To replace part #1477, female hinge part for lid

How do I get the top of the PAV2300AWW Matag washer off so I can get to the screw that holds the part #1477, female hinge part for lid off?

My old matag had 2 screws in the lower part of the fron of the washer that allowed one to remove the front and then the top. The PAV2300AWW does not have any screw?

My washer will work on everything except the spin will not drain the water out. Please help....don't know what to do

Replace the defective lid switch,it is under the control console. their are screws in the back of each end cap securing the control panel to the top. Also make sure the screws holding the left side hinge to the lid are tight because they also move the arm that activates the lid switch. very easy repair Good Luck

If the lid is hinged along the back in line with the lid cover you just use a screw driver and pry it up from the front. SOME are not hinged and you must remove the back cover and slide lid or push lid backward to release
the clips

How do you remove the top of a MAH5500B Front Load Washer

you need to remove the door hinges and the screws opposite the hinges. that will allow you to remove the front panel and the you will see the latch and the top hold down screws. once you have the top up, then you will also need to remove 2 screws that hold the latch to the upper frame. it is hard to pivot the latch out from the frame but it will come out and then you can replace the assembly.
by the way.. why are you wanting to replace the latch?? any failure codes? you might also have to replace the control board as it will fail when the door latch shorts out.
if you look at the control board you might see some of the resistors that have burnt out/ shorted out. sorry but it happens alot.
if it is less then 5 years old, then you might get it fixed under warranty for free part.

Will not spin Maytag PAV2300AWW top loader

check your door switch. Many times a faulty door switch can prevent the spin cycle. When you locate the door switch, take a jumper wire across the connection and advance the timer to spin. If it spins with the jumper wire, you will need a new door switch.
