I have a Maytag Neptune Model #: MAH5500BWW Serial #: 74920520ZZ The door refuses to close. If I slam it a few times, it eventually closes, locks, and it washes fine. I was considering replacing the lock assembly but it seems there are different parts based on the serial number. Which part should I purchase?


If definitely sounds like you have a door latch problem. Slamming the door repeatedly, however, is probably doing more harm than good. You may be able to get the door to work intermittently for now, but eventually, the lock will stop working altogether.

You are correct. The part numbers ARE based on the Serial Number (series) when it comes to Maytag appliances. If a series is listed next to a part (series 10, for example), the part applies to all appliances that have a serial number beginning with "10" or higher. If an additional series is listed (20, for example), the part applies to all appliance that have a serial number beginning with "20" and higher.

EXAMPLE:

Series 10 (serial numbers beginning with "10 to "19")
Series 20 (serial numbers beginning with "20" to "29")
Series 30 (serial numbers beginning with "30 to "39")

So...using YOUR appliance serial number for this example, if you had a part that had several series listings, you would use the one that matches nearest to your serial number. Say, for example you had a door latch that had three different versions (series 10, 20 and 30). You would use series 30, as the number is the closest to the beginning two digits in your serial number. If your serial number began with "19", for example, you would use series "10", because the first two digits in your serial number do not exceed "20". If only one series number is listed, or if no series number is listed, it applies to ALL washers under that particular model number regardless of serial number. Confused now? So am I.

Based on the information you've provided, the part number for a replacement latch assembly for your washer is: 22004435.

You can purchase replacement parts at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites on the list also inclide helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. There are also helpful wiring diagrams included on some sites. Prices vary, so shop and compare.

NOTE: If your model number is not listed on some sites, use the part number from the Sears site as your search criteria. Sometimes certain model numbers do not always appear on parts websites (due to the appliance being too old, recently added model, etc.), but the part numbers generally will, because many parts are interchangeable between model numbers. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

where's my serial number


You should provide a BRAND name in order to find a definite answer to this question. Different manufacturers place this information on nameplates in different locations on their appliances. Most commonly, the Model and Serial numbers are located around the oven door opening. You will have to open the door to see the nameplate. If you have a lower oven drawer, its probably located there. On certain models of Maytag and Fridgidaire (I'm sure there are other manufacturers as well) this same information is located on the BACK of the operator console. If you are still having problems, please post back with your brand name and I'll see if I can give you better guidance.

HAVE BEEN TRYING TO UPGRADE AN ACER 5630 TO 2GB RAM THE MACHINE WONT ACCEPT THE TWO CARDS TOGETHER. BUT BOTH WORK OK INDIVIDUALLY AND IN EITHER SLOT. THE TWO ORIGINAL 512K CARDS WORK FINE. ANY IDEAS

IT IS JUST your memory which is somehow mismatched or tweaked in the BIOS! If they are physically different other than in the serial number printed on them, it's best to return them to the seller asking for a matched pair (please.) First though, note that the laptop can take 4GB max...may as well go with that...and especially if they are firmly in the lookalike category, you might try going into BIOS memory settings and setting things up for the new memory. Often enough setting a different voltage is appropriate, as is marking down the old settings and backing them off to automatic before optimizing for your particular make.

Oh yeah. Sometimes there are motherboard switches or such that need to be switched when you change memory too...sorry, I didn't manage to look into that; but if it's not staring you in the face when you put the memory in with good lighting, the BIOS should be enough.

the timeing is off and on it stope before it complete the wash.


It needs a new timer. You can easily fix this but the part can be expensive. New timers can cost up to $100. It may not be worth it. Call an appliance parts store in your area and get a price quote. Have the model and serial number available when you call. If it is more than a few years old try a used appliance dealer, they may sell you a used part. It is easy to replace, just keep track of the wires. Sometimes the part you get will be made by a different compayn than the one you have. This is ok it will still fit. Just match the wire colors or numbers.
