Re: wont work, flashes LR
The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired.

The machine knows what the water level should be at every step of the program, so if its full when it should be empty, is not filling when it should be or is taking too long to fill or empty the program will abort and count down in seconds as you describe.
First - check the drain filter for blockage!! if clear, can you hear the drain pump running on 'drain' program? a chug chug chug noise. If not pump may be jammed or seized - or the drain tube maybe be blocked at the waste connection on the sink, etc. Or maybe the water supply pipes have blocked or got turned off? Possibly the waste pipe may not have been installed correctly and the machine is syphoning empty? ie the end of the waste pipe is lower than the water level in the machine - so it syphons empty like draining petrol from a petrol tank! That would empty the machine when it should be full.
Check all the basics of filling, draining and filter before suspecting anything else.
Your drain pump is obstructed. You need to remove the bottom panel to access the drain pump. The drain pump will be in the front center of the unit. Once accessed you will see a large knob/screw this will need to be turned clockwise (be ready with some towels and bucket) once you have it open, you should be able to clean out the trap. Reverse to reassemble.. Good luck.. Hope this helps... Bill
with what you have described the problem should be in the door lock unit. there is a check switch that gets pressed down and sends a signal to the computer board telling it that it is locked. if the switch isn't working then that signal will not be sent and the washer will just turn and never enter spin. replace the switch and this will clear up the problem
