Maytag Bravos XL Canít get into Service Diagnostic Mode??
« on: December 12, 2019, 07:38:06 AM »

Maytag Bravos XL Glasstop Washer Model # MVWB835dw thatís a digital touch pad sensor display will not allow me to get into the Diagnostic mode. This is a touch sensor keypad membrane unlike the ďspongyl keypad that has no give on membrane when pressed. Diagnostic sheet says make sure washer is plugged in and in standby-mode with no lights.

Within 8 seconds press 1st button - 2nd button - 3rd button in sequence it must be done at least 3 times in sequence. This does not do any thing and can not get into service mode. Anyone have any tricks or tips on how to get into diagnostic mode?

Seems like this is a finger print reader type membrane??

If the magic finger dance isn't working, the tech sheet tells you how to determine if the problem is the user interface or board.

There's nothing special going on. It should work if it's not broken.
