SOURCE: REMOVAL OF TOP AGITATOR ON MAYTAG WASHER

i believe all you have to do is put you fingers underneath it grab the sides and pull up,that will remove the whole agitator,if you want to change the dogs,pop off the top fabric softener dispenser and take out the 7/16 bolt and remove middle section,change your parts and put it back the same way you took it apart

SOURCE: how do I get top of my washer..Maytag Centennial

This model Maytag is actually manufactured by Whirlpool. To access the lid switch on this particular model, all you should have to do is remove the operator console. The console has a retaining clip on each side holding it to the cabinet top. To release these clips, simply take a putty knife and slide it under the left and right front corners of the control panel push straight in towards the back of the washer. The clips will depress, allowing the operator console to be lifted up. The lid switch is mounted next to the left lid hinge. Refer to the "Top and Cabinet" parts illustration, Item 6 at searspartsdirect.com:


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MVWC400VW1/3048/0153200?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=MVWC400VW1

Some other websites you may refer to for parts include:

pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

NOTE: If you model number does not cross reference to these sites, use the part numbers fromthe Sears websites as your search criteria. Often, the model numbers may not be included on some websites (newly added models), but the part numbers will.

HINT: In some cases, what may appear to be a bad lid switch, may only be an actuator adjustment. The acutator on these models is the rod attached to the left lid hinge. You can bend the rod slightly to adjust the contact with the lid switch, or it may be tightened as necessary. If the switch toggles (clicks) by hand with the actuator rod removed, the switch typically is not bad.

If you need to remove the entire cabinet to access under the lid, the following link explains how:

If you need further assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

SOURCE: want to disengage lid lock on maytag centennial

I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken. If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White, and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the electromagnetic switch.
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
GOOD LUCK

Repair manual Where I can download the repair manual for the maytag centennial washer


This is a manual. Since there are so many versions, you might need to search for the appropriate one. I searched for "Maytag centennial top load washer repair manual". There was a Maytag site, but download was very slow. http://applianceassistant.com/ServiceManuals/8178628_ml-3_maytag_centennial_top-load_washer.pdf#zoom=100#scrollbar=1#toolbar=1 http://applianceassistant.com/ServiceManuals/8178628_ml-3_maytag_centennial_top-load_washer.pdf

There are two hinges at the back, just remove two screws on top then push the top toward the front about 1'' or 1.5'' then lift it up.

The hot water will not fill


Please check the INLET to the hot water line. It could be clogged.
of so remove and flush or replace valve, if there is no supply to the valve it can be related to the control panel.

New Maytag washing machine, but hot water only comes out in pulses. Cold water works fine. Unsure what's wrong.


Check the hose washer on the washer end of the fill hose. (there is probably a screen in it that may have dirt in it. Clean it if this is the case) Are you positive yout hot water valve is turned all the way on?

You may have to remove the valve stem to check the washer which may have come loose.

Turn the water off before you take the top off the valve!!!!

If you need more help, let me know. I want to assist you.
