Is there supposed to be water showing in or around the motor area in the creme color or the yellow area I can see water in it when I tilt it to one side or the other, you can see water bubble in it, thanks any answer would be helpful .
Answer Tommy, yes there is always water in that area of the drain pump. Under normal conditions, it is the lowest area of the drain system and retains a small amount of water. Unless you remove the pump and drain it. Everything sounds normal at this point. Thanks!

My kenmore he2 front loader fails to drain & spin, suspecting drain & pump is the issue. How would I test it with a ohm meter or volt meter. Where do I place the probe to test?
To test the pump you would do a resistance check. If unplug the pump and put a lead on each terminal the resistance value should be approximately 12.3 ohms. This is normal and abnormal is infinite or open. If you find this reading then the pump motor is bad. Also check to make sure that the pump is not clogged. If the pump is clogged or the tube coming off the bottom of the unit is clogged then you would want to clear the clog and recheck to see if the unit pumps out water.
I am getting a code f21 and also f33. The washer makes a humming sound. Any ideas as to what to look for?
Answer Hello Luis,
The F-21 fault code is a CCU / TOUCHPAD / LED ASSEMBLY ERROR
This error occurs if the touchpad/LED assembly is not able to transmit/receive data to/from
the central control unit (CCU).
Possible Causes / Procedure
1. Check the touchpad/LED assembly by selecting different cycles and changing the
modifiers and options available to confirm the touchpad/LED is responding.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the touchpad/LED assembly and Central Control
Since the F-33 is not a valid fault code, the failure cause leans toward the CCU W10205977. (This is for model number MHWZ600TW00. There could be a different part number for the MHWZ600TW01 and MHWZ600TW02).
We keep getting error codes e-01 and f-09. According to maytag the drain times are too long. It won't drain all the water out and then codes. We have made sure drain hose is okay and no blockages. Is it the pump?
You will want to check the hose at the bottom of the tub all the way out to the drain, including checking the drain pump for clogs. If there are no clogs then you would want to also check the impeller for being broken. If broken or not spinning properly then you would replace the drain pump W10130913.
