Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag Epic Z washer we bought in 2008. It didn't complete the wash cycle yesterday and gave us a F1 message

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

9 years old MHWZ400TQ

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

If I can

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

That error is a main Central Control Unit Failure. There has been a major hardware failure on that board and that is an unrecoverable error. You can try to unplug it for a minute and plug it back in, but if there error comes back you need to replace this board. CLICK HERE PART remove the top of the unit and it is off to the right hand side to install the new one. CLICK HERE VIDEO
