Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

F06 E01 means that your main central control board (CCU) and the motor control board (MCU) are not communicating with one another properly. The motor control board is located under the tub mounted to the floor of the washer. The CCU is mounted under the top panel of the washer and is the part with about 100 wires going into it. You'll want to remove the top panel and the lower front panel to check the wire connections and make sure they are all secure. If everything looks good, then you just have to guess which control board you want to replace first, either the MCU or the CCU and the problem is that there is no way to test and determine which part is faulty so it's just a guessing game. Generally on these units, the MCU is the apart that fails I've found and sometimes you can even remove the board inside the MCU plastic box and see a black mark on the back of the board. If so then you can feel comfortable that this will definitely fix the issue, but even if you don't see a black mark, you'd want to replace the MCU first as it's typically the part that fails.

We have a Maytag Maxima front loading washer. We were in
Greetings, we have a Maytag Maxima front loading washer. We were in vacation and returned earlier this week. While on vacation I shut the water supply off to the washer to prevent flooding in event of a hose rupture. Upon returning my wife loaded the washer, closed the door and proceeded to start the washer as usual. Unfortunately, she forgot the I had shut off the water supply. The washer only hums and the door is locked so we cannot get the clothes out. She unplugged the washer. I subsequently turned on the water supply and plugged in the washer. All we get is a humming and the door remains locked. Can you guide us on how to get the washer working again? Thanks … read more
