Terri, you may need to contact Maytag on this one. Here is service bulletin that was released in June of 2002... "Date: June, 2002 No: TDL0008A-S, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWQ Issue Software Improvements: A software improvement was introduced to the machine control board. The improvements focused on.  Reducing the number of wet clothes loads, spinning and draining complaints.  Modifications to the time estimation displayed toward the end of spin cycle. Display will no longer fluctuate erratically, time remaining.  ?dO? is no longer displayed when the door is open. Warranty See specific product for warranty information. Action This board modification was phased into production without a series change. Inventory at the National Parts Center was purged and replaced with the new control board." Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: washer won't run through a complete cycle-stops at 29 minutes

There is a service manual behind the control panel it will show you how to test the door locks. If might have a bad lock solenoid.

Check engine light came on. original code

My guess is you mean misfires, not backfires. How does vehicle run when warmed up? I'm also thinking that the misfire codes are coming from a lean mixture situation. No other codes coming up either? Please reply with year, make, model, and engine, just to confirm heading etc., please.

I have a 1997 goodman 3.5 ton outside gas, self igniting heater. the led beep is 1 then a 2 then a half second delay.

I am sure you have gotten this fixed by now. A 1 code is a general lockout meaning it tried to light 3 times and did not. A 2 code is for a stuck closed pressure switch. That pressure switch is normally open. If unit is off, and you remove the wires and using a multimeter, ohm across it, it should be open. If not, it needs to be replaced.

Microsoft only does warranty with the original owner , kinda stinks:(
Overheating just a secondary issue , The main problem is the G.P.U
has broken connections under it , giving you red lights. Don't
worry about all the error codes they are conflicting some times.

You have two options

1 have a shop that has a re-flow capabilities re-seat the
G.P.U and remount the Heatsink with out stressing the
P.C. board ( very important detail)

2 Do it your self, there are relatively simple procedures
that are safe for the unit and will get you back in
the game ( a standerd xclamp mod ) has more than likely
all ready been done on your unit if so you will need to
do some extra step to recover your unit , ill advise if needed

Display for radio stuck in '7 SAFE' mode

This sounds like a Phillips Car Stereo:

To get the code in:
1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
2 once
3 once
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels
You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!

Time delays work as follows:

Attempt 1. 10 seconds
Attemp 2. 30 seconds.
Attempt 3. 10 minutes.
Attempt 4. 20 minutes
Attempt 5. 40 minutes
Attempt 6. 80 minutes
Attempt 7 160 minutes
Attempt 8 320 minutes
Attempt 9. 640 minutes (yes that is 10 hours 40 minutes!!)

Vitally important thing to remember, the countdown timer works only when the radio is switched on. ANY interruption in the power will reset the timer!

So, be prepared for a VERY long wait to be able to enter the code!
Oh, and if it has reached 10 attempts, then it needs a dealer unlock.

Error Code: 07,010.43:1944

You are doing nothing wrong.
That code means your print head is not moving into position properly, AKA to slow in pivoting back and forward.
Here are the problems in order of likelyhood.
1. The print head pivot block. When, from the front, you take the left side cover off, about half way back on the lower part of the frame there is a stainless steel block, about 1 inch by one inch square. Most of the time what happens is some ink has seeped into that block and the pivoting of the print head is very slow. What you want to do is remove the spring assembly over that block. It just pulls back and you latch it up and to the left. Remove that block and soak it in very hot water. That softens the contaminating ink for easier removal. Clean the block thoroughly and as best you can pick out the remaining ink surrounding it in the frame of the machine. Lightly lubricate the block with a silicon of very highly refidned oil. I stress lightly.
2. The cleaning blade has stuck to the print head. That normally is caused by not powering down the printer properly or a power failure shutting it down. For that, you have to remove the right and left side covers, and the ink loader,( where you put the ink sticks). That is just held in with pressure tabs. Remove the ink loader then look between the drum and print head, if the wiper is stuck there, gently pry it loose from the print head, and run 2 or 3 cleaning cycles.
3. While you would have the ink loader out, if the wiper isnt stuck, make sure one of the cables to the print head are not holding it back.
One of those 3 will resolve the problem. It is caused by the print head not being able to move freely.

Don't you hate it when you can find lots of people with the same problem, but no one with an answer?

Well I have the same problem. I cracked open the front and found the service manual. Not sure what it does, but holding in "Hi Temp" plus "Start/Cancel" for either 3 seconds or 0.5 seconds is supposed to do something. 3 seconds seemed to reset it, and now it's washing.

Good luck.
