We have a maytag washing machine - model KAWE777BWHI. It filled, then would not rinse or spin. Dead quiet. Checked ALL cycles - would agitate, but, then just stops when gets to the rinse or spin cycle. Clicked the timer through all the little steps between the agitation and the rinse, spin - no result. Dead quiet. We thought it was the timer - replaced it. No effect. Any suggestions? What else should we replace? Gotta love it....filled with water and dead in it's tracks!

Or just the pin that depresses it broke off the lid itself... but probably lid switch. Easy change out.

Great! These switches often break at the screws or the bodies separate. When I was on my own I'd either bypass the thing or reglue things to get them working if I couldn't change the switch that day or the cust couldn't afford it, can't do that now (employer rules on safety) but they are not expensive if it fails again.
