Maytag Atlantis skips rinse and spin.
Posted 02 May 2012 - 10:39 PM
I own a Maytag Atlantis model MAV7580EWW. The washer is currently going through the normal soak cycle, the the wash cycle, and then it basicaly stays there for the duration of the time. The timer keeps clicking away until it reaches the off position. Once opened you see the clothes were washed, but not rinsed (evident by the soap) nor were they spun. However if you put the timer on the spin cycle it does indeed drain and spin the clothes, if you put it in rinse it will fill the washer with watter then continue washing until timing out. Once it does time out I put it back on spin and it drains and spins the clothes. It seems very peculiar to me.
Any help in diagnostic would be very much apreciated. I have not cracked the machine open yet, however the model number is clearly visible on the top rear of the machine.
Honestly mechanicaly the machine seems to be in tip top condition with very little noise and very very smooth running. I would hate to get rid of it. It also matches the dryer.

I don't really get it. Are you sugesting the timer is broken? If so what is the reason it picks up if I manualy put it in the right place? In either case, I will be dismantling the washing machine and take a peak on whats going on. No sense in ordering parts withought testing them first.
