SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Removal of front cabinet panel of washer section

Should be two screws on each side of the bottom of the front panel. Takes those out and push the panel up and out. (There are two "tabs?" in the middle of the front panel that lock into the side panels, so you have to push up and then pull out.)

SOURCE: how to remove top panel of maytag washer

Insert a putty knife along the front seam of the washer where the top meets the front panel. About 2 inches in from each side, you will find a retaining clip. Push in with the putty knife and push down while lifting up on the top panel. Repeat this on each side and the entire washer top will lift up, allowing access to the washer interior. Remove the screws holding the front panel in place and remove for full access.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

M maytag dryer model-mdg9700a,has no power infront of control buttom


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You have a older unit. Some parts are no longer available.

Sounds like you have either:

1.) Bad Power Switch - used parts supplier - $27.00.

2.) Control board - remanufactured parts supplier. $90.00.

3.) Bad connector or burner wire/short - Part cost $10.00.

So, here are your options:
1.) Call a service contractor. You will be charged about $140.00 for the service call and diagnostics. Thereafter, tell you the parts are not on the service truck. Unless it is a short.
2.) Locate a service technician that works on the side and charges you parts plus $65.00 labor.
3.) Purchase a new unit. Go into the website; "Sears Outlet Stores", scratch and dent store. You will save several hundred dollars on a new unit and receive a one year warrantee.
4.) Check out Habit Stores and used appliance stores.

My daughter has an Amana ARGS7650SS. How do I remove the display panel to get at the control board?


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Are you sure it is the control board?
This part is no longer available unless you go on Ebay. It will cost you $170.00. The part number is 31944801.

If you elect to replace the part, make sure you ground yourself by touching bare metal. Static electricity will knock out the board.

Ok, There are side panels on the main control panel, these pop off. There is a backing plate that should fall off. There are small screws holding the control board on.

Be careful not to shoot from the hip. Too many people start replacing control boards and other expensive components spending hundreds of dollars, when the problem could be just a simple $12.00 thermal fuse.

You may consider going to Sears Factory Outlet (Scratch and Dent) and save a couple hundred dollars on a unit and receive a one year warrantee as well.

Tell me what is going on and the model number. It may be something simple.

My mayage centennial washer is agitating before the water begins to come in , how do I fix it?/

We had the same problem with our Maytag Centenial Washer. I simply removed the Auto Fill Sensor, cleaned the contacts with Deoxit contact cleaner and problem solved. All was done in less than 20 minutes.

Washer won't change gears from water fill to agitate

Hi and welcome to FidYa, I am Kelly,
If it does not agitate or spin suspect the lid switch. Listen for a microswitch click as the lid just opens or closes. No Click = bad lid switch.

If it spins then the lid switch is fine and there is a problem with the water level control pressure switch or possibly the control.

Since you did not include a model number this is my best guess for a 3.2 cu ft machine

This lid switch is item 6 this link:

The water level control switch is item 4 this link:

The timer item 7 of the above link can also cause this symptom. You must elimiate the water level control as a possible cause first. There is a FOLDED wiring diagram in the literature packet insde the top panel 3 x 5 envelope you can use to jumper the wires on the water level control switch. If the motor agitates then the water level switch is the problem. If it does not agitate it can be the timer or the motor. (More troubleshooting required via the wiring diagrams following power through the circuit to the motor.)

At this time I think you may just have a water level control switch problem. If you do end up replacing it... the wash tub must be empty or it will overflow when testing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

We just got a brand new MayTag Modle # MHWE200XW00 today. We cannot get the washer to start due to error codes which are, F6, and E1. What is the problem?

It is a communication error between the CCU and the MCU. It could be just a poor or loose connection or either the motor control or computer control. try unplugging it for 5 min then plugging it in again.

What is the error code dS for Neptune Maytag Washer MAH8700AWW?

Please advise me on any recalls and technical information involving error code 3E during a wash load, which appears related to be a faulty control panel. My machine is always shutting down each time it reaches the rinse cycle. Numerous consumers have been complaining about this same model at Replacement of the control panel is expensive at an average cost of 298 dollars and appears to be the corrective action for other consumers with error code 3E. Over current is not being detected at the motor. I'm disappointed with the quality of this washer considering I purchased it in 2005 for over 1,000 dollars. This problem has forced me to use a local laundry mat to wash my clothes. This error code is not listed in the User manual.

My 2005 highlander has the knobs that control the heating and coolinf fan, temperature and vent. The temperature control knob is randomly changing to hot when it is set on cold and visa versa when you turn...

Hello, and welcome to FixYa, Please allow me to assit you.

The issue that you are having is indeed in the control assembly. Yes, it does cost over 600 dollars to replace it.

However...if you have any soldering skills, or know someone that does have soldering skills, you can fix this problem yourself.

All that is wrong with the controller is a broken wire going from the small printed ciorcuit board that the knob is located on, to the controller's main PC board. Removal of the controller, and a disassembly will show you the broken wire. Just solder the wire back to the terminal that does not have a wire on it will fix you right up, AND save you 600 dollars!!!

Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice today.

My maytag Performer Heavy Duty Washer will not stop filling with water. Is there a sensor control or fuse or something I can do myself? help

Yes there is a sensor for water level. If you open the top lid of the washer (The entire top of the washer), use a small flat-head screwdriver inserted in the middle of the front metal panel where it meets the top metal panel (use a flashlight to see the clip inside. Push in on the black metal retainer clip and simultaneously pull up slightly on the top metal panel to lift it up. The top panel (which includes the top access door) will hinge at the back of the washer frame and will allow for full access to all internal parts associated with water level sensor at the tub itself. There is a small plastic nipple that comes up from the rear left (as standing in front of the washer like when you wash clothes) of the outer tub. This nipple should have a small clear rubber tube on it secured with a small spring hose clamp (use a pair of needle nose pliers to squeeze the clamp to get it off or on). The hose runs up to the back of the control panel (the part on top that has all the dials in it. To open the control panel to see if the hose is connected to the sensor, gently lower the top panel of the washer again and look at the very top of the control panel and remove the three screws that hold the face plate on and then tip it back (towards center of the top of washer) on its face and check to se if the other end of the hose is connected to the back of the water level sensor. The tube is clear so you can see if there is any wear (a hole) or a clog in the hose. Either of these problems will stop the pressure to get to the sensor and make it so that the washer will not know that the level is where it should be. IF the hose is worn, cracked, clogged, or was a hole in it, you will want to replace it with a new one. You can save a lot of money by just going to a local hardware store and get something that is fairly close to it will work fine. Should only be a few dollars. Also, check to see if you can look into the plastic baffle plate in the outer tube and see if it is plugged which will also cause the same result in blockage. Lastly if all that checks out then the problem is with the sensor itself which requires a replacement of it from an appliance parts center near you.

My husband stacked my dryer on top of the washer today with the kit purchased with it. Now my washer has the control lock light on, I can't find my instruction book. How do I get the control lock off?

The following link explains how to correct a control lock problem on a front loader washer:

If this is a Maytag (which is the image you have this posted under) these instructions still may apply. The newer model Maytags are manufactured by Whirlpool (makers of the Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet) and many of the conrol features are the same. I suspect that in the process of mounting the dryer one of the front panel control buttons may have been leaned against and locked the controls.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this resolves your problem.
