Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag Bravos washing machine. It just sits there with the sensing light flashing after hitting start.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

8 yrs? Model MVWX655DWO

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

Yes

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

Can't think of anything. It does have an unfinished load in it.
