    I failed to see the model number on your post, I am sorry for that. Yes, if indeed it is the belt, you can fix it. The belt is a maytag specific so a generic belt will not work. I have found a belt in 9 US warehouses in multiple quantities for 21.87 before shipping. If you would like more information, please e-mail me at and I'll be happy to assist you.

Maytag Atlantis washer. Washer makes noise that approaches grinding, and the agitator doesn't spin. Rather, isn't connected to the motor. Spins semi-freely by hand, with a rough motion and noise

Your unit is gear driven and is contained in a mechanism enclosure.The roughness your feeling when turning it are the worn-out gears.One cause is it might have ran out or dried out of gear lubricant.The motor drives a belt to run the gears so the motors are running fine.Your gear box is the problem.

My maytag atlantis mav6520aww just stopping working. It fills at the correct water level and then just stops nothing else, Help!!! Can't determine if the motor or the belt both looks fine.

The possible problem here is the plastic gearing that connects the transmission to the motor to start the agitation has broken and will need to be replaced. If you forward the machine and it drains and fills properly then that will be you problem. This peice connects the motor as I said above to the transmission to start the cycle. This part sits between the motor and the tub itself and is a monster to replace yourself however, it shouldnt cost an arm and leg to have an appliance tech replace it.

Hope this helped

Dryer belt snapped bought new one and will not reach the pulley by a 1/2 inch this is a maytag dryer thought these belts were all the same length are they not ....

make sure the belt is in the groove on back of drum for belt then run belt from left side of drum over and around pulley on motor shaft going clockwise then continue around pulley and run belt toward belt tension pulley the one with the spring on it go counterclockwise around it at this point you will have to pull up on tension pulley to get belt on then realease that should take care of it ed
