E3 code showing sometimes on Neptune MAH-3

We are having a problem with our Maytag Neptune Washer MAH-3. We are getting an E3 code sometimes. It sounds like the motor is trying to run on the spin cycle, after about 3 tries it then shows the E3 code.

“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.

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.

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

At the middle of my load there was stop with code symbol E3


E3 is that the machine can't see that the motor is spinning. Could either be a loose connector at the motor or a loose hall-effect sensor. this might be a fairly easy fix for a repair tech,

Maytag Neptune 9700 getting E3 code,done diagnostics,code shows 25,2E,& bE instructions say replace control board.Anyone else had same problem? Anyone replace board? Did problem resurface after...


A 3E error is an overcurrent detection at the motor. Some people say that unplugging and re-plugging the connector at the motor clears up the problem.

Maytag may8700aww washer with e3 code


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.
