Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not have the decode for 'F30' in my list BUT just in case I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

What does E6 mean on a baumatic bwm70


E6 on the bwm70 means that there is a water sensor level error. You can try resetting the error code to see if it comes back on by pressing and holding the the power on, start/stop button, or unplug the washer, wait 30 seconds and try again. If you still get the E6 code, your washer will need to be serviced

What is the se code that comes up on the oven, and it wount work? How can we fix this error code?


Hi longislandlu,

SE stands for "Sensor Error". This appears if the keypad is held down for longer than 10 seconds but if not held down this means that your humidity sensor has shorted and needs to be replaced. You will need to uninstall the entire unit and remove the outer shell to access the sensor that needs to be replaced. It will be mounted somewhere around one of the vent on the cavity of the microwave. You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central.

Hope this helps.

Error code F8 keeps coming up. I was trying to run the self clean program and it wouldn't work. Now error code keeps coming up regardless of what mode oven is in


Hi vicktys,

The error code F8 that you are getting from your machine means that there's something wrong with the door locking switch. You need to check if there's any loose wiring as well as the door locking switches. If the wiring is fine you might need to replace the door latch assembly.You may contact Sears for the replacement part at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central.

My maytag oven has a function error. F5 and F3


Hi sorianocynth,

Maytag error F5 and F3 do have different indications. Error F5 means watchdog and hardware conflict. The only way to resolve this is to replace clock (ERC). On the other hnd, F3 means you have shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD). Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

For replacement part you may contact Sears at 1-800-252-1698; M-F 6:30 AM-10:30 PM - Sat 7:00 AM-9:30 PM - Sun 7:30 AM-9:30 PM - All times Central. When they send out the part detailed instruction will be provided.

Hope this helps.
