Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error Lr means locked rotor, this issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and windings. If the wiring is good and windings are not burnt then you'll need to replace your motor and motor control board. These are sold as one unit, it is a 3 phase motor and one of the phases is bad. A little power surge can damage the boards. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Error codeLr?


The LR code means "locked rotor" which is just a way of saying the control is not seeing the motor turning.

The image below contains the wiring diagram for this washer as you requested but there are some other things to consider.

Usually when the LR code is displayed the motor has stopped turning for some reason. By definition the LR code means the control has tried to turn the motor but was unable to.

The error code can be caused by to large of load, to much soap/suds in the water or a problem with the spin bearing. The cause of the LR message can be little problem like suds or a major problem like the spin bearing and sometimes it's difficult to pin down. You don't mention in your question if the LR code occurs every load or once a week.

More information on when the error is occurring would be helpful resolving this problem. Try running a rinse and spin cycle empty and see if the washer completes the cycle.

The 2nd image contains the information on how to enter and run a diagnostic cycle which may help pin the source of the problem down. This test completes all functions of the washer is a short time. It will fill, tumble, drain and spin all is a few minutes. At the end of a successful test cycle a PA should display which means "Passed" and is what you want to see.

My Maytag washer will not complete a cycle. The code Lr is display on the front of the washer. I have pulled the plug and reset the breaker.


Hi.

LR stands for locked rotor. The code is returned by the Motor Control Unit (an electronic module connected to the motor and to central control unit). The code is returned when no motion from motor rotor is detected. With many models LR may be due to a factory defect. Please call Maytag and check if any recall has been issued for error LR concerning your washer model. If recall has been issued you will get a kit comprising a new motor and wiring harness.

You can also try temporarily resetting the error by disconnecting power at circuit breaker (or unplugging power cord). If the error message is prompted again call Maytag.

Regards.

The cause of the LR message can be little problem like suds or a major problem like the spin bearing and sometimes it's difficult to pin down. could also possibly be the Water Inlet Valve w/Thermistor #22003834 needs to be replaced due to having Well Water with lots of sand, in the water it is not closing the valve properly allowing water to continue filling the tub, causing it to read the load being too heavy and also leaking out the front door

What does Lr on the display mean? There was a considerable amount of water on the floor and in the machine. I could not get the door to unlock to see what was going on, it just beeped several times and...


the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit board at the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its control board at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or control board at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N 12002039).

Display error code of Lr on control panel


L means "Lid or Door Lock" problem
r probably means 'release' I couldn't find it anywhere... so I'd guess that Lr means the machine did not detect that the Lid Lock released and cycle end (which means either the sensor is bad or the Lid Lock dosen't lock the Lid).

Either way, something with the Lid Lock system ais not right. Be glad it releases ;-)
