Put one of the plastic balls in place on one side of the lid, hold the lid against it to hold it in place. then put the other ball in the other side indention and push the lid down on it until it pops in place. it is a little tricky if you have never done it b4.

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 Performa Washer spins out of balance


There was a recall on the washer base, which caused the unbalanced problem. Find Technical Buletin TDL-0050B-B issued by Matag.

LID WON'T LATCH ERROR CODE FL


With that code FL “ Failed to lock” I would start looking at the lid latch mechanism. See this link from another site for lid latch problem.

If you want to try to repair or get a better understanding of how to diagnose and repair this machine take a look at the service repair manual.

I hope this will help with your decision to try a repair or replacement.  

Good luck with your issue.

Try leveling the washer. Check for play along the diagonal corners of the washer cabinet by applying downward pressure. If there is any play at all, the washer will shake during spin and the legs must be leveled.

You have br put your heavy washer on a floor that would be condemned for structural weakness if a building inspector saw it. Try placing reinforcing pads or pieces of plywood on the floor under the washer.
On Maytag top loaders: worn damper pads.
On Whirlpool/Kenmore direct-drive machines: worn snubber pad

Washer won't spin


Could be a worn belt,
Empty the machine and tilt backwards, you may need some help to do this.
Remove the belt and check, some times these appear OK but may have stretched.
Chech the agitator pully, try to rotate, will only move in one direction, see agitator moving as you do, get the person helping you to see this.
Check the motor moves freely on the tensioner, motor will appear to move 2".
Fit a new belt and try.

Wash cycle will not start


you may have leaned on lid and damaged the lid switch , so the washer thinks the lid is open all the time unit will fill then stop with lid up.
