Re: servis washing machine

There was a service bullitin on this model concerning the lid switch and this sounds like your problem. Maytag redesigned it because of excessive failures. The new switch kit part number is 12001908. I don't know if you would have any luck contacting Maytag with regards to repairing this for free, but you could check. For reference the bullitin they put out was TCL-0001-b. If you cannot get anywhere with them, it's not a hard fix. We should be able to walk you through it. back

Washing machine won't go thru spin cycle. Lid lock light flashed some at first, now won't come on at all.

Hi there the lid lock switch is faulty and needs to be replaced - cannot be bypassed unfortunately.

Washer won't start. Power is on, pressed power, then pressed permanent press, then water temp, then start. There is a red light on spin cycle and it just beeps and doesn't start.

Hi - if that red led light comes on as you press start - then the display module is faulty - however it's not always the case - often its the motor controller module thats faulty..

Your call - display module first and hope it works or controller.

The manufacturers recommended procedure is to replace the display module (primary) if it still doesnt work then replace the control module (secondary).

It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to or and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...

FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.

If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.

Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
