Re: MAYTAG A-606

There are two methods used to hold the agitator in place. The first is a main bolt at the top of the agitator under the softener cup. The second is a small bolt located on the lower portion of the agitator. To access the transmission the tubs will have to be removed.

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.

MAYTAG top loader makes high pitched squeal when agitating/spinni

This is a classic symptom of pulley/motor shafts/bearings in need of lubrication. It's not the agitator. You'll need to take the back off (with power unplugged) to access.

Maytag washer Model # MAV9557 that tries to agitate while in the spin cycle

If you can do it yourself you can save some cash, but if not, the transmission repair won't be as much as a new one. If it is in great shape and about half the cost of a new one, it makes sense to fix it.
