Diagnosing and fixing anything will require you to do some basic things. This will not be fixed by just pushing some buttons. I can only tell you what to do. How to go about it is your decision. Continue?

Yes

This code means that the motor is not being sensed as turning. Does the basket rotate freely if you pull up on it (it floats when washer fills) ?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
It turns easily when lifted

Then you most likely have failed machine control here- I replace them quite often. I would call Maytag as they may repair this free as this failure was a huge problem on many washers that use this particular control. If they don't then the part is easily replaced in about 5 minutes.
