Maytag washer not reset after power outage

My Maytag washer MAV5920EWW is not working after power outage. The lights around the control knob flash twice every 15 seconds. When I press down the control knob to start the machine, it works until the lights flash again. I tried unplugging and re-plugging or turn it off, but nothing I tried so far can reset it. A technician checked it and said the control board needs to be replaced. Is there a way to reset it? Thanks a lot!

The technician is right, the control board needs to be replaced. No such reset button for the control board. The only way it can possibly reset it is unplugging it for longer period to forcibly reset the microcontroller but there's no assurance that it will reset. Let the machine sit overnight before purchasing a new control board with part number 21002238.

The washer is only 1.5 years old and has been working fine until a recent power outage. After the poer was restored, the spin cycle quit working. Any suggestions?

Reset the motor is what you must do.

To Reset the Inverter Board: Push the timer knob in so the washer is idle. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes according to the picture above. If no light you probably have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.

According to the instruction book - it appears the machine has been stopped mid cycle then re-started.
Switch machine off, turn control knob to a solid circle symbol (they are after every set cycle). Switch machine back on and lights will flash and program is reset. You can then select wash cycle as normal.
