Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

I had a small load of laundry going in my 13 year old maytag washer; I lifted the lid to drop another item in and when I put the lid down it would not restart. The "button" that goes in and out with the lid up and down works; it's plugged in, reset the circuit breaker, no luck

The check switch in the lid switch assembly probably shorted and will need to be replaced.

do NOT call the Blue guys from Sears,,,he told me it would cost more than $2000 to fix a machine that will wash but not spin or drain ( I could get it to do both by pushing certain buttons). It is now outside and I have a used $215 washer that is doing great.

Everytime we do laundry, we have a horrible smell in the washing machine. We have tried bleach and hot water but no success. Any other ideas?


Be sure your using HE Laundry det. only use the recommended amount on the bottle, I use the liquid, the less the better, I use the least amount.....To much soap left in clothes can cause mildew and stinky smell, also I recommend using a fabric softner, it helps to remove the soap....and smells good....also use a good washer cleaner, I use Affresh, they come in tablets, go to www.affresh.com and put in you zipcode to find where you can purchase it in you area......make sure after a load is finished that it doesn't sit in the tub with the lid down for long, removing the laundry promptly will also help with stinky laundry........also, leave the lid or door open for a couple of days to air it out after cleaning.....use the Affresh at least once a month.......hope this helps you

Maytag Atlantis washer will not drain and spin unless you lift the lid


The cheaper thing to check first is is your lid bent? The lid switch is in the center of the lid. If it "droops" or has been bent, it shaft on the back of the lid cant hit the switch. Open the lid and apply pressure in the bottom, center of the lid. This usually corrects the problem without replacing the switch.

Black spots on white laundry


is the washer noisey when spinning? If so its probable that the main bearings are worn, & losing the original grease into the wash tub. At 10-14 yrs old its probably not woth fixing (assuming parts are still available)
