Maytag Washer Error Codes

Maytag Washer Error Code drn

If your Maytag washer is displaying the error code “DRN,” it signifies a drainage problem that requires your attention. This error often arises, particularly after a recent installation when the drain hose may not be set up according to the specified guidelines.

Understanding the DRN Error:

The “DRN” error code indicates that your washer is not draining correctly, potentially disrupting the normal laundry cycle. This issue is commonly associated with the installation process, particularly the configuration of the drain hose.

  1. Incorrect Drain Hose Installation: The error is more likely to occur if the drain hose has not been installed according to the manufacturer’s specifications during the initial setup.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Check Drain Hose Installation: Begin by inspecting the installation of the drain hose. Ensure it is properly connected and follows the recommended guidelines provided in the washer’s manual.
  2. Look for Clogs: Examine the drain hose for any obstructions or kinks that might impede proper water flow. Clear any debris or blockages that you find.
  3. Inspect the Drain Pump: The “DRN” error may also stem from a clogged or malfunctioning drain pump. Inspect the pump for any foreign objects or blockages and clear them if present.

Preventing Future Occurrences:

  1. Follow Installation Guidelines: When installing or repositioning the washer, adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines for the correct placement and configuration of the drain hose.
  2. Regular Maintenance: Perform routine checks on the drain hose and pump to ensure they remain free from obstructions. This can prevent future occurrences of the “DRN” error.
