Hi this searstechtoo I did some research on similar american models and will paste what I found for you.
Will Not Lock
• Door not all the way closed or not properly
aligned. Possible laundry load is too large to
close door.
• Place washer into Service Mode and check for
diagnostic codes 4 &18.
• Perform Board Output Test. Check door lock
system.
• Check electrical connections at lock switch
assembly and machine control board (CN2).
Cn2 is a thermistor used in a wax motor to control the lock and unlock feature of the door.
I would start at the lock and trace the wires then unplug and replug them.
Thanks SearsTechToo

Code nd


Don't know if this is your problem but sometimes ours will appear to drain, but there is still a lot of suds that remains and trips the nd (no drain) indicator/lockout. We had to pour water in from a bucket to beat down the suds, then repeat several times to get all the suds out. First time I took off the back of the washer, disconnected the pump, then let the suds out. To much work.

Maytag washer throwing fault code 21


An "F21" or "F02" error code is indicative of a slow draining cycle, normally caused by a clogged or kinked drain hose. If an "F21" or "F02" error code appears, check the drain hose on the back of your washer to ensure that it is not clogged or bent. Once the drain hose has been unblocked, the error code should disappear and the machine drain properly. However, if you have a high efficiency washing machine and the error code continues to appear, make sure you are using the correct detergent; because high efficiency machines use much less water than traditional washing machines, they require the use of a low sudsing detergent. Traditional detergents may produce too many suds, which can block the machine's drain hose and lead to slower draining cycles.

I have a Maytag MAH-24 Washing Machine showing a 5E error code


You will have to contact Maytag and speak to their service dept and give them your model number. Ask them what a 5E eror is and when you call for service, tell the repair facility what Maytag told you. That will next to eliminate labor cost for Diagnostic.

What does code F mean


F is part of a system fault code. There should be additional characters (numbers) in addition to the F.

Here's what I get from a Cabrio Owner's Manual if there are numbers after the F:

F## code (F-type error code) appears in display

System error code. Press START/PAUSE once to clear the code. Then press START/PAUSE again to restart washer. If code appears again, call for service.

I called Whirlpool at 1-800-442-1111, and according to customer support the manufacturer intentionally no longer provides descriptions for F codes (though there are still a few owners manuals that will describe something like F21 = Long Drain). Check to see if your owner's manual provides any F code help in the troubleshooting section.

Generally, what I was told is that F codes indicate customers need help from a technician. Not always completely true, and really not very helpful--especially if you want to attempt to avoid scheduling service.

Since there are numerous F## codes, please provide the specific code number if you desire further assistance.
----
Here are letter codes Whirlpool provided in the owners manual (copying from a PDF works poorly):

-

oL (overloaded)

appears in display

Load too large. If an overload is detected, the washer will drain any water and

detergent in the washer. Remove several items and add HE
detergent. Close lid and press START/PAUSE.
-

uL (unbalanced load)

appears in display

Load not balanced. The washer is

running a load-balance correction

routine.

Allow the machine to continue. If the dial is flashing and the

machine has stopped, redistribute the load, close the lid, and
press START/PAUSE.
-

LF (too long to fill)

appears in display

Washer taking too long to fill.

Drain extends more than

4.5" (114 mm) into standpipe.

Check plumbing for correct drain hose installation. Use drain

hose form and attach securely to drainpipe or tub. Do not tape
over drain opening. See "Installation Instructions".

Ld (too long to drain

Won't fill, drain or spin out properly. Error Code od on panel. Sounds as though pump is running but no water drains out. Also, no water runs into machine when it is started.


sounds like you might have a broken belt. If there was a time you might have smelled rubber burning. The belt will stop all the above mentioned.

Maytag Error Codes


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me". Apologies for delay in responding due to regional/time differences.

To my knowledge no, specially on a new unit. On similar incidents, it would appear that multiple error could stem from incorrect connection to the water supply. You could try bypassing the error codes by selecting "Extended Fill" option.

Pls reference this page for additional insights.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Wont work, flashes LR


rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos

Maytag Centennial: Not starting, maybe lid lock issue? How to install new magnetic lid latch? then is replacing lid lock next or could it be something entirely different? Help, please, and THANK YOU! I have a Maytag Centennial washer MVWC450XW3 that quit working last week. In hindsight, I could see that there had been a history of "stuff" going on with the washer, all around the lid lock;i.e. - last time it worked I had to select a couple of different cycles before it finally started. SO Far, I have tried to get the diagnostic codes but failed a bit at that. I THINK that I was getting an F5E1 error. I was however at least able to access the diagnostic menu, and notice TWO things: No matter what, the Lid Locked LED never comes on, ever. Next thing I notice is when I do a short cycle diagnostically, it never agitates or spins. It fills various temp water, does not agitate, then it seems to suck the water back out. IN the end, I ordered just the magnetic part of the lid lock (the part that is actually on the lid) because I could see mine was rusted all the way away, but am not too sure how to put it on. Therefore I just put it in the slot where it would go if I had installed it. Incidentally II asked my ma if she had noticed anything going on with the washer and she said No at first but then with prompting (she's 81) allowed that she had indeed noticed something wrong with the lid shutting so she had cleaned out that "little hole"{ very well and oiled it to make sure it was working. So again my two main questions are: How to install the lid latch, do I need to take out all of the screws around the glass? and Should I next move on to buying a lid lock part or could it be something entirely different?
