Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Maytag Atlantis shut down during rinse cycle.

Maytag Atlantis washer shut down during the rinse cycle last night. I noticed an unusual smell (possibly burning) and it would not restart. Eventually did get it started again in the spin cycle. I probably had it overloaded. Any idea what I may have broken and how to get it fixed? Thanks.

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.

My Maytag washer has no spinning mode while in rinsing cycle. I checked the voltage-it's about 118 to 130 volt consistantly. Please advise.


Our Maytag Atlantis strted having some unusual operation problems and failure to produce clean clothes about 3 - 4 yeras after purchase. The transmission was replaced, no parts costs, reasonable service call labor costs. Has worked good ever since, another 3 years or so.
Call Maytag and they will discuss with you.

Belt squeek during rinse cycle


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
