Many thanks for replying-i really don't see how maytag could repair it as i am in Nigeria working for Shell Oil. I am pretty disappointed that it failed after 3 tries but there you go!
I will try what you suggested then get back to you.
It doesn't really have an 'on'button-it has a start button and on the dial for the programmes you kind of turn it to the right from its off position to power it up-which one shall i hold?
I tried that but still does exactly the same-blinks 2/3 times when you press start.
How much will a new part cost?
i will need to buy the part from the UK.
So are you saying that I can get the part for free if under warranty?
It still has over a year left and 10 years parts warranty?
