On my Maytag Neptune washer, it will start a wash cycle and wash for a minute then a code E3 will come up. What is wrong
Type of Appliance: Washer
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.I'm really sorry to hear that your washer is having some issues today. E3 is a fairly bad error to get on this washer because it means that the washer thinks the tub is having difficulty turning so the motor is overloading. The first test you want to do is to open the door and spin the tub to make sure the basket is spinning freely. If everything spins freely, you have a problem with the motor or the main control board not reading the motor properly. There is no way to test which part is faulty so it's just a guessing game as to which part you want to replace first, but generally the motor is the part that technicians replace first.All I ask of you is to please rate me with one of the top 3 ratings. If there is anything else I can help you with today just let me know. You can continue asking questions for as long as you like even after you rate me.

If you are done and rate a 1 or 2 star please consider using the "continue conversation" link and telling me what more I can do or what more you would have liked that was within my power so that I possibly give you that information or help me improve my customer satisfaction rating.
