Washer Repair / Re: Maytag Bravos X won't spin or agitate correctly

F7E1 means Basket Speed Sensor Fault: See Test #3a Drive System - Shifter.  You can buy a Digital Multimeter for $10-20 at Hardware Store to test the Shifter/Actuator & Wire Harness from Main Board to Shifter.
I would check movement of Agitator (with top panel lifted) to be sure agitator is rotating both direction's, just run the Manual Mode with Low Agitation Test (lid must be locked before you run this test).  If Agitator only moves one direction (should give an F7E6 - Motor Fault) then check the Capacitor (under Test #3b).

The agitator moves easily in both directions IF there is no load.  When I put a heavy enough load (a towel for example) it "slips".  This was confirmed by allowing it to agitate (it ran just fine) and then grabbing it as it was agitating.  A very small exerted force caused it to slip, almost like a belt on a car that is not tight enough or lost all friction. I will actually get this from ONLY testing the spin cycle.  During spin, the machine quickly runs the spinning drive on and off a few times (this may be normal, but I swear it used to be one long WHHHHIRRRRRR!). Then it just fails and stops spinning before reaching a high enough speed or duration of spin to get any water out.

F0E5 means Clothing should be distributed evenly when loading (always load heavier fabrics first and if you only have a wash plate instead of agitator then place fabrics on edge of basket not in the center, specified in your Owner's Manual)

This comes up when its spinning.  It is typically always coupled with the failure to see speed error.

F0E2 - Run an empty wash load with 2 Cups of White Distilled Vinegar (pour into basket not dispenser) to get rid of the Suds issue.
If Vinegar doesn't resolve the F0E2 Code - Drain water from tub 1st then remove pressure hose from main control board and blow through it 5 times to be sure hose isn't plugged from fecal matter on diapers or leaking air (after reconnecting hose you must run a Drain/Spin Cycle).
Cool, hopefully this resolves it.

BTW: Always rinse off diapers with Water Hose (or soak them in a bucket with bleach or vinegar then rinse) before putting in Washer.

The temptation to say "no shit" here is very high  O0

The biggest problem continues to be lack of adequate agitation.  The plate spins freely until any sort of force is placed on it.  The clothes do not move at all.

When I first bought the washer, I always noticed that during agitation, the inside basket would rotate a bit (1/4 to 1/3 of a turn) each time the agitator changed direction, and it no longer does this.  There is no inertia to turn the basket because the agitator simply is not moving with any weight on it.  Are the clothes meant to stay on the outside all the time?  I never worried about carefully placing clothes around the outside before and it always agitated with gusto (I guess stupid me for not reading the manual in depth).

You don't think the tech will already know what to do?

The tech needs to step it through the tests and see what the issue is then.

Check Agitator Block, it may have worn the ears off the block and dropped below the Spin Tube rubbing the basket to the tub.

I too have the same problems. Sometimes I can do the rinse cycle fine but seems every time I throw clothes in (even if just for rinse cycle) I get 0E. I drain out the water using the shopvac via main drain hose or use the vac on the little drain hose on the front and then it continues. The successful rinse cycles drains the water fast. Ours too makes that low hum noise the times it wants to drain but does not (around the 13-15 minute mark). Last week I was able to do 3 loads of wash but now it is giving 0E pretty consistent when clothes are in it.

Drain water then remove the Pump Filter (aka Coin Trap) and use the ShopVac to remove any debris from the Tub to Pump Hose (this hose attaches to other end of pump filter housing).
Let us know if it resolves your drain issue.
Maybe an LG Tech has the Service Repair Manual (P/N MFL30599128) to assist you with disassembly and troubleshooting.

Kitchen Aid dishwasher Model#KUDE70FXSS2 leaks out of vent on the bottom left of door. I've saw some info about Whirlpool having this problem with some models but I have not seen what it takes to fix the problem. Any help with what parts to replace if any would be appreciated.

when it does run for you, do you hear a loud growl from the machine when it goes into spin?

Hi thanks for replying

No, it's quite silent (never has growled or sounded off during the spin cycle)

I'm just interested in any ideas that I can tell the tech to try out when they get here
