Appliance: Maytag Washer, Atlantis MAV7200AWW
My Repair & Advice
After listening to a few videos, it sounded like the drain pump had gone bad. I watched a few youtube videos to figure out how to remove the front panel, since there was no access panel on my Maytag Atlantis MAV7200AWW. I removed the drain pump and spun it and heard a grinding noise so I figured that was the problem. The t/w a pro person at Appliance Parts ran down the correct part and I ordered it. When it arrived (next day) I installed it, replaced the clamps with radiator hose clamps, put front panel and belt back on and the machine ran like a charm. Only caveat was that I had a heck of time getting the belt back on the three drums. Best way was to put it on the smaller drums, then keep working it until you get it around the center drum... in other words, exactly the way you take it off. That and prayer, got the belt back on.
