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

We bought it in 2011- The model # is MHWE450WW-02

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

YES

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

the F-30 error code means DISPENSER SYSTEM ERROR .When the dispenser motor cannot be driven to its proper position.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

2. Check mechanical linkage from dispenser motor to the top of the dispenser.

3. Check the wire harness connections to the dispenser motor and Central Control Unit (CCU).

4. Check dispenser motor for powered rotations.

So you will need to remove the washer top panel and check the dispenser linkage to see if it is binding or anything .

Where is the linkage dispenser located ?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

You will need to remove the washer top and the dispenser linkage is located right on top of the dispenser assembly on the left hand side of the washer.

And I never sent you a phone call prompt that is the web site that we are using NOT I !
