    I fixed mine. The key was after clearing the drain I had to replace the cover. I wasted another 30 min doing another load not knowing I'd get another error. (Just clear the drain and replace the cover)

Before spending much time and possible unnecessary work, the E1-F6 code may be nothing more than your bottom cover plate is not in place or missing. Recently was servicing a Maytag 2000 series wash and during the inspecting of the cycles it quit and flashed those codes. I had been testing it WITHOUT the bottom cover plate on. When I went to install it back on the code disappeared. Problem simply solved.

    This information was a llfe saver. I had just cleaned my filter and decided to run the washer before putting the cover back on. 15 minute into the cycle the washer stop and flashed E1 F6. Suggestions ranged from hoses to barings. Your s was easiest an it worked. And best of all it was free.

Hi! I had the same error code, and I just turned off the breaker to the machine and turned it back on, essentially because I was too little to move my stacked unit out to unplug it lol (I'm a girl) and it fixed my problem!!! I was just trying the one solution that I could actually do myself before I paid for anow expert! I am so happy! Please at least try the easy fix before you drive yourself crazy or pay an arm and a leg!

I had this problem too, but I just pulled up the plug. After I charging again then the problem solved. Maybe it can help you.

My series 2000 is 3 years old and kept throwing E1 F6 codes I pulled out CCU board cleaned contacts with a pencil eraser, reassembled and checked all the connections I could find. Still threw codes, but only with a load, not if it was empty, I noticed there were 2 empty places for shock absorbers so I put 2 more shocks in it (5 total) Now it works better than new without shaking. The shocks are about $20 on ebay and very easy to install, it was a cheap, easy fix that worked out for me, I hope this helps someone.

SOURCE: Maytag epic he has F6 code

First empty as much water you can thru the front door. There is the filter located right before the water exit pump. Remove the lower panel by unscrewing 3 screws underneath the panel, slide the panel out. You will see a 3 inch cap facing you. Either you must have a shop wet vac or a nice big plastic bag to collect the water which will leak out, there could be plenty. Clean out the filter, you may find coins too. You can pour some clean water into open machine to wash out the hoses. Replace the filter cap carefully, cover,screws.

SOURCE: washer mod# MFW9700SQ0 error code# f6

Drive motor tachometer error(f-6)

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes

• Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor ControlUnit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check the Drive Motor
• Check the MCU
• Check the Wire Harness

Replace failed component.

In most cases, the MCU will need ot be replaced.

What is the model number of this unit. Should be inside the door on the frame. If you take off the bottom panel, there is a tech sheet in there that will tell you what that means. I don't know that one off the top of my head and I can't get at my work P.C.right now. It'll give good detail of what to look for on that tech sheet Let me know if you have any questions.

SOURCE: We just got a brand new MayTag Modle # MHWE200XW00

It is a communication error between the CCU and the MCU. It could be just a poor or loose connection or either the motor control or computer control. try unplugging it for 5 min then plugging it in again.

Take a look at this post and see if will you get you started. This issue was a bad pressure switch, it’s a long post but I feel it will get you started. I’ll be away for the next few days, if this doesn’t help I’m sure another forum member will chime in.
There are links to the SM in that post if you want to troubleshoot and DIY the fix.

Good luck.....

Hi how to fix code E1 toshiba aw-dc1500wubb

The "E1" code indicates there is a drain error, water can not drain fully within the required drain time. Before doing any cleaning or maintenance you want to power off and unplug your washer.
I would suggest removing and cleaning the pump filter and checking the drain hose for a blockage. On a front loading machine there is a circular area toward the bottom front corner. Use a coin, a key or a screwdriver to get that circular trap door opened. Once you have that opened you can pull the hose out to open the block and allow the remainder of the water to drain.
The filter comes out with a twist - remove the filter to clean any coin, pins or any other kind of foreign material. Then replace it and thumb twist to tighten it (you put the hose back, right?) and then close the filter cover.
I believe this should do the trick. Happy washing!

Maytag 2000 series SD then f9e1 shows up and the pump gets hot and washer stops.

If the pump is running but water is not fully emptying you could have a plugged drain on the bottom of the drum. Make certain that the small hole on the drain is clear also. This is very important as this is how the machine knows whether it is empty or not. If there is a filter you will want to clean it also. Good luck.

Washing machine E1

You have not included the make and model of your washer so that makes it pretty hard to answer for sure. A google search shows that several makes have an error code of E1 and it refers to a slow drain. Attached youtube video link is for a whirlpool washing machine and might help. If not repost with the make and model of your washer.

Maytag 2000 series error codes

I have a Maytag Maxima frontload washer that was getting these two error codes. I found in my case it was due to the tub not draining water as quickly expected. On my model there were two screws at the bottom of the front panel (one on each side towards the floor) Once these screws were removed and my husband tilted the washer up I was able to get my hand behind the panel and unscrew the filter cap that is located towards the middle at the bottom. It is a large plastic circle that you unscrew. With your hand remove any gunk or objects blocking the filter (usually filled with gunk) screw the filter cap back in, screw the front panel screws in and try to run another load. I have had to do this twice so far. You would think if the filter needs to be cleaned out every year or so they would make it more easily accessible.

Maytag front load washer mod mhwe251yg00 cde e1-f6

Serial communication error you have two computers one up top the CCU and one down below the MCU it's saying the two are not talking to each other the tech sheet has you go thru about 20 steps to basically come to the same conclusion it's either one or the other which I could help more but I run into the same problem in the field. Most times it's a failed CCU

Hello My Maytag black front loader washer is displaying an error code of F02. Do you know a fix for this error code? Thank you

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
