Trouble code E 3

Washer has been performing perfectly for the past year plus. I am aware of the problems Maytag has been having with this machine. Especially touble code "E-3". Within the past week my washer has begun to show this code very frequently.

Can you direct me to any/all solutions available?

Thank You

Check the blower rotational speed if it drops below 500 rpms,during a cycle it will effectall outputs and give error E3

the E3 error code also appear if there is a user interface or software mismatch.or when a component on the control board has failed. so check the board and Replace defective component.or the whole control board

Error code E3


There have been problems with the motor wire harness connector on these washers. The problems are either a loose or bent terminal in the molex connector.


Unplug the connector and tug on each wire. If a wire comes loose from the plug, bend the locking tab up. If a locking tab is not properly seated in the plug connector, the terminals will not fully engage as the connector is plugged into the motor.


Another manifestation of this problem is that one of the terminals may be bent. Inspect the terminals on the motor side of the connector. Straighten any bent terminals if they exist. Recheck the harness side of the terminal block if any bent terminals are found. Bent terminals can indicate a problem with the locking tab inside the plug.

Hello weirc215

Thank you for posting your model number.....so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A issues in this forum.


It is a Clutch issue. The One-Way Roller Clutches in the hub of the clutch are not locking up in Spin cycle. Most times you can get away with a low cost Clutch Maintenance.

See my Clutch Maintenance Post for the details….. Clutch Fix Post It’s posted under my old forum nickname dh1200s.

If you or someone you know have very basic mechanical skills you can do this and save your machine and you $300+ over calling in a repair company that may not know what the issue is.

I will help you or whoever will try to do this. Can you give me the 1st two digits serial number located here?

Matag washer travels across the floor.


Velcro is a silly idea, what you want it to rest the washer on a rubber membrane as this will absorb all vibrations and kinetic energy thus stopping it from moving.

http://www.gkacoustics.com/anti_vibration_rubber_mats.htm this place sells them (aswell as other places) Neoprene Rubber and MLC Closed Cell Rubber is your best bet.

Hope this helps

Should I buy a gently used Maytag dependable care plus model# LAT8824AAE washer? What's the reliability of this machine?


Maytag makes very dependable machines. They are fairly easy to repair and parts are easy to find. If I was in the market for a used washer, a Maytag would be my first choice. Since its used there is no guaranty that the thing isn't going to need repairs. If you can see it run through a cycle before buying it would be a plus. My first washer was a mid seventies model Maytag. I had two minor repairs twice in 15 years and its been working ever since at my buddy's. I hope this helps you.

WASHER MAGIC is the revolutionary product specifically formulated to safely and effectively clean the family washing machine. Top loading machine use whole bottle. Front loading use 1/2 bottle. You may rub Washer Magic on with a rag to eliminate odors.

Why Use WASHER MAGIC? Every time you wash your clothes, hard water and detergents causes lime scale and rust to build up inside the tub, pump and hoses. This build-up reduces the ability of your washing machine to perform. Mineral build-up acts as an abrasive increasing the wear on your clothes. The result: your clothes are not as clean as they could be and wear out sooner.

If you are unhappy with the way your clothes comes out of the wash, then WASHER MAGIC may be the solution you have been looking for. Only WASHER MAGIC can restore the family washing machine to the way it performed when it was new. Use once a month for optimal washer performance and to keep control of trouble causing build-up.
