Customer Question
Hi Using a MHW7100DC...

Hi Using a MHW7100DC Maytag washer it is not spinning 100% of the time. It may start a cycle, then stop. When it tries to spin in makes a low noise. Doesn't seem to be working correctly. Your thoughts?

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

2 years old

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

Depends on what's involved

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

I have 4 high-end rental units. This is a new tenant. Not sure if the washer is operating correctly and they are just not used to it or if it needs repair.

Error codes: F07 and E09
Appliance Technician: Joel Swenson,

Can you double check that for me because there is not a listed error code of F7-E9 or F07 - E09, for that model, it stops at F07 - E08 which is :

MOTOR OVER TEMPERATURE The motor has overheated.

The ACU will wait to restart the washer until the motor temperature returns to normal levels.

Possible Causes

• Improper installation of washer. Ensure that washer is not located near a heat source and has proper ventilation.

• Make sure that the drum is not overloaded. Verify that the door can close easily and that all clothing fits inside the drum.

• Mechanical friction – verify that drum rotates freely

so let me know , thanks.
