Maytag LAT5005AAE washer
« on: November 28, 2011, 08:48:46 PM »
I am working on this 1995 model Maytag washer. It will not agitate or spin. It was supposedly agitating but not spinning or draining for a week or so but now it also will not agitate. All it will do is fill with water. No humming or any other noises from the motor and the motor is cool to the touch. Unhooked the wires from the motor blue, white, yellow, red, and black. Black measures 120 VAC with timer in spin position and no power on any other wire. With all this wires hooked to the motor I read 120 VAC on all of them.


Bad motor? part # 12002351

Did you take a look at the Lid Switch & Fuse, part # 22001682

The fuse was fine, no power on the brown wire on one side of it or the white wire on the other side. Black switch had power on both sides. White switch had power on red and on black but no power on white which was the middle wire. I am not very familiar with these types of lid switches. Just from the information I told you I thought the lid switch was ok so I went down to the motor and started testing. If I am overlooking something please tell me.

That white switch is known as the lid check switch, part # 207166
Remove it and examine the red button on it. It should be spring loaded and you should hear an audible click when you push the button. If the fuse is blown the washer won't fill, if it won't agitate then that small micro check switch is the usual suspect on that washer. Very common failure on these washers.

Looking at diagrams it appears I should be getting power from the yellow wire off the check switch down to the yellow wire on the motor. Does this sound correct?

Sometime mechanically the whole lid switch assembly is wankers but mostly it is the check switch if it fills but won't wash.

For testing I have a check switch I will try and if that works I will replace the entire assembly. I will ohm it out first just to see if it is working properly when opening and closing the lid.

Sometimes the entire switch assembly needs to be adjusted a little bit if it's slid out of place.
I see far more problems with this type of lid switch then with the motors.

I am going to check it out again this evening and verify the two switches are ok on the lid switch assembly. I was still curious if the black wire at the motor is the only one I should read 120 or if I should be getting the reading on other wires.

Ok, hooked up cheat cord on motor and made it agitate, reversed polarity and she spun and drained fine.  Run it in spin for about 10 minutes and motor never overheated. Unplugged the cheat cord waited a few minutes and plugged it back in and started spinning fine again so motor is definitely good.

Tested the water level control and verified when is stopped filling that it then sent power out like it is suppose to.

Ohm'd components on lid switch and all checked fine. Hooked wires back up, started a cycle and it filled fine and timer kept running and clicked but no agitate. Used meter and verified power is going through the lid switch assembly correctly.

Unplugged black, blue, red, white and yellow and started the cycle back and ALL wires had 120 VAC even the red one.

I am not thinking motor or lid switch anymore but leaning towards the timer so I will pick one up friday at lunch and try it. Any other ideas?

Sound to me like the timer is going to be it.
