Hello I have a maytag washer MVWB835DW0. I've had small issues before but the most current problem I'm having is that on delicate mode it will switch back and forth between 'sensing' and 'wash' but never really start. The drum won't even shift and turn when sensing. I switched it to normal mode and after a short moment of sensing the drum started up immediately following the latch locking and it started to wash like normal.

A past issue I've had is that sometimes when I'm washing blankets (never overloaded the unit) it will stop after rinsing but not spin dry and I was left with heavy, sopping wet blankets. I'm thinking maybe it's a control panel issue as I do see a flashing green light at the back of the control board. Help!

Here's the parts diagram for your model:

I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

I'm thinking maybe it's a control panel issue as I do see a flashing green light at the back of the control board.
DIAGNOSTIC LED – MAIN CONTROL (ACU)
A troubleshooting tool has been implemented onto the main control board—a diagnostic LED. LED Flashing – The Control is detecting correct incoming line voltage and the processor is functioning.

Per the tech. data sheet, that flashing LED is normal on the back of the control board.

So what you'll need to do is check for any error codes first--->ACTIVATING SERVICE DIAGNOSTIC MODE
