Draining problem;
About the noise. If stumbles on the wash cycle and no noise occurs, is transmission problem. If the noise is present all the time the coupler that is located between the transmission and motor needs to be replace!

I can smell rubber burning and the washer no longer works. It will not turn-on at all.


Handyman here -
If it sounds like it turns on, but doesn't move then it could be a drive belt or the transmission.
If it doesn't sound like its turning on, then its probably the computer board.

From the 'burning rubber' smell, I would bet on a belt.
Good luck!

Washer won't do anything but fill.


It is very likely that the motor has burned out. What happens is that the water solenoid allows water to fill to a certain point where a fill sensor stops it. The program then moves on to activate the motor which will agitate the wash. So when power is supplied to the motor, it tries to start, overheats because of a break down of insulation in the windings, and you smell burning. Replace the motor.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAVT754EWW machine and there is a black soot like substance being left on the floor under the washer. It smells like rubber - do I need to replace the belt and if so, how do I do...


this black soot like substance is the motor carbon brush dust. i would get the motor brushes replaced and clean off all the dust from the pulleys and also replace the belt as it has been slipping on the dust.

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.

Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.
