Question about Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer

Maytag front loading washing machine

I have a Maytag front loading washing machine (model number MAH2400AWW). When the unit is started it will run normally for part of the cycle, then stop and show an error code of 3E. I called Maytag Customer Support, and they could not give me the meaning of this error code. I would appreciate anyone who is familiar with this error code to forward the information. Same 3E code. My washer is only 22 months old and I have to replace it since the fix is nearly as expensive as a new machine and the Maytag mah2400aww washer and matching dryer are such prolematic junk not supported by their useless manufacturer, it is less of a pain just to cut losses now. I had six major repairs on the dryer the first year and the washer hasn't worked correctly since month 11. Maytag refuses to honor lemon laws, won't back their product and provides the worst service company I have ever had to deal with. NEVER buy a Maytag, who are now owned by Wirlpool!

    I put a load of laundry in and the cycle seemed to be operating as usual, when all of a sudden it just stopped and the 3E code flashed on the screen. I tried to restart things several times, and when I called Maytag they said they were not familar with that code. When we called a repair man he came out, looked at the machine (the laundry was still in the tub) and said the load was too heavy and too small, so he and my husband loaded up more clothes and he left. Needless to say the same thing happened and the same code flashed on the screen. It's pretty sad when you call Customer Service and a Service Rep and they have no idea what the code means. We are having the repairman return again tomorrow to tell him his suggestion just didn't work, and maybe he has another idea since there is defintely something wrong.

    Wash cycle runs normally until it reachs the final spin cycle, then the code 3E shows up. The control board is brand new, the second one in less than a year. running the on board diagnostics does not reveal a problem with the drive system. One thing I have noticed is the pump will keep cycling as if it does not know the water has drained out. The water level sensor output voltage stays at 2.5 volts all the time with no change when the water is filling or draining.

3E = Drive system is not working correctly. Bad windings, speed sensor, wiring connections or Control Board.

My Neptune is shutting down with a SUDS error

Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU.
If machine will start- If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Maytag washer leaking from bottom

This is a fix for the Maytag MAH2400AWW, the machine kept displaying SUDS, the machine is 2-3 years old and it started doing this 4-5 months ago. I cleaned out the washer, and used HE detergent, ran it empty, to try to flush it out, used approved cleaners and ran it throught the cycle, still no good. I finally took out out a maintenance contract with BSF, the service guy came out today pulled the pump off and showed me inside it was missing half of the blades off the impeller. I remembered a year ago a coin had wedged in the pump which I took out and put back, not realising it had taken some teeth off the pump. Therefore the pump was not able to pump out the sudsy water very well which was staying inside the drum causing the suds light to come on, they installed a new pump for me, which was covered in the contract for free. Now it's working like new again.

The Maytag repairman says my model number is MAH2400AWW. You tell me: No manuals found for mah2400aww manuals. What now?

Check for yourself, pull the washer out, and check the back. model numbers/serial numbers are normally tagged on the back.

Washer runs when timer dial turned though ON button not pushed

Problem solved by ourselves! It was NOT in the circuit board (brain) of the machine. It was NOT in the door locking assembly as others would lead us to believe. It WAS the on/off switch on the control panel--part number 22002560 - a $22.00 problem fix.
