Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6260AWW Top Load Washer
I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6260AWW and the washer won't do anything but fill. After filling I can hear a slight humming sound, then i start to smell a burning smell. Please help.
It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.
