could be 2 things 1)try closing the door and banging the machine on the front next to where your door catch goes into the washer if it starts could have a lose wire or be faulty 2)if no1 doesnt work than it will be your mains filter which if blown power doesnt get to your machine if the machine is brand new and has manufacturers warranty then these are covered through the warranty and any tampering will void your warranty though should be covered for no less than a year

Unplug!!! NOW! I drained the water using a common garden hose, fill the hose with water and have some device turning it off like a trigger nozzle on the low end. Detach from the supply and put the supply end in the center of the tub under the softener dispenser. take the trigger nozzle off and watch the water drain without cups and buckets. Then wring out the clothes and put them aside, use the hose trick again for remaining water. Now get under the washer and detach and reattach the brown and white lead input to the rinse cycle motor. She is made in France so be gentle. Plug the machine in and set the machine down and turn it on. Push the >> button until you reach the spin cycle if it starts you have fixed it!! Put the clothes back in open a bottle of wine and try again.

Ok, I figured it out, at least my problem. The short answer is that you need to replace the lid switch assembly, maytag mav7000aww part no. 12001908.
To verify you have the same problem as I do, remove the rear cover to the control panel (three philips head screws and two machine bolts, see http://www.partselect.com/ModelFrames.aspx?ModelID=117917&ModelNum=MAV7000AWW&mfgModelNum=&ManufactureID=1&Selected=52442&Position=2&mfg=Maytag&Type=&Mark=2 no. 14.) Use a volt meter to verify that you have power coming into the lid switch assembly harness (black wire). Use the volt meter to verify that you have no power coming out of the lid switch assembly harness (red and yellow wires.)
To further verify that you have the same problem as I do, remove the wire harness from the lid switch assembly and use a ohm meter to verify that the switch is not allowing power transmission. In the lid closed position (lid switch depressed), use ohm meter to test line-to-motor and line-to-machine connections.
If you verify that you have no power down-circuit of the lid switch assembly using the two methods above, then you have my problem. In this case, you can purchase the part noted at top for less than $25.

SOURCE: Where is the reset button
there is no reset button, the reset for the system is to unplug it for at least 3 minutes from the wall socket, if it doesn't reset then there is a electrical failure of the central control circuit board.
