Maytag Bravos Washer Troubleshooting

The Maytag Bravos washer comes with a built-in diagnostic system. With a series of error codes that display the current issues experienced by your machine here are some of the most common error codes that display to help you with troubleshooting your Maytag Bravos washer.

1. Error Code “LF” (Code F30)
Washer is taking too long to fill. Check the inlet hoses for any kinks or clogs. Make sure that both water faucets are turned on and check if the water pressure is correct.

2. Error Code “Ld” (Code F32)
Draining takes too long. Check the drain hose or pump for any clogs. Make sure that the drain hose is not higher than 96″ reaching the drain pipe. Check if your drain pump is running correctly.

3. Error Code “uL”
The machine is running an imbalanced load correction routine at the end of the cycle. Make sure your load is not unbalanced before starting your cycle. If the problem persists after the routine has stopped, open the lid and redistribute the load. Restart your cycle.

4. Error Code “oL” (Code F70)
The washer could not start the wash cycle after filling. Check if your washer is overloaded, as it can drain the water and detergent. In case your washer seems to be overloaded, lower the load. Close the lid and restart the cycle.

5. Error Code “Sd” (Code 71)
Suds detected. Make sure you use the right type and amount of detergent. Run a recovery cycle using cold water without detergent.

6. Error Code “lid” (Code F81)
Make sure that your lid is closed correctly, or if anything is blocking the lid to be closed. Restart your cycle.

7. Error Code “Po”
Lid was left open. The “Po” error flashes in case the lid has been left open for more than 10 minutes. Close the lid to stop the drain pump.

8. Error Code “HC”
Hot and cold hoses have been switched. Rearrange them to fix the problem.

9. Error Code “dL” (Code F80,F82,F84,F85)
The lid cannot be locked. Check for any possible items that might be blocking the lid from closing properly. Check the wires between the lid lock and the control board for any loose wires or damages. Measure the resistance level of the connection between the control board and the lid lock. If any parts seem to be damaged, replace them.

10. Error Code “F1” (Code F60-68)
There is a primary control failure. Before replacing the machine control assembly disconnect the machine from electricity and make sure that all wires are connected properly. Try plugging your machine back and starting a cycle. If the problem persists, replace the faulty machine control assembly.
