Washer will not turn on and no power buttons are lit up
A washer series by Maytag with a low rate of customer satisfaction and a high rate of failure.
User Control and Display Board
To determine if the user control and display board is defective, try pressing the buttons on the control panel. If some of the buttons work, but others do not work, the control and display board might need to be replaced. Additionally, if the display is not working, check the power to the user control and display board. If the user control and display board has power, but it isn’t working, replace it.
The timer is frequently misdiagnosed—before replacing the timer, first check all of the more commonly defective parts. To determine if the timer is defective, consult your washer’s wiring diagram and use a multimeter to test the timer for continuity.
The line fuse blows if the washer circuits are overloaded. If the line fuse blows, the washer won’t start. To determine if the line fuse is at fault, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the fuse does not have continuity, replace it. In addition, you should investigate and resolve the problem that caused the fuse to blow. Check for shorted out components such as the wires, motor, or drain pump. If you don’t resolve the underlying issue, the new fuse will blow too.
@Lesley Christie ,
Check the washing machine's control board for fuses mounted on the board. They may not look like what you think fuses should look like, so look for components with a designation beginning with F written on the board next to the component, e.g. F1
Usually the power for the pump comes via a relay or solid state switching device (not sure regarding your model if it is as shown above) mounted on the control board and it is protected by a fuse also mounted on the board.
You will probably need an Ohmmeter to measure the fuse for continuity as you may not be able to visually verify that it is OK or not. Measure the fuse with the power totally disconnected from the machine. It should measure 0 (zero) Ohms i.e. a short circuit
Hopefully the fuse specifications will be printed on the fuse case so if it is blown you know what value fuse to get.
