Old Maytag clothes washer.
Machine was running well. I lifted the lid to add clothing to the load and the agitator continued to churn even with the lid up. I closed the lid - the machine kept running. Lifted the lid again - machine stopped. Became dead with the lid up or down. No controls work. Makes no noise in response to any adjustment. When I lift and lower the lid I hear a clicking sound from the small white button as it is pushed in and out. Posts say 95% of the time a replacement lid switch is required. ???
Your advice sought. What part # should I buy. Thank you.
ANSWER Hello Robert. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the lid switch 22001682 will need to be replaced in the unit.
