Maytag MAH21 - main motor won't run

I have a coin-operated Maytag commercial front loader in which the main motor won't run, but no diagnostic codes come up. I've gone into diagnostic mode and run several of the diagnostic cycles. The hot & cold solenoids work OK, the pump runs when required and the cycles run to completion, but the main drum motor never starts - and no error codes are produced. I would have expected at least the "main motor speed error" code.

While the cycles were running I had the rear cover off. The main drive belt is in place and OK, the drum, belt and motor can be rotated by hand and move smoothly. Couldn't find any sign of a motor thermal overload that may have needed manuall resetting. Any one got any ideas? Any help much appreciated. Ian from Australia.

    Hi Guys,



    Anyone want to have a go at this one? Surely one of you American gurus can help out a simple Aussie on this? Or are you all still too upset because we flogged ya and took away the America's Cup back in '83?...

Its whats called the 'WAX door lock motor' it's a small, brown device that drives across the door lock pin "very slowly" at the start of the wash thus making contact with the door locked microswitch. replace the motor!

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.

Change the number of coins to operate


you need to take the coin slot apart take pictures as you go to put back together the parts to change amount are hidden inside it in hidden compartment if they wheren't removed by some one. your machine didn't come with the coin mech so if you don't have the parts you will need to take it with you to the parts house to get right parts. open the top of the coin mech box there are 2 long rod screws holding it in place usually 5/16 inch wrench fits may need to wiggle the heck out of it to get it out
