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.

Bad smell inside washer


Every Frontload washer on the market today has a smell issue or potential to have one quite easily.In fact the smell problem has been there since these Frontload washers were introduced. The real kick is instead of recognizing the problem and addressing it some of the manufacturers have even started selling consumers cleaners to help reduce the smell problem. Yes they are profiting on the sale of cleaners, that deal with an issue they created. The closest they have come to addressing the issue is adding an extra cycle to your washer strictly for cleaning the washer. Basically you clean your washer so it can clean your clothes. Why didn't the salesperson tell you about the issue? Maybe because it was his first day, but probably because he was trying to sell you a washer.
Now all this said, is there anything you can do? First and foremost make absolutely sure you are using a HE (high efficency) detergent. Frontload washers use a very little amount of water and the HE detergent is not only concentrated so you use less but it is not as thick as regular detergent so it has a better chance of washing away clean. Concentrated detergent is NOT HE detergent and still may pose an issue if used. If you Don't know what HE detergent is, call the manufacturer, your grocery store, or the sales guy who sold it to you. On average you will never need more than 2 tablespoons per load. DO NOT go by the cap fill lines ever. These lines make the assumption everyone has the same water, load the washers the same and have equally dirty clothes. More is NEVER better in a Frontload. Bottom line is you want to make sure all the detergent is getting cleaned out of the washer after each use. If any remains it will start to deteriorate and deteriorating detergent can smell.
Secondly when you are done using the unit for the day, use a towel to dry off the rubber door boot and the inner door. Don't be afraid to pull the boot some to get as much of the water off as possible. The rubber is pretty thick and sturdy. And if at all possible leave the door open as long as possible to help what water is left inside the washer to evaporate. The washers have vents on the back but they do not work as well as venting on a top-load washer. Basically the water drops will collect in the bottom after usage and if the door gets closed that water can get stagnant, grow bacteria and even mold. These will also cause lovely fragrances to tickle your nose.
Finally if you want to try some of the washer machine cleaners they may help some to clean away any buildup that may be already inside the washer. However it seems silly to pay so much for a washer and have to continually maintain a problem that is caused by the washer with cleaners produced by the washers manufacturer. If you try and cut back as much as possible (2 tablespoons) on detergent, and allow as much water to be cleaned out or evaporate the smells will resolve themselves. A good test to use if you think you have a buildup is fill the washer on it hottest cycle with the drum empty. Let it wash around for a few minutes and just look inside and see if you see suds. Suds in the washer tells you soap is still in the tub somewhere.

If you are experiencing greasy marks on your cloths, let me ask a question. Are...


90% of greasy marks on cloths is due to scum build in the outer bowl of your machine...top loaders being the most vulnerable. prevention is better than cure. At least one hot wash a week on high level. If your machine is an early model one or two with a good bleach subject to manufacturers instruction...bleach is very cost effective and works well.

Try running the washer with detergent and a box of baking soda--no clothes--and HOT water. Do you have very hard water in your area?

good day.
Water may have been able to disrupt the units system.
Leave your unit to dry for 2 days. The system will just reset itself then.

Powder or Liquid


. HE detergent is a must for these machines first and foremost. as a genral rule liquid detergent breaks down better in cold water, so performs better in washers(cold water rinses). powder breaks down better in hot water which is why its reccomneded for d/w's.that being said i dont really mind which is used where so long as your not experiencing cleanig problems, at that point its when i reccomend using the appropriateone. whirlpool has now reccomneded a product called AFFRESH, tablets that can be used to clean out you frontloading machine incase of residual build op and/or odors.
