Question about Maytag MHWZ400T Front Load Washer

Maytag service came out and told me it is control panel Part# W10217425. I washed 4 loads 1 day and came back 4 days later and got 1 load done. Then it wouldn't start and they won't replace. I got mine at Home Depot but, Maytag won't replace. They say it has to break 3 times before they will replace. After Maytag sent someone to fix and they said they had to order part and didn't know when they would be back. I called Home Depot and they overnight sent me part. Now Maytags service says they cant come back for a week and if I put in myself I lose my waranty. If you don't have waranty anymore, I found at Sears parts for $12.45 for board.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
I have tried to work with a few folks on this issue never received feed back to resolution see this post. I feel the issue is caused by one of three possible issues.
A stuck key issue/defective Spin Cycle key making constant contact forcing the Key/LED to cycle thru the Spin Cycle settings. Under normal conditions if you press and hold the Spin Select key it will cycle thru the settings, yours has a mind of its own (defective issue).
A false signal from the Control Board for the Spin Cycle.
A corrosion path issue at the Membrane Pad ribbon cable socket connection between pins 5 and 4. See page 20 of the SM button functionality “Spin” key.
Try to verify that the spin cycle membrane key is not stuck/defective signaling the Control Board to cycle thru the spin settings. I have not experienced this issue but let’s try the Membrane Pad Test to get a start point. See the Service Manual page 15, I have modified the process to make it a bit more understandable at least for me. Make sure the two digit display is not On or Lite.
Press the off button first so there is nothing displayed in the Two Digit display of your FAV6800AW.
Now Enter / Exit Service Mode
To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps. While in Service Mode, pressing the Presoak key will start a membrane switch check that verifies switch operation.
All the LEDs (except Presoak ) can be toggled or slewed by pressing the key associated with the LED or set of LEDs. Do not press the Presoak again during this test.
Press each key once and only once including the Signal Key the on side and the off side, also the UP and Down Arrow key of the LED display. All keys (including the OFF button) must be pressed within 5 minutes for this test to pass. “PA” will be displayed for five (5) seconds once all keys have been pressed and the test is completed (more like PA will be displayed for only a few seconds on my FAV6800AW). Following 10 seconds of inactivity at any point, this test will exit without any display. Let us know the results.
See my additional comment this board has message limit issues.

if there is still water in the machine then you need to drain the water.
this can be done by using a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove the water that way. this will normally unlock the door
also check the wiring to the drain pump this does effect the door. you may aslo try pushing the clear or cancel button for three to five seconds.
i hope this was helpful to your problem.

Testimonial: "I will have to get my hands on a wet/dry shop vac, but the super quick response is greatly appreciated. Hope it works."
If you unplug the M13 connection from the ccu (main control) and the error goes away then replace the MCU (motor control unit) if it does not go away then replace the CCU

SOURCE: Im getting a F20 code
"F20" is a "No Water Detect" error code. This usually means you have very little water entering the machine, or no water at all. The following link explains the error code in more detail and steps necessary to troubleshoot:
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
NOTE: Each one of thes washers comes with a technical data sheet inside. The tech sheet lists all error codes, troubleshooting information, wiring diagrams, diagnostics procedures and illustrations. To access, you need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. The screws are located under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and can be removed. If the tech sheet is not located directly behind the toe panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. I mention the tech sheet, because you may need to refer to it in order to accurately troubleshoot. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you
