Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
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.
