MAXIMA MODEL MHW5100DWO ABOUT 5 YEARS OLD

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

YES JUST WANT TO FIND OUT HOW TO RESET CYCLE OR IF THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM

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

We have a Maytag Maxima front loading washer. We were in
Greetings, we have a Maytag Maxima front loading washer. We were in vacation and returned earlier this week. While on vacation I shut the water supply off to the washer to prevent flooding in event of a hose rupture. Upon returning my wife loaded the washer, closed the door and proceeded to start the washer as usual. Unfortunately, she forgot the I had shut off the water supply. The washer only hums and the door is locked so we cannot get the clothes out. She unplugged the washer. I subsequently turned on the water supply and plugged in the washer. All we get is a humming and the door remains locked. Can you guide us on how to get the washer working again? Thanks … read more
