Re: wont drain error 3
Check filter - try putting drain hose down at floor level and see if water runs out freely. if not, filter ius blocked. if water comes out freely, you may have a foreign object in drain pump. remove filterand see if you can see it. you will have water everywhere!!

Check the pump filter which could be blocked or something like a nail has jammed the pump impeller. this may cause a mess as the water needs to be drained to access the removable cover to gain access to the filter/impeller.
Also check the drain pipe is not blocked. this can also be used to drain the machine into a bucket manually.
Considering that machine did not show any error first check that is not activated option "rinse hold" what mean's "stop drum with full of water". I advise you to make a simple test that will show you where the problem is. In the washing machine or somewhere else. Disconnect the drain hose and lift it up to 1m in height and its end hold over the tub or some larger container. Select short drain program and press the start / pause button. If drain hose ejects a solid water stream then is a problem in-house installation of drain water. If does't or poorly drain water then is problem in the washing machine.
My machine had the exactly same problem:
1. Push Start button to wash, but Draining/Unlocking light will flash right away. The drum started to run and stopped
2. No error code shown up
3. Run Quick test: no error code
4. Run Universal Test: error code F25 (later, found nothing wrong with the CCU)
What I did:
1. Clean the bump: found coins and strings.
2. Clean the drain pipe from the pump to tub: found more coins.
3. Clean chamber of pressure switch at the tub: found nothing.
4. Clean the gap between tub and drum: found a credit card!
After the cleanings, the Draining/Unlocking light would still come back and I almost gave up. Amazingly, I ignored it and a few minutes later.... the machine started to run as normal!
It seems that CCU needs sometime to reset itself after the failure.
This error is indicating drain problem.You will have to manually drain the machine.
E06 is a draining problem. When you took the filter out did you check there was nothing jamming the impeller at the back?
Make sure the impeller turns ok. It should ping round in stages. Also check were it drains to. If under a sink check the pipes there.
If after that its still not draining then its likely to be the pump which is faulty.If you have already replaced the pump then check the connection of pump to the hose. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this

If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual. If you lift the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW which is the Spin Cycle direction will it turn with very little resistance?It should not rotate CW. With no error codes I would go to Service Mode page 14 of the Service Manual and read the current recorded Daig codes and write them down then clear the list. Now start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket let it in that mode for about 5 minutes. Hit the off button to end the Spin Onlly cycle then check the Diag code block and see if an error event was logged if so please let us know. If there is no error code generation by the Control Board in the Diag code blocks I would suspect a Control Board issue with your no Spin issue.. Without a known good Control Board and Motor Controller to swap out and no error code generation by the Control Board this would be a hard problem to troubleshoot. The Control Board is under warranty for 5 yrs you could try Maytag Customer Service the number is in the SM and see if they will send you one even if the warranty is up…..Rich
Please just try this first,
unplug your machine from the wall for 1 min and replug back into wall. this will reset machine, then try to put on the spin/drain cycle, see if this works.
let me know if I can be of further assistance
