Question and Answers


model #MAV6458AWW, washer won't run, believe it's the lid switch, #3, it seems to "bobble" and no be firm. Any other suggestion?


Thank you for your question.

I can understand the switch breaking if someone sat on the lid. I am sorry to hear that happened.

With the switch broken many washers will not go beyond filling with water if the lid is not down or in this case broken.

The anvil (8) on the back of the lid and pushes the plunger back to far and break the ear mounts off the switch. (3)

There are two other parts in that system (7) and (9) that may have broken.

First REMOVE POWER to the washer.

To get into the switch area, remove the 3 screws on the top of the control panel and then tilt out the control panel to get behind to these parts.

If the tabs are broken on the lid switch you will have to replace the switch and be careful when replacing the switch because it is easy to break the tabs.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
