Customer Question
Hello... Jim here in Philly...
Hello... Jim here in Philly. I have a Maytag Top Load Bravos 5.0 Washing machine. A little gray piece fell into the washer. It fits into the lock. the washer won't work, unless I insert this into the slot. It looks like it snapped. No pressure was put on the lid at all. When the lid lifted up, it fell into the washer. How can I fix this? Jim
