Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Slow spin cycle, clothes still very damp

My Maytag MAV6000AWW started leaving clothes very damp after they were done. Wife said it seemed like the spin cycle was slow. I checked and yes it is slow, and when I manually stop the cycle, the drum stops suddenly and makes a slight screech.
Are the bearings going bad, transmission locked between gears, or what.
I pulled the front off the machine and ran it through a spin, then shut it off. Small amount of water seen in the pump housing, but nothing blocking the hoses, so I feel it's NOT a problem with the pump or belt.
Please help.

Asko w6021 washer leaves clothes damp and often stops mid cycle


I AM NOT MUCH OF A MECHANIC, BUT I DO KNOW THAT IF WATER DOESN'T SPIN OUT OF THE WASHER, IT COULD BE THAT YOUR BELT IS BROKEN OR YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE MOTOR COUPLING.

Wet clothes after spin cycle


When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Our Maytag Neptune MAH3000 does not advance through the rinse and spin cycles. The problem is sporadic. Sometimes it advances through one or two spin cycles and then stops, sometimes it stops on the first...


Have you cleaned the large drive belt, if it slips it could cause this sort of fault. Motor will stop if it doesn't get a signal from the drum. Just try wiping the drive belt with a damp soapy cloth and then wiping again with a damp non soapy cloth. You will need to remove the back, unplug it from the power before starting any work.

Clothes still damp to wet after spin cycle


You need to clean out your outlet filter; this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain water if the outlet is clogged. And rate me pl, if the solution has worked......
