Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Lost power to washing machine

My washer lost power. Was doing a wash cycle and opened lid to add more clothes and it stopped working. Didn't trip circuit breaker at electrical panel. Is there a breaker on the washer or other ideas? My wife thought she may have smelled something burning before it stopped working. Thanks in advance.

When you opened the lid to add clothes, your Maytag sensed a door lock fault and went into protective shutdown.

SOURCE: washer just stopped

I would check the drainpump ans see if there is something jammed inside like a coin or screw,nail etc before doing anything else .Unplug the machine first though . A burning smell will occur with a load of water trying to spin .

Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.

SOURCE: Washer stopped at begin of wash cycle

The problem seems to lie in the rubber backed mat. If the rubber has begun to peel of the mat it often-times get stuck in the drain pump. The best thing to do at this point is to disconnect the electrical cord, open up the machine, drain out the water as best as possible disconnect the power cord to the drain and the hoses. Clean out the drain pump. reassemble. You should be good to go., Unless the drain pump is burned out (left running plugged up too long) if thats the case, replacement of the pump may be neccessary.... Hope this helps...Good luck!.... Bill

SOURCE: Washer stopped during wash cycle, burning smell

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Dryer-Parts/index.aspx Take a look at what a new motor costs for your machine and go from there. Is may not be a motor is could be a belt or a bearing. I rebiult a washer for less then 50 dollars that one did not need a motor just bearings and a belt. I would take the washer apart so you can get an idea of what went wrong and then look at parts to repair it and decide what to do good luck

My top load sampson powerfoam vrt washer will fill up for rinse cycle but then stops will not rinse spin or drain wont even perform the drain test


Hi Teresa, Before you check out the link below read how To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components.(This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.) Once the reset has been completed set the washer to do a small load with no clothes in the washer. See if the washer goes through with the cycle as normal. If the washer performs correctly, then it has been reset and is fixed. If not refer to more troubleshooting techniques and causes of problems below.
If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch.


How To Fix Washing Machine That Is Not Spinning or Draining

Why is my frigidaire washer not spinning?


  1. Stopped Mid-cycle
    • If your Frigidaire washing machine started spinning, but then stopped, verify that the power cord is still connected to the outlet. See if the outlet blew by plugging in a different appliance into the outlet. See if you blew a fuse. A blown fuse usually is either black or has broken wires. Replace the fuse. If you have a circuit breaker instead of a fuse box, reset the circuit breaker if it's been tripped. Check the lid switch, which is located inside the main housing of the washing machine, near the door frame. If the switch is burned out, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer.
    Pump
    • The pump's sole responsibility is to remove water during the spin cycle. If the pump isn't working properly, see if it's clogged with debris or clothing. Use needle-nose pliers to remove these items. Check the pump pulley, which is connected to the pump. This component must move freely for the pump to work. If it won't turn, purchase a new pump pulley since you can't usually fix this component.
    Lid
    • Check the door latch assembly if the door isn't closing correctly. If any of these components are broken, order a new part from a Frigidaire parts dealer. If you do not, the washer won't start spinning since it believes the door isn't closed. Your Frigidaire washing machine won't start the spin cycle until the lid or door is closed. Always close the lid, and remove any items preventing the lid from fully closing. Always close the dispenser drawer.
    Additional Concerns
    • Never over- or under-load your washing machine. Your Frigidaire washer may not enter the spin cycle if the load is too large, since this can damage the washing machine. Remove a few pieces of clothing. If the load is too small, add a few similar items to the washing machine. Check the internal belt, drive motor and motor coupling. If any of these components are broken or very worn, they may not work properly, preventing the washer from entering the spin cycle. Order replacement parts from a parts dealer. Check the tub and basket bearings, and get new ones if the current ones have broken components or are defective.

Beko wm5120...no power even with new fuse


Instructions
  1. Close the lid or door. Washing machines automatically stop when the lid or door is open. Lift the clothing and move it slightly. If the washing machine is overloaded with towels or heavy garments, it might become unbalanced. The washer won't run until the items are adjusted.
  2. High-efficiency machines might stop running when regular detergent is used or too much high-efficiency laundry soap is poured in. If you suspect that the laundry soap is the problem, cancel the cycle and press the "Spin" or "Drain" cycles. Restart the cycle, but do not add more detergent.
  3. Inspect the water outlets. Turn faucets to the left to ensure that both the hot and cold water hoses are open. Tug on the hoses to make sure they are attached and inspect the hoses for thin spots that might be causing leaks. Make sure the hoses aren't kinked. Detach the hoses and run clean water through them to remove clogs.
  4. Is the washer's cord plugged into a grounded outlet? Never use extension cords to power washing machines. Check the circuit box for blown fuses.

My washer stops during cycle ...has to open and shut lid several times to get back to washing...why


You need to replace the "Lid Switch" on the machine. Over time, the contacts in the switch become worn or dirt and lint gets in it and becomes faulty.

My kenmore washer model 110.27802690 will not spin and will not drain the water. the motor will make a humming noise but won't come on. we took all the clothes out and it will now fill up the washer, wash...


Under the lid there should be a small hole with a push down flap and that should be the automatic stop, which can either be a bad switch under the top of the machine or could be a broken trip/ prong on the lid that pushes this button when the lid is dropped. When the machine reaches it's spin cycle time leave it turned on and raise the lid push down on this flap with something careful to keep hands out of the washers tub and see if it works then!

Kenmore washer machine cylce stopped in mid cycle


If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

  • No power
  • Lid switch

No power
Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?


Lid switch
If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
 check these, if still the problem persists then let me know for further help.
