Thank you! If you turn the timer to an OFF position with the door closed, does it stop running?

With door closed, it runs in all off positions

If it runs when the timer is off, then the contacts in the centrifugal switch on the motor are welded together and the motor will need to be replaced.

Maytag: Model#MSB27C2XAW00 S/N: HR40415123. A few days ago,
A few days ago, the lights began to flicker when either door is opened. I changed the filter (which I'd just changed about 3 weeks ago) and held the filter button for 3 seconds. Did not stop he flickering. I've never done that before. Normally, after I replaced the filter, the Order and Replace icons disappeared and "good" appeared on the screen. This time, "good" appeared on the screen. The lights stopped flickering, but began to flicker later on. I tried the 3 second reset several more times. The lights stopped flickering, but began to flicker, again, after awhile. Finally, after about 6 "reset" tries, the lights continued to flicker each time the door/s were opened. Just wondering what other components might cause the flickering. … read more
