Do the following:

  1. Check the power from the wall outlet or the branch circuit itself.
  2. Check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
  3. Check the wiring connections of the dishwasher from the house wiring.
  4. Check the door switch. Remove the control panel cover or the interior liner of the door whenever it is applicable.
  5. Try by-passing the switch. If the unit powers on replace switch completely.
  6. Check the timer or selector switch. replace if defective.

Maytag maxima codes F06 and E02: Tried doing a spin/rinse/drain on an empty machine. Timer seems tpo be working but cannot hear water filling or barell spin. tried to shut off and door is now locked.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
POWER/CANCEL press for to cancel the error codes.
First to unlock depending on model. There will be a pull tab either under the lower kick panel, behind the filter cover, or under the top panel. Pull this tab to unlock the door. Now you can remove the clothes and water. Refer to the owners manual for the location of your emergency door pull tab.

Door Switch
You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace.
Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.+fuse thermal +c.breaker

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher that is approximately 2 years old. It has been working fine up until now. It has no power at all, no lights etc. I have checked all the power breakers and...

This dishwasher does not have an internal fuse in it unfortunately. Check for power to the dishwasher and if it definitely has 120 volts you need to order and replace the touch control at the top of your door on the dishwasher. This part common fails and cuts power to the entire unit.

Good luck

I have power at the plug, but the electric dryer will not turn on. Is there a fuse in this unit to stop the power, this is a maytag med5700tq

Good day,
No fuse, sorry.
Make sure there is 230 volts at the dryer. (careful, 230 kills).
If so unplug the machine
1. The door switch is bad, you will need a vom meter to test it for continuity. Power goes to the door switch first.
2. Push to start switch, if your model has a separate one. if not...
3. Possible bad timer contacts not sending power to the motor.
4.Open circuit in the motor.
