Maytag Washer Error Codes

Maytag Washer Error Code F7 E1

Maytag washers may display the F7 E1 error code, indicating that the correct speed for the selected cycle is not being reached. This error typically arises from issues related to the washer’s operation and may require attention to ensure optimal performance.

  1. Overloaded Drum: The drum is loaded with an excessive amount of laundry. Check and reduce the load in the drum to the recommended capacity. Overloading can hinder the washer’s ability to achieve the required speed.
  2. Shipping Bolts Not Removed:If the washer is new or recently installed, the shipping bolts may not have been removed. Ensure that all shipping bolts have been removed. These bolts are designed to stabilize the drum during transportation and must be taken out before operating the washer.
  3. Mechanical or Technical Issues: Persistent occurrence of the error code despite addressing the above factors. If the problem persists, it is advisable to seek the expertise of a trained technician. The error may be indicative of underlying mechanical or technical issues that require professional assessment.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Check Drum Load: Verify that the drum is not overloaded with clothes. Distribute the load evenly to prevent imbalance during the spin cycle.
  2. Inspect for Shipping Bolts: If the washer is new or has been recently installed, confirm that all shipping bolts have been removed. These bolts are typically located at the back of the washer.
  3. Perform a Test Cycle: Run a small test cycle with a reduced load to see if the error persists. This helps identify whether the issue is load-related or indicative of a deeper problem.
  4. Seek Professional Assistance: If the error continues after addressing the recommended steps, it is advisable to contact a trained technician. Professional expertise is crucial for diagnosing and resolving potential mechanical or technical issues affecting the washer’s speed.
