Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer
Just bought it and it gives me error code F05 on the first run and every run. Try
with different cycle, it still gives me F05 after the first 3 to 5
minutes of cycle and the machine just stop working, so I had to press
stop two times to drain the water.
What does it mean and how to fix it?
Also noticed that when the water temp should be cold but this machine delivers hot water. I have checked that the water supply is not reversed.
Is this not a reliable washer? Should I just return in to Home Depot and buy another brand like LG?
Any input is appreciated.
I have had my epic front loader washer and dryers for 1 year now. I picked them after carefully researching other brands/models and reading many reviews. Epic had the most positive and satisfied reviews/ratings of all at the time.
I have a large house with 6 furnished suites and I do the laundry for all suites weekly, so there is a lot of laundry. The Epic machines have been great, even with some overloading abuse by the cleaning staff.
I did, however, just experience my first problem - the "Control locked problem"
I googled and found this excellent site - and the fix for the problem (hold "cycle end signal" button down 3 seconds). Worked like a charm...
I tend to think that all of the digital front loaders for all brands will have a problem like this once in a while, as they are fairly complex compared to the prior generation of washer/dryers.
However - your problems with your new machine sounds bad - like you may have gotten a lemon.
I bet they would send you a new replacement machine at no charge if you called Maytag... I would try that first before shopping for a different brand/model...
