maytag washer a9400 not doing nothing
« on: May 01, 2012, 03:03:23 PM »
its an older maytag washer and the lid switch dropped on the spin cycle.  I put it back together and adjusted back switch.  The spring must have been bent cecause it fell out again.  i bent spring a bit on ends to keep it in.  I put it back together and it wont do anything.  I checked the switches for the lid and its getting power and working as it should.

Hi,

Did you check the lid switch fuse to see if it was still good?

hopefully i will fig it out tomorrow with the manual.  i own tanning salons and have 3 older maytags and 5 maytag dryers of the same age.  I am really glad I found this site.  Y'all are great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I will let you know what I find.  Its probably something stupid that I caused.

OK. I promised I would post what I find.  I am good to my word, as hard as this is. ................I found out that I am an idiot.  I checked fuse again and it read continuity fine.  Decided to check current on both sides, uh well only one side.  conclusion. yes i am a halfbaked.   No illegal drug pun implied.  I own tanning salons.  I replaced fuse and it took off and looks like it working fine.  I am still a little confused why continuity is good but fuse is blown.

Thanks for all your help.  I was ready to call in for reinforcements.

Hard to say, did you remove the fuse when you checked it or did you check it in the holder?


Anyway it works, that's what counts.  O0


When that fuse blows I often find the smaller of the two switches at fault. Something to keep in mind if the fuse blows again.


Thanks for the update.
