Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Just hooked up and it won't keep water


I got this washer from my parents who had been using it for a month. It worked fine for them but I'm having a problem.

When I turn it on it starts to fill up with water but the water wont stay in the washer. It just drains when filling up? I don't know whats going on? Any help would be great. Thanks

If you have compression then the first thing you check is for spark. If you have spark then you move on to the fuel system. You will have to pull off hoses at a couple of points to see if gas is at the carb and further along. If it is the carb then a simple carb kit will work.

you will need to check the fans are all switching on when you turn the tv on, it might be one of the fan sensors that has gone bad, the tv wont turn on if it detects that the fans or a single fan is not working. I have not worked on this particular set , but that would be the first place i would look, if you find a fan is not firing up and if you have a multimeter, then check to see if you have a 12v voltage going to the fan, an easy way of rectifying it is to run a wire from one of the other working fans to the positive of the fan that isnt working. This would at least eliminate the fan as the culprit, if the tv starts up normally then the problem lies in why the fan is not receiving power. I ran a tv using this method for over 8 months before it died, from other problems i might add , not the fact i bypassed the fan power circuit.

Sishwasher not used for months. Now motor only

Disassembled dishwasher. Some plastic scraps had shredded and wound itself around the pump impeller axis. It was preventing the motor from turning. Upon removal diswasher again worked fine.

HOTPOINT aquarius WF541G

most likely suspect is the heater. undo wires from heater and see if fault persists. if not, heater is down to earth and will have to be replaced.
another possibility is a leak causing some of the wiring to be wet
