Mother26, I have a fair amount of experience with mechanics and have repaired a few washing machines and dryers in my past. For me, both components are easy to replace. Your repairman would have an equally easy time. I'd estimate an hour to repair and verify. Your trouble comes in is the $122 for the replacement clutch and the $82 for the tub displacement sensor. And that's assuming there's no damage to anything else so far.
In my case, change the previous owner didn't remove from pockets destroyed the clutch, transmission, and pump. and somehow spillage caused the tub displacement sensor to short. Overall, far too many parts to make repair equitable.
Keep in mind, this is, in the opinion of many, a failed design on the part of Maytag. Ultimately, it's a toss up on how confident you are that your current condition is the limit of your problems.

It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
