Question about Washing Machines

Maytag epic front loader

Not sure, but washer does not seem to be using enough water... When we first installed it, we ran it through with no clothes and the water came up about 3 inches on the door.... On our first load of clothes, the washer was adding water constantly, as the cycle was nearing end, we got an f09 error..... After a few more tries we would get an fh error.... now we get no error messages but the washer does not seem to add enough water to wash or rinse the clothes.... we have resorted to adding water, but this takes to much time and energy, considering we paid close to 900 for this machine.... any ideas? have others experienced this problem, find it hard to believe that the washer is working properly.

Re: maytag epic front loader

Suggestion: Check the wall inlet to see if water comes freely; then check if the inlet valves behind your machine to see they are not clogged. Best that u open the valve full before you begin your wash. The water coming 3 inches/door is normal. Dont try opening the door until after you hear a click or aft 2 or three minutes aft wash cycle completes.

My epic front loader is make a very very load noise when in the spin cycle. Not quite at all.

OH,OH!!!, I think the main bearing is bad on the washer, see if the inner tub has play by moving it up and down. even if is not I'm sure the bearing is bad. with time and clothing weight the water seal worn allowing water to wash the lubrication in the bearing. this is a mayor repair.

Maytag the washer quits and a f20 or f11 shows up

Its a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.

I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water

Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

I need to change the bellow on my maytag front loader. Do you have any instructions?

The following link explains how to change the bellow on a Maytag Epic:

Later models of Maytag washers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions should apply. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Front loading Maytag Neptune doesnt drain all water

the washer has a low level of water in it at all times. it will never completely drain out unless you pump it. this is one of the reasons there is such a smell with these washers, i use vinegar in rinse cycle and i use bleach once sometimes twice a month to keep mold and mildew smell away.

hi there,

the FH error means it's either you have a drain problem if there is water in it or if if there is now water in it, make sure that both water inlets are turned all the way up. check to make sure that you don't have any water leaks anywhere visible.
