Maytag epic z washer flashes f-01 error code - Washing Machines

Posted by on

  • jbrock6 Mar 22, 2009

    This is my second maytag epic z machine. The first was returned just under a year old because after 4 replacement parts while still under full warranty, it still did not engage after the start button was selected. My second replacement machine is not even 2 months old and I ran the spin cycle and then could not start it again. There is a F01 code and it will not start. I have unplugged it while the error code is flashing and it still does not work. I have also canceled the cycle and selected rinse and spin, extra rinse and then reselect the cycle and press start. Still not working.
    WHAT A PIECE OFJUNK!!!!!!! These are real lemons, buyers beware.

I had the same problem and the code f01 would flash, I could select the wash and make selections with all the other buttons but once I pushed start it would flash f01. I fixed the problem by not turning the machine off and pulling the power cord out of the wall and it seemed to reset it. I could immediately turn the machine on and it stared working.

So... I got home after working out in the hot FL sun for 12 hrs. My wife says the washing machine is flashing a code and is filled with water. I turn it on and flashes F-01 code. I go to my computer and do my DIY search on the code for my Maytag epicz. Did the push button thing, the pull the cord thing with no luck. Anything to avoid buying a $250 control board. Pulled pressure hose off sensor on top right center under the top cover and replaced and got the machine to run but still would not drain. I have six kids and have to clean out drain trap on a monthly basis. I have replaced the motor about 2 years ago due to broken impeller. So after draining I dumped out the $4.00 in change, penciles,little beads, rocks, hair,and gum wrapers. Maytag did awesome with the huge hard plastic trap in my opinion with six kids. Motor was not running and I noticed it was rather hot . So I took motor out and noticed something wraped around the impeller like a latex glove. Put motor back in and runs like a matag champ again. I am sooo happy that my Maytag's EpicZ F-01 code does not mean a $250 dollar borad but means condom stuck in the motor impeller..LMAO..

SOURCE: Maytag Epic-Z F-28 error code

F28 is a misc error,
most of the time it is because the washer is NOT LEVEL.
1. Unplug waher,
2. Relevel washer. (make sure all legs are equally distributing weight, so as to ensure no shaking). See owner's manual.
3. Plug in, and use.
Hope this helps.

F01 means the main control board or "micro computer" has detected an internal short. Unfortunately, the only way to correct this issue is to replace the control board itself. It's under the top panel in the front right corner.

My Maytag washer has a flashing F 15. What does that mean?

The following list of codes indicates an electronics communication problem with the washer: * Epic® washer - F05, F07, F09, F10, F11, F13, F14, F15, F21, F22, and FdU
* Epic ZTM washer - F01, F11, F23, F24, F27, F28, F29, F30, F31, and F33

To remove the error display, press Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel twice.


If Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel does not work:
  1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
  2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
  3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.
NOTE: If the error remains on the display, call for service.

Hope this helps.
