Replacing lid on old Maytag toploader

I want to transfer the lid from one old Maytag top loader to another. The lids are "hinged" with little balls that fit into a depression in the side of the lid and into a corresponding depression in the top of the machine. How can I pop the lid out of the "old" machine without ruining it and pop it into the "new" one"?

Thanks

Hal

    Amazing! It went just as you said. I did have the ball pop out several times, but we finally got it in.

    Many Thanks.

How do I replace a lid switch for model # awm392w


I own 20 speed queen top loaders that the same machine as yours.
they are 19years old and have never had a lid switch go out.
the problem is the arm that activates the switch gets bent and can activate the switch. to fix take the 2 screws out of the left side of the lid hinge then tilt the lid to the side and slide the right side out. this is the arm that activates the switch . looking at the top of the lid bend the arm up just a small amount. them put it back on the machine and try it you may have to bend a little more to make it work.

Maytag MTW5770 TQ model. 3 years old. You have to drop the lid hard or push on it to get the machine to recognize the lid is 'closed' and can then start the agitation and rest of cycles. It does...


Some of them have a mercury switch that has been bent so it doesn"t make good contact with the liquid mercury. If you can find it you can bend it back. It has to be on the door or an arm under the door or door hinge.
If you know how, you can raise the washer top using a flat knife type of tool to move springs thru the gap between the washer top & the lower front piece. (assuming it's a top loader)
In a front loader it's still near the door.

The cycle stops at final rinse and water is left in the drum.............until I cycle the knob and depress to activate.


tighten the hinge screws on the top left of the lid. If that doesn't get it started hit the top to engage the lid switch which is hooked into the left hinge on a whirlpool. if its a maytag, its in the center of the rear lid and you must remove the consoles rear to access the lid switch

Top loader washing machine - won't work unless I slam down the top door. Any suggestions? Thanks


I think it is in the lid switch. If the lid switch is malfunctioning on a maytag top loader it will not start washing. Probably by slamming the lid you are making the connection you need for the time being. It is located at the back underneath the lid in the middle. Follow the link and you will see and diagram and parts associated with your washer. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=A4910&productCategoryId=0153000&brandId=3048&modelName=MAYTAG-LAUNDRY&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=TOP COVER, CONSOLE & LID SWITCH

Cycle won't start


the lid is not making proper contact with the lid switch, easy repair.
the lid is held to the maintop with a set of hinges. The left side hinge actually doubles as the lid switch actuator. so youll need to lift the lid, and feel for the opposite end of the hinge assy. when you feel the metal "arm " for lack of better word. youll need to bend it slightly towards the back of machine( usually use a hollow shafted screwdriver) as you bend backward the lid will want to close, so apply a little pressure. Your bending the "arm" to make better contact with the switch which ismounted tothe underside of the main top assembly. Before starting open and close the lid a few times and listen for the "click" of the switch activating. then recheck after bending youll hear a big diff

The Error display is "OP"


I had that same problem. I lift the top up by using a screwdriver and pushing in clips that are in the front. Lift lid carefully from the front. A hinge in the back will hold the back of the lid. Look where locks are located and see if they are connected. On my washer the connection was barely on. I reconnected the lock and have not had problem since. Good luck.

Whirlpool Top loader


Open the lid and the model and serial tag is on the washer itself in the middle under lid in back. Open lid and look at area where lid and washer top come together between hinges.
