I have an error code E2 on my Maytag washer MAH9700AWW and need to know what I can do about it. I'm somewhat of a service tech so I'm pretty sure I could fix it if I knew what my options were. Thanks

FL Maytag Washer about 2 Years old
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

A key is sensed to be

pressed more than 30

seconds, the key will be

assumed to be stuck

No, there is no key stuck. The motor is trying to turn but the sensor is not reading it. The tech sheet says that this is the problem but I don't know how to solve it. It has something to do with re-aligining the sensor or something like that on the motor. If you aren't familiar with this type of motor, please give me to someone who is. Thank you
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

excuse me but thats what the error code means E2 now they do have a 2E fault code but thats not what you said that you have you said that its a E2

I apologize if I gave you the wrong code. I wasn't quit sure if it was e2 or 2e but I am sure that it is a motor problem and not a stuck key. Thank's for your patience with me.
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago
but whats the code that you are seeing?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Okay...sorry for the confusion...Here are the facts. "E3" appears and this refers to error code "2E" which states Machine control is attempting to drive motor but is not sensing any tack response. Locked hall sensor
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No. I just need someone (who may have had some experience with this problem)to tell me if I need to make an adjustment with the RPS or if I need to replace a part on the motor or the whole motor (34001269).
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

I'm not there either but I have to go back this afternoon. I left it in the test mode this morning and assuming it is still in the test mode. A "0" shows on the panel which means no rotation but I am assuming also that I can open the door or go behind and rotate the motor or drum by hand to see if the sensor is picking up the signal for rotation.
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

ok and while your at it check all the connections and look for any bent terminals

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Okay, William. Thanks for hanging in there. If I find any bent terminals and it solves the problem I will be very happy to pay you and even give you a bonus. I know I didn't help you much but if this is all you can give me, I kinda feel like I know more about this problem that you do ( I do have the advantage of seeing it ) I was just hoping someone there could explain what is happening. I am leaving this window open and will be back in and hour or so, so if you can come up with anything else, please do so. I'll pay you when I get back if that is okay. Thank you.
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 8 years ago

There is no adjustment for this error, if it continues replacing the motor is the repair..
