Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

My Maytag 9000 Series washing machine won't start up. When I press the power button it just gives 3 quick beeps and then nothing happens -- no lights come on. Earlier it had the lights on but also wouldn't run when we pressed "start." I unplugged it and plugged it back in, hoping it would re-set, but now it just won't even power up at all. Please advise. Thanks!

SOURCE: Will not start

To start unplug the machine power cord for ten minutes or longer, this will drain power from the machine and reset the electronic controls.

If this does not fix the problem check the following:

Check that the water supply at the back are opened and taking water into the machine.

Check that the door latch sensor is not stuck, and that door is well closed that is a frequent problem.

Check the drain hose and the drain lines, ensure that there is no blockage in there.

If this still does not work, then the machine has a faulty part that must be replaced, and must be tested by a qualified technician.

Use the phone number listed on the owner manual if you need to contact the repair service.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite 10.4708 front load washer won't start with new load

Uh oh! It did it again! This time I had to unplug 6 times for one cycle. Seems to be on the last 2 minutes most of the time. Today my husband is taking the control unit and looking for soldering problems. On Askmehelpdesk.com this man told of taking the bottom panel off and there is a little black latch thingy you pull to open the door lock manually. Also he said that the K2 and K4 relays are usually the problem if it isn't a soldering issue on the connectors. ( On the CCU);. He said one of them is usually burned and to clean it off and then switch it with the other one which carries less voltage, therefore doesn't burn. You can use a pencil eraser to do this. My husband told me they did this in the Army for MOose code contacts. He just told lme the soldeirng looks good on the connectors and is now working on the K2 and K4 relays. If you go to Askmehelpdesk.com/appliances you will see these tips are for the Whirlpool Duet whic is apparently the same machine as our Sears Kenmore H4's. Gosh, I hope this helps someone as it sure is not fun trying to track this problem down. I am glad you got Sears to come out. I will NEVER and I repeat NEVER buy from Sears again! Did I mention I wrote a letter months ago when I was having a hard time getting warranty work done.( Which I never did) that I had written to the pPesident, CFO and the Texas Attorney General for Consulmer Protection Division and never got a response from anyone?

SOURCE: Kenmore elite calypso doesn't respond to buttons except cancel

I've had a similiar problem on my calypso. In my case the key pad would go dead after washing or pushing stop after a few minutes. If I unpluged the unit for a few minutes it would work again. This would appear to be in the controller board. I removed the board and inspected it finding no problems. After re-installing the board the washer appears to be working again. My conclusion is that there is a loose connector/connection. I'd suggest you remove and re-install all the connectors on the controller board. This is the board closest to the power chord.

Good Luck, George S.

SOURCE: Hi!

I've had the same problem. I removed the top lit and found some pressure transmitter and a pressure switch. I suspect that the pressure transmitter is use for measuring the waterlevel in the machine. I think the membrane loses its flexibility over the years.
I pulled of the hose from the transmitter and blowed and sucked a few times on the transmitter. After doing this the machine washes without a problem since then.

Hope it helps for you.

It is important to set the size switch setting into the Motor Controller's memory whenever a replacement Motor Controller and or Display Module is fitted
To set the size switch turn the power on at the wall and off at the machine. Press and hold the TEMPERATURE UP button then press the POWER button. SmartDrive will give 4 short beeps and the pattern of LEDs will change.
• Press SPIN SPEED UP button, the SPIN HOLD LED is on for (8.0kg) (650mm wide). • Press POWER to exit this mode.
If this doesn't work let me know

Machine won't work.


Robert. You have a bad water valve OR completely clogged up filter screens on the valve. My past experience with this machine with this type of problem is to replace the valve assembly. part Number W10364988

Washer will not start...indicator lights are on. We have unplugged and tried to start by pressing "cotton/sturdy" and the start/pause. Cannot change settings


Do you hear a double beep sound when depressing any of the other buttons? If so you most likely have a defective key panel. If nothing happens at all, it may be the home control board (inside the control panel). Before you replace the board, try this diagnostics test,
Press and hold the hand wash key and the heavy soil keys for 3 seconds. The display should go to "00" next press the spin only key and the machine should run a quick spin test. When this completes press the "off" key to exit service mode.
Now try the machine, and hopefully you have cleared it's software glitch.
Good luck to you!!

Hi, just read your posting.Now the possible fault could be your display board.When you turn the power on to the machine from the power point do all the lights come on and you hear an audio beep beep , then the lights go out ?If that happens, then do you push start and can not select anything else like water temp or load size?Or do a series of lights light up and it beeps indicating a fault code after you have pushed the power button? Please reply and I can guide you throe step by step the process needed to fix this problem.

I get a PF error. That goes away and shows 52 in the display. The buttons light up, but pressing any buttons does nothing but to make 3 beeps.


PF is Power Fail, means the Power was cut off. PF Power failure Power to the machine has been lost during the last cycle. This may occur on start up of a new machine due to factory testing.

Is it a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW machine? Sounds like it is. I believe you have a Control Board issue; the Control Board has a 5yr warranty. Do you want to DIY a fix or call in a Appliance Repair Tech? Have you reset the 120VAC power on the machine? If not give the Control Board a hard reset by pulling the washer power plug for 10 seconds or so and then re-power up the machine.
I’ll attach the Service Manual link located on this site for reference. See if you can get into Service Mode, try this.
To enter Service Mode, this from the SM.
Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys simultaneously for three seconds or until the control beeps. The Console display will show “00”.

Access Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. The console display will show “ot”

The lid lock will lock and the Quick Wash LED will be lit. Will the machine allow you into Service Mode? If not then it’s time to replace the Control Board. Press the Off button to back out of Service Mode.

Let me know what direction you want to go. Rich

Turn on ok. Press start and spin light blinking and beeping.


Several problems were found
1. the touch panel PCB board had tracks which were damaged by moisture and had it repaired for $50 (Aus); this affected the advance function on the washing machine.
2. Controller motor was replaced with a rebuilt one (since the touch panel kept on shutting down).
3. Make sure that the wire holding the harness reed switch is tight (this I think controls the level in the washing machine).
