Question about Washing Machines
Drum will not rotate to either wash or spin-dry. Drive belt is still firmly in place, drum and motor rotate freely when spun by hand from rear. Pump still removes water. When machine is switched to final spin-dry position the pump operates, whilst 230V appears (open circuit ref. to earth) at two of the five wires in the plug to the motor and 60V, (or 80V? I forget) at two of the others. That's about as far as I want to dig without advice. Can you help please?
Please download the manual from here. (simply press left click)
I have sent you an email as well.

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

The reason the machine is coming up with E20 when drying.
is that there is a blockage of fluff in the dryer air duct on the right hand side of the machine just below the fan unit.
the air that goes through this duct is heated and returns back to the tub to dry the clothes. because there is a blockage in this duct the fan pushes air up the pressure switch tubes and fools the machine in to thinking that there is too much water in the drum,
too remove this blockage you have to disconnect the power supply, remove the lid and remove the back panel, 4 screws at the bottom + 4 up top under the lid. plull the water pipe with the valve out of the way and pull back panel away.
you should now see the dryer condensor unit blocked up with fluff. remove this unit and clean with bottle brush.
replace and make sure hoses are done up tight. replace back panel and lid, try again on drying and things should be alot better, drying should be alot quicker as well.
