Hi, My Maytag Maxima washer was giving an error message (E01 F09), I looked it up and found that it meant that it wasn't draining properly. I opened up the machine and emptied the trap underneath, and put everything back together. Now the machine looks like everything is ok - no more error messages and beeps normally - but it doesn't start when you hold the start button! The panel is lit up normally.

Hi, The fix suggested did nothing, and the follow ups received no replies. Not happy with this service.

I did not see any follow ups from you.

Please do not rate me until we are done.

Don't know why you didn't see the replies, I tried twice. The machine is the same as it was, when you push the start button you get the same beep that you always get when starting, but the cycle doesn't start.

Ok do you have the tech sheet from the machine?

Ok, done. Problem was, when I disconnected the front to get at the trap, two connectors (not sure what they're called, bundles of wires with a connection at the end, supposed to connect inside the front panel near the lock) worked themselves loose. I guess they are the sensors for the front door. Reconnected them and now it seems to work. Thanks.
