Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer
The washer was halfway through the wash cycle, and stopped; possibly overloaded. I can change the controls to any load or configuration I wish, but the washer just makes a quiet humming sound and does not progress (the timer doesn't count down). The "locked" indicator will not shut off (or let me into the washer), regardless of what I do: change cycles, shut off the machine, or unplug it.
Art, it's possible something is jammed in the pump causing your problem. See if you can put it into a service mode. Power off and on and press chime and xtra rinse together for 3 seconds. Now to do a quick service cycle press temp and soil level together. The washer should take off and do a self diag. It will run the water valves, tumble, dispenser, drain and high spin if you entered it right. If everything passes you will get a PA in the display. If not you will get the error code. You can advance through this test by pressing the spin speed button. If any error codes come up post back and we will try to get to the bottom of it. Catriver..post back.
