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!

    Thank you very much Leo2! Can I replace the Magnetic switch by myself or it's hard to do and need a professional to do it? Where can I order it? Thanks again. Jeff345.

    I'm having the exact problem with my Maytag MAV5920EWW following a power outage. I also tried unplugging the washer and plugging it back in to try to reset it, but that did not work. I have repairperson coming tomorrow and hope that this is an easy fix?! My washer is less than 1 year old!

SOURCE: My Maytag washer MAV5920EWW is

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.

I have a new Maytag mvwc565fw. The Clean Washer Cycle was interrupted from a power outage and the unit is full of water and the lid is locked (light solidly illuminated). Trying to start any other cycle...


Resolution:If the washer does not accept inputs from the control panel, follow the Hard Reset steps below to reset the control:

Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.

Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.

Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.

Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

Note: If the Hard Reset does not work, there may be an internal failure with the washer, that requires service.

Bocsh 1400 express f21 keeps flashing


This Bosch looks like a Kenmore HE2, and may be made by the same manufacturer.

In the Kenmore HE2 manual it states:
"F" Variables [F4 to F16] (Electrical problem)
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle.
Select DRAIN/SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call for service.

If it's not working still, try asking advice at RepairClinic.com . They have helped me in the past, and they have parts too.

My Maytag washer has a flashing F 15. What does that mean?


The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: * Epic® washer - F05, F07, F09, F10, F11, F13, F14, F15, F21, F22, and FdU
* Epic ZTM washer - F01, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, and F33


To remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.

If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Hope this helps.

    3. After approximately 10-15 seconds
      press Piezo knob several times until pilot light a lit
    4. After ignition, hold down knob for a further 15 seconds before releasing
  1. Check the Pilot light is alight
  2. The flame can be controlled by aperture ©
    Should no ignition occur, repeat the ignition process after 1 minute
    (This could take longer than 10 seconds if the unit has been out of operation for a prolonged period or after replacing the gas cylinder. (Cause: air in the lines)
  3. Once sufficient refrigeration has been obtained in the cooling tank at the MAX position, the control knob should be turned to the MIN position by low outside temperatures or when the refrigerator is only lightly loaded respectively the ambient temperature is below +18c in order to avoid over freezing the contents.
I hope this helps you...

Maytag Dishwasher flashing lights


I have the same problem with the lights flashing on the control panel. It pops up every 4 or 5 months. The only solution I have found is to press the delay/resume button one time then press the drain/off button twice. You may have to hold the keys down for a couple of seconds. This seems to reset something in the panel. Make sure you haven't pressed the 3 second lock button or it won't work.
