ANY HELP?! Water not draining in Maytag Mav3700AAW machine.

Hi, sorry for pasting this in another Maytag product section but I have a pressing problem here. I can't get rid of the water in my Maytag MAV3700AAW top loader washing machine at the moment. It just will not drain.

I've taken all the clothes out so only the water remains currently. My housemate told me it presented an 'OF' error, and most recently it has presented an 'OE' error, which I'm not familiar with. I've attempted to get rid of the water by running a very simple cycle (6min wash, 1 rinse, 1 spin) and has failed, presenting an another error.

Upon noticing this problem, I detected a subtle smell which would lead me to believe the washer was somewhat struggling to do its thing. Making me think my house mate overloaded it, he's since taken all the clothes out and the water is sitting there. I've not detected any blockages in the basket whatsoever.

ANY help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Otherwise, I have no idea what I'm gonna do with this excess water besides siphoning it, haha. Might make my housemate do that seeming as he's responsible.

Thanks!

To drain out water press the 'spin only' option, if it does not work drain out the water with a tube, ie, siphon it out of the tub.

SOURCE: water not draining completely after cycle ends

First of all, is your drain hose connected to a kitchen sink or into a standpipe? If its a sink make sure you form a loop or curve in the hose as high as possible above the sinks own waste(plug hole) ,to ensure water cannot travel from sink back into machine. If this is not the case then your water pump, or the rubber pipe coming to the pump has definately got some kind of obstruction inside. Your washing machine has not emptied properly since it filled up at the beginning of the cycle,and has not got rid of the soapy water enough to enable a true rinse.Hence the detergent smell on clothes... Turn off power at plug socket.Take drain hose out of stand-pipe (or connection to sink waste)and drop this hose into a washing up bowl or similar at floor level,to drain off as much water as possible before disconnecting hose to pump or checking the pumps impellar to discover the blockage..Lets know how u get on,good luck.

SOURCE: Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

SOURCE: Help!! My maytag neptune MAH6700AWW is having trouble.

the fix was simple i just had to lift my drain hose off the floor. it had become disconnected from the back of the washer and was lying on the floor. I didn't realize that by it lying on the floor it didn't provide the proper back pressure to keep the water in while filling the tub. this was the NF error. as for the LE error. i haven't gotten it since i took off my cold water hose connection and ran hot water into it to losen the dirt/rust that was caked into the screen that is located in it. My washer is running like it is brand new again.

Washing machine maytag centennial not rinsing, holding water, not spinning, what can I do


Hi michelledack,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

Just got a new maytag bravos washer and it will not go past the sensing stage and as it puts water into the washer it drains as fast as it goes in


You must make sure the drain hose is above the water level and not in the water in the "P" trap of the house drain. There must be air to prevent siphoning. The drain hose should not go more than about 12" down in the drain tube.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This might not help you- if not, I'm sorry.
Does each machine have its own water outlet filter? If so I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking the filter ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

I have a Maytag front loader Mod. MFW9700SQ1 - I get an error code of H and then F flashing. The machine stops washing. What could be the problem?


Hi

Error HF means that a water inlet problem has occurred. If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. If the machine is not filling then check whether both valves at water source are turned ON and inlet hose are not plugged. If the machine is filling fine then chec the pressure switch hose and the drain hose for siphoning (also make sure water is not flowing back to the machine from drain hose). Check wire harness connections to: Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU). Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Filled with water and won't drain


Hello,
You’re in the FAV6800a/FAV9800A forum so I’ll assume it’s one of those models. You can do this from Service Mode the method I prefer less messy, just follow this process it’s in the SM but I typed out for ya.

To pump out the excess tub water while failing to complete spin cycle.

I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.

Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with the off button or hit the Presoak key.


Sorry to hear about the over fill. May be you have a stuck water valve or stuck pressure switch. If you want some help just verify the Model type…..Rich
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
