Door would not lock, stopping the wash cycle
Wax motor was operational but door would not always lock. Rebuilt the latch mechanism with new parts including all three switches. Latch now makes an audible click when it engages, like it did when new.

Door lock wasn't working
There were two parts to the repair - the Dispenser Lid and Bezel was easy - I did it myself.
My wife, who normally would try to do the repair of the door lock herself has been very busy with her condo rental business. It took six weeks to get her to order the parts and then they sat in the box for two weeks before I convinced her to call her appliance repair company she uses for the renatl condos. They did a quality job for only $79.00. When my wife saw what he had to be do to repair the locking mechanism, she was convinced we made the right decision. The Maytag washer is working like new after weeks of manually adjusting the door latch, sometimes a dozen times, before it would lock and do a high speed spin.
