The unit will not start. We can select different modes of operation, but it doesn't come on when hitting the start button. Also, we noticed the clean light did not illuminate when cycle was complete.
Answer Hello Jeff,
This sounds like a control board failure. The touch panel could also be bad but I would only replace the control board first as this could possibly solve the entire issue since the control board will cause strange behavior in the display panel. The part number for the board is going to be dependant on the first two digits, (series number or run number), of the serial number on the units' I.D. tag. If it is 32 or lower, the part you will need is W10218822. If they are 33 to 35 you will need to order part number W10218828. If they are 36 or higher you will need to order part number W10218834.
I have a Maytag mdb4651aww. The light near light wash and hi-temp dry are very dimly lit and the only functionality I can do is to cycle between medium and heavy wash and to lock/unlock the unit (by holding the lock button for 3 seconds).
I flipped the breaker to reset the power, but the problem remains with the dimly lit lights when power is restored. The unit will not turn on. The unit DOES click and secure closed when closing, so I assume the latch is good. Can you please advise what could be going on and what parts I need to fix this problem?
Answer Hello Jonathan,
I would first open the control panel and look for signs of moisture. The issue you are describing sounds like the seal 99003222 around the dry vent has allowed moisture to enter the control area. If this is so, the seal MUST be corrected before correcting the issue it caused, otherwise, the new parts installed to correct the initial complaint will be destroyed by the moisture also. I have seen the control panel 6-919818 warp and cause the seal not to seat. Once the moisture issue is corrected, the control board will most likely require replacement. As long as you clean the traces on the ribbon cable, the membrane switch shouldn't have to be replaced.
Hello unit fills pumps then stops after 3 tries i have replaced thermostat and heater as recomended,but still the same.thx
Answer JohnG., Does the wash motor run and circulate the water ? or does it fill and drain only ? and how long does it run? You should run the diagnostics, and board output tests in the Tecah Data sheet,located ij a plastic bag, taped to the backside of the kickplate panel.
