SOURCE: Maytag MLE 2000AYW: Doesn't spin
The Door Locked light is not activated by the door itself but by the wax motor inside the door latch assembly. The activation of the Door Locked light switch signals the control board to advance to the spin cycle and it is done by the wax motor by extending its shaft and pushing the switch contacts together. Advancing of the machine to the spin cycle when the switch is activated manually by the S hook simply tells that the wax motor (part number 12002535) has indeed failed and needs to be replaced.
Disconnect power then unstack the dryer from the top of the washer. Open the washer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.
Disengage the front panel posts from the clips located on the face of the cabinet by grasping the upper part of the front panel posts and pressing in on the outer edges then twisting it inward.
Once the front panel posts are released from the cabinet, tilt the front panel away from the cabinet and remove it.
Remove the two 5/16" hex-head screws securing the two top cover hold down brackets; one on each side.
Swing the brackets to the outside and unhook it from the lip of the top cover then lift the top cover to the rear if the machine.
The door latch assembly can now be accessed and replaced. Reassemble the machine in reverse order of the disassembly steps.
