lift the lid. done light indicates that test cycle is complete. If you are getting done light only, all the time, control board is not recognizing that lid was lifted, allowing it to go back to normal operational mode. check lid switch and control board.

Lid lock broken can I overide?

Washer not starting Cycle:
I would have to slam the washer lid before the washer recognized the lid was shut.
What I did to fix:
1. Ref the link below for Schematics
2. Looking at the Lid Lock section of the Schematic:
Place a jumper between pins 2 and 3 of J15
This engages the 1st switch (Lid Lock) so, I don't have to slam the lid anymore
3. Since my Lock switch (2nd switch), which is engaged with a magnetic, is working, my work is done.
If you find that your machine is still not starting the cycle, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

Whirlpool ultimate care 2 - will fill but no cycle or drain, can hear the timer running

most likely you have a broken lid switch,close the lid,then open it around 6 inches,close it and open it a few times,as you do this if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is bad,part number 8054980 and it's around 25 dollars.
watch this video, when you click on it look down on the left side it will say replacing new style,click on it and it will show you your will show you how to make sure it's the lid switch but if you don't hear any clicking when you open and close the lid the switch is bad,also if the lid is pushed in from putting the laundry basket on top of it open the lid and wack the center of the lid to pop it back up,i've done this before when the lid is dented in and this fixes the problem,the arm that's connected to the lid doesn't hit the switch correctly with the lid dented in but usually the switch is bad and needs to be replaced.
watch the first part of this video and it will show you how to open the top console,this is different from your lid switch this is just to get you into the top so you can change the switch.good luck,if you need anymore help let me know and i hope this helps you out

Wont drain wont spin

This problem can be caused by a few things. first I would check the lid switch. You should be able to hear a clicking sound, this is the switch actuating. If you can't hear it, chances are you may need a lid switch. The machine won't spin but it should drain. part number for the lid switch is 8054980. The second problem could be that there is something caught inside the drain pump and now won't drain. It is also possible that the damage has already been done to the pumps impellers and can pump little or no water. If however you are hearing any sort of loud banging noise. this could indicate that your direct drive coupler needs to be replaced. part number for the coupler is 285753. These are common problems and can be easily diagnosed and replaced by a technician.hope this helps.

Maytag top loading washer will not agitate

My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

Broken disk lid

Not sure if you can find a replacement lid but you may be able to play DVD's if you manually depress the small switch that the lid would engage if it were closed. The switch is located where the lid hinges at the right side, you should see a small rectangular hole. The switch can be depressed through that hole. Of cousre, your DVD will be spinning with no lid to protect it but just don't touch it while the disc is playing. When done playing, you can just turn the unit off or remove whatever you used to engage the small lid switch.
