Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Washer will not fill.

Hi: My washer will fill anywhere from 1 to about 10 second when I release the start button. I've cleaned screens and water flow seams to be ok. Bypassed pressure switch with no change. What else should I check for?

Thankyou for your help

Should check if there is good pressure at the inlet faucet. If good, then you have to replace your inlet valve, which is easy to do. First check to see if the wires to the valve are connected well.

HE3t has an FH error code checked the following and are OK. pressure switch, flow meter, and inlet valves water flows in without restriction. What else could it be? Craig


Hi,

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.

FH error code means low water inflow. In this error washer is not filling when the fill valve opens.
To clear the error please follow the bellow instructions:-
Press the "Stop" button twice with your finger. This cancels the cycle and stops the washer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.Turn the water shut off valves clockwise to stop the water flow to the washer through the supply hoses. Pull the washer away from the wall enough that you can access the hose connections at the back of the washer.

Set a bucket under the area of the hose connections. Unscrew the hose connections from the back of the washer. If necessary, use a pair of slip joint pliers to help start the connections turning until you can turn them by hand. Set the ends of the hoses inside the bucket.Inspect the screens on the inlet ports on the back of the washer where the hoses connect. Sediment and other debris can block these screens, causing fill problems. Clean the screen with an old toothbrush.

Thread the hoses back onto the washer. Look for kinks in the hoses. Kinks cut off water supply to the washer which causes the FH error code. Once you connect the hoses, turn the water supply valves counter-clockwise to supply water to the washer. Move the bucket away from the washer and push the washer back into its working position.Plug the power cord back into the outlet and start the wash cycle again. If the FH error code comes up again, call a service repairman. If the hoses have no kinks and the inlet screens are clean, there is a problem with either the pressure switch or the flow meter.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Water continues to run into the washing machine through the whole wash cycle and even when the machine is off. I have to keep the tape turned off. other than that the washing machine functions normally.


Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:

- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket

SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)

Stop Fill

Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.

START warm fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)

STOP FILL

- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply

TEST HOT and COLD fill

Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.

If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.

I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.

Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,
Kelly

What does LF mean?


It is a long fill error. It flashes when the machine control board detected no change in the water level or the water level is not reached in a certain period of time during the fill cycle. Water is probably not entering the tub due to the water inlet valve not functioning or water enters the tub but not properly due to clogged fill hose screens.

Press the Pause/Cancel button to clear the error on the display. Remove the fill hoses from the water inlet valve assembly at the back of the machine and check the screens. Clean the screens and replace it if necessary. Make sure that the water supply valve is open and water is present.

Put the machine in standby mode (only the Clothes Clean indicator is on) and activate the Manual Diagnostic Test Mode to check the operation of the water inlet valve.
  1. Select any one button except Power, Stop, and Stop.
  2. Press and hold the button for 3 seconds-->Release the button for 3 seconds--> Press and hold the button for 3 seconds-->Release the button for 3 seconds--> Press and hold the button for 3 seconds
  3. Press the same button when all indicators on the console are illuminated and "88" is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display. A single beep sounds and display shows the two digit console ID number for 3 seconds. The displayed ID number will change to "00" and the Add a Garment indicator will flash.
  4. Select Whitest Whites cycle.
  5. Press Start>Wash/Rinse Temp. The water inlet valve should turn on and fill the tub according to the Wash/Rinse Temp selection.
  6. Press Start to turn off the valve.
  7. Press Stop or Power button to exit diagnostic test mode.

When my washer is filling with cold water only it just dribbles in. It takes about 1 hr to fill the entire washer. When I fill it with warm or hot I don't have the problem.


Make sure that you have good flow at the wall outlet first. Second, remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer and clean the screen filter there.

If the above doesn't help then you probably have a bad valve inside the machine.

Won't run


Most washers today will not do anything after fill unless it sees the lid switch (innerlock system) closed. The same as having the lid of the washer up during a wash cycle. They will fill but until the timer, or ECB gets a signal back from the pressure switch (water level switch) it will go no further. Some of the electronic machines will also time out in the fill cycle because of a lack of water flow. The fill cycle is a timed event and if the water level switch ( controlled by the ECB ) does not close in the time alloted, it will stall. This can be checked by hitting the start button again. Most of these problems are caused by a lack of water flow on the initial start up. Cleaning your water inlet screens in the supply hoses and screens in the mixing valve itself will solve this issue.More information to the specific model would help pin-point this problem.

No flow


Hello hedrickcari
Welcome,

You said, you are getting a no flow error code. This washer was installed today.If I have an air pocket, how do you get it out so the washer senses the water flow?

First I would unplug the washer for 5 minutes and see if it resets and clears the errors!



Make sure the door is tightly closed. (Unlike top-loaders, front-loading washing machines must be closed in order for water to begin filling. Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.)

Then make sure the machine is plugged in to a live (or working) electrical outlet. It's a good idea to check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if needed or check the fuse if you have a fuse box.

Next, turn the control dial to the proper cycle and push the START/STOP button firmly. Then turn both faucets (hot and cold) on all the way. Take a look at the inlet hoses (which go from your pipes to your washer) and straighten them out if necessary.

Turn off the faucets and then disconnect the hoses. Clean the hose filter screens to remove any blockage that could be plugging up the water line.

Then replace the filter screens, reconnect the hoses, turn the faucets back on, open and close the door, and push the START/STOP button firmly one more time.

You should be rewarded with the sound of water beginning to fill up your Maytag® Neptune® washer. If you aren't, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900.

Error H F


this code will set for two reasons if the washer doesent start filling after 30 seconds or fills to10.5 gallons in eight minutes and the pressure sensor hasnt triped so time it and post a reply to your message letting me know which condition exist make sure your drain hose isnt too deep in your drain pipe as this will siphon water out as it fills and mke the washer think the second condition exists consult your owners manual for proper drain hose instalation
