Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Our washing machine fills up with water but does nothing else. I've turned it to spin to see if it would at least spin the water out but it does nothing. The cycle does not continue to move either. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I think that it could possibly be the door switch. When I close the lid slowly, I can hear it click but I'm not sure if it is working. Anyone know how to disable the lid switch or know what else could be wrong with it? Thanks in advanced.

Maytag Atlantis,and I've heard enough nightmarish stories about trying to find service or parts.I'm wondering if it's worth my time to ask,but it stopped in spin cycle one night and now only fills with water and does nothing,timer does not move,no drain,no sound,nothing.It acts if it has no power,that is no electric to anything.I thought Maytag was made in the "USA" but good ole Mexico,this one.Anyway I cannot find diagrams,maintenance books,problem shooting,not even on Maytag website,nothing.HELP. I'm about to recycle it and get a few bucks and not buy Maytag again.

If you haven't used it in a while, The belt may be stuck in place. You will need to lay the machine on the side and turn the pulley with a tool. spray it with some sort of lubricant to help loosen it up.

Thats what happened to mine and it fixed it.

I have a bosch washing machine Maxx WF1200.The machines fills with water than stops. Nothing happens. Also does not spin to release the water. What is the problem?


If the machine heats the water and finishes the cycle without the drum turning it is most likely your motor or what controls it.

See if all the connections are tight; try inter-changing the water pipes. Water should have good pressure at faucet.......

Please check on the water flow to the drum, if the flow is low or if the inlet is choked the water flow in the set time limit can be low and so could trip.
secondly it can be due to problems in the level sensor, try and see if the pressure switch works outside.
Finally check on the program controller unit once again to see the triping. check the door switch for loose connection.

Washing machine fills, but will not agitate, drain or spin


Coupling broken which joins the motor to the gear box. Look and see or listen if the motor is running then if nothing else is working coupling is broke, easy to replace.

coupler or belt is out. whirlpool built machines use a coupler instead of belt. it is behind motor and pump
