Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My 9.5 year old Neptune Front Loader washing machine began to shake, make grinding noises, and had an error code of PF; there was no power failure because everything else in the house did not lose power. When this washing was 4 or 5 years old the pump went out just days after the service agreement ended. Now I think it is probably the motor. If it is the motor, about how much to fix it? Maybe I should chuck it and buy a new one because an expensive repair to an almost 10 year old appliance doesn't make sense to me.

Hi the problem is NOT a motor problem the error code PF stands for Power failure you can try to fix it by Disconnecting for an hour and plug it in again, if this does not work, if this does not work then the fault is most likely the 'control board' these are expensive to fix and cost around $150-200 upwards i would suggest you to buy a new washing machine.

Why would machine throw a PF error code in spin cycle?


The PF error code indicates "power failure" condition. The fact that it was indicating on the display while fully loaded tells me that you have a bad electrical connection somewhere on the machines PC boards or supply.
The spin cycle is also triggering this condition when the vibration on the machine shakes the "bad" connection and causes a brief loss of power to the machine.

Wm3431 pf code


The PF error code indicates a power failure. This might occur while machine is working due to an external disturbance like a storm or power outage in the area. If the PF error code is displayed, turn off the power to the washer, unplug it for 10 seconds, and restart the wash cycle. If the error code continues to present after these steps have been taken, then the washer may require service.

If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


  1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
  2. Do
  3. Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.
  4. FL
  5. The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
  6. Sd
  7. The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.
  8. PF
  9. The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  10. Nd
  11. The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.
  12. LO
  13. The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  14. Lr
  15. The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional.

My maytage neptune washer is flashing PF what does that mean?


Hi


Error code PF means power failure. This happens when there is a power surge or the washer is unplugged manually. To reset this error you'll need to turn off the washer and unplug it for 10 minutes. Restart the washer and check, If the error still appears then pressing the Spin Speed key will begin the Board Output Test. This test turns ‘ON’ a specified output after a key press. Pressing the Spin Speed key again cancels the test. Please post back for further assistance if required.

I get a PF error. That goes away and shows 52 in the display. The buttons light up, but pressing any buttons does nothing but to make 3 beeps.


PF is Power Fail, means the Power was cut off. PF Power failure Power to the machine has been lost during the last cycle. This may occur on start up of a new machine due to factory testing.

Vibration of the wash mashine


How old is the machine? Have transit bolts been removed? Older machine is possible bearing failure or spider breakage( a 1 in 10 wash with a temperature of 95 degrees celcius will extend life of a front loader!- an empty wash or towels or sheets at this temperature). A grinding noise can simply be a worn drive belt, rotating drum by hand and finding grinding and lateral movement equals bearing/spider failure. Also a simple case of Underlaoding the machine will cause unbalanced load and vibration.
