Maytag MHWE300 will not spin
« on: April 04, 2014, 04:56:46 PM »
My model number is Maytag MHWE300VW00.  Our washer says it is a 3000 model.  The error code is "F-11".  The machine will not spin.  I have searched very hard to find out how to trouble shoot this problem.  All of the information appears to apply to different models.  but I can't find a reference as to how to get into diagnostic or service mode.  I want to see if my issue is with the motor or control board?    It is a font loader.  It has been noisy for the last few months but always worked.  I have cleaned the filter and checked wires for issues but I cannot figure out how to trouble shoot this  "F-11" error code. The door lock light comes on when placed in "drain and spin" mode. The machine shoots a little water into the tub and the door lock solenoid loudly sounds,  then the lights on the panel move to spin and absolutely nothing happens except that the time remaining light slowly counts down from 11 to about 8 then the "F-11" code flashes.  One of the manuals on this site mentions a possible fuse but for the life of me I cannot find a fuse.  Can anyone offer me some guidance before my wife goes crazy. This machine runs everyday even more than the car.  Too many children in the house.  Thanks.

Thank you for the tech sheet.  I still find the diagnostic hard to enter.  The buttons on this machine are click on-click-off.  To press and hold the button then requires you to click it to get to the on position but then you must click it to get to the off position.  I just can't get it to work.  I'll keep trying different buttons but I'm not having any luck.  Can anyone offer some advice?

That model should have momentary push buttons. Can you upload a picture of the front  control panel?

I found the tech sheet for the machine in the lower panel. It says the same as the download posted earlier. I used the "delay start" button with the power off and it ran a diagnostic test. Thank you all for your help. Either a bad motor or control board. I am tired of trying and don't want to throw money at it. I am going to replace it and move on. I found a Fridge Affinity top loader nearby. Reviews are bad but owner loves the machine. Any comments from your experience?
