Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer
My whirlpool washer agitates but won't spin or drain. the timer was hitting spots where it would buzz for a long time before this started. i don't think the drain is plugged because the pump isn't trying. its as if the timer isn't sending a signal to the next phase (spin or drain). yet, there are a few times i've noticed that agitation stalls until I bump the agiator, as if freeing it. my timer was replaced within the last year which is also troubling.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the transmission in your unit is bad,it has internal gears and the ones involved in the agitation are broke or bad, to replace the transmision is a lengthy process, your best bet is to just scrap it and get a new washer. I don't know if you know this but maytag company is no longer in business. They were purchased by Whirlpool back in November of 2006. One of the reasons is all the poor quality of their appliances. I am a technician that has been doing this for 15 years. The best unit I have seen to date is the Whirlpool Duet. I hardly ever have to work on them. Sorry for the bad news. Hope this helps.

CHECK your stand pipe hasn't fell over (the one the drain hose goes to when emptying)If not,Either the pressure switch is broke or there is a hole or split in the pressure switch rubber hose.This switch stops the water when it reaches required level.

if your washer has a slight rumble noise when on the spin then it is most likely that your bearings are on there way out,what it is is the bearings have grease in them and once the bearings start to go this grease starts to leak into the drum which is what the brown spots are it also leaks at the back around the bearing at the back of your outer drum and also leaks onto the floor this will need fixing by a domestic appliance engineer but it is sometimes cheaper to replace the washing machine

Bubba, before you get into the spin tube, brake or clutch, this sounds more like you have something caught between the basket and tub or you have something jammed in the pump. First check that out and post back. Catriver.
