I have a Maytag Maxima steam x front load washer. I have had to call a repair tech once and it cost $200. In mid cycle it throws e01 and f08 codes, the door will not unlock and there is no power. It just did it again a week after repair. Here is my tip. I kept unplugging the power cord and plugging it back in over and over for about 15 minutes, continuously. It finally unlocked and reset itself. I wish I had tried this to begin with. Just don't give up, keep messing with it until it catches.

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 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?

I copied this answer from a website called fixya.com. 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.

My Maytag Neptune washer is throwing an error code d4. Help?
By Teri from Elyria, OH
Your manual should explain all the error codes. I really got a scare the first time I got an error code on my brand new sewing machine. I looked it up and found out my bottom thread was tangled. I hope yours is that simple. Mine turned out to be Code Red Operator Silliness. Hope yours is too.
I am getting the code 5D on my top load washing machine model # mvw8450wq1.
Here is the customer service line for Maytag
I have a Maytag Neptune washer. I was washing a small load when the unit stopped with a code ND. There is dirty water in drum. It won't spin or drain.
The User Guide for my Neptune washer suggests checking for a kinked drain hose or a plugged stand pipe if you get error code ND. If you still have problems you could call their customer service line at 1-888-462-9824.
I have a Maytag Maxima MHW6000XW and it is giving a code of F06 and E02. What does this mean?
My washer stopped and is blinking F1. It is full of water; what does this mean?
By Susan from Suffield, CT
I found a link which said to press pause/cancel and then restart. If it doesn't work call for service. The link also said that is is a common problem and is the reason for a number of lawsuits.
Here is the link:
My 3 yr old Maytag HE front load washer displayed an "F" code. i have followed the instructions manual to troubleshoot the problem, like Pause/Off to cancel the cycle. The problem still exists and the door will not open. I have since pulled the plug. Has anyone else had this problem before? My Maytag model # is MFW9800TQ. I would appreciate any feedback.

My front load Kenmore did that a couple of times and I had to flip the breaker (couldn't reach the plug) to get it to stop. It hasn't done it in a couple of years,,,never did discover the problem but it stopped. Maybe yours will too.
The user manual for my Maytag Neptune washer does n't have an F code. I would call Maytag at 1-888-462-9824. They will give you the name of an authorized service company to contact or maybe assist you with the reason for the F code..
Thank ya'll for your feedback.
foxrun41 - my Maytag epic's manual page 22 on the troubleshooting did talk about an 'f' code.
glenn's mom - I did flip the breaker as you suggested - but nothin' happens. door still cannot open the door.
since we have bot a 4 yr-extended protection plan from LOWES. I have called for service since Sunday. the technician that was assigned to my district no longer do servicing. now lowes' service plan-people is looking for another technician for my case. I was told that I have to give them a 24-hr time frame to get someone.
meantime, I am hand washing all the bare necessities (2 school going active boys) - not complaining of that. but it is a full load of towels that are still in the washer that i cannot get out ;(
Thanks for letting me vent;)
The service guy just left. my maytag washer is all better now;). The culprit was a Lucky Bean! My 12 year old son's Lucky BEAN. thought I check all pockets. the service guy found the bean in the bottom drain pipe after removing the bottom panel of the washer. 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.
I have replaced the hoses cold and hot, checked inlet valves, cleaned out drain, and cleaned out inside drain hose. I cleared the inside filter and checked the valve inlet hose for holes. The washer still throws error, 25 minutes into the cycle and we have to drain it. What else could it be?
I have a Maytag Bravo MVWX700XW1 washer. What does error code F7 E1 mean and how do I repair it? Thank you.
From the Maytag help website:
F7 E1 Code in display:
This code indicates a motor speed sensing error, the motor can not achieve the correct speed for the cycle selection.
Have the shipping bolts been removed?
This error code indicates that the motor is having difficulty turning.
All four (4) shipping bolts and the plastic spacers must be removed from the rear of the washer before you operate it. Each unit is shipped from the factory with four bolts, which are designed to secure the washer during shipping. Failure to remove all of the shipping bolts, and the four plastic spacers that are with them, can result in noise, vibration or error codes. See your Installation Instructions for details on how to remove the shipping bolts.

In addition to Judy's response where she found the information from: producthelp.maytag.com/
Another website Sears Expert says, to unplug and replug in the power cord.
If the problem still, do you still have warranty for someone to come out and check your washing machine.
If it is still under warranty, I would caution you against doing anything you do yourself could void your warranty. In the paperwork they gave you with your washer their should be a service center number, if you call that I am sure they can direct you on how to proceed. Good Luck.
My Maytag washer, unknown model number, it is unreadable is showing code Du and then F. It won't unlock. Anybody know what this means?
I have a Maytag Neptune Washer MAH5500BWW. The service cycle displays code PA and h. What are these codes? The washer won't start, the display board works, and it runs a service cycle.
One site stated that the code is indicating the speed of the drum, so it is not an actual error code
THis here might be useful because it is the actual manual for this machine, and it states that the codes are found in Section 5: www.manualowl.com/
Fixya.com has a forum and they also give repair advice.
I am in need of some assistance that the kind of folks at Maytag are either unable or unwilling to perform. My washer, three years old, is giving me an error code of 'f6 e1' followed by three rapid beeps. It's part of the 2000 series (the one with only bad reviews on Amazon), model #MHWE201YW00.
I have already swapped out the machine control board at the advice of a local serviceman, and before I light more money on fire I figured the wise sages of the internet could render better assistance than I've received thus far.
Thanks for solving my first world problem.
I finally found your error codes. When an f# E# appear on your display, your dryer is in need of immediate service. They recommend calling a service rep to come and service your dryer. I would suggest calling Sears because they are the authorized dealer for Maytag.
According to the error code an F01 is the control panel. This didn't need replacing. The person who told you to replace this mistook the E01 for an F01 error code.

The door is not locking on our 1 year old front load Maytag Maxima XL MODEL NHW7000AG2. It is showing error code F0S followed by E02. Anything I can do without a service call? It is still under warranty.

I've checked the supply hoses, I've looked for hose kinks, I've even replaced the inlet valve. Short of calling a repair tech, what else could be the issue?

I have a Maytag Bravo 400 quiet series washer. I am getting the code "DL" and it won't start.
By Dolly D from TX
You can find the code description in your product manual or on the Maytag website.
The door lock light is blinking on my front load Maytag Maxima. This is all it will do. This happened when I forgot to turn the water on. First it had a code blinking that I looked up and it was for the water, so I turned it on and now it is making a humming noise and the door is locked and that is all it will do. The only way to stop it is to unplug it. Does any one know how to fix this problem? I have only had this washer for about a month.
By Jim S
Suggest you call the company who sold you the machine or the manufacturer for help.
It looks like my front loading Maytag will not go into the wash cycle and displays an error code F30. I have been unable to locate its meaning. Anyone know?
From what I have seen on the net, it sounds as though your machine is having a dispenser issue. It could be that the dispenser motor is not working properly. You might try researching how to fix that. Hope this helps.
I had the same thing on my Kenmore and my book said unbalance but after several attempts of balance, cleaning, on and on I called the company out to fix it and the belt was loose and needed to be replaced. I also got it again and cleaned all the dispensers, inside the drum, checked under the rubber that goes around the drum found a couple lonely socks, no idea why and not ever again did it show up. Still a mystery.
My Maytag Neptune washer is flashing an error code that looks like an upside down "F" and an "E". It won't run. Any help?
