Question about Washing Machines
Everything runs fine on the washer except when it gets to a cycle to spin. The spinning will not start unless I open and then close the lid.
Possible there could be some loose connections on the panel board or the controller unit circuit which gets activated when the door is shut. Try to tap instead of opening the door to confirm a loose joint. If not it is related to a RESET fault within the controller , please check the door switch and connections to the controller.

You have a bad lid switch. Before I retired Maytag had a lid switch kit that improved the switch that was originally in it. The problem would usually present itself if a person accidentally dropped the lid with a bang which would put the lid switch out of adjustment.

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
