MIDEA top load washer faults and troubleshootingMIDEA top load washer faults and troubleshooting

List of faults and inspection (Midea top load washer):

MIDEA Top Loading Washing Machine PROBLEM: No water flows in
REPAIR or CHECK: If the power is off or the fuse is burned out.
If the water supply is cut off or the water pressure is too low.
If the inlet hose is properly connected and the water tap is opened.
If the filtering screen of inlet valve is blocked by dirt.
If the coil of inlet valve is damaged. (The slight electromagnetic sound is normal phenomenon when the inlet valve is switched on)
If the “Start / Pause” button is pressed after the power switch is pressed.

MIDEA Top Loading Washing Machine PROBLEM: Washer will not wash
REPAIR or CHECK: If the power is off or the fuse is burned out.
If the power supply voltage is too low.
If the water amount reaches to the required water level. (The washer will not work if the water amount does not reach the required water level)
If it is set to “Delay” washing mode. (It will only start to work until the reservation time reached)

MIDEA Top Loading Washing Machine PROBLEM: Washer will not drain
REPAIR or CHECK: If the water drain hose is placed very high.
If the end of water drain hose is sealed in pond.
If the internal rubber ring of drain valve is blocked by dirt.

MIDEA Top Loading Washing Machine PROBLEM: Abnormal spinning
REPAIR or CHECK: If the door lid is closed.
If all clothing piled largely at one side of barrel or the clothing is excessively placed.
If the washer is not placed in stable condition or it is placed in inclination state. (The ground is not flat).
If the motor belt is loose.

IMPORTANT: During the spin process, if clothing is piled up at one side of the spin barrel, it will cause unbalance of spin barrel resulting in striking. At this moment, the computer inside the washer will feel this unbalance phenomenon and will automatically correct it (fill in water Washing). However, if unbalance situation is not removed after continuous three corrections, which means the computer auto-correction can not resolve the problem. Then the user has to manually and evenly place the clothing inside the barrel to solve the problem.

My Midea MB45 fills up with water but does not complete the wash cycle. The wash cycle starts then the machine stops washing – wash for about one to two minuets. It does not move on to the next cycle unless I manually go through the functions and select the rinse and spin.

No water flows. Error program


10 Melissa miller August 2, 2017 at 3:58 am

Everything is fine.
How can I Reboot the panel from the previous setting and e2 code?
I left it unplugged overnight with no change. Is there a secret reset button?


11 Melissa miller August 1, 2017 at 8:07 pm

I have a E2 Code and it will not clear. I have unplugged overnight and it remains stuck in the same settings with code as when it appeared and stopped washing. I did move the washer when it was running but I don’t know where it was in the cycle. I have taken the wet laundry out and water. I removed the hose and it’s clear. I don’t think there’s a mechanical issue at this point if I could clear the panel


12 Faraz March 19, 2017 at 5:07 pm

My Midea washing machine play/pause button is not working.
I checked all water supply and everything is fine but play button is not working.


13 Diana Jean March 8, 2017 at 3:05 pm

My Midea Top Load automatic washing machine keeps on making E2 error. I clean the drain outlet and hose well but still on making E2 error. I just bought this 4 months ago.


14 Mark August 4, 2018 at 9:14 pm

Unplug the washing machine before working on it. Did you clean the side lint filter? Did you remove the water pump and check it for broken parts and clogs. The back and bottom come off easy. There is a one screw bottom drain.
Remove the hoses with a pair of channel locks by pinching the clamp tips together and twisting. The drain hose comes off easily. Slowly tilt the machine to let the water drain out.

My Midea mae 80 washing machine has very low pressure flowing into the machine, I have blown into the hose to try and clear any blockages, the water pressure is ok for a few minutes but then the pressure drops again, kindly assist.


16 DIY Project Help Tips September 7, 2016 at 9:45 pm

Durotimi oye,
Have you made sure the water supply valves are fully OPEN.
Take the water supply hoses OFF of the Washer and test the water flow into a bucket.
If good, then the issue is with the WATER INLET VALVE on your Midea Washer.
Check the water inlet valve to be sure it is not clogged or blocked and therefore not letting in water at the proper pressure.

Midea washing machine problem, it displays E2b error.


19 DIY Project Help Tips July 22, 2016 at 8:06 pm

Midea Washing Machine E2 B Error = Draining has not finished correctly.
What to check?
Check drain hose and drain pump to be sure they are not clogged and clear if needed.
