Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

My washing machine is a Maytag Atlantis heavy duty, stainless steel. The machine is around 5 years old. Frequently we have to open the lid and distribute the clothes around, otherwise the drum spins out of control, even with little amount of clothing. Can you advice on what is involved to fix the problem please. Is there a drum kit available? Is it possible to get someone to service on Saturdays? thanks Nick

This is a problem with these machiones. its drum rides on a ball and socket setup. with a plastic ring it rides on to cause the resistance when spinning. also centerd with big springs. its a job to replace . i would get about 200.00 to due.

if you use machine a lot then after another few years same thing again. poor design i think.

good luck.

Water will not drain, will not do anything.


I would check the lid switch. That is most likely the problem.

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

Older Maytag Washing Machine - Top Loading "Heavy Duty" model


There is a screw near the base of the agitator. If it is missing replace it with a stainless steel screw. If this is a machine that is older than 25 years, you will have to replace the rubber ring on the agitator shaft.
