Washer Won't Work

I have a top load Maytag Atlantis washer. Everything was working fine besides the lid switch coming loose, and I solved that problem. Now all of a sudden the only cycle that will come on and work is the extra rinse. Any suggestions of what is wrong?

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.
