Joe, ds is a door lock malfunction. The door lock latch shows closed and the door switch shows open. Try this, unplug the unit for 60 seconds and see if the error comes back. If it does, with the power on press and hold the chime and xtra rinse pads together for 3 seconds. This will put it into the service mode. Once in the service mode press the chime button again to unlock and the temperature pad to lock. See if they operate. If still no luck you are going to have to do some tests on the door lock switch to see whats happening. You do have a 2 year warranty on these parts and being that it is only a year old, tell them to throw in the labor....Catriver...post back.

Pf error code MAH2400AWw

In my case it was a old connector harness located on your motor. Leads comming from tacho ( 2 red wires) were not passing thru harness. I rilpped them off and made solid but crimps.

Hope this helps a little.

Drum does not spin centered, it is rubbing the seal

This isn't good. it's normally related to the tub bearing or spider brace on the inner/ outer tub. Both parts tend to be very costly. If its under a year old you will be covered in warranty.. if not it maybe time for a new machine. I have seen this on washer's as little as 14 month old. I'm not a front load washer fan because of this problem.

What is the error code dS for Neptune Maytag Washer MAH8700AWW?

Please advise me on any recalls and technical information involving error code 3E during a wash load, which appears related to be a faulty control panel. My machine is always shutting down each time it reaches the rinse cycle. Numerous consumers have been complaining about this same model at consumeraffairs.com. Replacement of the control panel is expensive at an average cost of 298 dollars and appears to be the corrective action for other consumers with error code 3E. Over current is not being detected at the motor. I'm disappointed with the quality of this washer considering I purchased it in 2005 for over 1,000 dollars. This problem has forced me to use a local laundry mat to wash my clothes. This error code is not listed in the User manual.

I keep getting an error code ... F-20. Please

Hi,

F20 indicates a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) in your washer. To resolve this issue check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.


Thank you!!

Maytag mah8700A

ds - means that the door is open while the washer is running sometimes this can be easily fixed by opening the door then closing it and pushing it pretty firm to make sure it latches.

If that doesnt work there very well could be a problem that would need to be fixed by a service repairman you can call Maytag USA Customer Service @ (800)688-9900

hope that helps.
