Re: Maytag Atlantis Washer

This sounds like a foreign object in machine, possible bra wire. Regards Advisor

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6200AWW Washer agitates and spins. Water sometimes empties. Pump is fine spins freely and the impeller is fine. Could it be the belt ?

You will need to check for an article of clothing stuck between the basket and tub that may be partially blocking the drain hole.

Maytag atlantis washer doesnt spin on spin cycle, also found plastic shavings in clothes, appear to be coming from the top outer edge of the tub, a white plastic trim piece. wash cycle seems to work fine...

There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle. You should start by checking the balance shocks .

My Maytag Atlantis is tearing holes in our t-shirts? Any idea what could be causing this?

Hi dingoleo, A typical cause of garment's being torn is not enough water for the amount of items or too many items vs. amount of water...aka overloading. First thing to look for aside from that is insure you have full tub of water and make sure the water isn't siphoning out your drain during the wash cycle. Make sure the drain hose is secure in a standpipe at a minumum of usually 36"-40" hieght...( unless the unit is elevated via a pedestal or other means, the drain has to be adjusted accordingly ) without the hose being pushed down inside the standpipe too far. Just make sure the drain hose exit isn't below the water level of the washer. Also do not cover over the hole where the drain enter's the standpipe, many people do this to keep the drain from popping out, but it causes a siphone effect. Check out those thing's, it's a start. Let me know and if necessary we'll move forward. Than's for coming to "fixya" for assistance. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

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.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water

Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

Can i remove the softner dispenser out of a Maytag Atlantis washer. There is a musty smell and I think this is where it is coming from.

yes you can remove both the cover the and the cup
the cover just pops off
grab it with both hands a gentle squeeze and pull tword you,, it should pop right off
then snap back in when your ready
it would also be a good idea to wash your tub once a ytear with crystal dish washer detergent
1 cup and and empty load this will help keep your outer tub clean of soap residue
