Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer
There is an over-current detected from the motor. It happens when the motor is overloaded, the tub bearing is restricted, the rotor itself is stuck or the motor winding has short circuits.
Remove the rear panel to access then pull the drive belt while turning the drive pulley to remove it. Once the belt is off, turn the drive pulley and the motor pulley to check if there's any restriction found. The pulleys can be turned freely when there's no any restriction.
Check the resistance of the motor windings to verify an open or short circuit condition. Set the meter to the lowest multiplier setting for accurate reading. The test can be done on the motor harness connector connected to the control board connector C9. Measure the resistance between the terminals of the motor harness connector and you should a nominal resistance of approximately 3 ohms on each phase. Other than that, recheck resistance directly at the motor terminals to verify the continuity of the motor harness. Replace the harness if there's a huge disparity in the reading. Replace the motor is the windings turn out shorted or open.
