The difficult part was to find what component was bad. Maytag does not sell the manual for this machine any more. We could not figure out what the problem was until we decided to check the voltage on the board and compare it to a second machine that we have. The second machine showed different readings so we decided to compare voltages on the transformer (main) that is at the bottom of the machine. There is a Primary (110 volts) and two secondaries; one which output is about 26 VAC and the other is above 10 VAC. The bad transformer had no output in one of the secondaries. Replacing the transformer was pretty simple. Make sure to disconnect the machine please before doing the repair.
