My Maytag bravos will not start at first the lid lock light was flashing I got the codes for the washer and all error codes are the lid lock assembly.still having same error codes

if your sure its the codes for the lid lock your getting I hope you have replaced them (do make sure to align pin on front right side ) , as ive had two of these now that have codes for the tray lock that's the tray at the back of lid area it needs to be back and latched tight to run past wash step , due to these being plastic and the water entering drum just behind them I suspect the hot water to messing with there latch mech and not allowing 4 a complete latch or something , anyways I have just replaced them to eliminate the fault in the past that's how I found out about the lid pin holes being slotted to allow for placement

The cycle does not go

The typical problem is a bad water pump. Your washing machine would still do the agitation part, though. It would just stop when it came time to drain the tub. Replacing the water pump every so often is almost routine maintenance on old machines. It's inexpensive and fairly easy.
If it won't agitate, there's another possibility. You have a safety mechanism that keeps the washing machine from doing the spin cycle when the lid is open (you wouldn't want your kid reaching in there while the machine is spinning). I think most machines will agitate with the lid open, but some machines might not - while there is a slight safety risk, many people want to add bleach, laundry additives, etc, while the machine is agitating.
There should be a pin on the lid that goes into a hole and pushes the safety latch when the lid is closed. If you're missing that pin, you need to replace it (that would be a good problem, since the replacement pins are very cheap).
Once the machine fills up, push a screwdriver into the hole a little ways and see if the machine starts working.

Washer will not agitate or spin

odds are that the lid switch on your machine has either become disconnected or gone bad.  locate the pin on the lid of the machine and follow to where it would go into the machine when the lid is closed.  point a flashlight in there and see if you can locate the lever it has to depress in order for the machine to work.  if this is missing or positioned way too low for the pin to engage it, you will probably need to replace the switch.

I have emailed you several times but haven't received an answer.

This may take a couple of attempts in solving your problem. The first would be to suspect the lid interlock switch. On the lid at probably the front left underside corner, ( could be right ), there should be a plastic pin about 1 inch long. This pin trips the switch that is the 'lid interlock' switch. Check to see if that pin is still there or broken off.

Step two would be to start a wash load cycle from the begining. Let the washer fill to medium level**, and manually press the switch down with a plastic rod, ( Something like a Bic pen ), as far down as possible. This should start the agitation. If it does, pull away the pen and try it agian with the lid. If the lid pin has been broken off, replace it. If the pin is still there but it started with the pen and lid up then it is one of two things. 1. the switch is set to low down for the lid pin to activate the switch or the switch requires replace ment. In either case the front of the washer would have to be removed to get access to the switch. To remove the front/side panel remove the screws on the back spread the sides clear of the back and push the panel forward and off.

Good luck please let me know how that goes.

Opened it during spin cycle, machine kept running

if you open the lid, you will see a small pin on the lid proper, look where the lid seals when closed, you will see a small hole that that pin slides into. check to see if there is a blockage. if not. probably need to replace the switch that controls this.

Nothing happens after filling up

The missing pinis more than likely your problem.
Take a pencil or small screwdriver and insert into the lid switch hole and try the washer.
If it works, replace the lid pin.
If not, replace the lid pin AND the lid switch.
