Top 20 Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer - Page 6 Questions & Answers


Yes i too have problem with that and i am a appliance tech and have replaced 100's of thrust bearing kits. What you need to do is use a screwdriver and place it opposite of where your going to install the E clip and pull the transmission shaft down for a bit more room,it takes me as much as a hour doing this sometimes but endure and eventually it will go on!

Good luck,
Gene

HI,
The lid switch has a in circuit fuse within the case, this can cause a total shut down. As for the timer, this is possible too, but I would lean toward the lid switch first.

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

For replacement of bearings check for tips on this visual link:

Hi,

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Start the investigation by adjusting the balance ;-0)

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly!
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

check the drive belts underneath the machine, if they look worn then replace them with new. It is important that they're in good condition.

Being a top loader it is to be confirmed if the leak is from the seal which is in the top section Normally the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occurs. Removing and Cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there is gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Check for tips on the link below to identify parts and removal:

First thing to check is the lid switch and make sure it is working and not out of adjustment, if the switch is working then there must be a blockage in the pump or the drain line, if none then your pressure switch could also be bad. Look at the lid switch and use a pen or small screwdriver to depress the switch till it clicks and see if it starts spinning. You can also jumper the switch if your not sure it is working to make sure there is a complete circuit. Once the switch has been eleminated then look at the drain and pump. Let me know were your at on this and I can lead you furthur if needed.

The washer was made from 2000 to 2001

If it is a lid switch, you replace it, however I suggest a continuity test with a Volt/Ohm meter. The switch needs to be able to open and close, electrically.

Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe or clogged/bad drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then you'll need to clean the drain pump completely, if the issue is still there after doing all this then the drain pump should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

FixYa is sorry but this Forum does not normally supply parts, part numbers, prices or other details direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web. Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained on many makes and models, probably over many years ;-0)

Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
