Ofb error code Maytag washer


There is an imbalance in the washing load

First try the following steps: If the washing machine stops and the dial is flashing, restart the wash, close the lid and press the START/PAUSE button. In addition, the washing machine may vibrate during spin or stop altogether, with all indicators flashing. Place items evenly around the washing plate in loose piles. Adding wet items or excess water to the basket may affect the balance of the washing machine. Do not wash individual items. Using a few extra items, such as towels, can balance individual items, such as a rug or denim jacket. Redistribute the load if the dial is flashing, close the lid and press START/PAUSE. To wash large items that do not absorb moisture, such as duvets or jackets with a polymer filling, use the deep cycle for large items/sheets. Other items should not be washed in the large items/sheets cycle.

nd error code Maytag washer


The machine does not drain water

The main component of the washing machine that pushes water out is the drain water pump. The washing machine will not drain water if it is damaged or has failed for other reasons. Before ordering a new drain pump, carefully inspect the drain pump to make sure that no tiny object, such as clothes or something similar, is stuck in it, as this can lead to a lack of drainage or even a spin problem. You can check the drain pump with a multimeter to see if it needs to be removed and replaced if it is not clogged. Request Service

Kathryn Bragg

Superior Appliance Service is reliable. My range was recently repaired. Wow! The technician came on time. He’s accurate and gave a fair estimate. This is a team I’ll remain with and recommend.

Jimmy Smith

Satisfied overall. After a few days with a leaking washing machine, I booked a next-day appointment with them. A technician arrived the following day and did his best. He also performed some maintenance on my dryer and didn’t charge me for it, plus provided tips for maintaining them in excellent shape. I’d utilize them again since their charges appeared industry-standard.

Derrick French

Andrew from Superior Appliances came out within three hours of our call. The engineer was courteous and explained everything before starting. Bravo!

Jack Nunez

Fair prices, money-saving incentives, and qualified personnel are offered. To sum it up, I’m delighted with Superior Appliance Service and would suggest them. Well-informed and customer-focused. They care about everyone they’ve helped.

Calvin Summers

My front load washer gasket needed replacing, but Scott suggested a much better and less expensive solution. So pleased. My advice is only given by people who value their customers. Excellent appliance repair specialist.

Jimmy Rivera

If they can repair my damaged Bosch washer, they can do anything. My washer broke for more than a month, and other firms told me to purchase a new one. I had no doubt theycould fix any appliance until they did.

Maria Vargas

Excellent service! On time, the professional explained everything. He spent many hours replacing my faulty washer and dryer, yet the service charge was still extremely fair. Unexpected? I’d hire Superior Appliance Service again and confidently share positive feedback about them

Whitney Livingston

During the installation, the technician suggested that I put on shoe covers. He was extremely professional and knew what he was doing. He also advised me to throw out the first batch of ice produced by the refurbished ice maker (which I already knew, but the mention was so professional). The company communicates quickly and expertly. Everything was an A+. I’m a difficult customer, but working with Superior Appliances made it simple to keep my gas appliance in good working order.

Theresa Welch

A repairman told me my washing machine’s motor was dead and I shouldn’t try to fix it. Great advice was offered on buying a second. Because I’m so appreciative, I’ve suggested two friends. I’ll use them for another repair. They’re amazing!

Michelle Joyner

After repairing the washing machine, the technician further checked his work. Yes, he remained for the whole wash cycle. He was extremely professional and quick to my first inquiry, getting as much information as possible before coming to our home to fix our new fridge. The specialist came on schedule, disguised the issue and solved it promptly.

Donald Teresa

Best appliance repair. They mended my oven and helped me with other equipment. Affordable and competent staff. Outstanding service!

Matthew Reid

Called this company to do some work on my dishwasher in my house they came in a timely fashion. They tried there best to repair my dishwasher but they couldn’t so I had to end up buying a new one and they refunded me my money. Great customer service I would highly recommend this company.
