Maytag bravos washer f1 error code

Thiss code indicates that the motor is not working. Please, be careful, because 3E and E3 are different codes indicating different things. The 3E fault code signals a motor stop due to an over-current. Please, note the following appropriate readings:

  • Pin 1 and Pin 2 of CN9 = 3.0 ohms.
  • Pin 1 and Pin 3 of CN9 = 3.0 ohms.
  • Pin 2 and Pin 3 of CN9 = 3.0 ohms.
  • Any 2 Pins (1, 2, 3) on Motor Connector = 3.0 ohms.

If there are no big deviations, you are in for a little guesswork.

The E3 means that the ain control board is trying to get the motor to run, but cannot detect a tachometer signal. The motor will not be running. This can happen because:

  • Stuck drum. Unplug the washer and make sure there is nothing to block it.
  • The hall sensor has gotten loose or faulty. It won’t let the control board recognize it as spinning. As a result, the motor will stop and there will be E3 on the display. It may read rpm partially. Then you will see SUdS on the screen.
  • Check the wire harness and connections around the motor. Try unplugging each connection and plugging it back at a time. If you find any loose one, bend-lock it.
