Question about Maytag MAV7580E Top Load Washer

2 Answers

I have a Maytag top load washer - model MAVT546EWW purchased from Lowes. The entire led lights blink twice, then the "regular" wash light is lit. This repeats every 20 seconds or so. The washer will only work for every 20 seconds also, then the button must be pushed in again to get the machine to run. Maytag said they never heard of this problem. Can anyone help? Thanks!

This sounds like the electeronic is faulty. Do this. Turn off the machine and unplug it from the power outlet for 5 minutes. Then plug it in and select a cycle. Make sure the water is on and try the spin only cycle first. if it wont spin only then there is a problem in the controller or the motor circuit. Thsi could be something simple like the unbalance switch or something worse like the motor or controller. ensuder the bowl is central. Pull the bowl to the centre. if rthe button you refer to is an overload button then the motor is faulty. A motor overload button measures the motor current in the neutral leg and if it is too great then it pops and stops the appliance.

    I am just now having the exact same problem Lori.I bought the same washer from Lowe's that you did...I tried the above and the spin works so guess it's the overload button any suggestions anybody? Could I possible buy a new controller switch? We've had several power outages through out the summer...but as the machine was always off when it happened,didn't think it could effect it possible the motor overload button is bad? and can be replaced? or is it more economical to buy a new one rather than fix the old so many other electronics these days...I hope would be such a waste of materials and harm to our environment if this is so...also Lori...I noticed if I keep trying to make my beeps at me...and I noticed that before it went kaputz completely it would malfunction from time to time but then straighten itself out..did yours do that? It makes me think the switch went that possible?Help anyone?

    yeah this seems to be a problem with this model.. here is the solution.. maytag did NOT ground the control board located behind the cycle select button, it is a faulty design. a small power surge .. power flickering etc.. will cause this. the control board is "fried" we replaced ours for 130.00 bucks, not a cheap fix, and please INVEST in a power surge protector for this washer!!!!!

Maytag dishwasher mdb7100aws is flashing clean-lightwash-heated dry

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWS which suddenly started blinking the following LEDs: Clean, Rinse Only, Regular Wash, Tough Scrub and Heated dry. Tried cycling the breaker, no help. Tried the key sequences in the troubleshooting sheet behind the kick panel, no help. Then happened to press the Drain/Off button twice. All LEDs went out and am now on my second successful load, fingers crossed. Suspect the control board got latched up somehow.

How reset clean washer reminder on Bravos washer

This is just a factory setting that reminds you to clean the washer to avoid that musty smell. You can buy tablets called Affresh or other similar cleaners for washing machines. They sell these items at Target, Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot. You can also substitue 1 Cup of Bleach in the washer. Then once you add whatever solution you have decided to clean it with you simply select the wash cycle on the machine called "Clean Washer with Affresh" Once you have done this the light should go out. You can also reset this indicator light by pushing the button next to the light that says Reset clean washer reminder. Hope this helps!! :)

Touch pad always lit up...

Yes, if the leds are all lit and no respnse, then your board in the top counsel is faulty. Have you haad any power surges recenlty.? Power surges sometimes mess up computer boards. But yeah, it sounds like its bad tho. There should be led light on unless you start pushing buttons. Have you hit the "off" selection. If nothing turns off the led lighting, it sounds like the board might be bad...hopefully this helps

Blinking lights, unresponsive

I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.
