Pull the unit forwardand lean it back about 45 degrees. You'll have to play with it a bit, but once it's far enough out, it will lean back without you having to hold it. Remove and inspect the belt(s) are they in good condition? Next, check the pulleys (wheels) underneath. Do they turn? One is for your pump, one is for your transmission and one is for the motor. (in case one doesn't turn, you'll know what portion needs to be worked on). Also check the track on your pulley the belt sits in. Is it dammaged or worn?

Had the same problem with mine. Check for a thin washer ate the bottom of the transmission rubbing against the pulley. If it is the the transmission will have to be replaced.

Maytag washer tub will not spin.


There is a clutch assembly under the tub that controls the tub and the agitator. It sounds like the problem is with that.

Clothes are sooaking wet when cycle finishes and they smell bad


The wetness is due to the spin cycle either not working properly or not being allowed to finish. For the smell, with the washer empty, run a cycle on hot/whites with bleach only, after the first cycle drains, open the washer and add more bleach directly into the washer.

My washer makes a loud noise during a normal wash cycle.


If it is a belt driven machine, then there's the smell. Lean it back a little, enough to fit a paint can under 1 corner and you can feel the belt right on the bottom. Feel for cracks, flat spots or a lot of black dust. Remove belt and make sure everything that it goes around spins free.

Loud sounds coming from the washer on spin cycle


That is a characteristic of bearings gone bad. You should look into replacing the bearings.

Front load washer doesn't spin


My Maytag® Neptune® washer filled with water, but it won't spin or drain-what now?

Start by making sure the machine is plugged into a live (working) electrical outlet. Then check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if necessary (or check the fuse if you have a fuse box).

Next, inspect the drain hoses and remove any kinks. Take a look at the drain, too - if it's clogged, call your usual drain service person.

Then close the washer door and firmly press the START/STOP button. In a few moments, after the door locks, the washer should begin to spin. (For your safety, the washer will not tumble or spin unless the door is closed and locked.)

If this doesn't work, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900 for toll-free assistance and service scheduling if necessary.

Maytag Atlantis shut down during rinse cycle.


Contacted a local repair shop. They told me that if I got it spinning again, the motor was most likely ok. It is protected by a thermal switch that turns it off when it begins to overheat. The smell was to be expected as it was overheating; the difficutly restarting was because it hadn't cooled off enough yet. We have now used it a few times for small loads. Still getting a smell, but the wash cycle is completing ok.
