Question about Maytag PAV3240A Top Load Washer
Your help would be greatly appreciated. This has happened before. The tub fills and then stops. I believe it is a overload problem and the machine automatically turns off. I had it taken out and repaired beofre. They said it was a rtest button that needed to be reset - that's all. But $75 later... If you could tell me where the reset button is located I can do it myself and save on money and hassle. I have to miss work to be there for pick up and delivery. there is a re set portion of the load size on the front of machine -- but that is not the reset button the repairman talked about thank you in advance for your help
Your repairman was pulling your leg. There is no "reset" switch on these. The lid switch is bad. You know how, when it is washing clothes, you can lift the lid and the machine shuts down? That's the lid switch doing that. Now, you lid switch is failed, so the machine thinks the lid is open. Replace the switch and all is well in the world. The part number is #12001187 and lists for ~$14.00. Can be purchased at your local appliance parts store.
