Customer Question
Maytag was her flashing...

Maytag was her flashing F5 and dinging. Any idea what may be happening?

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

About a year old. Model # MVW8835DW0

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

I have no idea what the issue is so I can’t say. Depends on what ERROR message is about. Nothing in the manual gives even a hint.

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

Just need to know if you know anything about what the Error F5 means

Hello, My name is***** is correct that the codes have 4 digits. All the F5 codes are related to the lid lock and lid switch. If you are willing to replace the lid lock it may take care of your problem. If you want to call a repairman you should make sure they bring a W10648012 lid/lock. Merry Christmas!
