lid lock light flashing, clicking, beeping, turing on/off, error f5
my washer has started beeping repeatedly, showing error code f5. During this it is also clicking and powering its self on and off and the lid lock light is flashing. Touching the control buttons does nothing. After about a half hour it stops and I can start a load but sometime between starting and finishing it starts all over again. Unplugging it does not help as it starts immediately once plugged back in.
maytag top load washer model #MVWB955FW0
it is approximately 3-4 yrs old
I plan to do the repairs myself if a how to can be found
Nothing to completely fix it yet. I use an air compressor and blow the lid lock until the beeping stopped. I live in a very sandy area and sand is in the water and most everything that goes into the washer so possibly the sand is interfering with the lock mechanism. Also wondering if its a humidity issue. Im in florida and my washer is out in the garage. Over the winter it worked without a problem. Once spring hit with the rain and humidity it started throwing the error again. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
Is this a good question?
