Try leveling the washer. Check for play along the diagonal corners of the washer cabinet by applying downward pressure. If there is any play at all, the washer will shake during spin and the legs must be leveled.

You have br put your heavy washer on a floor that would be condemned for structural weakness if a building inspector saw it. Try placing reinforcing pads or pieces of plywood on the floor under the washer.
On Maytag top loaders: worn damper pads.
On Whirlpool/Kenmore direct-drive machines: worn snubber pad

I’m an owner of the FAV6800A LED console display version. You have the LCD console.

This issue could be related to a failed Control Board a failed Motor Controller. It could be related to loss of signaling to and from the lid locks.

What is your skill set level can you use a DVM to measure D.C. voltages in the machine?

If not I would recommend a knowledgeable repair service to help resolve the issue and that may be a challenge. But read on and maybe we can get you to look at the Left Hand Lid Lock,

You can raise the washer lid from the base to remove your clothes from the wash basket with this process and the Service Manual . Don’t break the Left Hand Lid Lock latche if you do you will need to replace the Left Hand Lid Lock. The machine only needs that Lid Lock to operate as designed.

Raise the top of the machine. Insert a flat blade putty knife approximately 2.5” from the left and right sides of the washer top, depress the spring tabs securing machine top to the washer base. See page 33 of the SM for putty knife insertion point.

Diag code 4 for both machines = The lid fails to lock. Look on page 25 for the error code description in then points you to this “”Go to "Will not unlock" Troubleshooting Section””. Confusing right?

I think you could have corrosion issues with the Left Hand lid lock. If you want to DIY this part of the machine see this post for Left Hand Lid Lock Troubleshooting.

Take a look and see what direction you want to go…..Rich

That happened to me once. I just unplugged the machine for a few mins and it released the lock when I plugged it back in. I've got my fingers crossed that it doesn't happen again.

Either the circuit for the locks on the control board is faulty,Or the locks themselves are faulty. From what you are explaining, I would tend to think the board is the problem. As you are able to unplug then the lock will unlock. You need to put the machine through a diagnostic test to determine what error code is showing, and to also test each component. Here is a complete service manual for your machine. Look at page 6-4 for instructions on entering the diagnostics mode.

Its normal for the machine to cycle the lock before starting its cycle. I'm assuming your machine is a bravos style.

Want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial


I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK
