Open the top of the unit by placing a putty knife beween the top and the front panel about two inches in. There is a spring lock that you need to push in, then lift the top. Once you lift the top, you will see the lid switch. Remove and replace. Let me know if you need further help. Jim

MY MAYTAG WAS SPINNING BUT SLOWILY. NOW IT WON'T SPIN AT ALL. THE LID SWITH IS GOOD, WHAT ELSE COULD BE PROBLEM?

it could be your agitator troubleshoot the following to isolate the problem: Unplug the washing machine, and turn off the water supply to the machine. If necessary, remove the water hoses from the back of the washing machine because they may be in the way of the access panel. 2 Check that the agitator is seated correctly by opening the lid of the washing machine. If it's loose, pop off the top of the agitator--if there is one--and tighten the bolt that holds the agitator in place. Or, in some models, simply pull straight up and then reseat the agitator. 3 Remove the access panel located in the back of the washing machine by unscrewing the screws holding it in place. This allows access to the drive motor. 4 Press on the drive belt that works the agitator. If the belt moves more than 3/4 inch, tighten the belt to fix the spinner problem. If the belt is worn or cracked, replace the belt. 5 Replace the drive motor, if tightening or replacing the drive belt doesn't fix the agitator. Purchase a new drive motor at a wholesale retailer. Disconnect wiring, remove screws holding motor in place and insert new motor. Screw into place, and connect wiring. 6 Check for any black substance leaking under the washing machine. This might indicate a clutch problem, if the washing machine spinner is not working. Contact a professional repairman to replace the clutch.

Washer doesn't understand that the lid is closed and won't run. I took the lid off and tried to manually push in the swith but no luck. Washer is a Maytag Atlantic MAV6250

Door lock replacement vid and more good stuff

Bonus stuff: Wax motor 101 featuring R11 and Q6 swap out and other cool stuff

Note: both the motor control and the central control has to know that the lock is in place, so the wax motor does 2 things! It locks the door and then sends info back to the central control and the motor control on various models. So the wax motor is crucial. A red wax motor is a new and improved wax motor. What other smart pills have I got? Let see: Neptune washer manuals

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter
