Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

My epic mfw 9600sqo is not spinning and draining properly. The error lights have been coming on lately. If I unplug the washer it usually resets.. but that is a hassel. The electronics seem to get stuck in the rinse cycle.. the door locks and none of the buttons will engage on the new command. Maytag was no help... I needed the serial number which was locked inside of the front loading door... After unplugging for a day it seemed the electronics and the buttons started working again.

Your filter could be clogged. You might want to try cleaning it if you haven't done it before, Here's how.

1.Turn power off at breaker or unplug the washer.
2.Unscrew the 3 star head bolts on the bottom panel.
3.Right in front of you you'll see a white plastic with 2 hoses going into it and a black box attached. It has a circular knob. That's where the filter is located.
4. Unscrew the 1 silver screw attaching the filter housing to the washer... this will make it easier to access the white hose clamp. Slide the housing towards you to free it from the washer frame.
5. Grab a bucket to catch the water that's in the hose and place a towel under the washer too, this will keep any stray water from going all over.
6.You can use a pair of Chanel lock pliers to squeeze the hose clamp on the smaller white hose while you pull it free from the housing, aim that hose into the bucket and shake it a bit to get any particles out until it stops draining.
7. Now you can unscrew the white circular filter knob to the left, be prepared for some water to come out, keep the bucket and towel handy for this.
8. Pull the filter all the way out and more than likely you'll be surprised by how much **** is in there lol, I had a small screw driver, a nail, coins and many other misc. debris.
9. Shake the filter housing a little while its over the plastic bucket to help drain excess water and crud out of the hose and housing.
10. Clean the filter and make sure all the holes are clear.
11. Reinstall the opposite way you took it apart but keep the lower panel off to make sure nothing is leaking after you do step 12.
12.Turn the power back on and press the cancel button twice and make sure the washer is set to spin and drain cycle and run and watch it off and on until its done.
13. Go ahead and put the lower panel back on.

Hope that helps :D

Maytag Epic Z Washing Machine shuts down during spin, can I fix it myself?

Hello Brain;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Error codes are generalized. Both of your codes are drain relative. They will tell you to clean your drain, but there is more to it than that.

You may have a bad drain water level switch, a plugged drain line....

Please send me your model number, So I can see what your have.

Maytag epic Z Washer shuts down at spin cycle

F21 usually indicates a pump problem however when that is not the problem then the place to look is the board itself as there is a mis communication between it and pump cycle? If the pump cannot operate it will not allow it to go into the spin.

Sounds like your drain line is clogged. You may also have stuff clogging a water filter just before the pump, or the water outlet coming from the drum.
It could also be a problem with the pump, but until the drain line is opened up, you still won't be able to empty the water from the washer.

I just moved and my washer through the error code "sud" when it started to spin it wont drain either.

You have either overloaded the machine, or you have used too much soap. unplug washer for about 10 minutes. set to rinse and spin, should work fine. If you cant get it to work tried putting some veggetable oil to kill the suds.

Epic washer doesn't spin fast. spins, but slowly. clothes coming out wet, very wet. it started after i washed a heavy wool sweater.

Check the filter, make sure rinse hold is not on, check the drain hose is not blocked, lastly check the brushes, remmember unplug first.
