Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Washer doesn't reliably spin dry clothes

Our washer seems to work fine up to the point when it is supposed to spin dry our laundry. It seems lately that we have to run the washer at least 2 or 3 times through the spin cycle before it actually does what it's supposed to, and the problem seems to be getting worse. I'm guessing that the rotary selector switch may be at fault, but I would appreciate it if anyone can give me a definitive cause / fix to solve our problem since the machine seems to work fine otherwise. Thanks for your help...

More than likely your carbon brushes which are situated in your motor locatable by a single wire on each side of your motor going into a plastic casing that holds the carbon if it doesnt have carbon brushes than it will have a module which is about 4in in length and is a circuit board this will need replacing which in some cases is not cheap at all

Front load MDE2400AZW takes forever to dry stuff. A regular load takes 1 1/2 hrs to dry,but the heat is on, and it seems to work.


Make sure the lint trap in the door is clean. It has a plastic cover that opens. Disconnect the venting at the rear and run a load, if it works you have a restriction in the hose after the dryer or in the wall past the hose.

I just did a load of laundry at my mom's beach house. Second load so far is fine, however, first load seemed to leek from underneath. All water/drainage connections were dry. We moved and cleaned area and...


If all connections were dry, the water may have overflowed the top of the tub during a spin /rinse cycle. That could happen if there was a lot of water (i.e. set for large load) and a small amount of clothes.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Laundry stinks


I find that the dryer does not dry the clothes enough. The washer can take a lot of laundry at one time but the dryer is not able to handle the load. The stink usually comes from a bit of moisture left in the the clothes, especially the towels. Break down your dryer loads or dry them on a timed cycle for a longer time.

Can I make the water level on my whirlpool duet washer higher?


its because of the design of the machine they are water efficient.a front load uses any where from 15 to 18 gals. compared to 40 to 50 gals.for a top load. they also have a higher spin rate than the top loader,therefore making your close dryer and having a less drying time in the dryer.energy efficient too!!

Loud screaming sound during spin cycle


The screaming noise is probably from a dry bearing in the motor, it will probably come and go and shouldnt cause to much problem, they are supposed to be self lubricating but sometime they run dry.
