I have a maytag atlantis washer it will fill with water but then it won't do anything. what could it be?


This problem can be caused by a variety of malfunctions, or failures however the most likely culprit is the lid switch. The lid switch is part #3 shown in the following diagram. The switch mounts at the rear of the chassis top part #1 with screws part #12.

Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 - The machine buzzed and stopped. Now it wont run. Dont think its the lid switch


does it fill with water?
Does it not do anything after it fills?
If this is the case than it is most definitely the lid switch.
I recently had the exact same problem. Easy fix if you are handy.
Remove back of control panel to access the mounting screws. this will give you hand access to the lid switch. Try manually activating it after letting it fill. Replace switch or repair if able.
Good luck

Need to replace Lid Switch for Maytag Atlantis 2002 Washer


Hello, I can help you.


Let me explain to you how the Maytag washer lid switch works.
The lid switch is located on the controls panel, and is activated by opening and closing the washer door. The purpose of the lid switch is to prevent the washer from working with the door open.


It is a safety device to prevent the user from sticking their hands inside of the washer while the washer is agitating or spinning.


When the washer lid switch stops working, the result could be that the washer won't wash, drain, spin and in some cases the washer will not work at all.

You will need a multimeter to check the internal contacts on the washer lid switch.


You will also need to use the wiring schematic to see what contact should be close when the lid switch supposed to be on.


You will need to remember that the Maytag washer lid switch is one of the first parts that you will need to check, when the washer don't want to start filling, agitating, draining or spinning.
