Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Washing machine problem

Hey Bugjuice,
Thanks for responding to my question. Just to be more specific, the washing machine is shared by 6 people in our house and when it was my turn to use it I lifted to top loading lid and found water already filled in the tank, but the controls would not respond to anything. The water in the tank was dirty so I'm guessing the last person to use it just pulled their laundry out when the washer cut out on them half way through the wash maybe?
I don't know what happened, no one is owning up to it and I'm the only idiot who would try and lift a finger in this place. Anyways, the washer is not reponding to any dial settings but there is full power at the outlet and it's still filled to the top with dirty water. Do you think it's still the Lid switch?

I would also think it is a lid switch although this sounds like a pump is freezing up the works, can you hear a hum when you pull out the dial? If you can I would pop the access panel on the back and pull the dial out watching the motor to see if it pulls to one side.

Why does my whirlpool dish washer take in water and then after 30 seconds just drains the water?

Most new dishwashers will try to heat the water after filling, if the heater doesn't respond, can't sense the temp, or the wash motor doesn't respond to a full tub, the control will abort the wash cycle and drain out... What is the model number? I can get more specific.

Frigidaire affinity model# FAFW4011LW0. Close front load door, press start, door locks, but the sensor indicator light is out. Goes to washing load for bout 30 seconds, shuts off. How to repair?

Hey Johnnie, thanks for your inquiry!
Based off what you have described the Frigidaire washer will run for about 30 seconds and then cut off. This could be a possible issue within your control panel or a wiring harness. I would suggest performing a reset on your washer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes. I have included a copy of a parts schematic for your washer to further assist you. If you need additional help please respond back and I would be happy to help. -Matt

How can I get a shorter wash on the Logixx7. Every wash is lasting at least 3hrs!!!!!!!!.

Hi dear,
I do not know what type or model of your washer but those LOGIXX series should have a INTENSIVE wash button. Make sure that button not active when you setting your program by default and you are not over loading your machine. You need to use specific program for specific wash load. Example: Let's say your machine has 7Kg dry weight wash capacity. That's indication for Cotton Fabric Only. Your machine able to wash 7Kg Cotton fabric but it can not able to wash 7Kg WOOL, Dedicates, Jeans etc. Refer your machine's user manual. I hope that helps. Thanks.

It sound that your problem is cause the water level switch. The level switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help,you should replace the level switch unit. Good luck !
