    same problem on MAH8700 front loader. replaced control board and still doesn't work. ordering new motor. hope it will fix it.

  • Sawmilldon Feb 07, 2009

    My motor went out first. Bad winding visible (it is a 2 speed motor, so it is possible for it to work in low speed, and not in high)

    Now the 3E is back with a vengeance. Sometimes 3-4 times per load, sometimes not at all.

    The conventional wisdom says that the control board is not getting tach info from the motor. The Hall Effect sensor is inside the motor, so I have replaced it already. There is a service bulliten on the harness, says to look for a pin pushed back in the connector. Mine is fine.
    I will probably go to a new style connector that isn't as cheap, then move on to replacing the control board.

    It is just 3 years old. What a piece of ****.

Model wf361. What is causing e3 error?


e3. Drive motor tach fault. This means that the tachometer is not regitering any motor movement when it should. Main reasons for samsung: motor control board fault. Tachometer fault. Motor fault. Also check wireing from motor control board to motor. But this issue is not common at all with samsung.

I have a NFW7200TW Amana Washer. The problem is my wife said she saw a E3 error and then a nd error. I fixed the pump for the nd error but I don't know what the E3 error is. When I tried to run th


E3 Error: Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual check shows motor is not moving. (Locked, Hall Sensor fault). Replace the hall sensor.
The "hall" sensor is an internal circuit of the motor. It "tells" the machine control board, what the motor is doing, it's similar to a tachometer on the dashboard of a car. In your case, you want to do the resistance checks on the wires of the CN9 and CN8 connectors at the main control board in the front of the washer (it's easier and more indicative). Unplug the CN9 connector from the control board(red, white and blue wires) testing the pins inside the wire harness connector: from pin#1 /blue to pin#2 /white you should read 3 ohms resistance from pin#1 blue to pin#3/red, you should read 3 ohms resistance. from pin#2/white to pin#3/red, you should read 3 ohms resaistance. That will tell us the motor windings are damaged or not. At the CN8 connector, unplug the connector from the control board and insert the meter probes into the end of the wire harness connector; pin#4/orange to all other pins in the connector should have infinite resistance. pin#3/blue to pin#1/pink should have 4.7 ohms resistance. If you have these resistances, the motor and wiring are OK and you'll need the control board. If the resistances are not within 10% of the ones listed, you'll need to check the wiring harnesses and connections from the control board to the motor, and replace the motor if all checks OK.
Here is a link to the motor.

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

E3 and be error on maytag washer


E3 error code is indicating that the motor should be running but the hall sensor for the motor is not sensing the turning of the motor.

If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

Note - You could disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and see if that resets the control board and solve the problem unless follow what was mentioned above.

For replacement instructions you can download this repair manual for your front load and follow the steps given in the manual and here the search parts.

Hope helps.

I got an E3 flashing, what does that mean. The


Okay; This will essentially be a Hall Sensor fault. The Error code (E3) Is issued when the Motor control board is attempting to drive the motor (during the spin out), but is not seeing any tachometer response readings. The Hall sensor monitors such movements to relay the necessary rotation information to the Motor control board. When the Hall malfunctions, the MCB will assume that the motor is "locked" and it will issue the (E3) code.

The necessary actions are to replace the Hall sensor. Here is a picture of the Stator(Motor) and Hall sensor.

Click here to access the service/repair manual for your unit. This manual will help you disassemble the affected area. You will first need to remove the rear access panel, before gaining access to the affected section. Once the rear panel is removed, focus on page 33-34 to help with removing the stator so that you can replace the damaged hall sensor. Please allow time for the manual to download, due to its size.

  • Once you have replaced the defective Hall sensor, the unit will return to its normal operating status.

E3 error code and a lot of vibration when working. I had a technician check the unit and the E3 error code is for the motor. The motor is working fine though and the tech said I needed a new control board....


“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.

3. A poor connection – Check wire harness connector to motor. Unplug connector and pull on each wire. If a wire connector comes loose from the plug, bend locking tab up

NOTE: If a locking tab is not properly seated in the plug connector, the terminals will not fully engage as the connector is plugged into the Motor Terminal Block. Inspect the terminals on the motor side of the connector. Straighten any bent terminals if they exist. Recheck the harness side of the terminal block if any bent terminals are found. Bent terminals can indicate a problem with the locking tab inside the plug

Reconnect harness plug to Motor Terminal Block. Run washer through a quick service cycle (wash and spin) to check motor operation.
see if that helps..... else u might have to replace the board....

the manufacturers number for ur model is 34001496

Maytag Neptune 9700 getting E3 code,done diagnostics,code shows 25,2E,& bE instructions say replace control board.Anyone else had same problem? Anyone replace board? Did problem resurface after...


A 3E error is an overcurrent detection at the motor. Some people say that unplugging and re-plugging the connector at the motor clears up the problem.

Code E3


The Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tachometer response or motor action. It could have a failed tachometer/hall sensor which is part of the motor, failed motor or machine control. It could be a loose wire connection at the motor or at the machine control board. This type of failure will require a technician to diagnose and repair your washer. I recommend calling a service technician.
