There are a couple of common causes for a problem like this. First is a bad door lock assembly that also damages the machine control board (in the control panel). If this is the case the R11 resistor on the machine control board will be burnt.
Maytag has identified seven resistors that relate to specific components that need to be checked or replaced if the resistor is damaged. Listed here are the resistor identification, the circuit involved, and the recommendation:
R9 / pressure switch / check for loose connections or high resistance on switch contacts; replace pressure switch if necessary.
R11 / door lock wax motor / replace door lock mechanism and machine control board.
R51 / hot water valve solenoid / replace water valve and machine control board.
R52 / timer motor / check for loose relay terminal connections and replace machine control board.
R53 / cold water valve solenoid / replace water valve and machine control board.
R143 / (-) 24 Volt DC / contact was made between neutral and the 24 Volt DC circuit.
R162 / electrical buffer circuit / wire harness and machine control board.
Another common issue is a slow water fill fault. If the washer does not fill within a certain time the control will stop on a fault. Usually when this happens the START button can be pushed to continue the cycle.
Washing machines that won't fill or fill slowly often have a restriction in the incoming water supply -- usually in the screens of the inlet hose washers or the water inlet valve itself. Remove the hoses to inspect this condition. If the water inlet valve screens are plugged, replace the water inlet valve.
