I got the top off the washer, and now I cannot find any way to open the front panel of this top loading washer. It is the Atlantis MAV9750AWW.

Most don't have a front panel. Just top panel and rear panel.
Did you raise the top panel?
There are clips there that you have to find with a flat knife type tool.

Maytag Atlantis top loader washing machine won't spin out water. it spins but the water doesn't go out. it's only about 5 years old. help please!!!

The drain hose is plugged or kinked or the drain pump is not working. Check and clear the drain hose from any debris that might be causing the water not to be pumped out. After checking and clearing the drain hose and the water is still not pumped out of the washer, check the pump to see if the impeller is good or the pump needs to be replaced. Access to the pump requires the top cover and the front panel to be removed. Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The top cover is attached to the front panel by two clips positioned at about 3 inches from the corners. Use a putty knife and insert the blade into the seam between the top cover and the front panel assembly at the position of the clips.

Push the putty knife blade against the clips, one side at a time while lifting the cover to disengage the clips. Lift the top cover off the front panel then remove the two screws securing the front panel to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet.

Lean the top edge of the front panel away from the cabinet and lift the panel to disengage its bottom from the base clips. Move the front panel away from the cabinet to access the pump.

Disconnect the pump inlet and outlet hoses from the pump then remove the three screws mounting the pump assembly to the base of the washer.

Slide the pump to the rear of the washer to disengage the belt from the pump pulley and pull the pump assembly out of the washer.

Clear the pump inlet and outlet hoses for any debris to ensure water is not blocked from being pumped out of the washer.

Check the impeller. Remove the four screws securing the pump housing to the pump base then lift the housing off the base. Clean the impeller and the pump housing; replace the pump assembly if the impeller is damaged.

To replace the pump, set the pump pulley into the base opening and put the belt on the pulley. Install the mounting screws while holding tension on the belt to keep it on the pulleys.

Connect the pump inlet and outlet hoses and secure it with the clamps.

Position the bottom of the front panel back into the base clips then secure the top to the upper front corner braces of the cabinet with the two securing screws.

Push the top cover down into position to the front panel to complete the procedure.

Note: For Maytag Atlantis MAV8000A, the pump assembly is part number 35-6465.

Drain pump broke on a MAV 5000 AW

To remove the front panel, take a putty knife and push it in the joint between the front and top panel close to the top corners ( both the left and right) . As you carefully push back, you'll be pushing back on the retainer clips that hold the top panel down.
This will get the top panel able to tip back, exposing the top screws to remove the front panel. Slide the front panel upward to release the lower retainers...
Should do it..

Maytag Atlantis Model 6400AEW Dryer bought 2003

On my 2006 Maytag Atlantis the top is held down by 4 screws 2 under the front and 2 on the back.
To remove the 2 on the front you need to remove the screws in the door and remove the door and front panel, than remove the 2 screws. The 2 screws on the back hold a white plastic fastener. After removing the screw, pry the bottom of the plastic fastener with a flat head screwdriver. Than with a very thin screwdriver or a thin pry bar wedge it under the top cover and just pop it off. Take care to not scratch your dryer while prying the plastic piece off.

Good Luck

you don't say which model you have. one version uses two belts accesible by just tipping the machine back. Another version you must remove the front panel, and drop the pump and you'll be able to replace the one belt.

If your timer has a gray rubber ring on it, the timer is in 4 pieces. Pull the top middle part out. Then there's a white locking piece in the center. Once that's out the other 2 pieces will pull out. Note: The photo shows the top cover removed. The locking pin is the white center. RanchMom
