Question about Maytag Epic Z and Performance Series 2000 Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Epic Z sounds like a jet airliner with no error messages.

I have an Epic z, we purchased it in 12/09 in 2/10 it had to be replaced because of constant error messages. So in September of this year after we returned from a two week vacation the washer now has turned into a jet airliner...I kid you not when it goes into the spin cycle my whole house sounds like we are on take off. I have contacted Maytag which was a waste of my time. There is only 2 of us and we don't do that much laundry. We do not get any error message. Any help would be appreciated...

hi there,

the FH error means it's either you have a drain problem if there is water in it or if if there is now water in it, make sure that both water inlets are turned all the way up. check to make sure that you don't have any water leaks anywhere visible.

Check out the motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt components. If you have either... then you will need the the new 12002039 motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness.


This kit takes about an hour to install.

Don't forget to replace your door latch wax motor. See to hear a funny song explaining the faulty door latch failure.

SOURCE: Maytag Epic-Z F-28 error code

F28 is a misc error,
most of the time it is because the washer is NOT LEVEL.
1. Unplug waher,
2. Relevel washer. (make sure all legs are equally distributing weight, so as to ensure no shaking). See owner's manual.
3. Plug in, and use.
Hope this helps.

What do we do? We get an error on our Leveler. "Retract Timeout" Return to Leveler for service on our Windsport 34E

Take it in to the service department where you purchased it. Sounds like you have picked up on of those stow away hitch hikers that hide out in the retractables, like those airliners have had happen. Just a little humor. Take it to the service department...just like the message says....sort of.

How to unblock rear window wiper water pipe on I10

Firstly have someone operate the rear washer while you listen for motor operation at the front wheel well of the car (same side as the washer fluid reservoir).
If you can't hear the motor, then the motor is likely faulty and requires replacement.
You can operate the front washers to locate where both motors are. (under the car, beside the wheel well.)

If the motor is working but no water is coming out, then remove the rear washer jet and disconnect, then using a high pressure airline, blow backwards into the jet to clear out any blockage. If you don't have a high pressure airline with nozzle, then use something like the nylon filament from a yard brush to poke into the jet, to try and clear the blockage.

Driver side windsheld washer not spraying

Check the pipe feed under the hood for any kinks in the line.
Remove the pipe feed carefully and using a high pressure airline, blow back in the reverse direction of the water, back down the washer jet. This fine washer jet is prone to becoming blocked. If you don't have a high pressure airline, then you will need something very fine and flexible, yet stiff enough that when you insert it down the washer jet holes, it can disturb any blockage down there. Although I haven't tried one, you might use a yard brush nylon brush filament.
