Had a quick power outage while front load washer was running. Now door is locked and I can’t get it to run. I tried rinse/spin cycle, but nothing happened when I pushed start.

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Maytag w10441130D is what my guide book says. Guess about 6 years old

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

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. The site is going to send an automatic phone call offer, it is not from me please disregard the offer. I am not available via the phone.

Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

Could a technician call me soon? It would be easier for me.

sorry if the site offered the automatic phone call offer its not fro me and I am not available for a phone call.]

Did you try the unplug? Is the unit lit up at all? Have you tried putting it on the drain/spin mode since unplugging?
