Customer Question
The washer starts additional...

The washer starts additional cycles automatically after it has completed a full cycle. The sensing light continues to blink when cycle has finished. Maytag Type 588-20; Model # MVWX500BW0; Serial # C33930081.

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

Power Wash System, Low Energy. Approximately 6 to 7 years old.

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

If it is feasible we can, however, we are trying to find the problem first.

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

Not at this time.

The only thing that can cause the washer to fill after the cycle has finished is the main control board itself inside the control panel. That obviously could cause the sensing light to blink as well. Try to unplug the washer for 5 minutes if you haven't tried that already to see if the board will reset. If you still have issues, the main control board will need to be replaced I'm sorry to say so below is a link to the part.

The 27.00 dollar charge will not be honored. The application indicated that the 27.00 dollar would be charged at the completion of this transaction. We are not authorizing that charge to be honored at any time.

I'm not sure what you mean. $5 is charged before you can start the question. The $27 is charged once you read the answer.
