The control center on Maytag Model #MFI2266AEB appears to be locked. How did it get locked in the first place and how do we unlock it?

    Apparently if you run the water for more than 2 minutes, it locks it up. That has happened to me too. You need to reset a code but I don't know how to do it...been waiting to hear from someone else on how to do it!

Door Panel Locked
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue pressing Freezer "-". You will see PE _ _ _ _.
Press Freezer "-" until PE # # # # shows on the panel.
Using Freezer "+" to move cursor, Refrigerator "+" and "-" to change numbers, bring all numbers to "0". Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. Unplug refrigerator for 45 seconds, never beyond 1 minute or you'll have to start over.
Look inside refrigerator door and locate the serial sticker. To the right of the serial number is the CODE ####. Plug in your refrigerator.
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue to press Freezer "-". Using the same method as above, enter the four digit CODE number you found on the serial sticker. Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. You have just reset your panel. Unplug for 45 seconds. Plug in refrigerator and you should now have full use of your door panel.
This unit has a built in safety timer mechanism. If it dispenses water for two minutes, it assumes it is flooding your house and shuts the panel down. If you are filling a pitcher of water, just stop dispensing halfway through to reset the safety timer.

If the Control Lock feature has been enabled, the Control Lock light will flash 3 times indicating that it is activated. To turn off Control Lock, press and hold the Options key that says "Control Lock Hold 3 Sec" under it for 3 seconds. If the dishwasher has a dedicated Control Lock button in the Options selections, press and hold CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds.
NOTE: You may need to disable Sleep Mode by pressing either Start/Resume or Cancel, or by opening and closing the door before you are able to turn Control Lock off.
NOTE: If your model requires you to press and hold PROSCRUB UPPER, 4 HOUR DELAY or BOTTLE WASH to lock the controls, the Control Lock light will be on when Control Lock is active.

How do I unlock the control buton on my maytag front load washer model MFW9700SQ0.


The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that enables the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls and accidentally starting the appliance. This can usually be reset and does not require a technician.

With the lock on, the control panel is disabled and you cannot use any of the controls, except the button to unlock it. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, leaning against the control panel, or pressing and holding the wrong button. This is usually not an indication of a malfunction.

If this is a Whirlpool manufactured front loader, the following link explains how to lock/unlock this feature:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608801-control_panel_lock


These instructions are printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual.

If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control button issue (such as an operator console problem or main control board issue).

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

NOTE: This model Maytag is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions do apply.

Unlock water and ice machine


OK from what I understand for some reason ice and water appears to be locked. This information is in the service manual for your model but also results in test that you will need to do there at the dispenser control. It will be listed on page 108 of manual and section 2-8 of the manual. I will assist you if you like, Sea Breeze

Maytag MAF1300AAW Error code 4. The machine starts to fill then drains which is repeated several times before eror code 4 appears.


Hi this searstechtoo I did some research on similar american models and will paste what I found for you.
Will Not Lock
• Door not all the way closed or not properly
aligned. Possible laundry load is too large to
close door.
• Place washer into Service Mode and check for
diagnostic codes 4 &18.
• Perform Board Output Test. Check door lock
system.
• Check electrical connections at lock switch
assembly and machine control board (CN2).
Cn2 is a thermistor used in a wax motor to control the lock and unlock feature of the door.
I would start at the lock and trace the wires then unplug and replug them.
Thanks SearsTechToo
