Customer Question

Hi John our maytag mav5057aww is full of water and won't spin, drain, or do anything. The lid proximity switch seems to be good I see the plunger being moved and hear the click of the switch

If you drain out the water manually with a cup and bucket, will the washer refill with water if you start a cycle? Can you check please?

We tried that and nothing. Machine won't turn on at all
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 2 years ago.
OK that's what I figured. You need to make sure the washer is getting power from your house to start. If you definitely have power getting to the washer then your lid switch assembly has failed even though it's clicking still. Below is a link to the lid switch assembly you'd need to order and replace to fix the issue. CLICK HERE for lid switch We are on the honor system here.
