Maytag Washer F9E1 Error ResolvedBrand: Maytag
A customer reported a malfunctioning Maytag washer that displayed an F9E1 error and would shut off at the beginning of the cycle. An extended drain time is often signaled by the F9E1 error. Potential culprits include a faulty drain pump, water level sensor malfunction, drain system clog, or other related issues.
Our technician initiated a diagnostic mode to pinpoint the cause. By manually testing the drain pump, he observed a lack of water drainage. This suggested a problem with either the pump itself or a blockage within it. Vibrations from the pump indicated that it was receiving voltage from the control board. This eliminated issues with power supply or motor coil burnout.
The Maytag washing machine model in question features an internal filter designed to collect debris such as hair and foreign objects. Unlike some other brands, accessing this filter requires professional assistance as it is not externally accessible. To proceed with the diagnosis, our technician carefully drained the water from the machine.
Maytag Washer F9E1 Error: Causes and Repair
Upon accessing the internal filter, he discovered a substantial accumulation of foreign objects, primarily comprised of dog hair. Dog owners may inadvertently contribute to washing machine issues. This occurs when washing items like pet blankets, introducing a significant amount of dog hair into the drainage system.
The technician meticulously cleared the filter, reassembled the washing machine, and retested it. With the blockage removed, the machine resumed normal operation. Considering this repair is favorable as it doesn’t necessitate ordering expensive replacement parts, ensuring a quick and cost-effective resolution.
