The reset button is usually built into a switch that resets automatically when the lid is opened and tub recentered, you rmodel doesnt show one, but there is a mention of a 10 amp fuse( if so equipped) on the wire diagram. shows it connected right to the L1 wire(line 1) trace the linecord in and see if it gets you to a fuse. possible a bad lid switch and/ or plunger for the switch, not making contact when door is closed

Unbalanced load stopped machine will not restart why?

On some of the maytag washers when an unbalanced load stops the maching it blows an internal fuse located behind the front panel on some stacking washer and dryer machines and under the counsel on some of the top load machines. ON the top load machines it is recomended that you change the lid switch with the fuse that comes with it.
There are two screws located on each side of the counsel. Remove the two screws and tilt the counsel up and locate the lid switch, fuse assembly. You can check the fuse at this point.

When on spin cycle, Maytag MAV5057AWW vibrates excessively more so than just an unbalanced load. When I open the lid the whole tub and agitator is moving around alot forward and back as well as side to...

make sure you loads are balanced, put heaviest clothes in first... if you can rock it by hand then the legs are not adjusted properly. If you stand 2 feet away from front of machine, jump up and down and see it move the floor is soft and you need 2 sheets of plywood to make 1 1/2 inches put under the machine

Excessive wobble

If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Front load washer doesn't spin

My Maytag® Neptune® washer filled with water, but it won't spin or drain-what now?

Start by making sure the machine is plugged into a live (working) electrical outlet. Then check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if necessary (or check the fuse if you have a fuse box).

Next, inspect the drain hoses and remove any kinks. Take a look at the drain, too - if it's clogged, call your usual drain service person.

Then close the washer door and firmly press the START/STOP button. In a few moments, after the door locks, the washer should begin to spin. (For your safety, the washer will not tumble or spin unless the door is closed and locked.)

If this doesn't work, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900 for toll-free assistance and service scheduling if necessary.

Maytag washer will not spin

If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.
