Have a Maytag Centennial CW that will not spin or agitate, noticed that the door lock is not engaging. This is a chicken and egg question, will the door lock prevent the agitate and spin cycles? or would the speed shifter prevent the door from locking? What to replace first or would one replace both parts?

Yes, the door not locking would keep it from agitating and spinning.

I'd first check for an error code, your tech data sheet is inside the front panel.

I posted the tech. data sheet for your model in post#3 here: Maytag centennial washer MVWC400XW2 Just download it and put into diagnostics to see what error code you get.

Here's the parts diagram for your model: Maytag Washer MVWC400XW2 Repair Parts
