HI, Check and see if the door hinge screws are tight. Sometimes the hinge loosens and the lid switch will not activet properly. It the lid is tight, you might have a lid switch going bad. The lid switch is located under the control panel. There is a screw in each corner of the control panel in the back side. Loosen these screws and lift the control panel up and it will rest on the hinges.
Ths lid switch is to the left and should have three wire to it. Parts# 8318084
I hope this helps you. If I can assist you further or you need a place to order the lid swtich, please give my web site a chance at www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com

Thanks

Your lid saftey switch is probably the problem. for a temporary fix.... remove the rubber gommet on your washer lid, its under the lid on the right side should be mounted on a white plastic "stick". the grommet is grey in color. if that solves the problem then your switch is going bad or you door is bent. if the door looks fine order nad replace the switch. or have a professional by to do it.

you probably have a faulty lid switch/ locking mechanism. it is all in one. if the machine does not sense that the lid is closed properly, it will not start. you can try unplugging it to see if it will release the lid lock.

A humming sound in the cycle knob


Make sure that the room is quiet then check that there is a clicking noise from the lid when it is nearly closed

If not then the microswitch is out of whack and needs adjusting

When you slam the door down it is probably enough to make the switch but then the machines movement will undo that action

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

Must repeatedly slam top loading door shut for machine to start


on the inside of the lid there is a lid switch hole that a plastic tab goes down through the switch could be bad or the screws holding the switch in could be lose or broken

The switch that makes it think it's closed is broken.


You are referring to the lid switch. If it's visible, try tightening the screws that hold it to the cabinet (they may be loose and the lid strike can't engage the switch properly). If you can, feel underneath where the lid switch is located and see if it's broken from where it mounts (feels loose). Push the lid switch lever down, if it doesn't "click" or doesn't start the wash, replace the lid switch and you should be good to go.
If you want, post your model number to make sure it's the model I'm thinking of and I can also try and get you the part number for the lid switch.
