    Similar issue with Maytag Atlantis. Fine shavings of rubber from belt below main pulley. Took off front panel and cleaned up motor / transmission unit. Drive motor seems to jump around as it should but when it's done spinning - instant stop and squeak!~ No slow release just a crashing grit and knashing of teeth. Still washes just fine but impending dooms lies ahead. It's future is bleak. Sounds like this is a somewhat common issue. Anyone know the cause and preferably the solution. I imagine this will just end up giving me a good reason to go with a hi efficiency unit before I waste too much time and effort.

Washer makes loud grinding noise during agitation and does not agitate - it is a maytag atlantis.... fix or replace?


I suspect the thrust bearing kit is bad. This comes with great instructions and is easily replaced. I would recommend changing this before replacing the machine. You are not out much if it does not work, but I am confident you will get it going by replacing this! This is a VERY common problem with these washers and the new kit has been redesigned.

Washer make a loud squeak when the spinning stops


its the brake, just as long as it stops, dont worry about it, made a web page that has pics on how to replace the spin bearing on the maytag atlantis washer, after searching the net on how to, finding the manual, not explanatory, i decided to make this a simple 1 page web site, with lots of pictures, i hope this can help someone else in doing this job. since it would cost too much money for a repairman to do the job, better to buy a new one instead, i tackled the job. since it basically takes apart the whole machine, it might help others even if they dont have the spin bearing problem but other parts to replace,
