Customer Question

Maytag front load washer won't go into spin. I did check to see if there was anything in the drain pump and was clean. I was told it could be the motor control board.
Am I right?

hello, welcome to just answer. my name is XXXXX XXXXX and i will be happy to assist you with your problem. Yes , this is the most likely problem. If you remove the rear cover of the control board there is a tech sheet found inside that will tell you how to test the motor board.

these were big problem on these machines and depending on the series of the washer there was a revised motor and board to replace these. please get me the serial number and i will see what motor and board you have.

I was looking at the power light. No the door lock light is not coming on. What next?
Expert:  S.E.Thomas replied 5 years ago.
remove the 3 screws found along the top of the control panel and fold the control panel forward. It will unclip from the top and lay down. you will now see the machine control board on the rear control panel cover. looking at the board you will see a black relay near the bottom in the center. you need to look VERY close at the resistor right to the top side of the black relay box. the relay is about 3/4 of an inch wide and about a 1/4 inch thick. The resistor right above it is most likely burnt. Please check it and let me know what you find.
