The problem that Ron discribed (press the switch with a screw driver and the machine runs) is exactly my issue. Do I need to replace the switch? or the plastic piece on the door? or is there an adjustment to be made?
If I need to replace the switch, is there a post to the instructions on how to do this in the forum?
(ps. expect a couple bucks in the beer fund, this forum has been a great help so far)

UPDATE: being that no one has answered (and having a wife like the other guy) I ran out and bought the switch and plastic piece that pushes on the switch ($20 and $.69 respectively). While buying the switch (and small talk) I learned that Maytag has made changes to my switch to correct what seems to be a faulty design that frequently fails. The kit (switch) came with switch, push rod and instruction for replacing the old switch and push rod (as oposed to only the switch or rod seperatly). I will update this post tomarrow once I have installed the parts incase this helps someone else...
2nd UPDATE: After reading the instructions, I discover listed that the plastic hing (a plastic axel pointing off a clip in corner plate of the lid, there are two of course) can wear down causing the gap and/or the plastic sleaves that pop in the corners that these axels ride on can wear or break (as in my case one broke) and could actually be the reason my "atlantis" switch wouldn't function. To resolve this issue for the moment, I pulled out both plugs and revered sides on them (the left to the right and right to the left hole) and they are working fine this way now.
All I can say is, thank You Mr Samurai for putting up this forum, I will be paypalling some money over as a thanks (I know the forum software alone cost you $100 plus hosting so it's only fair to give after taking something from it) Thank You!!!!
