SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid

The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.

SOURCE: 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.

My maytag atlantis will fill but now wont run or drain. If it is the lid switch how do I fix it?


If it is a lid switch, you replace it, however I suggest a continuity test with a Volt/Ohm meter. The switch needs to be able to open and close, electrically.

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.

I have a Maytag MAV6300AWW, it does not spin the clothes dry. It works fine otherwise. Any idea what the problem is. I saw an answer but it must be for another model. My model appears not to have carbon...


The plastic pulley is worn out typically at the bottom- most common issue. It needs to be replaced. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
