Sits Pretty Doing Nothing,ARG!

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.

My Maytag Atlantis has done the same thing on occasion. Mine has started screeching loudly during agitation cycle and has a hot or electrical smell, and then just stops and I can't get it to start back. .I have discovered it may be due to overloading it. I unplugged it and removed all the clothes and dipped out the water, and reached inside and rotated the drum by hand, and after letting it sit for a while to cool off tried it again and it started working.

Motor sounds terrible during spin cycle, grinding sound.

Your problem may be the water pump. Contact an appliance service company.

My maytag atlantis mav6520aww just stopping working. It fills at the correct water level and then just stops nothing else, Help!!! Can't determine if the motor or the belt both looks fine.

The possible problem here is the plastic gearing that connects the transmission to the motor to start the agitation has broken and will need to be replaced. If you forward the machine and it drains and fills properly then that will be you problem. This peice connects the motor as I said above to the transmission to start the cycle. This part sits between the motor and the tub itself and is a monster to replace yourself however, it shouldnt cost an arm and leg to have an appliance tech replace it.

Hope this helped

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...

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.

Replacing Timer on Maytag Atlantis Dryer

Call a local appliance shop and ask about it. Maytag is pretty common and available. The timer will be about 75 dollars. It could be more depending on what all you have on it. It is pretty easy to replace once you get to it. Let me know how this turns out.

How to get the spin cycle to work?

This posting is so old you likely have resolved or given up by now. The noise is likly a dry bearing between the inner and outer tubs.

I had this same problem and have resolved it by replacing the bearing and the seals on both sides of the bearing.

Unless you have esperience at taking things apart and putting them back again and are not afraid then you might regret doing so. If confident go ahead. You might be able to replace the bearing (after packing it good with High Temp Grease). Caution: If the shaft the bearing rotates on has been dry long enough to score up the shaft pretty bad you will have to replace the transmission (in which case it is not worth fixing). Good luck!

Fills with water than nothing!

Most likely it's the lid switch, part number 22003804.
Remove the back of the console to gain access.
