This technique is a simple method to release a stuck Power / Cancel button on the Maytag / Whirlpool premium front load washers that have a chrome housing ring - type of button.

工具

步骤 1 Identify the Model / Safety Precaution  ¶ 

Identify your washer type.  The Power / Cancel button may differ with different models.  This was my model tag.

步骤 1 Identify the Model / Safety Precaution  ¶ 

  • Identify your washer type. The Power / Cancel button may differ with different models. This was my model tag.

  • On my unit the model number tag was found by opening the washing machine door.

  • ** WARNING ** - UNPLUG POWER PRIOR TO WORKING. YOU WORK AT YOUR OWN RISK. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY!

步骤 2 Locate the Power / Cancel Button  ¶ 

The power button contains  a gray colored round button actuator in a chrome housing.  The words "Power -  Cancel" (solid dot between words) are printed above the button

步骤 2 Locate the Power / Cancel Button  ¶ 

  • The power button contains a gray colored round button actuator in a chrome housing. The words "Power - Cancel" (solid dot between words) are printed above the button

  • Apparently the stuck button was actually caused by the chrome housing/ring being pressed in too far at the bottom or otherwise misaligned. This was not a problem with the actuator itself as I first thought.

步骤 3 Release the button housing  ¶ 

The simple fix here was to take a metal pick (or other thin but firm tool) and carefully get under the chrome housing (ring) at the bottom and wedge it up or slightly forward.

步骤 3 Release the button housing  ¶ 

  • The simple fix here was to take a metal pick (or other thin but firm tool) and carefully get under the chrome housing (ring) at the bottom and wedge it up or slightly forward.

  • To my surprise there was a slight click/pop that indicated the housing ring was released.

  • Plug the washing machine back into the power source and lightly touch the Power / Cancel button actuator.

  • My advice to avoid this in the future is to more carefully "touch" the center of the gray actuator with minimal force rather then "mash" the whole button during use.
