Maytag Atlantis dryer

Stopped working in mid-cycle. Light comes on when door opens, motor seems to want to run but hesitates as if being held. Slight electrical or rubber/chemical smell. Thanks!

    Turned out the lint trap was not replaced (thanks DH) and 3 socks got into the motor. However, the motor was still salvageable so no new motor needed (yet).

Unfortunately the motor now needs to be replaced. New motors cost around $125-$150 and are fairly tricky to install.

My dryer stopped mid drying cycle. The breaker in


Your dryer has an overtemp safety. Called a high limit, it has 2 wires connected to it, and usually is held in place by 1 screw. There will be a couple of them, the one closest to the element will be the bad one. It looks like a suppository, you'll see if you open up the unit yourself. DISCONNECT ALL POWER BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY ELECTRICAL REPAIRS!!!!!!!!!!

Maytag Atlantis 7700 - Noisy agitation/wash cycle from motor


Your drive motor may be fine. Check the water pump that is located in the back behind the small metal door on the left bottom corner and see if thats where your noise/water is coming from. These extraction pumps have bearings casing that gets mangled and locked up. Look right above the flywheel that the belt rides on in the W-pump.

Dryer stopped working mid-cycle.


I presume she pushed the start button again. Can you hear the motor running? If so, it's a broken belt. The door switch can fail anytime. If the dryer started ok later, the motor was overheated. Lighter loads will avoid a lot of problems, and the dryer will probably work better.

Wash cycle will not start


you may have leaned on lid and damaged the lid switch , so the washer thinks the lid is open all the time unit will fill then stop with lid up.
