SOURCE: Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow

My Oasis was overflowing, ONLY on cycles which add a lot of water, like sheets, bulky. The repair tech from Sears basically said I was wrong because it couldn't overflow because the machine fills by time. Ha! He ran the express cycle and it didn't overflow. He left, I turned it on and it overflowed. Well, I called and he said that the main computer board must be out, just a little over $200! Came here (where I should have come first) and opened the machine. I found a small rub hole in the tube, taped it shut, and voila! Machine works. Will order a new hose

Yes, the only other thing I would do and you may have done this is to put the hose directly over in the washer tub and turn the water on to check the flow. If that's good then replace the water valve.

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Code f 20 what does that mean and how can I fix it.


A possible solution to an f 20 fill error for a whirlpool duet washing machine. Blow out the pressure hose that connects to the pressure switch.

Before doing any of these fixes first ask yourself if you have over loaded the machine. Too many Bulky - heavy items will cause this same message.
How to fix Whirlpool Duet F20 Error:
Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the F20 error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.
If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.
One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load duet washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses.

I get an F H code. I bought a new inlet value which fixed the problem for about two weeks. I then installed the old one wich lasted another 2 weeks. How can I find and fix the correct problem. Maytag ...


Hello,

As i suppose you know by replacing the water inlet valve that the F-H error code means now water was detected entering the washer. having replaced the water valve,one thing you should check,espically if using"aqua flow flood stop" braided steel inlet hoses from the house water supply,is if water is flowing through the inlet hoses into the washer, if your using that type of hose from the faucet they have a problem in them and the internal flood stop device inside the hose fails and even though the water faucets are on no water is getting into the washing machine. Also or even if using those type hoses disconnect them from washer and check for water flow through them when not connected to washer. If water flow is good into washer replace this part called the flow meter part # W10110225 it measures and tells the control that water is coming into the washer. It the flow meter can of course be purchased where you got the water inlet valve.

Good luck,
Gene

I have a 4000 Series Maytag Frontload Washer that is blinking with a F-20 error code. I am trying to find out what this means.


The F20 code usually means a washer fill problem. It could be low water pressure or no water pressure. Check that your water valves are open on both the hot and cold inlets. Check the hoses for kinks or damage that interrupts the water flow. Check for debris in the inlet filters and clean the filters. Some anti-flood hoses can close their internal valve if the water pressure builds up. This could cause the machine to see no water pressure. What is your water pressure (it should be above 10 psi)? If you have a water well, this could could give low water pressure to the washer and trigger the error.

Replace the hoses if needed. If you have a High Efficiency washer, make sure to use HE detergent. Excess suds could cause the incoming water flow to be judged as low.

See http://maytag.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2887/~/display-shows-f20-or-fh---front-load-washer for details.

I hope this helps.

I have a error code washer mayta f20


Hi,

"F20" indicates a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) in your washer. To resolve this issue check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.


Thank you!!
