Very easy job. Did you source a local appliance distributor for the switch. Always make sure before attempting any repairs to unplug the machine. You need to separate the lid from the base. Take a two inch wide putty knife/scraper and place it between the the top and bottom of the machine. Slide it along approx. 6 inches from both ends. Here you'll find spring loaded clips. Take the putty knife and push in and up on the clip prying up on the top at the same time. It takes a bit of power. I place a screw driver or a piece of a wood between the two pieces as a wedge. Now go to the other side and do the same. The back of the washer is hinged but be careful not to let it go back too far. Use something to prop it open, like a stick etc. Now the lock is exposed and can be replaced. Good luck

SOURCE: Need to replace Lid Switch for Maytag Atlantis 2002 Washer

Hello, I can help you.


Let me explain to you how the Maytag washer lid switch works.
The lid switch is located on the controls panel, and is activated by opening and closing the washer door. The purpose of the lid switch is to prevent the washer from working with the door open.


It is a safety device to prevent the user from sticking their hands inside of the washer while the washer is agitating or spinning.


When the washer lid switch stops working, the result could be that the washer won't wash, drain, spin and in some cases the washer will not work at all.

You will need a multimeter to check the internal contacts on the washer lid switch.


You will also need to use the wiring schematic to see what contact should be close when the lid switch supposed to be on.


You will need to remember that the Maytag washer lid switch is one of the first parts that you will need to check, when the washer don't want to start filling, agitating, draining or spinning.

SOURCE: need to replace lid switch in older model maytag.

Usually attached to the underside of the machine's top. Small box with wires. Probably activated by either a post that sticks down thru the top from the lid or a lever moved by the lid hinges.

Fuses are there to protect from overheating and further damage to the appliance and/or wiring. A blown fuse is seldom ever the root cause of a problem... It is a symptom of a short or overload somewhere else in the circuit.

Check wiring to be sure there are no bare wires showing or shorting out against each other or the frame of the machine. Check that drive and pump motors turn freely (with power cord unplugged).

Your problem is NOT the fuse alone. Replacing it without correcting the root cause will result in yet another blown fuse.

SOURCE: How do I replace the lid switch on a Maytag

Well the model # you listed goes to a Whirlpool machine so here goes.. The screws that hold the control panel on are located at the rear bottom of the end caps for the console/control panel, not the screws at the top of the control panel..
Once you remove those screws the control panel should slide forward 1/2 inch or so the up, and flip right over backwards towards the wall.
Once that is flipped up you will see the lid switch located in the left front corner under that console. Remove the 5/16" ground screw from the green wire, lift the connector release and remove the wire from the switch. Then carefully depress the plastic tab to release the switch and it should more or less lift right out.. No need to disassemble the entire cabinet.
whirlpool #8318084 $15-20 buks depending on where u are..
best of luck, have fun,
ttfn

I need to know where the wires goes on a maytag washer model # LAT9306AAE After replacing The lid switch?


If you are referring to the switch itself, you can connect the two wires, one on each side of the switch. It doesn't matter which one goes on either side.

Maytag model ka806 won,t start. Could it be a safety switch or fuse?


If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not 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 washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.Here is the part you need.

Washer fills then nothing


HI. The timer will be the culprit here. The cogs seem to be worn, thus, not allowing the sequential advancement of the selected cycle. These cogs make contact with the dial plate. The timer motor provides the forward motion to glide the plate across the contacts. The culprit is , indeed, the timer mechanism. Replace it, if possible.

Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid


The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.
