Maytag bravos xl wont...

Maytag bravos xl wont turn on. completely dead with a load inside. the tope is locked

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

4 or 5 years. MVWB950YG

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

Would like to - having someone else do it I may as well buy a new washer!

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

No.... we replaced the part that spins a couple years ago - it was so loud sounded like a plane taking off. That fixed it but we need to do it again...

that's what I was thinking - is it difficult to replace?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
In the diagram is the part the one marked #1?

yes, and its very easy to replace. there are 3 screws that holds the console cover on.. you can see them on the back of the cover

ok thanks. I found one on ebay, refurbished for $50.... think I'll try that. this washer has been a lemon!

wow! that's cheap. Those controls are common issues with that machine... Get you a good appliance surge protector to plug the machine into because they do help
