I used to have 2 laundromats full of toploader Maytags... these will fill and do exactly what is happening to you if the LID SWITCH is not activating. Open and close the lid and listen for a clicking sound. Look a the rear edge of the lid... there is an indentation that is supposed to activate a small white switch in the that's attached to the top of the machine. Many times the lid will simply get bent.. someone sitting on the lid, standing on the lid... will be enough to throw it out of whack. Close the lid and push on the center of the closed lid... will the machine work? Or carefully push a flatblade screwdriver tip between the lid and the switch to see if you can get it to activate. Solution: Open the lid and apply firm pressure on the lid towards the back of the machine, while with the other hand push DOWN on the back edge of the lid...right where the indentation for the switch is... if you give it a slight tweak...you'll probably be back in business. One other thing, if the lid switch isn't clicking...replace it.

Do you have a wiring diagram for install a maytag washer water valve? the washer model is LA212


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but this forum does not supply operation and service manuals direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer service manual' and you may be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Also may I suggest you try the manufacturer's web site direct? You may find, however, that it will supply only to service engineers but good luck anyway.
Good luck,
John C

Sounds like a bad timer motor.
Try watching the timer motor and see if you can see it moving .

Maytag LA212 Toploading Washer - leaks as soon as a load is started. Will continue to leak until washer is stopped. Not a small leak - there is a puddle two days later in the floor below it. Removed...


It appears that from that area the problem may be the water inlet valve or it's connections. See diagram https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/LA212/3048/0153000.html?searchType=modelSearch&q=LA212&searchTerm=LA212
