Question about Maytag Neptune MAH9700 Front Load Washer
Okay, first we have had the washer (brand new) since Feb. 2007. Last night my husband went out to the laundry room and put in a small load of his clothes (couple jeans, shirts and an insultated shirt). During the drain/spin cycle he heard the washer thumping like the clothes needed to be repositioned. He noticed that the washer had an E3 code and opened the door to the washer. When he did, a large round band/spring type thing fell out of the washing machine. After further investigation, he noticed that the clothes that he had put in were wedged between the outside of the drum and the inside of the washer frame/houseing. He also noticed that the washer had "eaten" or ripped the arm totally off of his insulated shirt.
Has anyone else been through this type of issue? I know that we all talk about the "dryer eatting the socks" but now the washer?
Thank you for any assistance:0)
IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.
