These washers are notorious for getting an injection bladder leak. The baldder is located atop the washer in the imlet hose assembly; here is the part:

Remove the injector(white pointed plastic looking thingy) from inside the old bladder and shove it up into the new bladder ; reinstall it back where it came from.

My maytag stackable waher has stopped working, i think is has something to do with the lid of the wash Model #LSG7806AAE. the dryer is still working

This model has two switches operated by the closing opf the lid.
The small microswitch is a safety device to prevent operation if the larger switch fails in an "ON" position,, something that I have never seen in 30 years but I suppose that it could happen.. Identify the faulty switch after gaining access to the switch housing a t the rear right of the top panel. Pressing on the actuator of each switch should produce a click as you press and release, no click, replace the switch. Do NOT bypass the switches, in the event of an unbalanced wash load, they are needed to stop the machine, otherwise it may shake itself into oblivion!

I have an old maytag model #LA712 top loader. Recently it has started overflowing not stopping when it's filling. This does not happen everytime and it does not leak any other times but when it does what a...

Usually this is caused by the water inlet valve sticking in the open position. If you can catch the washer while it's overflowing, unplug the washer. If the water stops, then the problem is most likely a pressure switch or pressure hose. If the water does not stop, it is most likely the water inlet valve.

Our maytag neptune front load wash machine squeaks right before it changes directions in the wash cycle. what's wrong with it?

Your belt is stretched...........

There is only one belt, you have to access it from the back, removing the center panel. These belts are really tight when you install the new one you have to rotate it on, and you may thing the belt is too small, but it requires force. Some models you can move motor by loosening the lock bolt to gain some play, usually not much if any.

Remember to unplug before service, and watch for sharp metal edges....
