Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
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?
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.
