Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag Epic has a damaged wire harness connection to the touchpad assembly.

Somehow the gray ribbon wire harness came loose during a wash cycle and two of the wires split from the ribbon split. Can I just fix the split (rewire them back together) or do I need to get a new harness? And if it's possible to fix the damaged ribbon, how would I go about doing that?

    I'm not troubleshooting really... I already know what's wrong with my washer. When I took the top off my washer, the wire harness that connects to the control panel has two severed wires. It's this part:

To prevent any other new electrical problems, it would be better to buy a new ribbon cable.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet washing machine door lock error

My front loader has the door locked and I can't open it. I have already turned off the power and that didn't solve the problem. The manual says that if you try to open the door too soon after the cycle completes, then the door locks. How do I open it now? What do I do?

SOURCE: loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer

Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps

SOURCE: installing washing machine motor P/N 35-5022, need wiring schematic to hook up to machine internals

The black or brown connection block on the motor should be color coded to match the harness. If not you will need to remove the control panel and find the service guide sheet. This will give you the wiring diagram for the whole machine.

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.

SOURCE: maytag washer noise during wash cycle

Check for the tighten nut to agatator is tighten. If agatator is lose it floats up and down during the wash. There is a lock ring (rubber) on the shaft that holds the agatator on, check this, if off replace thid . If the agatator is still in good shape can still use it , if not pull of and replace it. This work is't hard to do.

Flases f 21 code worked fine untill i put new front board in and i cleaned out lines and hose still giving f 21


I looked at your tech sheet. As you already know the F-21 on your machine has to do with touchpad not communicating with control. F21 F 22 CCU /touchpad/LED assembly unable to transmit/receive data to/from the CCU central control unit
Possible causes/procedure:
1. Check the touch-pad/LED assembly by selecting different
cycles and changing the modifiers and options available to
confirm the touch-pad/LED is responding.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the
touch-pad/LED assembly and Central Control Unit (CCU).
If you have a new touchpad installed and the harness is fine then the control must be bad.

Hi!!
Click on the following link for a diag. of the control panel. to get access to the back of the Control Board http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/W0901032-00003.png

Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa!!
