Question about Maytag LAT3600A Top Load Washer
Maytag washer (model LAT8506AAE) filled with water, began washing. We opened lid to add more clothes and when we closed it, it is as if there was no power. Checked circuit breakers they are fine, tried plugging it into the dryer plug, and still "dead." The timer is not making any clicking noise at all. Is there a way to test the timer, and/or the push button switch that is triggered when you open the lid?
Hi, I would check the lid switch first. Remove the two screws that hold the control panel to the cabinet and let it rest on the hinges. Locate the lid switch connection and either test it for continuity or use an insolates wire and jump the switch by inserting the wire into the gray and brown wires. Turn the washer on and see if it works.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can assist you further.

Try pushing firmly on the center of the lid.... with the lid closed... it could be that the lid switch isn't making proper contact to turn the machine on.
If this is the case, you can open the lid, and while holding the lid open with one hand, put firm pressure on the rear lip of the lid right in the center..where it makes contact with switch...
This was a common occurence at my laundromats because people would sit/stand on the machines..
Hope this gets ya up and runnin'
