Hi,
I think you've actually got an uprated control board.

Modern designs allow for less water usage - most in as you say about 3"
Water level is determined in 2 ways #1 pressure - A pressure switch is used with an inverted container low down in the water. As level rises, pressure builds untill the switch opens and the water shuts off.
#2 Time - The valve is only allowed to open for a preset time (to prevent flooding)
If the first board was faulty, the pressure switch probably was being ignored, so was overfilling.
Older models also used more water per wash.

Shutting off after 10 minutes on a quick wash? - if it performs a full cycle in this time, it's working normally. As I said - just updated.

Let me know if there are any defects or faults , otherwise, it seems to be "modernised" by using the new board.

Help! How to fix F28 error on Maytag 4000 series Model MHWE400WW01?


I went through this some time ago with my whirlpool duet washer. I had the service man come out after I replaced the mcu and still did not work. He told me that he had no way to check for sure that it was the ccu but said he thinks that I should replace it so I did and it solved the problem.. I still don't understand why he could not tell me for sure that the ccu was the problem because it cost a lot to order it.

you'll need to call someone in on this one,boards are very expensive and like it says it names both the ccu and mcu boards or the motor,if you call say whirlpool they might give you the part but you pay for labor and they will have the boards on the truck,the guy will replace one board at a time to see what one is bad,not like the older machines that you can check the parts with a meter.good luck

What is F 6?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F06 in your whirlpool duet indicates that the control is unable to properly detect the motor speed and so the washer shuts down. This usually occurs during high speed spin and the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the wire harness connections between the Driver motor and the Motor control unit (MCU). If that is fine then check the connection between the MCU & central control unit (CCU), replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Mfw97000sq1 model. had problem with error code f11 could you tell me what wrong?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F11 is a communication error between the central control unit (CCU) and the motor control unit (MCU). To start with check the wire harness connections between CCU and MCU, and then check the motor. If both of them appear to be working fine then it seems that the MCU of your washer has gone bad as the control unit seems to be working fine. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

When i try and turn it on, a code comes up f 01


Model #MHWZ600TW01, this unit would display an F01 error immediately after the start button was pressed. This error is an EEPROM communication failure of the electronic control board and is an internal failure that basically indicates the washer no longer thinks it's a washer. Since the repair requires the board to be replaced, I installed a new control board and now it has started washing again. A word of caution. Whirlpool has been making a lot of changes to the control boards of their front load washers (yes Maytag too) so make sure you are ordering the correct model using the full model number including the last two digits. If you install the wrong board, you may find yourself trying to fix a self induced problem.

Later models of Maytag washers are manufactured by Whirlpool, so these instructions should apply. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
