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.

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.

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW with error code tE, lower case t and upper case E. What causes it. I finally got it in diagnostic mode and it says U133 but wont go any further.


"te" error code is caused by a faulty thermistor; likey cause is:
a. Loose wiring at the control panel (directly behind the cycle selector knob)
b. Broken wire at the thermistor (located at the bottom/front of the tub)

To access the wire plug connectors at the control pannel, remove the top cover of the washer. Stand in front of the washer and look for the plug connectors behind the control panel. Pull apart the plugs and re-install.

Test the washer. If the "te" error still occurs it will be neccesary to remove the front panel as well (two sets of special plier-type tools are needed).

Inspect the thermistor closely, with good lighting. If there's a break in the wire it will be at or near the black sheathing / heat shrink material.

Just like a reference guide, this service manual could helpful: MAH9700AW

Hope this helps.

Code E 3 On Maytag MAH8700AWW


3E means overcurrent detected at the motor.

Open the control panel, there should be a tech sheet in there that explains how to put the machine into service mode (press chime and extra rinse keys for three seconds) and what to do while in service mode to track this down. Once on service mode, you can cycle through and retrieve all diagnostic codes, and lots of other stuff that'll help you track this down.

You can also go ahead and check out the windings on the motor. Unplug harness connector and test from wire insertion side.

Pin #1 and Pin #2 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
Pin #1 and Pin #3 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
Pin #2 and Pin #3 of CN9 == 11.6 ohms
If the error code somes 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.

Hope helps.

Maytag Neptune Washer MAH8700AWW will not spin. It will fill, drain, tumble ect but will not spin. i tried a quick spin test and it sounds like it is trying to drain after all the water drains. I went...


You may have tried this, but check the door switch, and the pressure switch(water level switch) to see if either could be bad. both of those affect whether the washer spins or not.

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. Catriver..post back
