Do you have a full model number so I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker around the front frame of the tub and can be seen if you open the door. Also, if you turn the control panel off so no lights are on and then press start, does the control panel light up?

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.
OK unfortunately these Maytag units are known for the start buttons failing on the touch control panel which is what yours has done. Even if you don't select a cycle, the control panel should at least light up when you press the start button acknowledging that you pushed a button. This means that the start button doesn't know you're pushing the button if you press it and nothing changes and the control panel remains completely dead. Unfortunately you can't just replace the start button, you must replace the entire touch control panel so below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace for your model.

Ok thanks. The only thing is, this happened before, then all of the sudden it started working again after a week
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.
The electronics can be sporadic, but even if it ever fixes itself the problem will come back until you replace the part.
