Maytag Atlantis washing machine does not rinse, spin or drain


You need to make sure that the switch on the door/lid is making a connection. If the lid is not closing completely, clear whatever is not letting it close. However, if it's closing but still not working you may need to replace the switch. I have had them go bad an not make a connection when the lid closes.

Check the lid switch. Many washers will not agitate if the lid switch is broken.

Will not start wash cycle


Sound like the lid switch has went out , you should hear it click when the lid is close to an inch of being closed , they are un-expensive and easy to replace and they go out often from use. Easy to find online with your real model number located under the lid.

The washer with the grind noise is a main bearing going out and may be covered under warr. through maytag.
