Have to slam lid down to get washer to start

The switch associated with the lid must be out of place or something because you have to really slam the lid to get the washer to start. Is there a way to adjust the switch? Thanks.

    I have exactly the same problem - have to slam the lid down really HARD to get machine to start after it fills. There is no tab on the lid, no slot in the top. Where is the lid switch, and how do I get to it?

    Also have this problem . slam it down or just tap it by the hinge in back, so weird . Must be a loose wire in the machine.

Did not want to disect the entire machine to get at the lid switch. Couldn't figure out how to get the corner covers off so I figured we would continue to slam the lid until that no longer worked and then "call the guy". Thanks.

Lid lock broken can I overide?


Washer not starting Cycle:
I would have to slam the washer lid before the washer recognized the lid was shut.
What I did to fix:
1. Ref the link below for Schematics
http://blog.kennyluong.com/Tricking-A-Maytag-Bravos-Washer/
2. Looking at the Lid Lock section of the Schematic:
Place a jumper between pins 2 and 3 of J15
This engages the 1st switch (Lid Lock) so, I don't have to slam the lid anymore
3. Since my Lock switch (2nd switch), which is engaged with a magnetic, is working, my work is done.
If you find that your machine is still not starting the cycle, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

Must slam the lid on our whirlpool washer to get it to wash after it fills with water.


The lid switch need replacing or adjusted. When the lid is down something pushes the switch down. It could be back at the hinge or a slot elsewhere in the top.

Top loader washing machine - won't work unless I slam down the top door. Any suggestions? Thanks


I think it is in the lid switch. If the lid switch is malfunctioning on a maytag top loader it will not start washing. Probably by slamming the lid you are making the connection you need for the time being. It is located at the back underneath the lid in the middle. Follow the link and you will see and diagram and parts associated with your washer. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=A4910&productCategoryId=0153000&brandId=3048&modelName=MAYTAG-LAUNDRY&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=TOP COVER, CONSOLE & LID SWITCH

Have to slam the lid


The same thing happened here. It turned out to be the lid switch. It can be accessed by taking off the back plate (behind the controls) by unscrewing three screws and two screw bolts -simple.

I removed the lid switch and tested it with an ohm meter - instructions are on this site. You should have continuity across machine-motor, as well as across machine -line. (These are labeled on the switch).

If you don't have a meter and you still want to see if that's the problem, after you have removed the lid switch, short the machine and line connectors, (you'll see these labeled on the lid switch so you'll be able to figure out which wires go with what) as well as shorting the machine and motor connectors. Both of these need to be shorted. That bypasses the switch and will activate the motor and controls.

That's what I did to confirm that it was all a "lid switch " problem. I ordered a lid switch from this site for $24.95 for the repair, and will use the "shorting process" to do a couple of loads of wash as I wait three days to get the switch. Good luck.

Hoover


yep, you most likely are looking at disassembly of washer to re-install the lid switch mechanism. that metal rod likely leads to some sort of switch.
