Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

How do I get through the quick Diagnostics section for a Maytag MHW7000XW1? Service manual is vague, F6-E1 error codes. trying to test for voltage between the CCU and the MS2 pins 1&2.

The manual states if there's a voltage present replace the MCU if not replace the CCU.

SOURCE: F05 Error Code on Kenmore Elite HE3T Washer Model 11044932200

First of all, make sure you unplug the washer before making any measures, and make sure you unplug any connectors from the CCU, so you aren't reading parallel paths. Isolate the components you wish to test from the CCU or you may get inaccurate readings.

The reading across the heating element terminal should read 15 ohms. Make sure you aren't grounding your probe against the case, or you will get improper readings.

The NTC will read approximately what you have at room temperature. Was the connector plugged in before you began troubleshooting? A common problem is the connector falling off and generating the error code.

As far as the connector plug on the CCU is concerned, plug layouts can differ between models. Make sure you have the correct connector plug to the NTC. You may have to hand over hand it to find it. Unplug the connector at the CCU and leave it plugged in to the NTC. Perform a resistance check across the PLUG terminals. You should get the same readings as you mentioned before if the plug and wires are good. This not checks the resistance of the NTC, but also proves continuity of the wires.

Doublecheck your readings and let me know what you have. I would like to rule out a CCU problem. It is not common for this error code. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet Front loader mdl WFW8300SW00 will not start

I had a variety of error codes show up on my duet, and I'm not sure but I seem to recall a 31, but the most constant was 02. I took off the front cover, pulled the white plug out from the unit, put a bucket under it, unscrewed it and drained it. It may be the MCU is having problems because the washer got plugged up.

SOURCE: Washer will not start.

F28 is a serial bus error from the CCU (Central Control Unit) to the MCU (Motor Control Unit).

All you need is some Electronics contact cleaner spray and a 1/4 inch socket to remove the top of the machine and the back of the machine.
The CCU is the computer looking box at the top front right hand corner.
Find connector M13, (has red marking on it and only 3 wires) disconnect it by pushing the retainer tab back and pulling gently on the connector.
Spray the contacts of the connector and computer with connector cleaner.
Then re-assemble connector.
The MCU is in the back lower left corner.
Find the connector with 3 wires and red mark, and remove this connector in the same way you did the other, spray it and re-install.
Put the back and top back on.

Coninuosly repeats spin cycle, any suggestions how to remedy this? I have to manually cancel the cycle in order for the machine to stop recycling through spin


I had a Centennial washer on a service call doing this just the other day... After putting it trough diagnostics I found no errors and all the washer's mechanics tested okay. After resetting the control by putting it trough the diagnostics mode it continued to repeat cycles without restarting the washer.
  • Try running it through diagnostics and see what error codes are in the memory. (Guide is linked below)
  • What are the codes? do they give any more clues?
  • clear the codes and run a test cycle.
  • does it work?
  • if it checks out properly with the diagnostics it's probably a bad control board...
Maytag Centennial Washer Diagnostic Guide
If it does turn out to be the control try contacting Maytag (Whirlpool) for a parts concession... Whirlpool customer service guide is linked below.
Hope that helps! Good luck!

Washer error F06 E01


The error codes F6 E1 for Maytag Maxima 6000 front load washer means that the MCU AND CCU are not communicating. You need to check the wiring and plugs to make sure they have a good connection.

Maytag 2000 series error codes


I have a Maytag Maxima frontload washer that was getting these two error codes. I found in my case it was due to the tub not draining water as quickly expected. On my model there were two screws at the bottom of the front panel (one on each side towards the floor) Once these screws were removed and my husband tilted the washer up I was able to get my hand behind the panel and unscrew the filter cap that is located towards the middle at the bottom. It is a large plastic circle that you unscrew. With your hand remove any gunk or objects blocking the filter (usually filled with gunk) screw the filter cap back in, screw the front panel screws in and try to run another load. I have had to do this twice so far. You would think if the filter needs to be cleaned out every year or so they would make it more easily accessible.

Maytag front load washer mod mhwe251yg00 cde e1-f6


Serial communication error you have two computers one up top the CCU and one down below the MCU it's saying the two are not talking to each other the tech sheet has you go thru about 20 steps to basically come to the same conclusion it's either one or the other which I could help more but I run into the same problem in the field. Most times it's a failed CCU

Maytag 2000 series shows error code f6 e1. How can I fix?


Before spending much time and possible unnecessary work, the E1-F6 code may be nothing more than your bottom cover plate is not in place or missing. Recently was servicing a Maytag 2000 series wash and during the inspecting of the cycles it quit and flashed those codes. I had been testing it WITHOUT the bottom cover plate on. When I went to install it back on the code disappeared. Problem simply solved.

We just got a brand new MayTag Modle # MHWE200XW00 today. We cannot get the washer to start due to error codes which are, F6, and E1. What is the problem?


It is a communication error between the CCU and the MCU. It could be just a poor or loose connection or either the motor control or computer control. try unplugging it for 5 min then plugging it in again.

Maytag neptune does not spin. It spins a little and it stops when it gets to 48 RPM and then it stops, it waits for a little bit and starts again never passing over 48 RPM


Does your FAV6800AW error out with dc or UC errors in spin cycle and is it a FAV6899AW? You’re in Service Mode so have you looked thru the diagnostics code blocks and if so what errors are logged? Let’s see if we can start with the machine errors. You can try the Quick Spin test and see if the machine will spin up to 850 RPM with a unloaded wash basket.
I think you have the SM some links just in case. The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
