Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
For no apparent reason, my washing machine won't do anything. It stopped working after it filled with water. I replaced the control timer ($80), but it doesn't fix it. I know the electrical outlet is working, and the lid contact that occurs when the lid is closed seems to be making contact. But I cannot get anything to happen. I thought is might be the motor or motor related, however, I should be able to get the water to fill the maching (that isn't a motor issue). It seems like it isn't plugged in even though it is. Any thoughts on what to do next?
I have one that stopped working like this. The switch on the top lid didn't makeup, so it became habit to bang the lid down to make the switch makeup. One day someone banged it so hard, everything stopped. The lid switch seems to also have a sort of vibration switch inside it that breaks when things get too violent (I assume badly out of balance. When this breaks, your only choice is a new lid switch, about $35.
PS How do you disassemble, or remove the front cover for a possible burnt motor?

Check your washer plug carefully & the fuse in the plug..............may sound silly.

If the cycle won't complete then either it's a problem with the timer or a cold-water supply problem:-
If your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water.
