Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
I WAS WASHING CLOTHES WHEN THE WASHER STOPPED I WENT TO TRANSFER FROM WASHER TO DRYER . I FOUND THE WASHER IN THE OFF POSITION ON THE KNOB. I OPENED THE WASHER TO FIND THAT IT WAS STILL FULL OF WATER AND SOAP IT SEEMED TO HAVE JUMPER FROM THE WASH CYCLE STRAIGHT TO THE OFF POSITION SKIPPING EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN. I FINALLY MANAGED TO WIGGLE THE KNOB AROUND TO GET THE WASHER TO SPIN OUT ALL OF THE WATER. PRAYING I WOULDNT HAVE TO DIP IT OUT. BUT THE THING IS I GOT THE WASHER TO SPIN THE WATER OUT IN THE OFF POSITION THIS SEEMS REALLY WEIRD TO ME. WOULD THIS JUST BE A PROBLEM WITH THE TIMER KNOB OR COULD IT RUN DEEPER? I DONT KNOW WHAT PART TO ORDER . MY MODEL NUMBER IS LAT9304AAE AND IT IS FARELY OLD BUT I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS IN THE PAST.PLEASE HELP ME ASAP!!!! PLEASE EMAIL ME AT LILHARVELL@HOTMAIL.COM CANT FIND MY PRODUCT NUMBER BELOW SO I PUT IT ABOVE MAYBE YOU STILL CAN HELP! PLEASE
An easy way to diagnose timer problem: If it doesn't rinse or spin on regular wash, try the permanent press cycle. If all works OK, it's the timer.

To peterm622 DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS IF YOU HAVENT ANY ELECTRICAL EXP.)
i had the same problem yesterday. i removed the face and found a schematic inside and traced wiring.first thing i thought was the lid switch, there is 2 of them, a black one with two prongs and a white micro switch with 3 prongs. i have seen these micro switches (the schematic called it a check switch) go bad many times before in all kinds of applications so i tested continuity and found that it was bad, causing the timer to think lid was open.so as a temp fix i made a jumper and connected the black/black wire connector to the red/red connector and left white wire un hooked and operation is now fine. best i can tell this is a reduntant swich to the main lid switch only. but i will replace soon.my wash cycled completed as normal. these switches are very common and maytags part no. is ap25608 and cost around 10-15 dollars.try replacing this before the timer.

Probably needs a new timer. This is usually more than the machine is worth.
