3E has something to do with the motor control. Apparently the design of this machine allows a water leak either from the water intake box or down a rubber hose which runs along with the motor wire harness. The water tracks to the harness and motor and shorts the whole mess out. a.k.a. fried motor.
pull the back plate off (3 screws) and look at the motor where the wire harness plugs into it. Notice a bunch of green stuff- that is corrosion from the electrical short circuit causing your problem. See the rust build up on the side rail below the motor (as there will be none on the side adjacent) this is indicative of a water leak.
Our machine started doing this within the first week and we had the "service" people come out and "fix" it, but it appeared they did nothing. When I opened the machine up I discovered the problem when I ohmed out the rotor contacts in the motor wire harness and found it to be open instead of the factory specs of appx 2.5 ohms.
Maytag (now Whirlpool) does not want to send me a new motor and harness because of their bad design. The machine is a sealed unit only 23 months old. Note to all...do not buy Maytag or Whirlpool. That Maytag repair man is sitting on his bum because the company does not care about their consumers and their cheaply made products (sold at high markups).

SOURCE: What does error code Lr mean and how do I fix it?

http://www.bobvila.com/wwwboard/messages/155863.html

says:

just an FYI to anyone who might need to know. my neptune started kicking up an error of LR and stopping. i ended up sending an email to maytag and got a response back from one of their techs. the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit board at the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its control board at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or control board at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N 12002039).

hope the info helps someone as i had a heck of a time finding it.

SOURCE: Whirlpool duet front load washer flashes F35 shortly after start

Sud= The unit has sensed there is too many suds in the unit it will flush and pump out for 5 min and restart on its own..This is caused by too much soap use..
From the book :
SUD Code=
If too much detergent was used:
—Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
—Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged
or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump,
pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any
cycle.

On a front load maytag washing machine 2000 series it makes it through the wash cycle and starts beeping & stops & shows error codes E3 & F2 what is wrong


F2 E3 means that your program inside hte CCU (central control unit) is corrupt and unfortunately the CCU will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. If you pull the washer forward and remove the screws coming in from the back of the top panel, the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. Then you can access the CCU in the front right corner mounted to the right side wall.

Maytag 3000 series front load washer has code F29. What does hat mean?


That error is a control board error. You might want to try unplugging the power for 5 minutes to see if it resets. If you using the pause cancel and start sequence don't work then you need to replace the control board.

What does the code od mean?


The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

Hi, What does a F20 error mean on a maytag 3000 series?


See this page: http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2887/~/display-shows-f20-or-fh---front-load-washer

Your washer water valve inlet screens may be dirty / covered with debris and need cleaned. Some hoses have additional screens installed at the faucett connection depending on who did the install process. Low water pressure will also cause this code.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have new kenmore HE5t steam washer showing F99 code. what is that?


The F99 error indicates the interface and central control are not compatible.

It means you selected a cycle on the interface that the central control does not recognize.

Usually this means the two controls are not compatible which might happen if an older control was installed in a new machine.

If the washer is brand new then I suggest scheduling a warrantee service call.

The only thing I could suggest you try yourself is to enter and run a service test.
The instructions to do so are in the image below.

(Be sure to press the button for a full 4 seconds.)

Perhaps this will reset and coordinate the interface and control.
