Washer stops hard then restarts in spin cycle (video)
« on: September 26, 2015, 12:18:12 PM »

I have a Maytag Atlantis 6200.

In the spin cycle, it stops hard, makes a rough squeek, and restarts again.

Does anyone know what this problem may be? Video above.

Sincerely appreciate any help.

Something seems like it is catching either the spin basket or the transmission....

Make sure you don't have a nail or something in the basket that catches on the tub in the spin. Could possibly be the thrust bearing. The trans locks up in the spin so it shouldn't be in the trans. Nail in the basket is my bet. There is a remote chance the motor is losing power for a second (bad electrical connection somewhere) but I couldn't hear that.
