Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer

I'm working on a Maytag Atlantis Model #MAV6451AWW. It went into a spin and started smoking. I've took off the belt but it looks ok except maybe for a ltille slippage mark. What else could it be?

Hello,

It seems as though the drum is stuck or at least starting to get tight,can you turn the drum and motor freely by hand.

Maytag mav6451aww squeals loudly during spin cycle


The squeal you here is from the drain pump going out. I have replaced so many of these it's not funny. The new pumps are redesigned. All you need to do is remove the belt from the bottom, open the access panel on the rear left side (as you look at from the rear), remove the three bolts and pull the pump out. put the new one on in the reverse order. Here is the new pump.

Maytag washer model MAV6451AWW - water does not shut off when filling. This started happening after I replaced the main control knob (knob works ok now) could I have loosened another connection which...


Hi,

This problem is caused by a faulty water level switch.

It is a diaphragm like device with a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub.
As the water level increases, pressure increases on the air in the tube. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to turn off the water and signals the timer to start the agitate cycle.
Look for any obstruction or defect in the tube. The switch can be checked for continuity with a multimeter. If it has no continuity the switch is defective..

Please leave me comment, if you need further assistance

Burning smell and smoke


Sounds like the belt has burnt off. You can check this by tilting the machine back and looking under it. Sometimes the belt gets hard and just starts to slip, then it will smoke and burn off. If this is the case, Just replace the belt and this will fix it.

I am also expiriencing the same situation.
I took a look at the machine and it appears to be in good working order.
But the belt does appear to be in need of replacing. I have ordered one and should find out everything will be back to normal once it is installed.
The worn belt would explain a lot.
- Light load are fine due to the lack of power needed to spin the contents.
- Heavy loads need the maximum amount of power it can get to spin.
But does not because the belt is slipping further into pulley grooves and is probably partially slipping, due to the wear.

Maytag washer will not spin


If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.
