Maytag MAH2400AW Error code E3
Posted 26 January 2011 - 09:21 PM
Looking online (this seems to be a common problem with this crappy unit), some people seem to suggest that it's a control panel (??) problem while others say it's a motor problem. Some suggest that I can fix it by checking that the "wires are all connected." Still others say to unplug the unit and let it sit to reset itself (which seems silly, but I'm trying that now). Can anyone help me figure out how to better diagnose the problem and, once I do so, how difficult/costly it will be to fix?? Thanks so much in advance. As I said, this is our second unit of this model (drum on the first one gave out), but we don't have the clanging problem that we had with the last one. I'm debating whether to just get something entirely different and to avoid all the current (and future!!) repair costs. Thanks again!

Is the MOTOR corroded/rusty? If so, inspect the rear tub pulley area for evidence of water leaking from the tub bearing and dripping down onto the motor and everywhere else under the tub (reddish-brown stains).
This would indicate a failed REAR BEARING ASSY (leaking/binding/seizing) and/or failed MOTOR.
Was the washer noisy (roaring) during the spin cycle prior to malfunctioning?
(if yes--this is yet more evidence of failed bearings).
The motor is the most common culprit here. Check all the wire connections, undo/redo. If problem persists, replace the motor==> http://www.repaircli...or-drum/1067867
Another tip from Master john:
The DETERGENT DISPENSER BOX will need to be sealed with silicone--the top cover of the DD BOX is removeable. Apply a bead of silicone to the "channel" that the top lid snaps onto.
