Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Strange code Whenever I press either the power or dial to power up the machine it lights up then in about 5 seconds I get a code that looks like an upside down F and a E. If I push the dial twice it will start to fill then code out. I've unplugged it and nothing helps.

I have a Braun Sensor model 3092 with two quirks. The machine brews coffee great, but I'm curious about 1) the strange, pitchy hum and 2) the Calc light stays on despite having cleaned it.

Yes I can under stand this you have done descaleing but you have not done descaleing in the proper way very thing has its sequence let take dolce gusto by pressing for few seconds the power button it will blink in green this means that the machine is now indescaleing mode when you're done you simply press the power of in this case you have told the machine that you want to do descaleing and after this the internal computer is reset to normal this is why you machine is still blinking because it had not been reset
