How to Replace the Lid Lock on a Maytag Bravos
Maytag Bravos washers are top-loading units. When the top door is securely closed, the lid lock control is activated and a wash load is able to run. If the lid lock control is broken the washer will not run a cycle. The lid lock from the control panel can be removed and a new part ordered from a Maytag manufacturer or online or brick-and-mortar retailer.
Move the Maytag Bravos washer away from the wall, then unplug the power connector from the wall outlet.
Remove the three screws from the back of the control panel using a Phillips screwdriver.
Lift the control panel toward the front of the washer. Locate the lid lock control connected to the top door of the washer.
Disconnect the wires to the lid lock control using needle-nose pliers.
Remove the screw connecting the lid lock control to a mounting plate, using a Phillips screwdriver.
Lift and remove the entire lid lock control. Reinsert a new lid lock control part into the same position.
Reinsert the screw into the mounting plate to hold the lid lock control in position.
Reconnect the wires to the lid lock control. Lower the control panel back into place.
Reinsert the three screws into the back of the control panel, then reconnect the power supply to the wall outlet.
