I am sorry to hear that you have error code F3E2. I know how upsetting error codes can be. I see here that for your Maytag washer, error F3E2 means there is a water temperature sensor error. Below is to test the error
1. If the water temperature sensor valve is out of range (23 degrees to 217 degrees F or -5 to 103 degree C) during the water-heating step of the WASH cycle.
Possible causes/procedures
a. Unplug washer or disconnect power
b. Make sure that connections to water heater and CCU (TH2 & HE2 cavities) connectors are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
c. Check continuity from the water heater sensor (black wires to CCU (TH2 cavity) Connector.
d. If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.
e. Check the resistance of the heating element.
f. Check the resistance of the water sensor.
g. Plug in the washer or reconnect power.
h. Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic test.
i. After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power and wait for 15 seconds.
Below is the diagnostic test. I have it in two halves so you can read it best that way.
If you will submit your model number I will be able to help you further.

I had the same problem. Mine ended up being a cut in the pressure switch hose. Here's what I would do to troubleshoot:

1) Clean the filter down bottom one more time. Run a basket-clean cycle and make sure that the drain pump is working. If so, then move to step 2.

2) Do a diagnostic test. Here's some graphical instructions on how to do it:

Grab the codes off the t02 error codes test. There is a reference manual for the codes in a plastic envelope behind the bottom access panel on the front of the washer (panel below the door) -- remove the 3 screws then pull out from bottom. Lookup the codes and see what they mean.

Mine was E22 -- which indicates problem with pressure switch.

3) Do the t06 basket test. If it fails, then open up the top of the washer to check the pressure switch and hose:
Twist the pressure switch 90 degrees clockwise toward the spring to release it. Undo the hose clamps and blow down the hose. Blow into the pressure switch to make sure a contact isn't stuck. I took the bottom panel off the washer and disconnected the other end of the pressure tube from the bottom of the tub. Once disassembled, I blocked the end with my finger to see if the hose was punctured -- sure enough it was. I taped it and reassembled. If after repairing and blowing out, if you still have problems, replace the pressure switch ($60 on Amazon).

What do the error codes F3 E2 mean on my Maytag 2000 series front load washing machine?

F3 E2 is an indication of a water temperature sensor (NTC) error, or heating circuit failure. Check the water temperature sensor and check connections to the water temperature sensor.

Several people having this error needed to repair one of the wires to the sensor. - "There were 2 black wires that go to the water temperature sensor. The wires passed through 2 tie wraps that bonded them to a flange off the bottom of the washer drum. They were wrapped with electric tape inside the tie wrap. Prior to joining the bundle of wires that went to the motor, there was one more tie wrap around the 2 black wires. At this tie wrap there was no electric tape to pad between the wires and the tie wraps. One of the wires was nearly severed.
I replaced the wires. Tie wraps should not be used. They are often too tight and crush wires. Especially in a device that inherently has LOTS of motion."

You should check the hot/cold water from wall to the inlet of washing machine, make sure it all are corrected. I came across the case that those hose were reversed from the first installation but the owner was never use hot water until the next owner faced the issue. Else, the control board need replaced.

F3 E2 error code on my Maytag washing machine

I just had the same problem with my MayTag washing machine - F3 & E2 error codes.
I cleaned out the drain trap then proceeded to remove the top and rear panels to check the Temperature Sensor. The sensor was tested with an Ohms meter and found to be working properly.
I went over the wiring from the Temp Sensor and found that both black wires had been 'cut' under one of the zip ties near the bottom of the washer.
I had to reconnect them with marretts and presto; the washer works perfectly again. If you encounter this same problem - be diligent in going over the wiring. I missed it the first time around.
It's an easy fix for anyone who can strip a wire of the plastic coating.
Good luck :)

Hello, I'm getting and Error Code F24, does anyone

The "F24" error code is a heat sensor error code. The following link explains the error code in detail and the steps to correct it:

In many cases, the connector plug on the NTC sensor wiggles loose and causes the error code. Check the NTC connection first to make sure it is tight and making good contact. This may save you a service call and/or replacement parts. Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing anything inside the unit.

A replacement NTC module (if required) can be purchased at for about $10. The part number is 8181705. Refer to the parts illustrations under the "Tub and Basket Parts" heading for item 26 as a pictoral reference to assist you in locating the sensor on your washer.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

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.
