Customer Question

I have a Maytag Bravos XL washer. It keeps giving me an error message "DU". I think this means it won't lock. How do I fix this? I try to turn off and reset but it just keeps coming back with the message.

Hi, try unplugging the machine for 2-3 minutes. That may possibly reset the control. Doubtful but it's worth a shot. You have a faulty lock. You will most likely need to replace it if unplugging it does not reset it. If you're extremely handy, you can make this repair yourself. You can get the part from any local appliance parts house or from sears parts. I work on the honor system here @ Just Answers.
