Modern technique has improved capabilities and impeccable quality. Maytag washers of professional and domestic classes are in demand: an easy to control device due to its functionality makes washing a pleasant process that does not require your effort.

Breakdown of a washing machine is a very rare occasion and usually is caused by a poor quality of tap water. If there is a failure, Maytag washer’s display will show you an error code notifying you of a problem cause.

All Maytag washer models with a display are equipped with the function of displaying an error code in case of some malfunctions and breakages. If you know the meaning of a certain error, you will be able to eliminate the damage by your own without calling a specialist. However, it is only about the most elementary errors. For example, for many washers, the 4E error code means the problems with supplying of water. Usually, it appears because of lack of water in a plumbing.

But the same code is shown in more complicated situations:

  • Contacts and connections of the priming valve.
  • There is a foreign object in the filling valve.
  • The inaccurate connection of cold and hot water – they are connected in reverse.
  • The connection of a liquid hose to a detergent container is broken, for example, the hose is pinched or torn.

Similar situations happen with other codes. Remember, if you know how to decipher an error, you will be able to solve the problem by your own (that is only for slight damages). But in most cases, the error codes of the Maytag washers, encrypted with a specific code, are for professionals who could repair the failed device.
