    I have a Maytag Atlantis Top loader. The lid switch is malfunctioning. I have been able to run the wash by inserting a bent coat hanger but it is an obvious temp fix. Short of paying a repair man to come fix it, does anyone here have any solutions?

    Same problem, washer filled with water, and just stopped. I looked at the lid switch, and I think it's broken off. Any easy way to repair?

Starts to spin then stops and sounds like it shuts off


You are probably overloading it. When it stops just open it, take some clothes out and rearrange the clothes in the washer so that they are as evenly spread as possible. Close the lid back. It should cycle on again. If it does not, repeat the same procedure. When the weight/ bulk of the clothes is small enough for the machine to handle it should then complete the cycle/wash.

Lg front loading washer flasing LE and stops midcycle


In new installations, this error can sometimes present because of a miscommunication between the control panel and the wash motor. In this instance, the washer simply needs to be reset.

Step 1: Unplug the washing machine.

Step 2: While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for 5 seconds.

Step 3: Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the LE code is cleared.

Clothes Washer stopped running. I have a Maytag PAV2300AWW clothes washer that was mistaken ran with a full load on the small load setting and stopped working mid cycle. Any help with the cause and


first check the house breaker and make sure you still have power. If it does then I would unplug the machine and lean it back against the wall to look at the motor wiring harness underneath to see if it came loose or is wet.

Rubbing and Clicking Noise in Dryer.


It's noisy Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary. 

A common problem with noises from washing machines has been the under wire that may come out of small clothes. In the washer they can get stuck in one of the inner basket holes and make a scrapping noise, they can actually make there way into the pump and jam the pump, or make a terrible noise when the pump is running. Grab a flash light and have a peek inside the washer for this. Front load washers seem very common to this happen! If the tiny cloth  is showing signs of fraying, may be best not to wash it in the washing machine, replace the cloth
