Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6260AWW Top Load Washer
I have a 3-4 year old maytag atlantis washer. Sounds like the bearings are out.....terrible squeaking sound during spin cycle....will not completely wring out clothes......still wet,though water drains from tub. Will try to look for oil (transmission) under machine. Is this worth the trouble or should I just look for new machine?
I found the crazy sound where comes from, it was an aluminum ring in the drain pump.
First of all, I took out the belt under the bottom, checked moter to run itself, it was fine, so, I suspected some waste in somewhere, it was lucky I disassembled the drain pump first, no waste in the drain pump, but I saw a ring that was cut under the pump (seems should be connected), when I try to spin the pump wheel by hand it is broken because of the ring.
I ordered the entire drain pump on the website, the cost $74 + delivery fee, I recognized Maytag re-designed the drain pump due to the ring ( new pump does not have the ring anymore). Now the washer works fine like new.

If you are a good DYI'er you can find the parts here http://www.repairclinic.com/0003.asp you'll need a couple of hours set aside and maybe a few beers for after. If you are not going to fix it yourself the labor costs and parts would come
to just about the price of a new one. Hope this helps.
