Check out the motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt components. If you have either... then you will need the the new motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness.

See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

Maytag Neptune front loader, model # MAH5500BWW had a digital error code reading Lr. Will not agitate or spin out.


the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit boardat the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its controlboard at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or controlboard at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N12002039).
Hope that helps,
Thanks,
Lee

I have an Maytag neptune with an error code of Lr. It fills but doesn't seem to turn when washing.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Lr means locked rotor, this issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and windings. If the wiring is good and windings are not burnt then you'll need to replace your motor and motor control board. These are sold as one unit, it is a 3 phase motor and one of the phases is bad. A little power surge can damage the boards. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

Hi.

Error LR means Locked Rotor.

Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.

Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.

See this post for troubleshooting the Lr error code. . http://www.fixya.com/support/t2419091-maytag_neptune_top_load_fav6800aww_tub

Lr is locked rotor. My first thought was that this could be a Motor Controller issue. This owner replaced tried that and it did not resolve the issue. He then replaced the main Control Board and that fixed his machine. Without known good parts (Control Board Motor Controller) this might be difficult for a DIY fix.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

If you are going to try to DIY the repair I will see if I can help……Rich

just an FYI to anyone who might need to know. my neptune started kicking up an error of LR and stopping. i ended up sending an email to maytag and got a response back from one of their techs. the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit board at the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its control board at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or control board at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N 12002039).

hope the info helps someone as i had a heck of a time finding it.

lr is a code for a locked rotor assy, on the motor itself, depending on age of machine you might have warr on the motor(part anyway) check your user guide and warr info. probably gonna need to install a "neptune repair kit" which includes new motor and new motor controller
