What does error code E3 mean on a Maytag Neptune front load

Resolved Question:

What does error code E3 mean on a Maytag Neptune front load washer

E3 is an error with the motor itself unfortunately. The control board is detecting a voltage spike coming from the motor which is why it gives an E3. Usually this means you need to replace the mtoor to correct the issue.

How much does a motor cost to replace it? It almost seems to work when you move the clothes around. There seems to be too much water.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
it's about a $350 repair to replace the motor. To much water usually give a different error code, but if it still drains the water out, it just fills too high, you might need a pressure switch because it's not cutting the water off at a lower level.
