Question about Maytag Washing Machines
LR is a locked rotor. Usually when I've gotten this error code in the past, you have to replace the motor control board and motor as a kit. However, if this kit has to be installed due to a bad motor, the motor carries a 5 year warranty. If it has to be replaced due to a bad board, the board only has a 2 year warranty. The snag is they have to be replaced together as neither of the old parts is made anymore. I can tell you already the motor/ board kit costs about $300 just for the part. However, since these are expensive machines, I would recommend having a maytag authorized tech come out if the unit is less than 5 years old. It would be worth the service call (and armed with this knowledge) to see if the part can't be replaced under warranty. (wouldn't be a bad idea to have your owners manual ready to show that the motor has a 5 year warranty on it as well) Most warranty companies don't know from model to model which parts are under warranty without the owners manual.
