SOURCE: maytag bravos washer stops cycle "f" code flashes

This isnt really a solution because Im having the same problem. The repair man that came said that is buildup of soap in the water line. I use my own powder soap, not h/e, and its not desolving and getting built up in the lines. Im not sure what to do to get it to stop doing this. He suggested cutting back on the amount of soap and running hot water through the lines which I have done for the last couple of days but I still have this problem.

SOURCE: maytag bravo quiet series 300: Stopped at spin:

We have a Maytag Bravo Quiet Series 300 washing machine, the door latch is broken. I have the replacement part ( the locking mechanism) but I need can not figure out how to get the top of the washer to flip up to give me access to top front of the machine to remove the old part and replace it with the new.

How do I flip back the top (not the door) of this machine?

We had the same exact problem. Service tech came out and diagnosed bad pressure switch, Part # W1015652. Swapped it for a $135 new one and it seems to work just fine now.

This would have been an easy fix for me to make had I known what to look for. Unplug and shut water, remove top cover, follow small diameter (1/4"?) black tube up from wash drum to where it plugs into the plastic pressure switch housing. Remove switch from its bracket, unplug wire harness and black tube, and replace.

Service tech said that this is due to using too much detergent, suds will creep up into the pressure tube from the wash drum and get into the small circuit board inside the pressure switch housing. He also recommended against using Kirkland Signature brand detergent even though it has the HE emblem on it. Best to use one of the major brands and only 1 to 1.5 tablespoons at most.

A google search for "Maytag 5000" reveals that this is a major problem because it is the 5th search result. "Maytag 5000 problems" search shows that this is the #1 problem with these washers.

SOURCE: what does code f35 mean

I found this for you:
"F35" Analog Pressure Sensor Failure
If the washer does not accept inputs from the control panel, follow the Hard Reset steps below to reset the control:

  • Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  • Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  • Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  • Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.
Note: If the Hard Reset does not work, there may be an internal failure with the washer, that requires service.

"F21" is a Long Drain error code. This is an indication that you may have an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, this is an indication something is lodged in the drain pump or the inlet line running from the wash tub to the pump. There is a white screw off cap on the drain pump that you can remove to inspect the pump impeller and clean. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3608588-f21_error_code

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. On some model washers there is no screw off cap on the pump and you will have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Removing the inlet hose for inpsection is recommended on all these washers just to ensure there isn't anything lodged in the line. Debris and small articles of clothing such as socks or under garments can become lodged in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: The washer will not complete a wash cycle until the conditions causing the error are corrected. In addition, a "SUD" or "SD" (Suds lock) error code can also often occur in conjunction with the "F21" error code. This is due to air being detected in the drainage system, which can occur if the pump is not running, or if you have an obstruction BEFORE the pump. You need to remove the inlet hose from the pump to ensure it is also not blocked. Correct your drainage system fault, and the SUD error (if displayed) should go away.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574350-replacing_the_drain_pump_in_a_front_load

These are very simple repairs that you can perform yourself without the assistance of a repairman.

If the wash tub is full of water, you may want to use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum on the drain line and drain the wash tub. This will minimize any potential mess you may have to clean up.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.



NOTE: The error codes are not listed in the owner's manual. For an explanation of all the error codes, each one of these washers comes with a technical data sheet inside.

To access, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door. The access screws are located under the bottom front edge of the panel. You may have to prop the two front feet of the washer up for better access ( a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed, the panel should drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls.

The tech sheet lists all error code definitions, troubleshooting data, diagnostics procedures and wiring diagrams. I mention the tech sheet because you may need it to troubleshoot this error code.

Read through the information provided and if you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
NOTE: If you determine the pump to be defective, and the pump housing is still in good condition, you only need to replace the pump motor. However, the pump is usually sold as an entire assembly and the motor CANNOT be orderd as a separate item. There are several outlet stores that advertise on ebay and sell the pump motor for much less than ordering an entire pump assembly. Replacement is simple and you do not have to remove the pump from the washer. Just drain the pump as previously mentioned and disconnect the electrical plug from the motor. Remove the three screws holding the motor to the pump housing and replace as necessary. Just make sure the o-ring is intact and in place. To get a good seal, you can lubricate the o-ring with a thin film of petroleum jelly.
NOTE: Newer model Maytag washers are manufactured by Whirlpool. These instructions apply to Whirlpool Duet, Kenmore Elite and Maytag Epic series appliances.

Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

What does the F30 code mean on my Maytag washer?


I just spoke to a repairman who claims he's been working on Maytag washers for twenty years and has never heard of an F-30 error code. He says all Maytag error codes are four digits, and this isn't a real thing. Like I'm lying. While he's saying this, I'm watching the F-30 code flash on my machine. My God, you can't find anybody who knows how to fix anything any more...

What does LF mean on the washer? When I start my load it pops up as LF and stops washing. What do I need to do or what is wrong?


LF (F30)
LF flashes when the control don't sense any water coming in like it is supposed to do. Things to check:
Hoses connected; water turned wide open.
Hose screens plugged.themobilian_1134.jpg
Is water siphoning out due to having the drain hose too low? (30 inches above the floor)
Pressure hose from tub to control loose, pinched, hole, Sediment in tub? themobilian_1135.jpgthemobilian_1136.jpgBlow that tubing out and re-secure; retry with water OUT of tub so the pressure can properly build in that tubing. themobilian_1137.jpg
