F24 indicates a water temperature sensor error. If during the wash cycle in the water-heating step, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range the F24 error code will display. Possible causes: Too cold of water or hot water is turned off.

To access, you will have to UNPLUG your washer and remove the lower access panel under the door. The panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge. HINT: If you place a 2 x 4 under the front feet of the washer, it will make access to the screws much easier. If the panel sticks, a tap on the sides will knock it free. The panel will drop down then come off. The sensor (NTC) is located at the base of the wash tub in the front on the heating element. This will be a small square shaped plug between the heating element terminals. Make sure this plug is secure and not loose or unplugged. It is common for the connector plug to come loose due to vibration. If the plug is intact, check the contacts for corrosion. If everything appears as it should, then unplug the wire harness and take a resistance check. Readings will be as follows:

Temperature Meter Reading
32°F (0°C) 35.9 K ohms
86°F (30°C) 9.7 K ohms
104°F (40°C) 6.6 K ohms
122°F (50°C) 4.6 K ohms
140°F (60°C) 3.2 K ohms
158°F (70°C) 2.3 K ohms
203°F (95°C) 1 K ohms

Roughly...around 9K ohms at room temperature if I'm reading the chart correctly. Take readings as listed and also double check the connector to make sure it is not oxidized. Try cleaning the plug and reconnecting to see if the error code goes away. If not, you will probably have to replace the sensor. If the sensor checks good, take a reading across the heating element terminals. It should indicate about 15 ohms.

Lastly, remove the washer top panel by removing the three screws holding the panel in place in the rear. Once the screws are removed, slide the panel back then off. Locate the Central Control Unit (CCU) directly behind the wash tub. Take a resistance check at the Heating Element Solenoid by removing connector 9 from the CCU (this is the second connector from the RIGHT as facing from the front). A reading across test points 1 & 2 should also read 15 ohms.

The SUD code is a result from oversudsing. BE SURE to use an HE detergent. The f21 code shows the machine is taking too long to drain as a result of too many suds. Start the washer with a cap full of fabric softener and nothing else. If it goes through the cycle as it should then you're good. If it doesn't, then replace the pump.

Bad ECU or motor controller. Remove the motor controller first, located on the left just behind the lower front panel. Remove the control board from the white housing and look for a burn spot.

The control panel is locked. This is a safety feature on some models to keep children from pressing buttons and starting the machine. The USE and CARE manual will tell you how to disable the control lock. If the control doesn't unlock the have the customer take the machine back and get a Speed Queen. The ECU is faulty on the Maytag. I'm seeing lots of appliances from Whirlpool that don't work new out of the box at present.

Remove the water supply hoses. Look in the back of the water valve and you will see a screen that most likely has lots of debris, especially if you are on well water supply. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and remove the screen. Rinse the screen thoroughly and replace it in the valve. BE SURE TO REPLACE THE SCREEN! Also check the hose washers as sometimes they also have screens. If they are dirty, then remove, rinse, and replace.

Sounds like the electronic shut off valves are not working or the main board is not communicating correctly with those valves

first thing to do is a reset. unplug it for 5 min and plug back in to see if it resets to factory settings.

i don't know. i just repaired a top load with same symptoms.
I found the pin on lid did not quite reach the 'CLOSED SWITCH'. finger on lid was plastic so i had to lift lid and raise pressure switch by wrapping a ribbon of sheet aluminum around it so plastic lid pin could reach it. do not
cheat this safety switch as it shuts off spin so folks won't loose their arm. DO NOT BY PASS THIS SAFETY SWITCH.
