Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Open Question

My washer is full of water but will not start

I have a Maytag model # MAV6300AWW. I have replaced the timer and the lid switch. I have power from the wall to the washer and have checked the terminals on the control panel with a multimeter while the timer control was "on". the washer doesn't make a sound or anything to show its "binding" or stuck. I've been reading the post on this website hoping there was a reset switch but there is not. someone please give me some guidance. I am mechanically inclined so details help me a lot. Thanks in advance

Since you know about the lid and check switches, they are located under the splash (control)panel. unplug the machine and remove the screws holding the panel on. Using a meter check the switches for continuity and replace if they've gone bad.

SOURCE: how do you replace left lid lock on Maytag Neptune washer

Problem may be with door switch and not the door lock. If you are able you could try to locate the switch and jump the two wires together to see if the od code goes away. Even if it works you should not leave it that way but get a new switch and replace the faulty one.

SOURCE: Maytag washer will not cycle.

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

My washer has filled up with water and then just stopped and wont begin the cycle...


Try manually advancing timer . If washer starts , timer motor is bad or gets stuck , or water level switch is bad and not sending power to timer.

If washer doesn't start ,the lid switch is stuck not sending power to timer or god forbid, timer is shot.

In some models , lid switch controls everything which may be your problem .Try manually operating lid switch or jumping it with jumper wire.Or just replacing. Its' the easiest to fix and most likely problem.

Good luck

Maytag Washer Just Stopped After it Filled With Water (Timer?)


Cant rule out the timer but I suspect first check the lid switch. The timer and other components are fed from the lid switch on most models. Just put the2 wires together and reapply power if it works replace the lid switch. If not you'll have to have a wire diagram to know where to check next, but your water level switch "fill switch" could be at fault. it stops the water valve 1 way and can energize the rest of the circuits the other way. It may not be closing in the "full" direction. Again this switch if so wired will have 3 wires on it.

If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Checkto see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it pluggedin? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch Ifthe lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may notfunction at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housingnear the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or frontof the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need toreplace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse nearthe lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unitwon't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Runs full wash cycle, but there it is still full of water and suds


Amy, there was a service flash for the lid switch on this model. The contacts inside the switch were sporatic which caused; stopping in mid cycle, wet clothes and no drain. You would have to put it in spin and have someone jiggle the wires to the lid switch to verify that this is the problem and not a timer problem. I really think it's a lid switch problem. Your part number for the new, non adjustable switch is 12001908.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804


OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!

MAYTAG LAT9235AAE TOP LOAD WASHER WILL NOT WORK


Pt, Should be a yellow wire from the water level switch according to the diagram I have. See if it has 120V to motor when full. Just take it to ground. Same with the lid switch in closed position, it shows here as yellow, but could be grey, these diagrams are not always accurate. I think you have a level switch or lid switch problem. Check for voltage to the motor when it should be agitating. Catriver..post back.
