Can you change the door direction on a Maytag

Unfortunately, you can only change front loading dryer door directions on some models. Washing machines do not allow this. If the units are stacked i may be easier to switch loads, otherwise the dryer door may be able to have the door swing direction changed but without the Dryer model # I couldn't say for sure.

yes it should run continuosly,(at least untill the water level drops.) a more common instance withthis machine is that the drain line is blocked/restricted, or somethingis ninthe pump housing. it is even possible hat the pump impeller has dislodged from the housing and although it sounds as if its "pumping" its moving no water..usually in htis case your able to open the filter assembly and "pushback on hte impeller(normal impeller will not ,ove back" however if it was dislodged it will have foward play.i would even blow out the drain hose form the pump to the drain standpipe, just in case.
F02 is def a long pump out time and no ther ewill be no high speed spin with water in unit(or if it thinks thers water in unit)

Machine stops after wash cycle, restarts when i bang the lid.

sounds as if hte lid switch is not activating correctly, the lid actuator is actulle hte under side of left hand door hinge. if you lkift the lid and feel under the left side og the lid you fell the metal lid hinge, simply slip a hollow shafted screwdriver over the hingeitself and bend slightly back, this will make the lid come in contact with swict a little bit easier
