Question about Maytag LAT3600A Top Load Washer
I have checked the lid switch and the water level (pressure) switch;
both are in working order. I have "checked" the contacts in the timer
the best I could and they all seem to have good contacts; however,
since I could not open this unit to see if the inside contacts are
good. Since it is a mechanical contact and the timer motor itself
works, I wonder if I should change the entire timer (unit) at a cost of
Did you check to see if you had power coming to the motor during agitate cycle? Use the wiring schematic to check 120V or at least a voltage detector. If you do, then the timer is ok and may be the transmission.

The most likely failure is the water level pressure switch or a failed lid switch. If the washer will drain and spin then it's not a failed lid switch. If it will not drain and spin the likely failure is the lid switch.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has 3 wires attached to it, V (violet), P (Pink) and a T (tan) wire. When the tub is empty of water, contact V&P are closed to allow the tub to fill with water. Once the water level reaches the desired setting, contact V&P opens and then contact V&T closes to start the motor agitating. So, with this said if you were to unplug the washer and remove the wires from the water level pressure switch and test to see if terminals V&T is closing by using an ohm meter would indicate if the contact is closed or not.
