It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

SOURCE: MAYTAG EPIC FRONTLOAD WASHER NOT DRAINING

The filter is in the front on this one. Under the door, there is another panel. There are 3 screws that a 1/4" nut driver takes off pretty easily. Get a bowl and bucket. There is a white screw cap that you should easily see. Open it slowly with the bowl underneath. Close it again when the bowl is filled and dump the bowl into the bucket. Repeat until no more water comes out then unscrew it completely. Clean out the trap and replace. There is a stop that prevents you from overtightening. See if that works. A six dollar nutdriver is easier and cheaper than any repairman.

SOURCE: I have a maytag epic MFW9800TQ0 with and F 06

Rock on with the incredible answer above from Jeff. That, for a guy with the time and smarts maybe can fix it himself. I have a quick fix answer (that I know, it's not the right way) works if your Epic is still going, but is on it's way to a slipped drive belt. My wife got us into the Maytag Epic to save space in our tiny 906 sq feet house. Anyway, so if you haven't figured it out, or tried this yet, you can simply unplug the machine and leave it off for 60 seconds.
Here's the sequence that led to our F06 fault code : 1) a large amount of towels was put through on Sanitize. 2) immediately following the washer lumping over the big load of towels, it began to sometimes squeek during wash cycles. 3) Worked fine however, for several months. 4) I washed 1 new shirt to "get the new clothes chemicals" out. 5) during the spin cycle with that unusaully small load, BAM Epic whips out the F06 code.
So, pushing all the buttons did not work, but unplugging for 60 seconds has it working again. Now this is not the full answer, as I know she's in need of some better service. For that use Jeff's answer.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND for all EPIC owners, if you use the sanitize cycle - change the spin speed from "Extra high" to "High." NEVER use the extra high.

Thanks - Tom

Possible that there is problem with the power supply to your main board unit, It is possible that the DC converter is having a low regulation and so when the start is pressed on there is a drain on the power resulting in the panel showing a DIM. Check the motor, remove power and check for overload to motor and inlet and drain pump

Model MFW9800TQ0 Frontload washer has draining issue F02 error


Thanks jworley60!!! Saved me a service call. I have a 9700 with the same issues and that filter had many interesting things in it (including four 1 dollar bills and one of those 3-in-1 washing sheets). One note, the panel is on the front and the screws are at the very bottom of the washer. If you do not have it on a pedastal, you may need to block it up a little to get to the one in the middle.
