Re: Maytag Stacking Washer/Dryer Combo. Dryer Model LSE9904ADE Washer Model ? Microprocessor control board 6-3091280 Dac #00N00510001Washer Problem--- Re; Wash Option control -- washer fills with water then stops. The wash cycle will not start until you manually change the Pause setting from 10 to 9 or 8. The washer will run through cycle until it hits spin. Then if you change Pause from 6 to 5, it will start spinning and finish the complete cycle. In other words, the machine will not run through the complete wash cycle automatically.

Pulled Control board and cleaned dust and lint.
What happens when you dont use the pause setting at all?
The wash cycle will not start until you start it manually as described . It will not start with the pause setting on 10.
I understand this but why are you using the pause setting?
Because that is the only way the wash cycle will start after it fills with water. I am refering to the Wash Option Control.
Ok either way it sounds like the pressure switch this is what activates the wash cycle when its filled up. You will need to pop the top on the washer you do this by taking a putty knife and sticking it into the top where the top meets the cabinet where the slit is at go about 2 inches in from the sides and push in the putty knife to release the top do this to both sides then lift up, then you will see this pressure switch it will have a little hose going to it plus you will see some wires going to it thats the pressure switch hand on and i will get a picture for you.
This is the pressure switch.
