Answered by Willian Lymon

To reset a Maytag Bravos XL washer, follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the Start/Pause button for 3 seconds. This will turn off all the indicator lights on the washer.

2. Once all the lights are off, you can proceed to reset the washer. To do this, rotate the Cycle Selector Knob counter-clockwise (left). This will clear any sequence that may be currently set on the washer.

3. Make sure to rotate the knob all the way to the left until it stops. This ensures that any previous settings or cycles are completely cleared.

4. After resetting the washer, you can now select a new cycle or adjust the settings according to your preference.

It’s worth noting that resetting the washer is often done to clear any errors or malfunctions that may have occurred. If you’ve encountered a specific issue with your Maytag Bravos XL washer, such as an error code or malfunction, it’s recommended to consult the user manual or contact Maytag customer support for further assistance.

In my personal experience with a Maytag Bravos XL washer, I found the reset process to be straightforward and effective in resolving minor issues. However, if a problem persists even after resetting the washer, it may require professional repair or troubleshooting.

To summarize, resetting a Maytag Bravos XL washer involves pressing and holding the Start/Pause button for 3 seconds to turn off the indicator lights, and then rotating the Cycle Selector Knob counter-clockwise to clear any previous settings. This process can help resolve minor issues and allow you to start fresh with a new cycle or settings.
