If its not the door interlock then the only other possible thing is the control module has failed ....

it does happen on zanussi machine.. is it making a cliicking noise the door interlock.... when you press start .... like click click....

if so then most likely its the control board inside the machine

Maytag 4000 series washer won't start, once you press the start button machine power off..

Power off means a short circuit. Either the PC controller board has a defective part or the safety electronic / shut down protection has indicated a fault and opens to prevent a fire, electrical damage, or other condition.

Turn on ok. Press start and spin light blinking and beeping.

Several problems were found
1. the touch panel PCB board had tracks which were damaged by moisture and had it repaired for $50 (Aus); this affected the advance function on the washing machine.
2. Controller motor was replaced with a rebuilt one (since the touch panel kept on shutting down).
3. Make sure that the wire holding the harness reed switch is tight (this I think controls the level in the washing machine).

Machine won't start and clicks if turned on with door open

Ok, this is the fix:

No payload. Close the door. Press off, then press on. Then enter a program starting by selecting the fabric and the others as usual. Do not press start, instead press the slip button to advance the programme to the very last phase, ie drain and empty. Then press start. It will perform this operation with no load and pump out the “no water”. This part takes 5 minutes. After the 5 mins the programme will end and the machine will beep annoyingly, but the computer will be reset and you can clear the program and use the machine as normal.


I had the same problem. The stupid computer inside remembers the program whilst it’s off and unplugged. What has happened is you accidently pressed start and start again to pause it in very quick succession. This confuses the computer and it thinks that a program is in progress. This is why it wants to close the door. There is no problem with the latch (unless it is a separate problem). You have to let it play out a program to reset it, which is why you can play the very last “drain” segment.


Presumably there’s a way to reset the computer either by a secret button combo or shorting out two pins from the computer box. I don’t know. If someone knows this please tell me.

Good Luck!
