Maytag Washer Error Codes

Maytag Washer Error Code dET

If your Maytag washer displays the dET error code, it signifies that the detergent cartridge is not detected in the dispenser. This error is applicable to models equipped with detergent cartridges, such as Load & Go cartridges, rather than washers using single-load doses of detergent.

  1. Missing or Improperly Inserted Cartridge: The detergent cartridge may be absent or not inserted correctly into the designated dispenser compartment.
  2. Dispenser Drawer Not Closed Properly: The dispenser drawer, housing the detergent cartridge, may not be closed securely.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Check for Detergent Cartridge: Open the dispenser drawer and ensure that a detergent cartridge, especially a Load & Go cartridge, is present. Confirm that the cartridge is inserted correctly into its designated compartment.
  2. Verify Dispenser Drawer Closure: Ensure that the dispenser drawer is fully closed and latched securely. Examine the drawer for any obstructions that might hinder proper closure.
  3. Restart the Washer: If the dET error persists after confirming the presence and proper insertion of the detergent cartridge, try restarting the washer. Power off the washer, wait for a few minutes, and then turn it back on.
  4. Inspect Cartridge and Dispenser for Damage: Check the detergent cartridge for any signs of damage that might hinder proper detection. Examine the dispenser compartment for any obstructions or damage.
  5. Replace or Reinsert Cartridge: If the detergent cartridge is damaged or not detected despite proper insertion, consider replacing it with a new one. Reinsert the cartridge carefully, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
