This could bew a Control Board issue or a Motor Control board issue. You really need both known good parts to nail down fore sure..... but I would try the Control Board first. The FAV6800A and FAV9800A Motor is under warranty for 10 years. Did you go through Maytag for the repair service call?

I have three machines in the family and do all my own repairs. From my limited experience the Motor is rock solid and I would question why the repair service replaced it. Did he do any diag's on the Motor....i.e. winding resiatance, place the machine in a test mode page 15 and 16 of the Service Manual. The Control Board and Motor Controller will be out of warranty. I buy them for pennies on the dollar from previous owners that part the machine out on ebay.........Rich

Yes Elizabeth if you don't DIY the fix it's no worth having a repair service touch the machine.

What does error code Lr mean


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

Tub filled with water, Lr code


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

Enter Service Mode by simultaneously 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 off button or hit the Presoak key.


This process is documented in the Service Manual. 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.



If I could ask you to do a little troubleshooting;

It sounds like the wash/agitate cycle completes and you enter into the spin cycle of the selected wash cycle is that correct. When the wash cycle fails does the Cycle Status LED indicate that the washer is in the Spin cycle?

With a empty wash basket no wash load in the basket and you start a Spin Only cycle will the Spin Only cycle complete?

If the washer will start the cycle do you hear and loud Spin Only cycle noise such as metal against metal grinding noise?

With the washer off and no clothes in the wash basket can you open the lid then Spin the wash basket as fast as you can in the CCW direction the only direction. The wash basket should spin CCW several rotations and coast down to a smooth stop dose it?

I’m checking for Outer Tub increased bearing resistance…..Rich

Fills with water then code LR comes up and it does nothing


Hello tombs72,

Unffortunately the LR code means locked rotor. Normally this requires replacing the motor and motor control board (sold together as one unit). I hope this answers your question.

Thanks,

Neptune MAH55FLBWW front load washer LR code


LR = Locked (main motor) Rotor and very likely a new motor will be needed but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

Wont work, flashes LR


rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos
