Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer
I have the same problem as the one described below by Artweavaly. As suggested by catriver's response (second paragraph below), I went into test mode and did a self diag. After a short tumble, the humming sound came back and the SC code appeared in the display. The sound goes down in intensity with time and eventually goes away. I got a weak burning smell, pressed the spin speed button and got to PA. The door is still locked. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ivanuyo. The washer was halfway through the wash cycle, and stopped; possibly overloaded. I can change the controls to any load or configuration I wish, but the washer just makes a quiet humming sound and does not progress (the timer doesn't count down). The "locked" indicator will not shut off (or let me into the washer), regardless of what I do: change cycles, shut off the machine, or unplug it.

See if you can put it into a service mode. Power off and on and press chime and xtra rinse together for 3 seconds. Now to do a quick service cycle press temp and soil level together. The washer should take off and do a self diag. It will run the water valves, tumble, dispenser, drain and high spin if you entered it right. If everything passes you will get a PA in the display. If not you will get the error code. You can advance through this test by pressing the spin speed button. If any error codes come up post back and we will try to get to the bottom of it.

My Neptune is doing the same thing. Could you help me if I tell you what the error code is?

Iv, did you check the pump to see if it's jammed? The SC indicates there is a failure in the washer. While you are in the service mode, press the rinse and spin button while rotating the cyle select knob one click. A d should show in the display. Rotating the knob again will show the latest error code. When you get the code post back or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to get to the bottom of it...Catriver.
