Question about Kenmore 23822 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Washer doesn't spin or drain unless I open the lid.

I have a maytag atlantis mav7600 washer. Every time I start the wash it fill and agitates, all the way through until the timer reads off. However, if I open the lid when it is supposed to be spinning, the machine will switch and start draining and spinning then fill and start agitating. I changed the lid switch with no luck. The failure happens on whites, and colors cycle, every time it is suppose to spin and drain it continues to agitate unless I physically stop it by opening the lid. Could this be the timer or a mechanical problem not allowing the machine to change cycles?

Hay this is a tougher one .i tried to find a wiring diagram but couldn't.so ill tellyou what im thinking.when it stops and you lift the lid and it gets going is the clue,we know motor ok it will spin .we know lid switch ok you replaced.sooooooooo take a look at your diagram and see what componets come into play by way of the lid swtch opening then closeing.some how power is diverting may be to timer..........wow you gave a pretty good report on whats going on.so im reading and the running it in my mind.you say it will agaitate until in off position.so im thinking how can that happen.there has tobe a contact point stuck.when unit gets to end of washs cycle it should pause and wait to empty then refill or spin if after rinse .the presure switch tells the timer that has been done,but if presure switch bad washer may over flow or not fill so it seams fine.thinking.......you could use the process of elimanation but that could be expensive.thinking.........could the presure switch hose be blocked ,fooling the system? clean blow out.there can be no water in it before the tub fills..........you can blow thru tube while attached to presure switch and with ohm meter make sure its switches are working........but check all you can to elimanate the eazy stuff and go from their.i hope ive been some help.you can email if any questions .God bless ,tom

Maytag top loading washer will not agitate


My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

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.

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.
