Hall Sensor fault)
If you have replaced the motor it's the board that's not sensing the tachometer in the motor which is the Hall sensor, check the plugs between the motor and the main control board and motor control board, make sure there not loose or corroded, it's not sensing that the motor is moving, let me know if you find any loose plugs or wires already corrosion on any of them, HQ contact cleaner works good for cleaning these plugs try that and see if that straightens away your problem, let me know
Initially, I checked the wiring connections, and all were tight. There is no build-up, dirt, nor moisture on any part; I could have thought I was working on a 1 week old machine. The motor turns the belt, flywheel, and drum without problem. More than one forum for a "3e" code referenced the motor, with a few mentioning the internal hall for my year model was at fault. After replacing the motor, I received the code on the very first code. Those same forums talked about the door lock "being the culprit about 40% of the time"; needless to say, I replaced the door lock. At this point, I still received the code, and pulled the drain pump out to clean it, and check for a wobble, or grains stopping the impeller. When all the parts were hooked back up, the code popped up on the display, "3e". Every time I start any wash cycle, the code pops up at minute 44 of 56, minute 32 of 45, minute 10 of 33, minute 8 on spin only, and minute 1 on any cycle after I nurture it past the intial code throw.
I went to forums over the last 2-1/2 hours prior to clicking on the "Maytag: Just Answer" link on a search engine page. I cannot decide whether I have to replace the "water pressure sensor", "drain pump assembly", or "control panel".
I'm sorry they wont let us copy the manual or send it , my guess is the control is bad
, you can try replacing the pressure sensor though , thats what I would do next.
Since that was the cheapest of the three possibilities, that was already in "the cart" for purchase in the other web browser tab. Without a tech chart, I don't even diagnose vehicles' electrical systems where I work at. Is there not a common reference chart showing probabilities of parts for this code (3E).
Display "E3"Evaluate wireharness for loose orunhookedconnections.Replace machinecontrol board ifdeemed necessary.
that is all it say in the tech sheet, this is the machine control board. this is expensive however, you replaced the other possibility's so thats all thats left.
