Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV7551 Top Load Washer
I have a Maytag Dependable Crae Plus washer and during my last load the machine fulled up with water and just stopped. There is power so I know that's not the problem. I think it's the lid switch. Can I bypass pass the lid switch? I opened the top of the machine and I think that the lip switch is the black plastic assembly on the right. It has 2 units, a black one and a white one. i think the black one is the switch. can I just removethe 2 wire connections on either side of the switch and connect them? Will solve my problem for now? It's Dec. 28 and chances of getting a repair man before Jan. 05 ore slim and I have a 2 and a 3 year old at home which craete a lot of laundry. Any help would br greatly appreciated.
This washer has a 2 switch system for making sure the lid is closed. you wont be able to just "bypass" it as they designed it to not allow that. what you need to do is replace the whole switch assembly. it comes with both switches and a fuse all together and that should make your unit run again.
you can change this yourself but be careful to get the wires onto the new assembly n the right places.
