Using the FanFresh Option on a Front Load Washer

How to Use the FanFresh® option on your Maytag Front Load Washer

FanFresh® cycle is designed to serve two purposes:

  1. FanFresh® keeps your clothing fresh inside the washer after a cycle is complete until you have a chance to remove them, It does this by tumbling the drum occasionally to keep the clothing from settling.
  2. FanFresh® can also dry light items or easily dried clothing without running them in the dryer. A fan will run to circulate air inside the washer drum.

With the washer on, press to activate the FanFresh® option. This will periodically tumble the load after the end of the cycle for up to 16 hours while the integrated fan circulates air through the washer to reduce humidity. You may also activate the FanFresh® option without running a cycle by pressing and holding for 3 seconds, then pressing START/PAUSE.


The door will lock while the FanFresh® option is active. Press the POWER button to stop the cycle and unlock the door.

FanFresh® option is not available if the spin speed is set to No Spin.
