Re: servis washing machine
There was a service bullitin on this model concerning the lid switch and this sounds like your problem. Maytag redesigned it because of excessive failures. The new switch kit part number is 12001908. I don't know if you would have any luck contacting Maytag with regards to repairing this for free, but you could check. For reference the bullitin they put out was TCL-0001-b. If you cannot get anywhere with them, it's not a hard fix. We should be able to walk you through it. Catriver..post back

Hi it may be that the heating element has a fault in other words short circuit, you will need an electrician or a service engineer to check that, as the water fills into the washer it then tries to heat the water first to carry out further duties in the cycle. I hope that this message might help you eric
It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing. I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information. RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell. In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
