Question about Maytag MAH9700AWM Neptune Front Load 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.

SOURCE: e3 keeps poping up
The e3 code has to do with the Hall Sensor. This is a sensor that looks at motor RPM. There have been some issues with the wire harness or the harness connectors being loose. You can also get the code if the sensor itself is loose and cant read the motor RPM. Here is a link to a tech bulletin from Maytag explaining it in more detail and has some pictures so you can see what to check. Hope this will fix your problem.

E3 means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. 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.

SOURCE: hello, i have a maytag
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.
