In Topic: maytag front load washer (whirlpool) doesnt start just beeps

Yes, there is a 3 wire blue harness that runs from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit) I believe it is the M3 connector. Unplug that connector at either end and let it hang. Now hit start, if the unit locks the door and acts like it is going to take off on it's little merry way, you have a bad motor control board. Chances are with this disconected after a minute or so a code will pop, but you will already have your answer. At the moment of start the CCU looks for two signals, door lock and motor control. If it does not see what it likes it tripple beeps. Removing the harness eliminates the bad signal. It will lock the door now and sit there looking for the MCU signal. No signal is better than a bad signal! Make sure you ohm your motor to verify it is not shorted and the source of the blown board though!

I have a can of Key Board cleaner I carry in my tool bag. I turn it upside down and give the Defrost Tstat a quick liquid shot to verify. I am a worrier!!!!!!  I have to know for sure! You have the two test jump ports on the harness but I like the cleaner, it's COOOL!! Plus I use it for other crap !

On the 5500's, if you put them in spin via the quick spin test, and they ramp up and down 0-90 time after time and just keep doing that you have an open in the OOB circuit. Quick way to narrow it down.

Try putting the unit in a quck spin test off the tech sheet. What does it do there?? Does it go up in the increments outlined on the tech sheet, or does it ramp up and down the whole time??
