Customer Question

Hi I just replaced the lock switch on a maytag washer. Getting a DU code. That means the control board cant tell if the door is unlocked. Its like it still thinks the old broken one is in there. Is there a way to factory reset the control panel?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: MVWB300WQO (or D)
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: no I replaced the part and can hear it trying to lock. So the signal is getting to the lock but the signal back in not is my guess. Brand new part

If you replaced the door lock and still getting this message then the control board will need to be replaced.
