Question: Washer Stop Working

OK I changed mother board and the controller on the bottom. I cleared all codes with 88 at the end. When I turn it on sometimes I will get a small click after the door locks when the water turns on and it won't run. If you let it sit for 2 minutes it goes to error E1 F6. Now if I unplug it and plug it in it will turn on and start filling then after it is filled it goes to error. Now if I unplug it and then plug it back in with about 15 seconds in between the water is discharged and then it goes to error. Please help.

Question: Maytag Error Codes FO2 and SUD

I have a Maytag front load washer, model MFW9600SQO. The F02 and SUD codes show up during washing even though I have done the following: Replaced water pump and strainer. Cleaned out behind the door gasket, cleaned out ball on top of drain at the bottom of the washer. Inspected hose from pump to drain pipe for blockage and found none. Identified that water is flowing into and out of washer. I have unplugged the washer overnight. I have run machine without soap 3-4 times.

I can get it to run, but get the FO2 and SUD code towards the end of wash cycle. If I press the off button once and start button twice I can get it to continue to run, but this has to be repeated every 3 minutes or so until the was is done. What do I do now?

By William B.

By Lorraine Thibodeau D.12/06/2013

I copied this answer from a website called Hope this helps.
If it's not draining properly and shows this F02 Code there may be a simple solution. Take the bottom front panel off (it has 3 screws.) There will be an off white circular plastic thing there. Resembles the top to a cannister. Twist it off. There will be a good bit of water if it hasn't drained properly. I put a cookie sheet under it to catch most of the water. Once you completely unscrew the top off hopefully your problem will be right there. Unbelievable... we found 2 socks, a glove, a bead, coins and don't ask me but there was a nail in there as well. I was so happy that we didn't need to pay a repair man.

Question: Maytag Neptune Displaying Error Code ND

My Maytag Neptune is 7 yrs old. I am getting a "nd" error and the door is locked. How can I unlock the door? I had a repairman out over a year ago, he told me what he did was make sure the door would not ever get stuck being locked. Well it's locked. Help! My autistic son keeps yelling at the machine, he's 24 but does not cope well. I have got to get this machine door open. No there is no string to pull. I can't think of the exact model number, but it's a Neptune front door, low water consumption. I pray this isn't very physically taxing. I couldn't watch the repairman at the time, so I don't just want to mess with something with the computer panel. Thank you in advance for your prompt response.

Question: Front Load Maytag Displaying "Suds" Code

My front load washer keeps saying "suds". I am not using a lot of soap and it does it all the time. Now I am calling my washer sudsy lol. Can someone help me please?

By Buddie

Most Recent Answer

By Frugal Sunnie [11]07/25/2013

Try running the washer without soap on the hottest setting through a complete wash cycle - it sounds like your machine is trying to tell you that a 'suds lock' situation has happened.

Suds lock happens when soap accumulates in the machine over time and it doesn't take much to cause the condition. Most manufacturers recommend a monthly empty wash on hottest setting to clean the machine.

Also possible is the filter has become soap encrusted, the hot water wash should clear it.

Best thing really, though, is to go to the manufacturer website and use the search feature to find a free download of your model user guide/owner manual.

The codes should be listed in your owner/user manual. If you don't have one you can download it (for free) at the following link; use the search feature box to find the manual for your model machine: ... OpUUfCAXtvB5kw%3D%3D&ddkey=https:OCProductHelpArticleView

You can save the pdf to your computer but I also recommend printing a copy and putting it into a 3-ring binder that you keep by the washing machine. I do this and it saves a lot of questions like 'Mom, how do I...' when my son is visiting, and 'Honey, what the heck is an F02 error code?!' when my husband is 'helping' with the housework, lol!

We live in the UK now and often have house-guests over from the States; they tell me having the manuals handy (I also do the binder thing for other appliances) makes for a much nicer visit. And woohoo, these lovely, welcome guests often wash the linens just before leaving as a 'thank-you for the hospitality':)

I had the same problem, My issue was a small sock that was sucked into the drain tube at the bottom of the washer. The technician removed the bottom panal and drained (a lot) of water from the tubing, then the sock came out, it had been preventing the water from draining out. It didn't seem to be a difficult repair to do on your own, Good Luck

That bean just shut down the whole system due to the washer sensor. Ah well, all's well n good now;)

*the service guy even gave me a bottle of cleaning liquid to clean off the mildew.
