Water is spilling over the rim of the tub, we checked the hoses, the pump, replaced the belt. The tub is spinning during the agitate cycle. Is it the transmission, the brake assembly or a control panel?

If the tub spins during the agitate cycle, the the problem should be in the timer. It sounds like everything else is working properly. A new timer is fairly expensive, but your Atlantis is fairly new so it should be worth the money.

The Transmission would be my first guess.

Check the level switch and the level hose. You must have impinged the hose when you were doing maneuvers.

My washer is not draining. I used to be able to reset it and it would work but now it wont start on any setting and is full of water. Is there anything i can try.


Hi,
If your Maytag washer is not draining, follow these procedures to find out what is the problem.Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the knob to turn the washer on. If the washer motor doesn't run, check the following parts.



The wall outlet: Make sure that there are about 120 volts present at the wall outlet. Connect a good working hair dryer to see if it works.If the hair dryer works ok, then the problem has to be in the washer. If the hair dryer doesn't work, then look for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.


The lid or door switch : The lid switch is a safety device use to stop the motor from running if the washer door is opened during the agitation or spin cycles. A bad lid switch could be the reason for your washer not draining.

The pump : Check for obstructions inside of the pump and inside of the tub.
Check the pump impeller, the pump belt, check the drain hose for any kinks. Any problems in these parts could be the cause for the Maytag washer not draining.
Lower the drain hose to a bucket to see if the water drains out. If the water won’t drain or just trickles out, most likely there is an obstruction on the pump or inside of the tub and that could cause the washer not draining.
To check the pump, remove the front panel, lean the washer against the wall and bail the water out with a plastic container.
To check the pump, remove the pump belt and turn the pump pulley to make sure that the pulley is turning freely.
Put a couple towels near the pump to catch any water from the pump. Remove the tub to pump hose at and check inside of the pump for any obstruction. If you find an obstruction remove it.
If you don’t find anything, reinstall the hose and remove the hose at the tub, and check for obstructions.
A Maytag washer not draining could be cause simply by a kink drain hose.
You need to make sure that when you replace the pump, you adjust the belts properly.

Maytag PAV2300AWW Washer makes grinding sound when agitating


Sounds like it is the bearing on the water pump. Take off back plate and replace and remove 3 screws and two hoses (the one hose is a waste line so make sure you have a bucket to empty our waste water) after removing these remove belt on bottom of pump.

Maytag washer bangs during spin cycle


chances are you had a blockage in the pump and it tried to spin with the water still in the drum. check the bottom hose and filter for blockages so it does not occur again.
