That is a VMW (Vertical Modular Washer). The tech sheet is located on the inside of the front panel. You can see it if you look inside the washer toward the front of the washer on the left side. Its in a plastic Ziploc bag. All of the info you could ever need is in that tech manual. How to retrieve codes, enter diagnostic modes and troubleshooting.

Re: missing maytag bravos mvwx500xw dianostic / tech sheet

I purchased a fairly new (floor model) maytag bravos ecoconserve MCT washer a couple months ago from a used appliance store. 

Wow what a mistake.  Because after 3 months the washer has broken down and won't spin.  I have called two repairmen who leave scratching their heads because the store removed the model numbers as well as the tech sheet.   Without it of course they don't know where to start to look at the computer control panel.   Before I toss this expensive mistake to the curb does anybody have the tech sheet for what I believe is the model number MVWX500XW

The washer is top loading and does not have an led screen

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I already looked on the AP google drive for a tech sheet but did not see one. I have attached a photo of the washer
