Maytag atlantis washer

Our washer is approximately 5 years old. the tub is spinning slower during the rinse and spin cycle and the water isn't being pumped out efficiently. we have to put it back on spin cycle to complete the draining of the tub. I think it is the pump, any ideas or solutions you might have would be great.

    Our washer works fine until it reaches the rinse/spin cycle. The machine continues to run (drain the water) but the tub does not spin. I know the tube does not spin because it "tricked" the lid closed switch to see. The water drains out almost completely but our clothes are still VERY wet. Our machine us about 4 years old.

    Sounds exactly like our 5-yr. old maytag atlantis. Is it fixable?

  • Anonymous Nov 27, 2008

    Sounds exactly like mine! Some times I need to run and rerun the spin cycle 3 or 4 times. I've caught a glimpse inside the machine a number of times and sometimes (not always) the tub is rocking back and forth as if its unbalanced. The one time there was only one set of bedsheets in the machine so I know that the unbalancing isn't the issue. I'm ready to cash it in and buy a $250 somethin that will work better than this!



    I will try your advice and see where it gets me.

    I have the same problem

    makes a noise, like it is off balance and I have to spin items 3 or 4 times, sometimes more just to get dry enough to put into dryer, husband checked it, and it is spinning ok, then it goes like it is out of balance, slows down or stops, doesn`t drain well either

Start by checking the belt by tilting the machine back and examining for wear, glazing and cracks, next pull the belt to make sure everything turns. Post back if this looks fine.

Should water back up into the tub upon spin completion on maytag atlantis


No, If water is coming back, the sewer is cloged up or is a big posibility that the washers transmission is not spenning at all. it may sound like is agitating during the wash and spinning during the rinse. To check it, put soap inside the drum if it doesn't get disolved after the cycle is done. The transmission needs to be replace. Is costly you may want to shop for a new one.

Wont spin


Sounds like the transmission seal had failed sometime back and has leaked the lubricant causing the transmission to overheat and now possibly seizing the gears, if this is the case the transmission will have to be replaced. Depending on the age of the washer, (5 years or less) you should contact Maytag to see if they will compensate you by way of furnishing the new transmission for free, but you will be responseable for the labor charge from a tech to do the replacement.
If they will not cover the part, you will probably be better off to replace the washer than to invest in the cost of a new trans and labor.
Good Luck !

Water not filling in tub washer spins,


It sounds as if the timer has failed internally. Spinning on each setting means the motor is not reversing and that reverse function is controlled by the timer itself. It would never fill if it is stuck in spin unless you select rinse and depending on cycle it can inject water in the spin during the final rinse. If your machine does this normally see if it injects water. If it does inject water at that point I am 95 % sure your timer is the problem.

Shreiking spin in rinse cycle


Your pump is probably what's causing the noise . Usually the bearing starting to go out , causing the pump to freeze up , begins with this noise .

White flakes in circular pattern under washer of 7 years. Time to replace?


First we started hearing a grinding sound during the spin cycle. My husband replaced the belt, which was loose and not helping the spinning of the tub any, thus much wetter clothing after spin cycle. The belt gave us another week of use out of the machine and did drain the tub better, but then water started leaking into the tub from the water inlet (or area where water rushes in to fill tub), and was not up to the usual "rush" of water, when filling up. The grinding sound started again during the spin cycle, and so now we are assuming it is the ball bearings or the brakes and perhaps the water pump as well. Estimates for these jobs on the boards seems to run from $400-500.00. The machine is only 7 years old, but after reading so many posts, maybe I should count my blessings that it lasted that long! This was an all mechanical machine, which I loved. Atlantis Maytag, a very sturdy and solid looking machine. Never did really clean that well though. SOLUTION: we are getting a new machine.
