There are usually three to four suspension points inside a machine that suspends the basket in the case , these are most usually rubber or springs a good look at them with a strong light and handmirror will show you usualy the cause of one of them making noise , most times its from a latent leak in the drum seal and water/suds are getting to it making it squeak

I have the same washer. Over the past weeks I have had all sorts of error codes. In no particular order, I've had: CA, CI, ld, ob, and SL. Had a repair guy come out and put in a new pump. Didn't solve the problem. Had a more experienced guy come out from the same company. We basically tore the thing apart. We found an underwire from one of my wife's bras (she wondered where it went) along with a bunch of lint in the recirculation tube. You can see the outlet of the tube at the top back of the drum. We also found one of her small booty socks inside the tub blocking the drain tube. We fished everything out and it works great again. I have a two foot long cable grabber that we needed to get the sock out of the tub. You'd be amazed at where things can get trapped in these things. So, I spent $230 or so for a pump that I probably didn't need, but the new pump design is vastly superior to the old one so I'm not complaining too much. The company didn't charge me for the repeat visits, which was nice because the senior repair guy was at my house for about four hours at the end of his day. So the more experience guy and I brainstormed about why all the different error codes came on and this is what we came up with.

CA and CI -- These are current fault codes. Either the average draw or and instantaneous draw tripped a set maximum. These were likely caused by the pump trying too hard to pump thru the blockage in the drain line.

ld -- This stands for long drain. The pump must be able to drain the water form the tub within a certain time frame, if not, you will get this error code. Again, likely came from the sock blocking the drain tube. This may have also came on because the washer recirculates the water throught its cycle. With the recycle tube clogged by the underwire and lint, the only place for the water to go was out the drain. With that being clogged as well, the ld code comes on at the beginning of the cycle.

ob -- stands for out of balance. This one confused me a bit, because I was getting an out of balance signal with nothing in the washer. Apparently, with too much water in the tub and the thing sloshing around, an ob signal is very common with the drain clogged.

SL -- is for suds lock. You can get this one if you put too much soap in the thing. It can also come if you use conventional soap instead of high effencicy soap. I only got this one once. This message can also be caused by a faulty pump.

Hope this helps anyone with these problems. I wouldn't have wanted to tackle this one myself, but probably could do it now after helping with the repair last night. I know these machines have a bad reputation, and I wouldn't buy one of these again, but when its working, my wife and I think it does a good job washing our clothes.

On something like this you will need to remove the washer wrap to inspect the suspension springs & base assembly. Please see the link provided for accessing the inside of the washer. Be sure the shipping pins have been removed. The tub should float freely.

SOURCE: maytag bravos washer stops cycle "f" code flashes

This isnt really a solution because Im having the same problem. The repair man that came said that is buildup of soap in the water line. I use my own powder soap, not h/e, and its not desolving and getting built up in the lines. Im not sure what to do to get it to stop doing this. He suggested cutting back on the amount of soap and running hot water through the lines which I have done for the last couple of days but I still have this problem.

Drum or basket rotates 3/4 turn one direction the pauses 10 seconds then rotates 3/4 turn the other direction during wash cycle. Does the same during spin cycle.


This is normal operation for the machine It is doing this to get detergent and water to all of the loaded cloths and also to balance the load for when it is washing and spinning

Wipers stop in middle of windshield when turned off - Century 2002 tried nothing thus far


The control board on the wiper motor has ametal "stop" that got bent.
This usually happens when the wipers are stuck ( frozen from ice?) and turned on.
This can be readjusted bu bending back to original position or replacing the control board

The washer recently began producing a high pitch squeek during the washing cycle, and a louder than normal sound during the spin cycle.


The motor Carriage is not pulling back fast/far enough special poly lube you can use other lube just wont last long or will deteriorate wheels quickly. What you can do is set for spin, hold open lid slightly with one hand pull back on motor slightly. If sound stops you got it. Other wise sounds like mount stem may need replacing if you do also replace spin bearing this is under basket and outer tub on top of transmission.

Recently bot a home with a GE Profile dishwasher -- only about 4 years old -- it does not get anything clean -- before replacing it I was told that it might just need some "line" cleaning -- anyone know...


Hello,

Welcome To FixYa.

Before getting into this too far I have a couple of question`s which will enlighten me in which direction to steer you.

First, the home you purchased...do you know if it was un-occupied for an extended period, thus the dishwasher not running for a while ?

Second, after the unit initially starts and is full of water, do you hear the wash motor spraying water at all.

I`ll watch for your response and try to reply asap.

Thank`s,

macmarkus :)

Noisy during spin cycle


This may be due to a worn belt (squeeks when changing speed), Faulty dampers - (banging about), constant rattling (rear bearing), or a motor on it's last legs (replace motor).
Most faults can be fixed by replacing those listed.
