Re: poor extraction

Check the drain pump filter and remove the drain hose where it attatches to the plumbing under the sink/tub and look for any blockage in the drain spigot. Also you can remove the drum to pump hose and check that for any blockage. Try to turn the pump impellar by had/finger and it should turn freely. If it doesn't turn freely, the pump is seized and has to be replaced.

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.

My maytag atlantis washing machine is working fine except it is not letting the water in, I have to do it manually, thank you Therese

You will need to replace the water valve. If you go to and look at part #2. This is the part you will need. You can access it from the rear of the unit. You can also order the part for this site. Good luck

Mav7000 spins but does not extract well. Clothes remain wet

wet as in standing water left in tub, or wet as in extra drippy???
standing water would be bad or pluged pump, drippy would be bad belt, pulley or tensioner assembly..
also if pump turns hard or has seized, the seal/bearing may have seized, causing a slowdown in spin speed besides burning the belt, leaking, and making a mess..
best of luck,

Maytag Atlantis 7700 - Noisy agitation/wash cycle from motor

Your drive motor may be fine. Check the water pump that is located in the back behind the small metal door on the left bottom corner and see if thats where your noise/water is coming from. These extraction pumps have bearings casing that gets mangled and locked up. Look right above the flywheel that the belt rides on in the W-pump.
