Question about Maytag Washing Machines

2 Answers

We have a Maytag 2000 front loader washing machine & dryer. Our problem is with the washing machine. The load was in the final stages of spin and I came into the area it is located and 1 was blinking. I unplugged the unit and then proceeded to hit the start/pause button to open the door and it will not allow me to open the door on any cycle. IT will wash and and drain and will count down the minutes. But once the machine hits spin cycle it just sits there. HELP we got a code LF or LM we need help we have had this unit for almost 4 yrs first time with problem

The 1 minute constant timer was happening on mine right from when I bought it. The repair men all said the same thing, that the amount of detergent used is probably too much. You should be using HE detergent and at least half of what they say. They told me it was a soap detector & it will keep going until it reads correctly.
I never had another long spin problem from there in, but my machine causes small holes in all my clothes, a year & a half of calling the maytag people & they say that is not a usual problem I must be loading wrong. But all three different repair men stated it was a design fault. any one got any ideas?

SOURCE: GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle

This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

SOURCE: Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off

Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

Three day old Indesit washing machine


Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
