SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Front Loader - E2 error code

The first time my E2 code came on the washer won't rinse or spin. I checked the drain pump to make sure it was working. (1) Take the back off and pull the two drain lines off pump. Be careful the line going to the drain has a backflow flap, make sure you don't tear it.

(2) On the other side where it drains from the washer to the pump is where I found a bobbie pin that had collected lint and was blocking the drain flow.

When it can't drain the E2 code comes on to let you know it won't rinse or spin.

Make sure to unplug machine before removing back,

Hope this helps everybody with E2 problems.

SOURCE: od code

od code is supposed to mean that lid has not been opened for the last 3 completed cycles. Also, apparently you tried the service mode and found the door lock to be working. So, unless the problem is with the electronic board itself the only other thing that could be happening is a faulty sensing switch at the door lid or a bad connection to it. I would try shorting the leads from the switch and see if the problem goes away. Then you might just need a new switch.

SOURCE: I have a Maytag Model MAH8700aww washer

The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope this helps you.

The code is actually "2E".
The 2E refers to a problem with the motor control board. It has sensed a fatal error. The corrective actions needed in this case is the motor control board to be replaced. Here is the replacement control board.

Have a code 2E

Hi there:
One 2E error occurs when washer detects a high or low voltage issue. In many cases, restarting the cycle clears the error.

Other posibilitie, could be the main control board is defective and needs to be replaced.

What does error code 2E 20 mean when the copier just cuts off with the paper halfway through.

Hello dmdymer... The e2-20 error code usually indicates an exposure lamp or a composite power board.... It is most commonly the exposure lamp and as a genuine article will set you back less than $100AU... You will have to get a repair done on it I am sorry to say!
All the best...

Neptune tl washer computer going bad?

If it’s a FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW the Control Board is under warranty for five years from date of purchase. I’ll assume it is and attach a link to the service manual. You can call the Maytag customer service number and check on the warranty status of your machine. They will ask for the serial number of the machine that is located on the right back side of the console for the FAV6800AW or FAV9800AW. To have any warranty parts replaced you will have to go thru an authorized repair service. Maytag customer service will supply info for a repair service.
This type of issue is very difficult to troubleshoot. A test you can do is put the machine in Service Mode and read the error codes from your machine. I would be looking for error code 15 for a “stuck key” error and error code 11 Will not remember machine settings”. I would also try the Membrane Keyboard Check and see if you pass that test. I suspect a control board issue or possible corrosion issues at the Membrane Keyboard socket on the control board.
I’ll try to help if you have DIY skills and a can tolerate the machine down time.

MAH8700A Error code 2E What does this mean?

According to the trouble shooting manual that came with my Maytag MAH8700A, code 2E refers to "Voltage for motor control bus is under specified limit." It states that the action to be taken is to "replace motor control board."

Information code signals "2E"

birdy, this 2E is the code for voltage to the motor control is either over or under specifications. You might have a harness loose on the motor control board. I have run into a few of these where all it was, is one harness not seated all the way. I believe you can get to it by removing the back center panel and it should be down on the right. Check all the harnesses going to it. Reset them if possible. You can also try putting it through the self test. Press and hold the chime and xtra rinse button together for 3 seconds. When the display shows 0, press and hold the wash/rinse and soil level keys for 3 seconds. It should go in the self test mode. It will check all the componets. If it passes, it will display a PA. If an error exists it will display SC. Look for a code of 91. back
