Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Open Question

I just bought a used GE 52100E1WW top loading washing machine, not to sure how long it was sitting, but it had standing water in it i just turnedit on filled it up, and now it makes a very very loud grinding noise, it seems to be agitating when i open the door but the sound is incredibly loud, and it sounds as if its gonna blow up or something, can anyone tell me what the problem could be or how much it may cost, thank you

Before you do anything else..UNPLUG it from the 240volt supply ! Read ALL of this before attempting the fix. After draining out the water, lay the machine down to expose the inner workings. You'll need to find the pressure switch which is connected by an thin rubber or plastic tube from the wash tub. Check that it is is properly connected.(YOu may have to cut off a little of each and to give you a an "as new" airtight sealed fitting. A little smear of quikgrip glue around the nozzle at each end will ensure a longlife airtight fit of the tubing.) BUT before you do the final glueing and fitting of the tube. Just have the tube at the pressure switch nozzle connected and BLOW into it. You should hear an audible click when blowing and relesing the air. Even if you hear this, it only confirms that the diaphragm in the pressure switch is ok. It does not tell you if the two way switch inside it of good integrity. By integrity I mean the condition of the switching CONTACTS, As they carry high current, they eventually burn and pit and can become of such HIGH resistance to the flow of current that there is none when the switch is in fact physically in the on position. Further advice from me can be had by accessing the PAYG "Let our Experts Solve YOur Problem" FixYa Link.

SOURCE: My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

My GE washing machine drains the water after the rinse cycle but does not start spinning. It just sits with the water pump running and does nothing. This doesn't happen with every load but seems to be...


Most likely the tube from the tub to the water level switch is full of "gunk" so the washer still thinks there is water in the machine, and therefore will not spin. Take the front panel off by pushing in the retaining clips at the top seam between the front panel and the washer top. Pull the thin hose off the left side of the tub and clean it out. (or cut off an inch or so, but you can only get away with that once or twice). To help prevent re-occurance, every two or three months you can fill the washer to the lowest level with hot water and several cups of bleach (no clothes) and run it through a cycle. Rinse at the ex-large setting to make sure all traces of bleach are gone before doing another load of laundry.

My washer wont hold water


Hi

Make sure your drain hose is not sitting on the floor.

You need to make sure the drain hose goes up to the hight of the tank and then back down to the drain.

If the hose is sitting low, then gravity will just drain the water out.

Let me know if this is not the case and I will dry and diagnose if there is a nother problem.
