    That broken piece might be the key to the malfunction

    The switch performs more than just lock the door. It also must send confirmation to the control the the door is indeed locked.

Hi, the 5.9 display means the washing machine capacity (5.9 cu. ft.)
You seems to have a defective lid switch. If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.

Washer will not run or complete a diagnostic.


1. The washing machine needs to be plugged in and in stand by mode with all indicators off.
2. Choose any one button on the washer's console except Power, Start, or Stop. Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds - Release 3 Seconds - Press/Hold 3 Seconds.
3. If the diagnostic test mode has been successfully entered, all of the indicator lights will glow for five seconds with 88 on the time display. (If it didn't work try #2 again One one thousand...Two one thousand...Three one thousand)
4. If there are any saved fault codes they will be displayed. If there are no save fault codes all indicator lights will turn off for a moment then back on with 88 displayed and the automatic diagnostic test mode will begin in five seconds.
5. If you are unable to enter the diagnostic test mode, press the power button and verify that the button you were trying to use operates properly to program the washer's cycle function. There may be something wrong with that function button. Find another button on the control that appears to work and try to enter the diagnostic mode with that button. You may also want to verify that the user interface has a good connection to the washing machine control board at the P11 terminal.
Back to Top
Note: Pressing the STOP or POWER button at any time to exit the washing machine's diagnostic mode.

My maytag commercial washer display a code F26


This error code indicates that the door needs to be opened and closed.
The F26 code may appear the first time you try to use the washer. Open and close the door to clear the display.
The F26 code may also appear if the washer has run three cycles without the door being opened. Open and close the door to clear the display.
If opening and closing the door does not remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.
If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
  2. Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, and the condition above has been checked, call for service.

Will not start


Alright, unplug the machine for 5 or 10 minutes, after plugging the machine in make sure power is off and hold the spin button down for 5 seconds, then off for 5 seconds until all lights light up, if there is serious error a F code will appear, press spin again until it clears, now 88 appears in the display,flashes and starts a diagnostic cycle. Your error will pop if serious in the display stopping the test at which write the F code down and power off the machine, Either the toe panel or at the right side behind the toe panel is a tech manual to decipher the F bomb.
