Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

Whinning noise


if your unit sounds like a jet plane, your tub seal and bearing must be changed. You would need tohave a service company do it. There are special tools rewuired that cost upwards of 125.00( just for the spanner wrench) the labor ranges from 110-145.00

I have a foul smell comming from my washer I want to try to take off the agitator and clean it How? :)


It depends on what model Maytag washer you have. If you have an Atlantis or Performa model Maytag you remove the agitator by, first, pulling the agitator cap and softener dispenser off. Locate the bolt on the center post and and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. If this is a Dependable Care model Maytag, there's a 1/4 inch screw located on the SIDE of the agitator about 3 quarters of the way down. Locate this screw and loosen. The agitator will pull straight up to remove. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Atlantis shut down during rinse cycle.


Contacted a local repair shop. They told me that if I got it spinning again, the motor was most likely ok. It is protected by a thermal switch that turns it off when it begins to overheat. The smell was to be expected as it was overheating; the difficutly restarting was because it hadn't cooled off enough yet. We have now used it a few times for small loads. Still getting a smell, but the wash cycle is completing ok.
