Re: Maytag washer wont start after it fills
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

sounds like you have a bad lid switch part 3949247 and it's around 50 dollars.open the lid,look at the right side,you'll see a hole,stick a screw driver into the hole and push down easy with the machine set on spin,if it doesn't spin and when you push up and down on the switch with the screw driver the lid switch is bad.watch video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5aW9WkTFhE
first check the lid switch,open and close down the lid and listen for a clicking sound,if you don't hear it clicking you have a bad lid switchtry opening the lid with it on spin and stick a screw driver or anything that will fit in the hole where the lid closes down into the hole where the lid switch is,if it runs then you know the lid switch is bad.also on washers,in the rinse cycle only cold water is used in the final rinse,no cold water the washer won't fill and run,the valve will just hum.let me know how you make out,you could also have a bad timer.if you need more help send the model number
There's no water at allIf there's no water at all, make these checks:Is there water getting to the machine?Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown? Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.
Sound like the lid switch has went out , you should hear it click when the lid is close to an inch of being closed , they are un-expensive and easy to replace and they go out often from use. Easy to find online with your real model number located under the lid.
The washer with the grind noise is a main bearing going out and may be covered under warr. through maytag.
