SOURCE: Maytag front loading washing machine

This worked for me for the E3 error code: Turn the machine off and then on. Enter the Service Mode by pressing the Chime and Exrta Rinse keys for 3 sec. Display the Diagnostic Codes by pressing the Rinse and Spin key. Clear the codes by pressing the Delay and Chime keys for 3 sec. Turn the machine off, unplug and plug in the power cord. This dumps the memory. Evidently, if it gets full, it causes problems with the programming and messes up the cycles.

SOURCE: Lr code on display

it is a problem with the motor .this is confirmed.

Issue
Washer stops in mid-cycle and/or flashes a code.
Warranty Standard product manufacturing warranty applies.
Action The motor drive system experienced a momentary loss of neutral feed from the power cord to the
Motor Control Board. The neutral line for the Motor Control Board passes across the water valve
solenoids. Neutral to the motor drive system can be momentarily lost If there is poor crimping of any
of the wire terminals in this circuit. This situation could result in a misdiagnosis and unnecessary
replacement of the Motor or Motor Controller Board.
Current Neptune front load washers will indicate a false locked rotor signal to the Machine Control
Board. Washers with a LED display will flash code “LR” in the display. LCD washers will display
“Locked Rotor.” The earlier built front loaders will not display a code, but simply shut down in midcycle
or will not start.
Pull each terminal of the white wire harness connected to each water valve solenoid and verify the
wire is properly stripped and crimped to the metal terminal connector of the wire harness. Make sure
the wires fit snug on the terminals of the water valve solenoids.
A product improvement has been made to the following models. The neutral wire is routed across
the pump only, and now by passes the water valve solenoids.
MAH55FLBWQ/W ..................... Series 12
MAH5500AWQ/W ..................... Series A7
MAH6500AWQ/W ..................... Series 33

SOURCE: washer not spinning or draining

Same problem.  Water wouldn't drain, no trouble codes, door wouldn't unlock.  When the Rinse and Spin cycle or Drain cycle was selected all I got was a growling humm from the pump.  Clued in by the above postings I pulled the washer away from the wall, tipped it back so it leaned against the wall with the bottom fully exposed and removed the plastic panel covering the bottom (underneath - 4 screws) of the machine.  The small pump was just where these postings said it would be, top right of the bottom opening. Disconnect the two drain hoses from the pump. Mine were connected with hose clamps that I removed with just my thumb and fore-finger.  I had two quarters AND a nickel lodged inside the pump and was able to coax them out without removing the pump. Replaced the hoses and bottom panel, tipped upright and I was back in business - didn't even have to unplug (Its never a bad idea to do so) or disconnect the water hoses.  

  • Total time spent: including searching for these posts and random dead-end trouble shooting - 1.5 hours.
  • Tools: 1 Phillips screwdriver.

On a previous question about this washer, I answered thinking it was the motor run capacitor. Based on this question with more information about the symptoms, I now strongly suspect a jammed drain pump as the source of the humming--the clue for me was that after the unit was off, it still hummed--that's the main board trying to drain water out of the tub when an error is encountered. The part number for the drain pump is W10276397.

Maytag LAT9700 Washer won't spin


check on the voltage to the motor when the program goes to the SPIN mode. If there is no voltage the fault lies with the program controller unit. If present then check the motor capacitors and drive.

The howling (squealing) noise is likely the belt, if I had to make an educated guess. Of all the fixes you could be stuck with, that's one of the easier ones.


The reason I suggest that is because even though it probably isn't washing to its fullest potential either, you wouldn't really notice it, if it's still able to do a little agitation. Once the spin cycle kicks on, the motor applies a lot of power, and if the belt is loose, it'll spin that belt around the wheel, creating a really soothing and serene squealing noise, causing average humans to start seeking sharp objects with which to slice their wrists.

can you hear the motor running or is it humming

Won't Run


The humming usually means the motor is trying to start but can't either because of weak windings or not enough electrical power. Need to check the motor control.
