THE MOST COMMON THING WITH THIS WASHER IS THE LID SWITCH. THERE IS A TEMPORARY & EASY WAY TO FIGURE THIS OUT. FIRST OPEN THE LID. LOOK AT THE BOTTOM JUST A LITTLE RIGHT OF CENTER WHEN THE LID IS UP. DO YOU SEE A LITTLE WHITE PLASTIC PIECE? THIS IS THE STRIKE FOR THE SWITCH. IF IT IS MISSING YOU NEED THAT. IF IT IS THERE LOWER YOUR LID SLOWLY UNTIL CLOSED ALL THE WAY. LISTEN TO HEAR A CLICK WHEN DOING THIS. A CLICK WILL DETERMINE IF THE SWITCH IS BEING ACTIVATED AND THE POSSIBILITY THAT IT IS GOOD. IF YOU HEAR THIS CLICK AND THE WASHER WILL NOT START THEN YOU MAY HAVE A TIMER ISSUE. IF YOU HAVE NO CLICK THEN CONTINUE. UNPLUG WASHER. REMOVE THE 3 SCREWS AT THE TOP OF THE CONSOLE. WITH ONE HAD ON THE CONSOLE TOP CENTER STARTED TO PULL FOREWARD. PUSH BACK AT THE BOTTOM CENTER WITH THE OTHER HAND. THE LID SWITCH HAS 2 RED, 2YELLOW, 2 WHITE AND 1 BLACK WIRE TO IT. UNPLUG THIS. ON THE BACK LEFT CORNER OF THE LID SWITCH THERE IS A LOCK TAB. WITH ON HAND LIFT THE WASHER LID UP 3 INCHES OR SO. WITH THE OTHER HAND LIFT THE LOCK TAB ON THE LID SWITCH WHILE PULLING FOREWARD ON IT. PUL LID SWITCH OUT AND PUSH THE PLUNGER IN. DOES IT CLICK? IF YES THEN FIND A VERY TINY SCREW TO SCREW IN THAT END OF THE PLUNGER. YOU ONLY NEED TO EXTEND THAT PLUNG LESS THAN 1/8 TO 3/32NDS OF AN INCH. YOU CAN ALSO GLU SOMETHING TO IT. REASSEMBLE ONCE THIS IS DONE.

When starting washer won't progress to wash cycle


Might be the heater thermostat or the timer.
If the water does not reach the required temperature the machine won`t continue.
Try it on a cold cycle this will prove it`s not the thermostat

Maytag la710 is dead. How do I test that there is power going in?


If the mains power is ok and you have tried with other power sockets then most likely the timer switch is faulty. It is an expensive part and might be better to buy a new washing machine which is more efficient. Check this site to help find the cause of the problem. The video might be a good place to start.

My electricity was turned off in a middle of wash and now power on but washer won't start


try to remove the wash load and start it without any load, if it still not working.
1. check the fuse; may be electricity went off due to a voltage fluctuation
2. make sure electricity reaches the machine.by using a tester.
3. if u r confident enough open it otherwise send it to repair.

Maytag LAT9635AAE won't start wash cycles


you can try to check the water level sensor Assembly this unit controls the fact that your washing machine will not wash until the proper water level is reached, this unit has a rubber hose attached to it and a wiring plug or connector for the electrical power to activate the motor.

Maytag maxima door locked


Similar problem here - pump was set for a 58 minute normal cycle, I look in and see it is now showing 67. Hmm. Attempt to shut it off because it is just sitting there pumping and pumping. Power shuts off but pump keeps running and add garment light flashing red. Cannot open door (to add garment or not) Unplug the unit and the door will not open. Anybody got a clue what's up? I have a wash in, service is closed due to a storm today. Just bugs me that it is 6 months old and seems to act up a fair bit electronically.

Water fills in, but wash cycle won't start. spin cycle works, changed motor still won't work


Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.
