Maytag Washing Machine Error Code F32: Stopping Mid-CycleBrand: Maytag
A customer contacted us regarding an issue with their Maytag washing machine displaying error code F32. The washer was stopping midway through the cycle and displaying an f32 error. Our technician conducted a diagnostic visit and, consulting the technical documentation, identified that the f32 error was related to the malfunctioning drain. This error typically occurs when the drain pump is burned out or there is a blockage in the drain system. This prevents the washing machine from draining water.
However, during the diagnostic process, the technician observed that the washing machine was indeed draining water, creating confusion about the cause of the error. Subsequently, the technician decided to inspect the drain pump, suspecting potential obstructions. Upon investigation, it was discovered that the impeller of the pump motor was partially damaged. One of the four blades on the impeller was found to be broken. This damage caused the pump to function, but the compromised impeller slowed down the drainage process.
The control board of this machine operates in a way that it counts a timeout. When it initiates water drainage, it has a specific timeframe in its memory during which the washing machine should complete the drainage. If, within this time and a small buffer, the machine fails to drain water, it triggers the f32 error, halting the operation.
Maytag washing machine error code F32: Fix
In our case, although there was drainage, it was twice as slow. Consequently, the water couldn’t drain within the designated timeframe, prompting the f32 error. With a comprehensive inventory of spare parts on our service vehicles, we had the necessary pump in stock. The technician promptly replaced the faulty pump, enabling the washing machine to fully drain water and resume operation without any errors.
