Customer: replied 8 years ago.

My Maytag is a model LAT8626AAE. It stopped before it filled completely. I check the wall outlet and determined it was working then I checked the lid swtich and it was fine.


What do you think the problem is? And, how can I get it started again?

Expert:  Kelly replied 8 years ago.
Did the motor start when it quit filling or did the whole thing quit?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
THe whole thing quit.
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 years ago.
Okay, can you remove the two INSIDE phillips screws from the top of the timer console and fold the timer console forward. UNPLUG THE MACHINE FIRST!
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Ok. THe what's next?
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 years ago.
On the black plastic piece that the lid switch is hooked on, there is a small fuse. Can you see if that fuse is bad?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
The fuse is black inside. So, I guess it burned out. Can it be replaced with a car fuse ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 8 years ago.
No, it is a small (1 amp) fuse and will need to be changed with the same rating and also the little white check switch that is mounted next to it. It is cheaper to replace the whole assembly rather than those components. The part number is XXXXX and is available at or from your local parts retailer.
