Re: Maytag top loader MAV 8000MWW
If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
No power Lid switch No power
Checkto see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it pluggedin? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?
Ifthe lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may notfunction at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housingnear the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or frontof the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need toreplace it.
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse nearthe lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unitwon't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

i do believe the part number for your washer model number is 22003371and when searching the part number 2605660 none of my 4 parts lookup websites can not find that part number but yet all of them tell it the timer part number for model# MAV6200AWW is part #22003371
Open the control console. Use a voltmeter to test the timer motor. Set the machine to wash. Place the meter leads on the 2 timer motor wires. If you read 120 volts and the timer does not advance,the timer motor is bad. The complete timer will need replacing.
You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.
Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
Mardokenly, start with the door lock assy. It looks like power has to go through the wax motor assy (door lock)then the light before getting to the main control board. With the power off and harness removed from the door lock mechanism it should ohm out at 950 to 1100 ohms at room temp. If this passes the test another area to look would be the timer and control board. If the control board does not see a change in timer inputs after 5 minutes of power to it, it will shut the washer off. Things to check would be loose connections at the timer and control board. They have had a lot of service bullitins and service flashes out on this model. One of which has to do with the loss of the nuetral line from the power cord to the control board. When this happens, of course the washer will shut off. You may want to call Maytag and see if you are covered under these service bullitins. Catriver..post back.
