Question about Maytag Neptune Washer

Open Question

Maytag ensignia washer keeps stopping. All the lights flash as it quits. I can push to restart and it will run for 15 seconds and stop again. I will never get this load finished. Any ideas what the problem might be?

SOURCE: nf pops up on the screen & the washer stops

The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: MAH 2400 AWW flashing error code "dc"

Hi Pepsi,
"dc" means that the control board is trying to ramp up (that is, send a signal to the motor controller), but has encountered an unbalanced load and so shuts down. Specifically, "dc" means "distribute clothes".

I took this opportunity to upload a Tech and Troubleshooting manual for you. Here is the link for it. Read it carefully. You will be required to perform a "board output" test after placing the machine in "Service Mode".

I gotta tell ya, though. Based on my history with these, I highly suspect that the machine control board has failed. Let me know what you find, OK?

(And don't forget to rate this solution as "FixYA!", deal?

SOURCE: At the middle of my load there was stop with code symbol E3

E3 is that the machine can't see that the motor is spinning. Could either be a loose connector at the motor or a loose hall-effect sensor. this might be a fairly easy fix for a repair tech,

SOURCE: a maytag mah3000waa front load washer when it is

The service manual says do this:

Runs For Five Seconds Then Shuts OFF:

Suspect a communication problem between
motor, the motor control board and the machine control board. Check the motor and
motor control system by removing the JP4
connector on the motor control board. Set
the timer dial into the delay cycle and then
press the push to start switch. If the motor
operates and the washer goes into a 50 rpm
tumble, then the source of the problem is the
RD 30 wire leading from the motor control to
the P4(2)/RD30 connector on the machine
control board. When the machine control
tells the motor control to run the motor, it
monitors the red wire to determine if the motor is actually running. If the board does not see a return signal, the washer will shut down.
If RD30 wire is making contact, then suspect
possible problems with timer input circuits

Tumbles Only:
When the door lock mechanism is in the
"locked" mode, the wax motor has extended,
forcing the latch axle to engage the door lock
enable switch. This ensures the door is fully
locked and the switch can then complete the
signal back to the machine control board indicating
the door is locked. Check connector
P3(7)/YL 36 wire to verify if the terminal is
making good contact to the board terminal.
Check the door lock enable switch for continuity
when the button is depressed. Replace
door lock mechanism if necessary.

IT appears to be inputs and not the control board.

If you need more assistance just repsond here and I will reapond accordingly.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My maytag dishwasher will run for a short then stop running, I'll push on the door the machine will run again then will stop again

your door is not staying latched.. imagine if it did stay running and the door came completely open, what a mess that would be. so there are safety switches that help stop the washing if the door opens. not too sure how to fix your exact washer.. but the problem is the door not staying closed. maybe you can jamm the door shut while it is running? its not the best answer, but probably the most free way to fix it

Maytag washer stopped working at the rinse cycle

do you have the machine set for cold water rinse? if so, the solenoid that allows the cold water to come into the machine may be malfunctioning. try to see if it will fill in the rinse cycle with hot water? if so, you need to change the water inlet valve.

The water continues to run into my Maytag Ensignia after the cycle is complete

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.
