On a Maytag Maxima washer, we get 2 error codes E02 and F06. Any idea what that means?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I'm guessing about 10 years old. I'll have to call home to get the model number
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If it is not too difficult
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Where would we find the model number?

The F6E2 error code on those units means there is a communication error between the user interface and the central control unit.

Below is the troubleshooting sheet for that model follow the directions listed under that error on page 9. You will need a ohm/volt meter and know how to use it, if not you really need to call for service on this error otherwise you could just be spending money on parts you don't need.
