My old A210 stopped agitating (with smoke rubber and
screaming sound) after I moved it around to replace the water heater. So I took
its front cover off and tilt the unit to dismount/remount the belt, pulley,
spring and most of parts under the bottom. It works again with a new issue now.
When it works in agitate phase, it spins so fast that water comes out from the
top of the tub, accumulated at outer tub cover, eventually flow along the outer
tub and make a mess. I notice there are 6 holes on tub cover, but water is just
spilling out too much to drain back in tub.
Any idea what I should check next? Appreciate your advice.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the transmission in your unit is bad,it has internal gears and the ones involved in the agitation are broke or bad, to replace the transmision is a lengthy process, your best bet is to just scrap it and get a new washer. I don't know if you know this but maytag company is no longer in business. They were purchased by Whirlpool back in November of 2006. One of the reasons is all the poor quality of their appliances. I am a technician that has been doing this for 15 years. The best unit I have seen to date is the Whirlpool Duet. I hardly ever have to work on them. Sorry for the bad news. Hope this helps.

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

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.

This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.
