How to get the spin cycle to work?

Our Maytag Atlantis washer is not spinning the water out of the clothes and it's squeaking when it tries to spin. What could be the problem?

This posting is so old you likely have resolved or given up by now. The noise is likly a dry bearing between the inner and outer tubs.

I had this same problem and have resolved it by replacing the bearing and the seals on both sides of the bearing.

Unless you have esperience at taking things apart and putting them back again and are not afraid then you might regret doing so. If confident go ahead. You might be able to replace the bearing (after packing it good with High Temp Grease). Caution: If the shaft the bearing rotates on has been dry long enough to score up the shaft pretty bad you will have to replace the transmission (in which case it is not worth fixing). Good luck!

My maytag atlantis cycles but wont spin out. It spins slowly then shuts off but leaves wet clothes and water in tub.


First determine whether all the water is pumping out before it goes into spin. If not, check the pump and drain. If its not spinning fast enough with an empty tub check that there isnt any article of clothing caught between the inner and outer tubs or tub top ring. If thats ok check the clutch by turning the main drive pulley CCW. Substantial drag should be felt before the basket overcomes momentum and begins to turn. There is no repair for the clutch on this machine. The transmission must be replaced.

Maytag atlantis washer doesnt spin on spin cycle, also found plastic shavings in clothes, appear to be coming from the top outer edge of the tub, a white plastic trim piece. wash cycle seems to work fine...


There can be several causes, the drum off balance would cause the shavings during spin cycle , balance could be one of the the balancing mechanism failed and not running could be the balance sensor shutting down the spin cycle. You should start by checking the balance shocks .

At times, my washer won't spin all of the water out of the clothes/towels


Sounds like a problem with the spin cycle. So I suggest re-spin cycling your cloths and contact a technician or if you still have a warranty, take it back and say its malfunctioning.

Spin cycle not working like it should


If the washer doesn't reach it's proper spin speed, the clothes may be wet at the end of the cycle. Since you have replaced the belt, it could be that you have a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Check for damage to the pulley and shaft and for free play. Also make sure that there are no clothes or foreign objects caught between the inner and outer tubs or something causing friction on the drive train. Hope this helped.
