I have a Maytag washer model # MTW6700TQ1.  Runs through diagnostics fine. Customer says it stops in mid cycle with about 24 min left on the display. Its has one stored error code of F-71 which is not on the tech sheet.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

F 71 is the stored code for Sd or suds.  What kind and how much detergent they are using would be my next thing to check out.

 

If the detergent and amount check out pull the basket and check the shaft for excessive crud build up.

Concur with Brother Thirsty.  Also check for foreign objects at the sump that may float around, allowing for a partial or slow drain that might trick the controller.  Be sure the basket turns freely and engages/disengages properly from drive.

FYI... I had to replaced the drive hub part # 280145 and bearing kit part # W10435302 to solve this problem.  Works fine now!  Turns out that it was stopping mid cycle and giving an OS code too.
