Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

I have error code 3 on my MAF1300AAW (Maytag front loader). The instruction book is storage as we are renovating. I have booked a service and they have said I should try to clean the filter as it could fix the problem. The only trouble is I don't have the instruction manual to do it! Can anyone help me?

SOURCE: samsung wf337aa front loader

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

SOURCE: It is showing an SE error code. Trying to find it

That code (5E, not SE) means the drainage is clogged. The code appears after 15 minutes of trying to drain the tube (not sure that´s the word, may be turbine, barrel...). check the lateral filter (a big plastic twist-off cap) for any solid that may be clogging the drainage

Machine is flashing f-28

Is this a top or front load? If it is a top load, there should be a tech book for the unit either behind the control panel, or inside a clear plastic bag, located somewhere on the inside of the cabinet ( tilt machine back and look up from underneath. You should look toward the top, front of the unit). The tech book should list all the error codes and tell you what and where to start checking. If it is a front load machine, you can remove the very top, and you should see a tech book on top of the dispenser assembly, or on the underside of the top in a clear plastic bag. Sometimes the tech book is on the back side of the front, bottom access panel ( located under the door). Again, the tech book will have all error codes and what and where to check. Good Luck!

What does the 3e code mean?

3E is a motor failure (over current) error message. The definition states "Over Current is Detected, Motor won't run". You are advised to check the motor windings, speed sensor, wiring connections, and control board. It's advised to call a qualified service tech familiar with these dryers, and has a service book. These were made by Samsung for Maytag. The original service manual was taped to the rear exterior and often lost. I own the service books, but running a diagnostic test is not enough, there are more hands on diagnostics needed with a DMM to fully diagnose which one of your componants is faulty.

My husband stacked my dryer on top of the washer today with the kit purchased with it. Now my washer has the control lock light on, I can't find my instruction book. How do I get the control lock off?

The following link explains how to correct a control lock problem on a front loader washer:

If this is a Maytag (which is the image you have this posted under) these instructions still may apply. The newer model Maytags are manufactured by Whirlpool (makers of the Kenmore Elite and Whirlpool Duet) and many of the conrol features are the same. I suspect that in the process of mounting the dryer one of the front panel control buttons may have been leaned against and locked the controls.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this resolves your problem.

Maytag MAF1300AAW Error code 4. The machine starts to fill then drains which is repeated several times before eror code 4 appears.

Hi this searstechtoo I did some research on similar american models and will paste what I found for you.
Will Not Lock
• Door not all the way closed or not properly
aligned. Possible laundry load is too large to
close door.
• Place washer into Service Mode and check for
diagnostic codes 4 &18.
• Perform Board Output Test. Check door lock
• Check electrical connections at lock switch
assembly and machine control board (CN2).
Cn2 is a thermistor used in a wax motor to control the lock and unlock feature of the door.
I would start at the lock and trace the wires then unplug and replug them.
Thanks SearsTechToo

What is e3 error on maytag front loader, i have no manual with washer.

I can't remember that code off the top of my head, but on maytag, they include a tech sheet inside all of them. If your's has a console (controls are above the console) remove the 3 phillips screws and it will be in there. If your's doesn't have a console, then it's typically will either be under the top lid on the right hand side (remove 2-3 screws on the rear of the lid and slide it towards the rear and lift off) or finnally the 3rd place is if your unit has 2 panels on the front. The lower panel will have 2 #20 torx screws at the bottom. Remove these and on the inside of the panel you will see it. Those are the three places maytag (or the company that made them with a maytag name) puts them. The tech shheets will not only have a list of error code, but step by step instructions of entering diagnostic modes and tests to run to determine where your problem is.
