Our maytag washer stopped...

Our maytag washer stopped working and is displaying E2 code.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

MAH9700AWM

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If I can

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I took off the back and it looks like it wants to start and moves slightly but doesn't turn completely

No problem. If you get any of the E2 E3 or 2E errors, it means that your drive motor is failing. Open the door and spin the basket by hand to make sure it spins smoothy. If not, the entire tub assembly would need to be pulled out and split apart to check for something between the tubs or if you have a bad main rear bearing. On the other hand, if the basket spins smoothly by hand, the motor on the back of the tub just needs to be replaced. Below is a link to the part. It's about $400 so I'm not sure if it's worth fixing, but that is completely up to you.
