I have a Maytag Atlantis, I've had it for about 12 years. Recently I filled it to wash and after it filled it wont do anything else! I had a repair man out that told me it was the timer, and that it would cost $240.00, and if it were him he wouldn't fix it but he had a washer/dryer set at his shop he'd sell me for $300.00 I got on your site to see if I could find the part and you have it for $83 so now I'm doubting the man that came out how do I know if it's even the timer thats bad? Thanks
ANSWER Hi Diane. The lid switch is part # 22003804. When the unit fills then stops you need to replace it. If at first you need to check it then the two terminals next to the plunger should read closed with the lid closed. If they are open, the switch is bad. Also the terminal next to the plunger and the third terminal should read closed with the lid closed. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. You remove the back cover and lift the lid as then you pull (slide) the switch out and up. It has grooves in the top of the cabinet that the switch guides itself into while installing. Thank You.
