Question and Answers


timer dosent always advance sticks agitate MTW5900TW0 Maytag Residential washer


Thank You for contacting I do apologize for the delay in answering your question.

I do not fully understand the symptom. I assume the washer will not drain or spin when it finishes agitating. If this is not your symptom resubmit your question with additional details.

If the washer will not operate by manually advancing the timer to the spin and drain cycles, the lid switch is likely broken. Your washer is not going to operate in any of the spin and drain cycles if the lid switch has failed. Generally speaking, if you listen carefully while raising and shutting the lid, you should hear a faint click of a working lid switch. If you do not hear the faint click, the lid switch is bad. In order to access the lid switch will require placing the console in the service position and removing the washer cabinet.

Note: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before placing the console in the service position.

There will be a couple of screws to remove at the back of the console securing it to the top. Remove the two screws and then slide the console forwards 1/4 inch and then lift it and hinge it over the rear panel. I added the reset of the instructions in the image below on how to remove the cabinet. Once you have the washer cabinet off you will be able to remove and replace the lid switch.
