What does code F51 mean? The washer won't run. It's been fine for several years. It is a model MVWD75OW from 2005.
I have an error code 11 on my Maytag Performance Series 3000 front load washer.
What are possible causes and solutions?
By Jon C from Zanesville, OH
Well, the manual that came with the washer should have the explanation of the codes. If you don't have the manual you could either e-mail Maytag at customer service or look in the phone book for the phone number of your local Maytag dealer.
Made a mistake on the phone number. Correct phone number for Maytag is 1-800-344-1274
I have a Maytag washing machine that does not start and displays "lid" as fault. I have to unplug the washing machine, and plug in again, then it starts the wash cycle. If this a lid switch that is bad?
From applianceassistant.com lid Error Lid Opened (Stored Error Code F81)
Is the lid open?
Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10 minutes, water in the washtub will drain.
I think you may have a bad lid switch, or a sensor problem. The sensor may "think" the switch is bad, but it isn't.

I have a Maytag 9000 series front load washer. I had an error code "f28". The repair man came out said it was the motor control panel so they replaced it.
The f28 error code deals with the main central control board and the motor control board. The two boards are not communicating correctly with each other. In this case it will be necessary to call an authorized Maytag repair shop to have the washer serviced. It will be difficult to determine which of the two boards are bad.
I have a Maytag front load washer. Once I set the cycle the estimated time remaining shows the proper time, like "45 minutes". Once I start the machine, it starts to fill with water (I'm not sure if it fills completely), then it often will start to wash a bit.
The FH error codes on the washing machine are a water issue dealing with the hot and cold water. Here is what you can do to check your machine.
Check your household faucets to ensure that both the hot and cold faucets are turned on. Both the faucets needed to be opened completely so the machine can fill.
If you have selected cold water the machine is designed to use both the hot and cold water to keep the water temperature optimal.
Both the hot and cold water must be attached and turned on for the machine's water supply. The machine won't operate correctly if only the cold or the hot water is turned on.
Check the screens on your water hose to make sure they are clean and nothing is affecting the flow of water to your machine.
I have a Maytag Maxima front loader. We kept on getting error codes for plugged drain so we cleaned out the hoses and took off the front panel and cleaned the lower filter which was pretty nasty. There were kids' socks, toys, and almost $5 in change, but we put it back together and tried to start a load and all it does is beep a few times in a metallic tone then shuts down. I believe it threw out a code of INT at one point since we put it back together.

The cycle was paused or canceled. The washer may take 20 to 30 minutes to stop spinning and drain, and will display this error code during that time.
To remove the code, press pause or cancel button twice and the power button once.
If the code is still displayed, unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.

What does error code F02 mean? The washer stops during spin cycle. It s a model MAH 5500 BWW, SN C3911327JC. Could possibly code Lr be the issue?
It means its not draining well. Remove the bottom panel and you may find some socks or other small items causing the problem
My Maytag front load washer is making a noise and flashing codes El and FL what can I do to fix it? I can't wait till Wednesday for repair man. Please help!
There isn't an error code EI and FL. I think the error codes on your machine are a E1 and a F1. These error codes are for your main controller board. This part will need to be changed to restore power to your machine.
The washer was not used for 2 months. Now every load gives ol code. It is not overloaded. I even get the code if my washer is empty.
You do not provide to washer manufacturer make so not sure of the OL code. May mean something is stuck in the works somewhere, a drag on the drive, or the control board is failing. Need a technician to take the washer apart to find the problem.
How do I clear the long drain code?
It would help if you would provide the make, model, year, etc., of the washer as not all codes are the same.
How do I clear the "long drain" error code?
Would help if you provide the washer brand and the code number as codes may be different by the manufacturer.
What does F12 on a Maytag 3000 washer mean?
By G from C
The Maytag product manual has all codes and their meanings. You can also contact Maytag directly by phone or email from this site:
My Maytag Epic washing machine keeps flashing F 02 error code even after I cleaned out the filter. What is the next thing I can check for this?
It is a code that means it's not draining well. You could have a clog or too many suds.

My washer started and then stopped, flashing the error code FL. What is the problem?
By Joey J.
The name, model, etc., of your washer would help here as most manufacturers use their own codes for problems. However, I tried an online search for the code and found that Kenmore washers use the FL code for problems with the water pump. I copied an answer on the "shopyourway" website here:
The water in the tub can be drained by lowering the drain hose to the ground over a small catch pan. The 1st image below shows the path of the water in drain. If the drain hose is lowered then gravity should allow the water to drain out. If you lower the hose and no water comes out then there is a blockage in the hose or the pump.
If no water drained out when the drain hose was lowered then I recommend first removing the hoses connected to the pump and check for obstructions.
To access the pump you will need to lay the washer on its back and remove the bottom access panel. See the 3rd image to access and change the drain pump.
Of course the flood switch could be bad or suds in the machine can cause a false FL code but check the pump and the hoses first. Of course, you may require a service tech to diagnose and correct the problem for you.

If it isn't overloaded, there may be something stuck between the wash basket and the rest of the machine. Removing the basket may dislodge it.
In case it's just an overload, try washing fewer clothes at one time. Clothes should reach no higher than the top of the basket before they get wet and not have to be pressed down.
I have Maytag dishwasher model MDW700EDWG. It is showing error code F7 when I power on the machine. Can you help me to provide more information on this code?
The product manual that came with your machine will have the code meaning. Also, the Maytag website can help with your problem.
What is an A7 error code? My Maytag front loader has this error will not spin after the wash cycle.
By Joel K.
You can check your product manual for the code, contact the store where purchased or contact the manufacturer's customer service.
What does it mean when it's flashing F13?
Every manufacturer has different codes so without knowing your washer's manufacturer, no answer. You can get this information in your product booklet or online at the manufacturer's website.
There is a code on my washer "LF" and it will not go through the wash cycle.
I could mean that the washer is not getting enough water because the water hose has a blockage. Try replacing both of the water hoses. If you have the rubber hoses they should be replaced every 5 years as they tend to dry out and could burst.
