Had the same problem. The water pump is not working and since it cant drain water it wont spin. A easy fix. There's a magnet located on the water pump thats comes lose. Simply tie it back into place.

You have some kinda something stuck in your drain pump. The computer that controls your washer has detected that it's taking too long to pump out and therefore refuses to spin.
Now this will take alot of work, but it'll save you a couple hundred, OK? First you have to get as much water out of the washer as possible. Fortunately on the Maytags you can do this fairly easily. Use a garden hose and connect it to the end of the drain hose (from the washer)... use duct tape to secure it. Then run the garden hose outside and make sure it's downhill. Now take the corrugated drain from your washer and lower it below the base of the washer. This will drain it completely.
After the water has drained, pull the washer away from the wall... enough for working space. AND DON'T FORGET TO UNPLUG IT! Remove the rear panel (4 screws) and you'll see a big pulley in front of you.To the lower left, you'll see the drain pump. It's mounted to the base of the cabinet. Use a 5/16" to remove the hose clamps then remove the hoses. Then remove the wires that feed the pump. When that is done, you should have the pump in your hand.
Now that you have the pump in hand you'll see the pump housing (it's white). There are three screws holding the pump housing to the motor. Remove them and separate the 2 parts.Now you'll see the cause of the problem. Some trash got pulled into it. Probably a rug bottom or a dog bed....
Remove the stuff and rebuild the unit in reverse order and you're good to go.

Looks like you have either a stuck drum (does not spin) or an electrical fault that make the washer think the drum is not moving.
From a 2006 Technical Bulletin:
E3: 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.)
Specifically, it could be:
1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause.
2. Hall Sensor (integral part of motor) 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.
Unless you are really overloading your machine you likely have an electrical fault, or a failure in the drive train--especially if the problem is intermittent. Probably time to call in a technician.

Thank you for your post, friend!
I understand that your Electrolux washer is displaying an "E3" error code while it is spinning. However, it appears "E3" is an invalid error code. It is possible that the error code is missing characters? I suggest resetting your washer. You can do this by flipping the household circuit breaker for roughly ten minutes. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, and your washer continues to display "E3" I would recommend contacting a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt
