Hi,
3E is wrong voltage detected on motor. The motor contacts must be tested, if they are OK, the motor may need replacement.#
I see if I can find parts and schematics.

3E is an overload condition. Your symptoms indicate a loose connection. Remove the plug-in connectors, spray them with contact cleaner, if possible use needle nose pliers to squeeze the tubular connectors so that they are tight fitting.

What's your problem? I am getting a 3E code during wash and the machine stops


3E == overcurrent detected at the motor.

Open the control panel, there should be a tech sheet in there that explains how to put the machine into service mode (press chime and extra rinse keys for three seconds) and what to do while in service mode to track this down. Once on service mode, you can cycle through and retrieve all diagnostic codes... and lots of other stuff that'll help you track this down.

You can also go ahead and check out the windings on the motor. Unplug harness connector and test from wire insertion side.

Pin #1 and Pin #2 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
Pin #1 and Pin #3 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
Pin #2 and Pin #3 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW with error code tE, lower case t and upper case E. What causes it. I finally got it in diagnostic mode and it says U133 but wont go any further.


"te" error code is caused by a faulty thermistor; likey cause is:
a. Loose wiring at the control panel (directly behind the cycle selector knob)
b. Broken wire at the thermistor (located at the bottom/front of the tub)

To access the wire plug connectors at the control pannel, remove the top cover of the washer. Stand in front of the washer and look for the plug connectors behind the control panel. Pull apart the plugs and re-install.

Test the washer. If the "te" error still occurs it will be neccesary to remove the front panel as well (two sets of special plier-type tools are needed).

Inspect the thermistor closely, with good lighting. If there's a break in the wire it will be at or near the black sheathing / heat shrink material.

Just like a reference guide, this service manual could helpful: MAH9700AW

Hope this helps.

Code E 3 On Maytag MAH8700AWW

Pin #1 and Pin #3 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
Pin #2 and Pin #3 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
If the error code somes 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.

Hope helps.

What is the error code dS for Neptune Maytag Washer MAH8700AWW?


Please advise me on any recalls and technical information involving error code 3E during a wash load, which appears related to be a faulty control panel. My machine is always shutting down each time it reaches the rinse cycle. Numerous consumers have been complaining about this same model at consumeraffairs.com. Replacement of the control panel is expensive at an average cost of 298 dollars and appears to be the corrective action for other consumers with error code 3E. Over current is not being detected at the motor. I'm disappointed with the quality of this washer considering I purchased it in 2005 for over 1,000 dollars. This problem has forced me to use a local laundry mat to wash my clothes. This error code is not listed in the User manual.

Error code OE does not finish whole cycle


Just resolved same problem...it is the pressure switch aka water level sensor.  OE is overflow error.  Pressure switch is located under top cover on front right hand side.  It is round and has a rubber tube leading down to the drum and a electrical connection to the board.  Paid maytag man to diagnose/install cost me about $150
