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.
The drain hose is plugged or kinked or the drain pump is not working. Check and clear the drain hose from any debris that might be causing the water not to be pumped out. After checking and clearing the drain hose and the water is still not pumped out of the washer, check the pump to see if the impeller is good or the pump needs to be replaced. Access to the pump requires the top cover and the front panel to be removed. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.
The top cover is attached to the front panel by two clips positioned at about 3 inches from the corners. Use a putty knife and insert the blade into the seam between the top cover and the front panel assembly at the position of the clips.
Push the putty knife blade against the clips, one side at a time while lifting the cover to disengage the clips. Lift the top cover off the front panel then remove the two screws securing the front panel to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet.
Lean the top edge of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift the panel to disengage its bottom from the base clips. Move the front panel away from the cabinet to access the pump.
Disconnect the pump inlet and outlet hoses from the pump then remove the three screws mounting the pump assembly to the base of the washer.
Slide the pump to the rear of the washer to disengage the belt from the pump pulley and pull the pump assembly out of the washer.
Clear the pump inlet and outlet hoses for any debris to ensure water is not blocked from being pumped out of the washer.
Check the impeller. Remove the four screws securing the pump housing to the pump base then lift the housing off the base. Clean the impeller and the pump housing; replace the pump assembly if the impeller is damaged.
To replace the pump, set the pump pulley into the base opening and put the belt on the pulley. Install the mounting screws while holding tension on the belt to keep it on the pulleys.
Connect the pump inlet and outlet hoses and secure it with the clamps.
Position the bottom of the front panel back into the base clips then secure the top to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet with the two securing screws.
Push the top cover down into position to the front panel to complete the procedure.
Note: For Maytag Atlantis MAV8000A, the pump assembly is part number 35-6465.
Put in your model number. I then go to would Sears Parts Direct with your model number and search for your replacement. I would then put that p/n in the Apppliancezone.com price comparsion search engine. AZ is my choice. Good luck....Rich
Your water hoses actually connect directly to the back of the solenoid valves. If you remove the top of the machine by prying it up with a large screwdriver then tilt it up and out of the way, you will see the valves. They are simple to change. Disconnect the hoses and un-plug the two small spade connectors in the valve bodies you can remove the screw. That's pretty much it. Hope this helps. Good luck.
I would check the water valves or the water lines. If the water valve is leaking, the water could be running out and following down the cabinet then in to the tub, or the water valve water line that leads right in to the tub there for leaving a water build up.
Mine the same concern, I took it apart and found the thermo fuse in the motor had a bad terminal. Maytag parts man said you must get a new motor even though the fuse has a part # on it and is easy to change. I made temporary repairs until I find a fuse from a used parts machine. Scott
Your water inlet valve is probably leaking by. If the water pressure is too, or if there is sediment build inside the valve, sometimes the solenoids will not close properly. Try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. If not, I would recommend replacing it. Depending on which valve you have, repairclinic.com has two listed for this model washer for $20 to $30. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further assistance.
turn off the water and remove the hoses from both the wall and from the back of the machine. check the screens inside of the machines water valve, they are probably clogged. do the same for the hose screens on the other end. replace the hose screens at the wall end and remove the screens from inside the machine. replace hoses and turn the water on and you should be good to go
