I have a Maytag Epic washer, purchased in 2008. I push the power button and it turns on, but when I push the start button it just goes off. I replaced the control panel, the door latch and the elec.control unit. It still did the same thing, so I finally called a repairman, who said it was the elec. control, bad part. Do you thinks he's right?
Answer Hello Cindy,
First verify all connections by unplugging and re-connecting each of the connections to the main control, the motor control, and the motor, one at a time. You then should try to put the unit into the diagnostic test as described in the tech sheet. This should be located in a re-sealable plastic bag behind the bottom front panel. While it is possible for the CCU W10525358 to be the issue, these units are notorious for poor electrical connections.
I start the washer and it it start the water and then it stops. The first time it happened the washer stopped at 8 mins and just did nothing. The door stayed locked. Unplugged the machine and pulled the manual door lock release. It shows no error codes. What do I need to fix it?
If the unit stops at around 8 minutes then you will want to check the drain pump to ensure that it is not clogged which would cause a time out issue if the pressure switch does not sense the water leaving the unit. Also check the door lock to make sure that it is good. It could be that the door lock is faulty and will not allow the unit to go into the final spin.
All the lights flash on the machine and it stops and it flashes F28 and the door won't open either. Thanks
Answer Hello Brian,
The fault code listed for that model indicates the communication between the Central Control Unit (CCU) and the Motor Control Unit (MCU) cannot be sent correctly. 1. Unplug washer or disconnect power. 2. Check wire harness connections to the MCU, the motor, and
Central Control Unit (CCU). - Check connections of the CCU board within the housing. - Make sure all grounding switches are engaged. 3. Check the drive system for any worn or failed components. 4. Plug in washer or reconnect power. 5. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle. 6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor. 7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
8. Check that the serial harness at the MCU is not mounted upside down. The wires should be to the left when facing the MCU connectors.
my HE2t washing machine keeps flashing F01? do I need to replace the control panel?
The F01 error code is an indication of a EEPROM error which is a communication error between the CCU and EEPROM on the CCU. A power glitch may cause this issue. Unplug the washer for 2 minutes. Plug back in and try to run a cycle and if the same error code comes up then you will need to replace the Control board W10163007.
I get the F-25 error message after a load has run for about 30 minutes. When I run the diagnostic mode (empty) it runs through all steps no problem. I've already checked all of the connections, replaced the MCU and CCU. The motor reads 6 ohms between 1-2, 2-3 and 1-3 and 185 between 4-5. When the load is in, it runs through the wash, empties, starts slow spin, then fast spin and then gives me the code in the rinse section. Both hot and cold water go into machine fine. Don't know what to try next.
Answer Hello John,
I'm concerned about the tach circuit, (Terminals 4 and 5). You stated that you got a reading of 185O. This reading should have been 115O. This is close enough to allow the unit to go through most of the cycle before it actually shuts down with the fault code. The tech sheet states:
1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and the power cord are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check drive motor tachometer resistance. It should be approx. 115 O.
4. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
7. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.
Let us know if you require further assistance.
My washer turns on, starts a cycle, after the door locks 2nd time error code f33 comes up. What do I replace?
Answer Hello B,
This is directly from the service manual:
If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed. OR If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash. Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
It sounds like you either have debris in the pump, a bad connection between the pump and main control at the top of the unit or a bad pump.
