Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag Atlantis MAV6200 fills but doesn't do anything afterwards

It fills, but nothing happens. I've been lifting the lid and letting it bang back down and it starts and completes the cycle...but after a few months of that, now it doesn't work at all.
Timer? Lid switch? I want to fix it but am not sure where to start, thanks!

    I have exactly the same problem...Where do I start?

    Same issue for me. It used to be that I could bang the lid down and it would work. It doesn't work anymore. I think it may be the lid switch assembly but I'm not sure. Any help would be great!

    My Maytag is filling up, then stops. Slamming the lid a few times will usually start it. Iv'e checked the Lid Switch and replaced it but the problem still continues.

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

My Maytag model # LAT8504AAE WILL NOT do anything


check your lid switch you should hear it click when you open and close the lid. take off the screws to the back of the console 3 philips and 2 1/4in screws, I think, anyway when you get it open the lid switch is the white box that is kinda set into the frame . remove it and push it manually. let me know what you find good luck.

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.

the timer might be broke, well let me explain more the prongs on the back of the timer might not be making contact so the washer will not start.

Fills with water than nothing!


Most likely it's the lid switch, part number 22003804.
Remove the back of the console to gain access.

Washer won't work... Period


the lid switch on the washer went bad. with out the lid switch working the washer cant do anything. its there as a safety to stop the washer when the lid is raise but when it goes bad it doesnt know if the lid is down or not so the washer wont come on
