Replace the micro switch and your problem is solved.Its a very small switch right next to your door switch and fuse.It has 3 wires and must be replaced to fix this problem.

Washer doesn't go on (or fill) when pull out the knob. Fuse was replaced some months ago and when it stopped now we replaced fuse but it popped again.


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Check the lid switch there are two.Usually when the fuse blows it is connected with a failed lid switch.I always change them together.It is part number 12001514

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

Maytag Washer Just Stopped After it Filled With Water (Timer?)


Cant rule out the timer but I suspect first check the lid switch. The timer and other components are fed from the lid switch on most models. Just put the2 wires together and reapply power if it works replace the lid switch. If not you'll have to have a wire diagram to know where to check next, but your water level switch "fill switch" could be at fault. it stops the water valve 1 way and can energize the rest of the circuits the other way. It may not be closing in the "full" direction. Again this switch if so wired will have 3 wires on it.

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin


it only has one block fuse and should be located somewhere close to where the power cord comes into the washer. Go here www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-LSE7806A-%3d%3di435797&PartID=435797 this is what you need to check.

The Maytag top loader washer MAV7750BGW started to fill at the beginning of the washing cycle then stopped. Could not get it to do anything on any other cycle steps. Electrical supply OK. Managed to get...


It sounds like you have a lid switch problem. Check your the lid on your washer and see if it's not bent towards the middle. Often as things get sat on top, it will bend and not allow the switch to make contact. The washer doesn't do anything but fill when the machine thinks the lid is open. Try bending the middle of the lid back to where it is straight.
