    I READ YOUR SUGGESTION ABOUT THE TIMER. WHEN I LOOK UNDER THE WASHING MACHINE AND START THE RINSE / SPIN CYCLE, I CAN SEE THE MOTOR TURNING AND THE BELT ROTATING THE PUMP AND THE TRANSMISSION. BUT THE INNER TUB WON'T MOVE, EVEN WHEN I TURN IT BY HAND. I REMOVE THE AGITATOR, THINKING THERE COULD BE A SOCK OR SOMETHING STUCK UNDER, BUT FOUND NOTHING.

I suggest testing theServicing the Timer

Most washing machine timers are digital or mechanical. The timer controls most of the operations of the washer: water level, tub filling and emptying, length of cycles, and cycle setting sequences. For this reason, any repairs to the timer should be made by a professional service person. However, there are a couple of checks you can make when you suspect the timer is faulty -- you may be able to install a new timer yourself.

Step 1: Unplug the washer. To access the timer, remove the control knobs and the panel that covers the controls. This may be a front panel, or access may be through a panel at the back of the unit. Carefully examine the wires that connect the timer to the other parts of the washer. If the wires are loose or disconnected, try pushing them into position; they usually fit into their terminals like plugs. Use long-nosed pliers to avoid breaking the wire connections -- never pull a wire by hand.

Step 2: To test the timer, use a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the power leads to the timer and clip one probe of the VOM to each lead. The VOM should read zero if the timer is working. Since the timer is a multiple switch, turn it through its cycle and test each pair of terminals in turn. The meter should read zero at all of these points. If one or more readings are above zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 3: To replace the timer, unscrew and disconnect the old one. Install a new timer made specifically for the washing machine. If there are many wires on the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one as you work. Disconnect the old wires one at a time, connecting each corresponding new wire as you work, to make sure the connections are properly made. Or, draw a diagram showing the connections before removing the old timer. After all the wires are connected, check the connections again for correctness and screw the timer assembly into place.

    Tub agitator bearings will probably have to be replaced. Can you move it freely by hand?

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6200AWW Washer agitates and spins. Water sometimes empties. Pump is fine spins freely and the impeller is fine. Could it be the belt ?


You will need to check for an article of clothing stuck between the basket and tub that may be partially blocking the drain hole.

Washer will spin but won't agitate and it "puts the brakes on" when finished spinning


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.This unit spins in one direction for spin and the other for agitate. If its not agitating and the motor is running then the trans failed. Some of these have a ten year trans and labor warranty. Go to maytag site and put in your model and serial and check the warranty.And the brakes on this unit are pretty quick to stop.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Need to replace Lid Switch for Maytag Atlantis 2002 Washer


Hello, I can help you.


Let me explain to you how the Maytag washer lid switch works.
The lid switch is located on the controls panel, and is activated by opening and closing the washer door. The purpose of the lid switch is to prevent the washer from working with the door open.


It is a safety device to prevent the user from sticking their hands inside of the washer while the washer is agitating or spinning.


When the washer lid switch stops working, the result could be that the washer won't wash, drain, spin and in some cases the washer will not work at all.

You will need a multimeter to check the internal contacts on the washer lid switch.


You will also need to use the wiring schematic to see what contact should be close when the lid switch supposed to be on.


You will need to remember that the Maytag washer lid switch is one of the first parts that you will need to check, when the washer don't want to start filling, agitating, draining or spinning.

My maytag washer mav9501eww does not spin, but it drains and it does agitate


Not sure if this will help, but I had the exact same problem on a Maytag top loader. With the machine powered off, spin the wash drum clockwise with your hands. It should be very loose initially and then will tighten up. Unfortunately I don't know the exact mechanism that makes this work, but it did work for mine.

I hope this helps...good luck!

Yes there is a small motor just like in most wall clocks the gears strip or the gear bushing slips and refuses to advance the dial.
you have to replace the whole timer unless you know MacGyver microsurgery
