Maytag Washer Error Codes

Maytag Washer Error Code rL or F34

If your Maytag washer displays the error code rL or F34, it indicates that the appliance has detected items inside the drum during a Clean Washer cycle. The Clean Washer cycle is designed to ensure the washing machine’s interior remains free from residues and build-ups, promoting optimal performance. The error code serves as a reminder to run the Clean Washer cycle with an empty drum.

  1. Empty the Drum: Before initiating the Clean Washer cycle, ensure that the drum is completely empty. Remove any clothing, textiles, or foreign objects.
  2. Run Clean Washer Cycle Again: Start the Clean Washer cycle anew, making sure that the drum is void of any items. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for running this specific cycle.
  3. Regular Maintenance: Make it a practice to check the drum thoroughly before initiating any cleaning cycles. Remove items inadvertently left behind to prevent future occurrences of the error code.
  4. Educate Users: If multiple users operate the washing machine, educate them about the importance of running the Clean Washer cycle with an empty drum to avoid the rL or F34 error.

Preventive Measures:

  1. Check Pockets Before Loading: Encourage users to check clothing pockets before loading the washer to prevent small items from being overlooked.
  2. Follow Manufacturer’s Recommendations: Adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines regarding the frequency of running the Clean Washer cycle. Regular maintenance can prolong the life of your Maytag washer.

If the error code persists despite following the recommended steps, or if there are concerns about the washer’s performance, it is advisable to contact professional technicians, such as those at Appliance Repair Los Angeles.
