Maytag Atlantis is dead and full of water
Model Number: MAV7200AWW Brand:
1 - 5 years
I bought a used Maytag Atlantis from a friend. From the beginning it seemed off.
*only certain cycles would work
*The lid switch seem to not engage unless lid slammed hard
*Had problems with the spin cycle
*a loud labored buzzing sound before it would finally enter the spin cycle
Now after noticing a slight burnt smell, more electrical than anything, it's full of water (resulting from a futile attempt to get it to drain the previous water that was left) and dead. The control knob won't turn or "tick" and I can't get to do anything else.
Is it something as simple as the lid switch or does the burning smell indicate bigger problems?
Also any tips on getting the existing water (almost full) out?
Thanks in advance
