Question about Kenmore 24032\24036 Top Load Washer

Kenmore series 800 lid switch

It seems like the lid switch is the problem, but I am not sure how to change the switch. My wife said she was having to slam the lid for the washer to come on. Of course she told me this after it would not come on anymore. I cannot seem to figure out how to access the switch or any other parts for that matter.

Have to slam the lid so that the washer will start.


It is a faulty switch about to go bad that interupts the signal for safety. Repair Clinic.com sells them. Enter the make and model number then order it. Easy to change out ususally.

Lid lock broken can I overide?


Washer not starting Cycle:
I would have to slam the washer lid before the washer recognized the lid was shut.
What I did to fix:
1. Ref the link below for Schematics
http://blog.kennyluong.com/Tricking-A-Maytag-Bravos-Washer/
2. Looking at the Lid Lock section of the Schematic:
Place a jumper between pins 2 and 3 of J15
This engages the 1st switch (Lid Lock) so, I don't have to slam the lid anymore
3. Since my Lock switch (2nd switch), which is engaged with a magnetic, is working, my work is done.
If you find that your machine is still not starting the cycle, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

you have 2 screws on each side of the lid, make sure they are thight. one side of the hinge activate the lid switch. if that dont work then you damage the lid switch. replaced.

Maytag mav6200aww washing machine doesn't rinse clothes


If you say this only happens on the Colors and Whites cycle i dont see what the lid switch or balance sensor (if your washer has one) would have to do with it. It does seem like it has something to do with the timer,,, it really sounds like maybe the (Colors & Whites) section of the timer is malfunctioning. Inside the timer, there are a series of gears and switches, and by slamming the lid, or tapping on the timer control knob,,, it could maybe help the damaged part of the gear move, temporarily "fixing" the problem

Have to slam lid down to get washer to start


Did not want to disect the entire machine to get at the lid switch. Couldn't figure out how to get the corner covers off so I figured we would continue to slam the lid until that no longer worked and then "call the guy". Thanks.

Will not go pass the wash cycle to spin or drain


There is at least one safety switch activated by the lid.
Depending on machine construction, these are somewhat exposed to water incursion that eventually causes them to fail.
The slamming of the lid is causing the failing switch to make enough contact to allow it to spin.

If you are lucky (I don't know your machine), these may be located toward the rear of the housing where they can be fairly easily replaced.
