Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer

Open Question

I own a Maytag Neptune 8700 Washing Machine. It regularly registers a E3 error during. After reviewing service bulleting # TDL-0078A-B from June 2006, I thought that it could be the wires since it usually cuts out during the high vibration spin cycle. Unfortunately, I could not figure out how to remove the terminal block to fully check the leads per the service bulletin (Is it by the screw pictured below - I was unable to loosen it with various Philips head screw drivers?). I was able to push in the wires slightly and this temporarily relieved the problem but the connection loosened after another 7 loads. Any suggestions on how I should proceed?

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune stops during rinse cycles

I think the cold side of your water valve is stopped up at the screen. Just take your hose off at the machine and get the crud off the screen in the valve. It only does it in rinse because you have cold rinses. When warm water comes in, it will fill just fine because the hot water is not blocked

SOURCE: Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

purely based on the vague information you have given, this could sound like the drum bearings and the fact that it has been neglected for so long has resulted in serious damage to your machine, note to all, never continue to use machines making noises, it can only get worse and do mare costly damage, after all the problem could have been a very inexpensive fix problems on this and any other site, to be fixed by messages (without actually seeing the machine) can only be fixed - or advice can only be given based on the details that are given if you say my machine just stopped then you will not get an answer will you? engineers can help sort out lots of problems without seeing the machine if we are given the right DETAILED information, no matter how silly it sounds, so before you shout and complain at others, have a thought about what you are going to write sorry its bad news but i hope i have helped

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Series MAH5500BW loud noise during spin cycle.

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

Maytag laundry neptune front loader washer MAH6700AWW. It is showing a E3 code error. what can we do for that


Hi, the E3 error means that the control board is detecting current going to the motor, but the motor won't turn properly. If the error code comes up all the time as soon as you press the power on button, then it means your control board is bad and reading incorrectly. If it only happens during a cycle, then you need a new motor unfortunately.

E3 keeps poping up


Hello leggettelect,

The e3 code has to do with the Hall Sensor. This is a sensor that looks at motor RPM. There have been some issues with the wire harness or the harness connectors being loose. You can also get the code if the sensor itself is loose and cant read the motor RPM. Here is a link to a tech bulletin from Maytag explaining it in more detail and has some pictures so you can see what to check. Hope this will fix your problem.

Maytag may8700aww washer with e3 code


This worked for me for the E3 error code: Turn the machine off and then on. Enter the Service Mode by pressing the Chime and Exrta Rinse keys for 3 sec. Display the Diagnostic Codes by pressing the Rinse and Spin key. Clear the codes by pressing the Delay and Chime keys for 3 sec. Turn the machine off, unplug and plug in the power cord. This dumps the memory. Evidently, if it gets full, it causes problems with the programming and messes up the cycles.
