maytag atlantis w/m MAV6200AWW needs help to spin
« on: January 03, 2012, 10:21:38 AM »

This problem is about a Maytag Atlantis washing machine, model MAV6200AWW.
It is 10 years old.  Six weeks ago I replaced the lid switch b/c at that time the machine would start up after it had filled with water only if i thumped the lid.  After I replaced the lid switch, that symptom disappeared and it ran the way it is supposed to until a week ago.  The problem i'm having now is that when the machine comes to the spin cycle, it stops and does nothing.  To getting it going i have to PUSH IN horizontally on the lid (thumping it does not work).  Assuming that the lid switch is still good, what else might be wrong with this machine?

thank you.

sounds to me, that there still a issue with lid switch engaging all the way. WHAT DO YOU THINK  AJ.
