    I also have an error code E3....won't spin...help!!!

  • wjwever Apr 10, 2009

    we get E3 errors with almost every load, wiring harness was replaced and so was the motor... what is a hall sensor? what are these guys missing??

    Got the same problem, not too sure what it is, but I know it doesn't have anything to do with the eductor (water draining) pump cause I just replaced mine, I'm pretty sure mine's not spinning, might be because of it's belt or drive system, I don't see how a motor like that could just go bad without catching on fire first.



    I'll check it out and repost if I can

SOURCE: Maytage Neptune E3 code - Model MAH8700AWW - machine won't finish cycle

“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

SOURCE: e3 keeps poping up

Hello leggettelect,

The e3 code has to do with the Hall Sensor. This is a sensor that looks at motor RPM. There have been some issues with the wire harness or the harness connectors being loose. You can also get the code if the sensor itself is loose and cant read the motor RPM. Here is a link to a tech bulletin from Maytag explaining it in more detail and has some pictures so you can see what to check. Hope this will fix your problem.

Neptune mah8700aww has a e3 code


The Neptune can sometimes be reset. God knows the repairman for Maytag really needs to get back to work, yet to reset the cpu on your washer/dryer just unplug the unit for 60 seconds. I hope this helps you out.

These units seem to all use the same control board and have the same issues. the intermittent and door lock issues are random and frustrating. it will take a person that wants to fix it. see this link for what to do. I have other links that explain the same.
