Question about Maytag MVWX500XL High-Efficiency Bravos X Top Load Washer - Lunar Silv
Washer has no power after closing lid circuit breaker is good and wall plug works with other appliances
You should hear a click just before the lid closes and a click just after it opens. If no click, check lid switch and it's actuator.

Try pushing firmly on the center of the lid.... with the lid closed... it could be that the lid switch isn't making proper contact to turn the machine on.
If this is the case, you can open the lid, and while holding the lid open with one hand, put firm pressure on the rear lip of the lid right in the center..where it makes contact with switch...
This was a common occurence at my laundromats because people would sit/stand on the machines..
Hope this gets ya up and runnin'

Take out the bleach and softener tray (it just lifts out, angle it a little) and unscrew the 4 bezel screws and take out the bezel. You will find a red or green plastic pull line that is supposed to release the door. You may have to "man-handle" the door a bit and pull hard on the line before it will release. Once you work on the door release mechanism (I had to replace the wax motor again, even though it was the "upgrade" black plunger type) I recommend shooting a little silicon spray on the white plastic moving parts of the locking mechanism to get them to move more easily.
This is true on a Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWW front loading washer. Mine is 11 years old, and had the initial wax motor work done at 7 years.

The newer top loading washer designs don't use standard switches as was typical many years ago.
Today, these washers use a magnetic switch, and bypassing is not easily possible, due to the logic circuits that monitor the washer and all the various cycles.
For any reputable tech to provide a instructions to bypass any safety feature, would be highly irresponsible and would expose us to legal action by this site and the product manufacturer.
Please understand, providing a way to defeat a product's safety feature is against the law and will remain on the internet for years to come, along with the person(s) that provided it, exposing me and my family to a potential lawsuit - sorry, but I wouldn;t do that for my own family, yet alone some stranger.
Just chaulk it up to new technology, just like seat belts and air bags have changed auto safety.
Hope you understand and find this Very Helpful - Enjoy your new washer and best regards!

Testimonial: "I suspected there wouldn't be a way to bypass it, but thought it was worth asking. It'll make laundry take a little longer. Thanks for the help! "
Most likely a bad machine control,can also possibly be a motor per whirlpool but I have never had to change a motor,changed a lot of machine controls.
