Maytag Maxima washer error code F06 E02 is a door lock error. This error code happens when the washer is not able to lock the door. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as the door not being properly closed, the door latch being damaged, or the door lock being damaged.

1. Check for blockages in the washer's drain system

To check for blockages in the washer's drain system, first turn off the washer and remove the water supply line from the washer. Next, remove the drain hose from the washer. Finally, use a funnel to pour a small amount of water down the drain hose and into the drain pan. If water flows freely down the drain hose, then there are no blockages. If water does not flow freely down the drain hose, then there are blockages, and the washer will need to be repaired or replaced.

2. Clean the washer's drain pump filter

  1. Remove the washer's front panel.
  2. Remove the drain pump filter.
  3. Clean the filter with a cloth or a vacuum cleaner.
  4. Reinstall the drain pump filter.
  5. Reconnect the washer's front panel.

3. Inspect the washer's drain hose for kinks or blockages

  1. Open the washer door and lift out the tub.
  2. Inspect the drain hose for kinks or blockages. If there are any, fix them using a pipe cleaner or a piece of string.
  3. Replace the drain hose if necessary.
  4. Replace the tub if necessary.

If the answers above didn't work then you should also try:

  1. Replace the washer's drain hose if it is damaged.
  2. Run a diagnostic test on the washer to identify the root cause of the error code.
  3. Contact a Maytag customer service representative for further assistance.
