Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
My washer suddenley doesn't work. its like there is no power to it. I did one load of wash and worked fine. and tried to add another load but no water or power on it.
Ok, I figured it out, at least my problem. The short answer is that you need to replace the lid switch assembly, maytag mav7000aww part no. 12001908.
To verify you have the same problem as I do, remove the rear cover to the control panel (three philips head screws and two machine bolts, see http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=117917&ModelNum=MAV7000AWW&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=1&Selected=52442&Position=2&mfg=Maytag&Type=&Mark=2 no. 14.) Use a volt meter to verify that you have power coming into the lid switch assembly harness (black wire). Use the volt meter to verify that you have no power coming out of the lid switch assembly harness (red and yellow wires.)
To further verify that you have the same problem as I do, remove the wire harness from the lid switch assembly and use a ohm meter to verify that the switch is not allowing power transmission. In the lid closed position (lid switch depressed), use ohm meter to test line-to-motor and line-to-machine connections.
If you verify that you have no power down-circuit of the lid switch assembly using the two methods above, then you have my problem. In this case, you can purchase the part noted at top for less than $25.
