Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

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

Our washing machine (Maytag top loader model A4910) filled up with water and then wouldn't work. My husband reset the circuit but it didn't help. When I slam down the top door to the washer, it starts. Any ideas of what is going on with the washer? At this time we can't afford a new washer. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Diane

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

Maytag Bravo Top Loader Lock will not work


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

There is likely to be a problem with either the door/lid solenoid/lock or the 'door/lid closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-0(

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Once filled, my washer sits indefinately until I open and slam the lid down several times. Any ideas?


If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Maytag washer, model: LAT8415AAE top loader. Washer fills with water but will not start agitating,spin or drain.


Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed
