This may help mine is a 500 series instead of 700.
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 after jumpering pins 2 and 3, you will need to
replace the Lid Lock mechanism or ref the above link for temp bypass.

Maytag Washer Lid lock light

Its normal for the machine to cycle the lock before starting its cycle. I'm assuming your machine is a bravos style.

Our Maytag Bravos washing machine will not unlock. The lock light is not lit up. We ran a load twice and it still did not unlock.

du is the code for cannot unlock,,,,is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will keep the lid from unlocking. Press POWER/CANCEL once to clear the code.....
