Re: Error code "sr"

When Sr appears I banish it for a few weeks or longer like this:
(1) Close the washing machine door.
(2) Turn off the GFCI or circuit breaker and wait for ALL lights on the washer to go out.
(3) Open the washer door and leave it open while doing steps 4 and 5:
(4) --- Turn on the GFCI or circuit breaker.
(5) --- Press the washer's Power button to turn it on, then again to turn it off.

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 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.

We just installed the MAH9700AWM Maytag Neptune and got an error code OE? We cancelled cycle, etc still getting issue.

The "OE" error code means the control detected the water level in the machine is above the overflow level. According to your description the first failure suspect is the water valve possibly stuck. Perform the troubleshooting as described in the tech sheets.
