Error Codes For Maytag Appliances 

Fault Codes Maytag® EPIC z™ Appliance

Fault codes usually indicate a specific problem. However, in many cases, a faulty timer (ERC or Electronic Range Control) can result in an incorrect fault code. Our team of technicians is experienced in repairing most timers and we know how to get to the bottom of any Maytag issue. Review the Maytag fault codes below to stay on top of any issue that may arise.

F0 – Stuck function key

  • Replace the touchpad or if touchpad is part of the clock, replace the clock (ERC).

F1 – Touchpad or clock (ERC) defect

  • Replace the touchpad or clock (ERC). The touchpad is a more common problem. Refer to F1 test at the top of this page for further information.

F2 – Oven temperature too hot

  • Replace the relay board, if present, or the oven temperature sensor (RTD). Check sensor harness.

F3 or F4 – Shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD)

  • Check the sensor harness and harness connection between the oven sensor and oven control. Replace the oven temperature sensor (RTD) if the wiring is ok.

F5 – Watchdog and hardware conflict

  • Replace the clock (ERC).

F7 – Function key stuck or shorted

  • Replace the touchpad or if the touchpad is part of the clock, replace the clock (ERC).

F8 – Analog / Digital problem

  • Replace the clock (ERC).

F9 – Door latch

  • Check the door latch components.

Maytag® EPIC z™ Neptune, Atlantis, Dryer Fault Codes

PFPower Failure
Power failure while the dryer was in cycle. Press the Stop button to clear the display. If you experience common power failures on your dryer be sure to check the electrical outlet cord.
Part to replace – Outlet Cord

 F01Main Electronic Control Board Fail
Remove the dryer from power for 10 minutes. Apply power back to the dryer and if the code returns you need to replace the main electronic control board.
Part to replace – Main Electronic Control Board

F02Keypad or User Interface Fail
A button on the keypad may be stuck on one of the user interface controls. If the button cannot be unstuck then replace the user interface control assembly.
Part to replace – User Interface Control Assembly

F22Exhaust Thermistor (Temp Sensor) Fail
Remove power from the dryer. Use a multi-meter and check the resistance of the thermistor (0,000 ohms). If the thermistor is bad then replace it.
Part to replace – Thermistor (Temp Sensor)

F23Exhaust Thermistor (Temp Sensor) Fail
Remove power from the dryer. Use a multi-meter and check the resistance of the thermistor (0,000 ohms). If the thermistor is bad then replace it.
Part to replace – Thermistor (Temp Sensor)

F26Drive Motor Fail
Remove power from the dryer. Check wiring connections between the main electronic control board and the drive motor. If the wiring connections are not damaged and connected then replace the drive motor.
Part to replace – Drive Motor

F28Moisture Sensor Fail
Remove power from the dryer. Check the wiring harness on the moisture sensor visually and with a multi-meter. If the wiring connections are okay then replace the moisture sensor.
Part to replace – Moisture Sensor

 F29Moisture Sensor Fail
Remove power from the dryer. Check the wiring harness on the moisture sensor visually and with a multi-meter. If the wiring connections are okay then replace the moisture sensor.
Part to replace – Moisture Sensor

Maytag® EPIC z™ Neptune, Atlantis, Washer Fault Codes

Maytag-Washer-Error-Codes

nd – The water level fails to drop below the Low Water level reset within 15 minutes, before a spin begins. 

LODoor failed to unlock after 3 attempts. 

nF – Continuous fill of 12minutes. Total fill of 14minutes. 

FL – Door failed to lock after3 attempts. 

LE Water sensor level fault. 8
OE A fault is detected in the water level sensor. Data (frequency) shows the water level is at or above the overflow level.

E-E2 – Detected a key pressed more than 30seconds, the key will be assumed to be stuck. 

dc – Never exceeded 400rpm due to an unbalanced load. 

od The door has not been opened after two complete wash cycles. Door switch was not seen open since the last two final spins. 

dL – Open door lock switch with motor running. 

dS – Door switch is read as open and the door locked switch is read as locked. 

bE – Motor tach signal exists without motor running. 

tEAbnormal high/low temp or ohm resistance seen. 

E3 – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual check shows motor is not moving. (Locked, Hall Sensor fault) 
Sr – System Relay failure. 

HrHeater Relay failure. 

Fridge Error Codes
