Maytag Washer Won't Turn On?

I have a Maytag 3.6 cu ft high efficiency top-load washer (white) Energy Star model#mvwc360aw. The washing machine doesn't come on. I took off the back panel and there are 3 green led lights lit, but the machine won't come on. What should I do?

Check the troubleshooting section of your user guide manual and follow those instructions first.

Then check to see if something isn't stuck in the area when the protrusion on the washer lid depresses the inset button where lid meets washer - this feature prevents serious harm to the unwary by stopping the machine action when the lid is lifted. If there is 'gunk' or a build-up of lint caught in the inset button it will keep the machine from working.

Also check to make sure the circuit breaker to the machine isn't slightly flipped resulting in the current making an incomplete circuit to your machine - just enough juice to light those led lights and maybe the control panel but not enough to actually start the machine.


There are so many reasons why your machine isn't starting that if the above doesn't help you, you may need to call in a Maytag repair tech. Hopefully the machine is under warranty and the problem is something the warranty covers.

My maytag mvwc425bw1 sounds like it is working and the lights are on, but when done it hasn't washing the clothes. they aren't even wet.
