Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is one of the better features of this machine it is simply telling you that the pump filter is clogging up and needs to be cleanned out
This is done by first unplugging the machine (THIS IS A MUST THIS ALSO WILL ELIMINATE THE ERROR WHEN YOU ARE THRU)
now you have to remove the lower panel by the floor in the front there may be a screw on the inside of the lip on each side of the panel ok. then once this is off look into the area and you will see the pump now on the pump or just to the side of the pump you will see what looks like a plug or a round thing with a place you can get a hold of and unscrew simply unscrew it if it is really hard you may have to use a pair of pliers or a wrench once it is off clean it really well and lookand see if therere is stil stuff in the piping then clean it really well and reinstall the plug snug so it wont leak then plug it back in and attempt to retry the machine ok the error should be gone if not let me know and i will show you what needs to be done next.
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike

Tip

Washing Machines will not rinse or spin


If the water won't drain out of your washing machine, either something is stuck in the drain hose or pump, or the pump is broken. Both fixes are simple if you're even just a little bit handy with tools. We're showing the repair on a Maytag washing machine.
What is wrong with a washer that does not spin?
If your washer fills with water but doesn't agitate, the problem is likely to be a faulty lid switch, a broken belt, or a problem with the motor. (Note: Direct-drivewashing machines do not have belts.) To diagnose the problem, do the following: 1Check the washing machine's spin cycle.

What causes a washing machine not to drain and spin?
If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing.

Remove washing machine filter for cleaning: How do I remove the filter on my Bosch class iXX front load washing machine for cleaning? We can turn it 1/3 anticlockwise but it won't pull out.


Something must be jamming the filter. You will need to just keep working it. If you cannot get it to open, you will need to replace the whole assembly.

Maytag maxima door locked


Similar problem here - pump was set for a 58 minute normal cycle, I look in and see it is now showing 67. Hmm. Attempt to shut it off because it is just sitting there pumping and pumping. Power shuts off but pump keeps running and add garment light flashing red. Cannot open door (to add garment or not) Unplug the unit and the door will not open. Anybody got a clue what's up? I have a wash in, service is closed due to a storm today. Just bugs me that it is 6 months old and seems to act up a fair bit electronically.

My washer did fill, but won't spin or drain now and the door won't open


Hi tragz,

If it can't drain, it won't spin. There may be something preventing the pump from draining in the Pump filter. You will need to clean it.

Please follow my below Tip on how to do it:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

Kind Regards d")
