Maytag Front Load Washer Model# MAH22400AWW could use a service manual if available. All i know is that there is a '3E' error code, not sure what that is? Thanks,

<<<'3E' error code, not sure what that is>>>
In most cases---a failed MAIN BOARD.
Doesn't hurt to verify that the HALL SENSOR and MOTOR are okay---before ordering new MAIN BOARD
L-O-N-G cycle times
Suds error message
Slow spin speeds
Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)
And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.
The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:
HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load
HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon
HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon
Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.
Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Well, I guess i'm not paying attention to your advice. I ordered a new board without checking the motor or hall sensor ( I have no idea what a hall sensor is? any explination would be appriciated), i put the new contol board in and it will fill, drain but will not spin or the drum will not turn at all. I can turn it manually, belt is hooked up. So in stead of looking at this post i ordered a new motor and door latch thinking it had to be one of the two, never thinking to investigate a hall sensor. How would i test the motor and hall sensor? Thanks.

Thanks for the update, Alex.
Interestingly, the 3E failures in the 2400's apparently has the same cause and cure (replacing the motor) as in the 6700, 8700, and 9700 models:
