Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag washer MVWC200XW#1. I have gotten an F2E1 error code: "stuck key." I do not understand what this is and what I can do about it. thank you, *****: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is a Centennial and it is 1-2 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't know. The basic problem is that it will not run. If you just press start, the lid lock goes on and the sensing light goes on but then there is a short turning/grinding noise and the lid lock starts blinking and will not go off until you unplug.

On that particular model basically all you can do is try to reset the control by unplugging the washer for 5 minutes and plugging it back in , if after that you keep getting that particular error code the main control has failed and will have to be replaced. The stuck key error on that model is a little misleading as there are no keys but what its registering is the rotary dial built into the control board has failed.
