E3 code comes on during a wash cycle

Error code E3 keeps coming up during a wash cycle. Not all the time but when it does the machine wont work. you can hear it trying to work but nothing happens. Sometimes it occurs at the beginning of a wash other times the load is almost done. I have tried unplugging it and plugging back in - sometimes this works. Other times it doesnt. I have also tried manually moving the drum one direction and then the other - again this occasionally works. I can do many loads and not have any issues and then all of a sudden - doesnt matter what I do it wont work. Then after Ive taken laudry to laundormat- go to use again and it will work. Very Sporatic.

SOURCE: getting error E3

3E == overcurrent detected at the motor.

Open the control panel, there you will find a tech sheet that explains how to put the machine into service mode and what to do while in service mode to track this down. Once on service mode, you can cycle through and retrieve all diagnostic codes. You will also find serveral other diagnostic service notes. Read them and follow the instructions to test the motor, motor control, and main control board. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: E3 code showing sometimes on Neptune MAH-3

“E3” code – 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.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor 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.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

SOURCE: At the middle of my load there was stop with code symbol E3

E3 is that the machine can't see that the motor is spinning. Could either be a loose connector at the motor or a loose hall-effect sensor. this might be a fairly easy fix for a repair tech,

Error e3


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

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

Maytag front load washer keeps giving an E3 error during wash, rinse and spin cycles. Not all the time. Sometimes restarting the washer works, othe times not. It seems the error occurs when the tub won't...


The machine control ("main computer board") is attempting to drive the motor but not detecting any tach response from it. The E3 fault code appears when the rotor or the drum is locked or the Hall Sensor is faulty. But the intermittent behavior of the problem suggests a loose wiring connection. Check the harness that connects the Hall Sensor and the motor to the machine control and make sure the connections are snug fit and not corroded. Clean the connectors and terminals then reseat the connections several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the connectors and terminals. Replace the wiring harness if necessary or if it is badly corroded.

Indicate the exact model number of the washer if the problem is not addressed above for further advice.

My NEC NFL855 E3 error


E3 error is discharging water problem. ie 1.the pump not working (under bra wire will stop it spinning) or 2. the discharge hose blocked or most likely 3. the pump inlet hose from the drum is blocked (with small article of cloth or coins or similar).
To Fix:
1. Open the pump filter and check if spinning during empty/spin cycle, make sure nothing jamming or twisted around impellor.
2. Check discharge hose is not crushed or kinked.
3. Lay machine on its side, access pump and remove inlet hose assembly and remove any blockage.

E3 keeps poping up


Hello leggettelect,

The e3 code has to do with the Hall Sensor. This is a sensor that looks at motor RPM. There have been some issues with the wire harness or the harness connectors being loose. You can also get the code if the sensor itself is loose and cant read the motor RPM. Here is a link to a tech bulletin from Maytag explaining it in more detail and has some pictures so you can see what to check. Hope this will fix your problem.
