Hi, my name is Peter. "SE" code stands for a keypad is held down for longer than 10 seconds. If you were not holding down a button then you have a defective key pad.
And there is not a way to reset it?
light on the inside of the microwave works, nothing else does because it doesnt allow you to press any buttons
It will not allow any buttons to be pressed because it thinks one is already being pressed.
whats the most likely part that needs to be replace, the keypad part, or some part connected to it
The key pad.
If you have the serial # XXXXX can provide the part # XXXXX where to purchase.
whats the part name from Maytag, or part number...is it the Switch Membrane
DE34-00231A switch, membrane. It can be ordered from www.reliableparts.com

That is the text from the tech sheet that should be located behind the control panel inside the unit.
I wasn't lucky enough to have a tech sheet that included that
They are usually tucked right at the bottom below the board or up behind the grille.
