Hi gbailey1947

if your washe is under 10 year the motor should be under warranty, as far as the mold the only thing you can do is get it replaced. or spend a few hours with a tooth brush and bleach . if you get it replace i strongly suggest that you take the light out and keep the door open thsi will prevent any more mold.

My Maytag washer will not complete a cycle. The code Lr is display on the front of the washer. I have pulled the plug and reset the breaker.


LR stands for locked rotor. The code is returned by the Motor Control Unit (an electronic module connected to the motor and to central control unit). The code is returned when no motion from motor rotor is detected. With many models LR may be due to a factory defect. Please call Maytag and check if any recall has been issued for error LR concerning your washer model. If recall has been issued you will get a kit comprising a new motor and wiring harness.

You can also try temporarily resetting the error by disconnecting power at circuit breaker (or unplugging power cord). If the error message is prompted again call Maytag.

Maytag neptune tl what is code Lr

LR is the error code for Locked Rotor.

This could be an issue with the Motor Controller or Control Board.

I have not seen Drive Motor cause this issue to date.

If you want to investigate further I would suggest getting the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.

Google this ""Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""

This is a sticky for the FAV6800A/FAV9800A washer DIY support. Go to the 5th post down in the Sticky and you will find a link for the Service Manual.

If you want to go further in troubleshooting and possibly a DIY fix just open a new thread in that DIY forum with Model number and Serial number. That info is found tag behind the console right back side as you face the machine console.

I had Maytag ship a new motor and motor control board for free and installed it myself in less than an hour. There is a ten year warranty on those parts. You just have to be very firm and insist you have warranty rights by law!

Wont complete the cycle reads Lr how do i unlock the door

maytag had many problems with this issue. "Lr" is a locked rotor in the motor. there is actually a motor control conversion kit maytag put out to fix this issue. And depending on the series number (first to numbers in the serial #) of your washer, there is a 10 year warranty for this kit. the kit is a new dc motor, motor control board, and harness. you should call maytag to see if you machine qualifies for this, the kits are expensive if you have to buy it. if you door wont unlock, and you need to get cloths out, open the lid for the detergent. look on the right side and the front inside where you put detergent in. you will see a green or red cord, that is the door lock release. if you pull on it, it will unlock the door, just dont pull to hard. good luck, shane

Lr code

sometime resistor are a bit under valued and can burn up. Dont worry about your door lock. remember Lr stands for locked rotor.????? check the winding on your motor and never over look the pump. Have a visual inside the pump for blockage look for any shorts on your washing machine. I was told they have a ten year warranty on the motor. I always test all the conponents on a w/machine before I test it. lookup this site to see if your maytag is still under warranty????
