Epic Maytag washers are front-loading washing machines. The washers have a control knob to select different washing cycles, buttons to select a soil level and options such as pre-wash and extra rinse. The keys are sensitive, so Epic washers have a button that locks the control panel to stop accidental activation of a new option during a cycle. Unlocking the control panel is as simple as the touch of a button.


Step 1

Place your finger on the "Cycle End Signal" button on your Maytag Epic washer control panel.
