Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
I run a full cycle and the washer is still full of water and suds. When I manually turn the knob to spin, the washer empties. How do I fix it? The washer is 6 years old and I use it almost every day. Thanks. Amy
Amy, there was a service flash for the lid switch on this model. The contacts inside the switch were sporatic which caused; stopping in mid cycle, wet clothes and no drain. You would have to put it in spin and have someone jiggle the wires to the lid switch to verify that this is the problem and not a timer problem. I really think it's a lid switch problem. Your part number for the new, non adjustable switch is 12001908.

The Sd code on most Kenmore Elite HE washers indicates a suds lock (usually caused by excessive suds do to overuse of detergent). Check for the presence of excessive suds in the washer. If you see a lot of foam, the code is likely caused by this problem. You will likely be able to drain the washer and spin out the clothes once the suds dissipate. Run an empty cycle with 1 cup of liquid chlorine bleach through the washer to help rinse out suds residue. If you see foam emerging during the empty cycle, you may need to repeat this process. You can also use Washer Magic or AFFRESH to help clean suds residue out of the washer. These products are available at your local Sears store or the grocery store. Make sure that you are using HE (High Efficiency) detergent in the appropriate quantity. You may need as little as a tablespoon of detergent in a high efficiency washer due to the low water level. You may need even less for a while since the clothes will likely have detergent still dissolved in the fibers that will emerge during subsequent wash cycles.
There are many different models of Kenmore Elite HE washers. If you do not see any apparent problem with excessive suds or need more help, resubmit your question with additional details and the full model number of your Kenmore Elite HE washer.
