If the machine is not over filling, your drain hose may be too low, allowing water to run out of the machine, otherwise, if the machine is indeed over filling, it is most likely that the pressure switch is bad, or the pressure switch hose is damaged or came off of the switch itself. You can check to see if the pressure hose is still attached by opening the top control panel, taking the pressure hose off the switch, and blowing into the hose, if you have air resistance, and/or can hear the water bubbling in the machine, the hose connection is ok, the switch is most likely the problem. Of course, it's always best to just dismantle the whole machine and check it out, but I'd try that test first.

Maytag Neptune front loader water won't stop filling


Pressure switch is either dirty from well water or the hose to the switch has come off of the switch.
It is possible the pressure switch has gone bad but, I would check the fist ones I mentioned.
It's also possible the board has went bad or there may be a fuse that has blown.

I have Maytag Neptune front loader washer. When


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.

Maytag Neptune top loader washer not filling


You have tried both a Hot fill and a Cold fill and still no water flow?


You could try going into Service Mode and turn on the water inlet valves with console commands. See page 16 of the Service Manual and see if you can turn the water inlet valves one at a time and get water to flow into the machine. Getting into Service Mode is easy to do


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


If still no water flow it would be time to check 120VAC on the water valve solenoids when you command them on in Service Mode. If no 120VAC present then we might have a Stuck open High level pressure switch which would disconnect 120VAC to the Control Board relays that operate to switch 120VAC to the Hot/Cold solenoid valves.


How do you feel about troubleshooting? Do you have a DVM? I have the schematic in PDF format if you need. Let me know if you want to DIY the fix......Rich

How do U clean strainer on a Maytag Neptune MAH6500AWW


not sure what model you have but many front loaders have a panel in the front below the door that can be removed by removing screws at the very bottom front edge, and you will see a round plastic cap unscrew it all the way out water will flow out so lean the machine way back and have a small bucket and towels ready, or clamp the prepump hose remove strainer and clear debris, put it all back together and water test befor replacing panel.

No flow


Hello hedrickcari
Welcome,

You said, you are getting a no flow error code. This washer was installed today.If I have an air pocket, how do you get it out so the washer senses the water flow?

First I would unplug the washer for 5 minutes and see if it resets and clears the errors!



Make sure the door is tightly closed. (Unlike top-loaders, front-loading washing machines must be closed in order for water to begin filling. Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.)

Then make sure the machine is plugged in to a live (or working) electrical outlet. It's a good idea to check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if needed or check the fuse if you have a fuse box.

Next, turn the control dial to the proper cycle and push the START/STOP button firmly. Then turn both faucets (hot and cold) on all the way. Take a look at the inlet hoses (which go from your pipes to your washer) and straighten them out if necessary.

Turn off the faucets and then disconnect the hoses. Clean the hose filter screens to remove any blockage that could be plugging up the water line.

Then replace the filter screens, reconnect the hoses, turn the faucets back on, open and close the door, and push the START/STOP button firmly one more time.

You should be rewarded with the sound of water beginning to fill up your Maytag® Neptune® washer. If you aren't, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900.

Maytag Centennial: Not starting, maybe lid lock issue? How to install new magnetic lid latch? then is replacing lid lock next or could it be something entirely different? Help, please, and THANK YOU! I have a Maytag Centennial washer MVWC450XW3 that quit working last week. In hindsight, I could see that there had been a history of "stuff" going on with the washer, all around the lid lock;i.e. - last time it worked I had to select a couple of different cycles before it finally started. SO Far, I have tried to get the diagnostic codes but failed a bit at that. I THINK that I was getting an F5E1 error. I was however at least able to access the diagnostic menu, and notice TWO things: No matter what, the Lid Locked LED never comes on, ever. Next thing I notice is when I do a short cycle diagnostically, it never agitates or spins. It fills various temp water, does not agitate, then it seems to suck the water back out. IN the end, I ordered just the magnetic part of the lid lock (the part that is actually on the lid) because I could see mine was rusted all the way away, but am not too sure how to put it on. Therefore I just put it in the slot where it would go if I had installed it. Incidentally II asked my ma if she had noticed anything going on with the washer and she said No at first but then with prompting (she's 81) allowed that she had indeed noticed something wrong with the lid shutting so she had cleaned out that "little hole"{ very well and oiled it to make sure it was working. So again my two main questions are: How to install the lid latch, do I need to take out all of the screws around the glass? and Should I next move on to buying a lid lock part or could it be something entirely different?
