Maytag neptune,shuts down within 10 seconds after start button is pushed

I have another problem(has been nothing but problems since day 1) with my maytag neptune washing machine. It was working O.K. for about a year since the last failue and yesterday when we went to push start button to beging wash cycle,water begins to fill and machine and light shut down within 5 -10 seconds. I have tried this multiple times on various different cycle settings around the dial and it does the same thing every time no matter where you put the dial. This thing is a peice of junk and has been since day 1 as I said,It was extremely expensive when we bought it but my wife in her infinate wisdom had to have it ! I suspect the module board behind the panal is most likley the problem however that is just a guess based on the fact it has been working o.k. for the last year,this problem just began out of knowhere yesterday ! Any Help ???? stevebo@cox.net I have the same problem with our Neptune that began yesterday. After starting the cycle, it begins to fill and then shuts down entirely. Help??

If it has worked for a year and your able to choose different cycles with the same result. It seems to functions with one common element failing. If the control unit cant detect how full the machine is with water it will shut down. Sounds like a water problem steming from your pressure switch. Not sure which model you have but usually it will sit on the water pump or under the console with a clear hose if under the console. If so a quick test of attaching an ohm meter set on continuity then blowing lightly to see if under pressure the switch reacts by closing if it doesnt then the switch is bad.

Washer will not shut off.


sounds like the final phase is not being registered on the timer or the computer chip may need to have a service tech diagnose but it isn't a complex problem just an annoying one, the final phase is a cool down cycle and also you may need to see if you have the settings for cotton clothes, the dryer will tumble them so as not to let them wrinkle. hope this helps

Washer doesn't stay running. filled with water, then shut down then filled some more and now stuck doing nothing. If push start button if runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. 10 years old.


For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service Center...trust me...I know.

My maytag neptune washer will come momentaraly


There is a door locking unit that should lock when you press go. This must have failed. It lives just under the lid in the middle at the front. It is thermal piston, when you press go it gets power and extends. When it hits a micro switch that tels the washer the door is shut and allows it to continue, else it shuts down. To get at it you have to take the front off, leave the door on.

I press the start button, it starts to fill then shuts off after a few seconds. If I go to drain cycle, I press the start button, it begins to drain the shuts off after a few seconds. No noises or...


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. This kit takes about an hour to install. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for step by step pictures on how to disassemble your Neptune.
