Hello everyone,

I have a maytag Atlantis MAV 6200AWW washer that stopped during a heavy load.  I restarted the washer, turning the timer to the spin cycle (as that's where it had stopped) and it completed the load.  However, afterward, now it is completely dead.... no fill, no action anywhere on the timer.  I ordered a replacement timer, and still nothing, so I have eliminated that.  I have checked the outlet and have good clean a/c coming in.  I have unplugged it for a few days and still nothing.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!  What would cause the unit to not fill?



thanks

I checked the lid... it seems fine.   Could a clogged water intake cause problems with the solenoid that would cause the whole machine to shut off like this?  I do have a lot of iron in my water.....

Check the lid switch
YES make sure lid switch is good will cause no fill. Also is this part on the lid http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-cam-w10814230-ap5985066.html

Y'all were right, it was the lid switch! EVen though the old one made 2 clicking sounds, when I removed the switch it had a rattling broken part inside. I made a bypass jumper and the machine sprang to life.  Ordered a used lid switch for $9 off ebay, and everything is back 100%.  Thanks for the help!
