For saftey the lid lock and lid down switch must be activated before the machine can advance to the next cycle. This has been the sequence for all top loaders..

Check the switch for the lid it is likely defective.

Make sure that the power is removed.

Simple repair by a qualified technician.

Hope this helps?

We had the same problem with our Maytag Centenial Washer. I simply removed the Auto Fill Sensor, cleaned the contacts with Deoxit contact cleaner and problem solved. All was done in less than 20 minutes.

The softener dispenser is supposed to get flushed during the cycle to prevent clogging. The flushing may not be happening in your machine and some residue could be clogging the discharge.

I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

Believe you are on right track would try door lock switch first easier to replace and most likely cause.

I would suggest that as it is a new unit , it is covered by warranty so why don't you call the service agent for a warranty inspection and fix rather than loosing your cool
there is nothing you can do while it is under warranty as any fix by other than authorized service persons will void the warranty

Dear Ed,
To save some money and effort, get an electric meter and check to wires to the water mixer to see if the electricity is coming to the mixer when you tell it to use the "hot".
Then, check the filter screen either in the hot water hose (found on either end) or the hot water connection in the mixing valve.
They can plug up with sediment preventing water flow.
Finally, you can change the mixing valve it you are sure the electricity is coming to it during the hot cycle, and you are sure the water is flowing freely out of the hot water hose.
God bless your efforts.
