Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6260AWW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water fills but does not agitate or spin

My Maytag Atlantis fills with water and then doesn't agitate or spin cycle. The unit makes no noise at all. I will position the dial all over the place after the drum has filled up and will get nothing. If I increase the water level size, it will respond to that and then again I get nothing else. Please help. Thanks, Doug

    I suspect the switch since if I drop the lid it will start to fill. How do I get inside to check the switch connections?

Maytag Atlantis Washer makes loud noise only during wash cycle (not spin)

Top Loader? That sounds like a gearbox problem. It is not an easy fix. With that much use and those many years, it is probably time for a new one. A new High Efficiency Front Loader, will save you a fortune in water, electricity and detergent.

Try this forum though if you want to try and get it fixed.

Won't start

if it filled proplerly and won't start now, it sounds like the door switch is broken, there could be something wrong with the rest of the electrical systems, however i would suggest the switch first. If there is a lot of noise like its trying to run, then its probably your transmission.

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.

Water runs through entire cycle until spin mode

Check the plastice hose going to the water level switch. It is pinched, or has a hole in it.
Repair or replace the plastic hose.
