Soap Spill Causes Maytag Washing Machine MalfunctionBrand: Maytag
A client approached us with a Maytag washing machine malfunction. The appliance refused to power on or respond to any commands, exhibiting a complete lack of activity. Our technician initiated a diagnostic process, attempting to activate the diagnostic mode, but the machine remained unresponsive. Suspecting a potential issue with the control board, the technician turned attention to the user interface board.
Upon opening the control board, an immediate and concerning discovery was made – the control board was completely saturated with spilled soap. It was observed that the client stored liquid soap directly on top of the washing machine, occasionally leading to spills that seeped into the control board. This liquid damage rendered the control board inoperable. Unfortunately, cleaning the control board proved futile in this case, necessitating a complete replacement.
