MAYTAG
« on: January 16, 2009, 01:21:48 AM »
Started a load and it started to fill, then stopped. had problems with the lid switch before (open) full of soap mung. now it blows the switch fuse; I suspect the switch finally shorted on me. Just thought I would confirm it with someone more knowledgeable and experienced in the matter and seek a possible manual for this model. Thanks for any help and direction.

Model LAT9700aaw

When those fuses blow its usually the micro switch in the lid switch assembly.

I have attached a pdf with some information on your style lid switch.

If it blows the fuse I would replace the lid switch assembly too.

Enter your model number in the parts list search box on the left side.

Your looking for one of these,

I pulled the switch apart (just for giggles) and found all three contact points burnt and virtually welded together. Sooo, I cleaned them up with a points file and put it back together (for a temp fix) new switch is ordered. washer works well for now. I think maybe I've got toooo much time on my hands, but the 'cleaning fairy' is happy for now.
