Hi, I really hope somebody can help! A friend gave me his old Maytag, model number detailed in thread title. It seems to be working okay, but although the control panel is on, none of the touchpads are working. I've tried some solutions I googled (some were on here) that involved holding the door alarm and freezer "–" button in a certain way in order to be able to re-enter a code on the label inside the door, but nothing is working. I also unscrewed the top hinge cover and unlugged/replugged the wiring, but it still stays stuck.

I would be so grateful if someone can offer a solution that won't be too expensive!

Hi Kate,

Is the touchpad GREEN LIGHT ON where it says LOCK/UNLOCK on that button?

If not, then its not LOCKED so we are good there.

Then the problem would be the touchpad itself is bad. I've seen this happen many times on my local service calls on this model.

Here's the part you would need:

Thank you: I very much appreciate the response! The lock light isn't on, so I will go ahead with the touchpad repair. Do you think it's something I can do myself?

Yes, if you've fixed other things around your house, you should be able to do this repair.

It comes with complete instructions too.

Let us know how it goes.
