Our front load Maytag washing machine Model MFW9600SQ0 Type

Our front load Maytag washing machine Model MFW9600SQ0 Type 199-717WT/WT
has the control locked button with the red light on. No other buttons will work - we have turned the power on and off to see if this changes anything with no success. What could be wrong?


Here is what you need to do. (from the tech sheet)

1. Press PAUSE/CANCEL button on the touch-pad twice.

2. Drain the unit, then check that the drain hose and drain

pump filter are clear of foreign objects.

3. Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different

cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to

confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding.

4. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

5. Check harness connections. (requires that you access the CCU ans know how to do electrical testing with a volt ohm meter)

6. Plug in washer or reconnect power.

7. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any

Please let me know the outcome of these tests (except for #5 & 7)

Thank you.
