Water level buttons keep cycle through continuously and the estimated time changes with the soil level.
This washing machine is driving me crazy! I have been unable to use it because I am afraid the cycle will never end...
It beeps for no apparent reason, the water level buttons keep cycle through continuously and the estimated time changes with the soil level.
I don't see the estimated time changing, so I am afraid to put an clothes in there for fear they will be stuck wet and soapy. The first time I noticed this I stopped it and did the spin & rince.... that doesn't clean them, though.

Press the cancel button all indicator lights/LED should be off

Press "Soil Level" button and hold for 3 seconds
Release "Soil Level" button wait for 3 seconds
Press "Soil Level" button and hold until "88" lights up on the display and all indicator lights turn on
Watch the display flash any error codes will be displayed. e.g. "81" , "F", etc
Take a note of the numbers and letters displayed, press the "Soil Button" and the next set of codes will be shown. Press the soil button a few times noting down all the codes until "88" is displayed.
If the "Soil Button" doesn't work try another button using the same procedure above exluding any of the buttons mentioned above.
Problem is too much soap. Wrong soap. Press and hold: SPIN SPEED & SOIL LEVEL buttons--then press POWER button.
Wait for door to lock.
Press the START button (6) times--this will fill the tub with hot water to the maximum setting when it stops filling.
Press the START button two more times--this will enable the tub to tumble.
After 3 hours--turn "off" the washer.
Turn the washer back "on".
Select the shortest wash cycle (usually "quick wash") and press "START". This will rinse out the tub.
So I understand that you are unable to operate the water temperatures and soil levels on your infinity washer, while on the normal cycle.
I suggest to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle.
If you are unable to change the water temperature and soil level settings, while in the normal cycle, I suggest to contact your local authorized technician. They will be be able to come out and diagnose the washer and see why you are unable to change the settings.
CleanSensor mode, indicated by a "Sensing" LED on the control panel, extends the cleaning cycle based on the level of soiling and the temperature of the incoming water. The time of the cycle shown on the LCD display increases or decreases to illustrate the change in cycle duration. The time shown on on the LCD display may increase if the dishwasher has to heat the incoming water to a suitable temperature. Your home's water boiler might be set too low if the water coming from the hot tap is lukewarm or cool. .
Answer to your question "Is there any way to set them different?" Short answer is no. The Maytag Neptune like many other washers that display a time of cycle first start with an estimated time this relays a lot on the last cycle ran. But, more importantly it also takes into consideration other washing options. For example, lets say that your quick wash cycle used to only display 35 min. now if you select an extra rinse option the time will increase from that 35 min. to a higher amount of time. This is due to the longer time it takes to go through a second rinse cycle. The MAH5500 if I'm not mistaken also has a heater in it so there are options such as sanitize which takes 120 degree hot incoming water (suggested temp. for hot water heaters) and heats it to approx. 165 degrees. And as you can imagine this takes a washer some time to do this (increasing wash time). If you would like to lower washing time check the washing options and remove any that are not needed at that time; pay close attention to extra rinse cycles and the soil levels that are selected. Hope this helps. Cheers.
Most machines have a soil level selection (light / normal / heavy) and if you select light soil level the wash time is reduced. Also, some machines have a " Quick Cycle " which cuts a lot of time off, which should only be used with lightly soiled clothing. Additionally, make sure you have adequate water pressure, and that the inlet screens are clear so that the cycle is not delayed essesivly due to slow water fill. Regardless of all these, the higher spin speeds of a front loading machine (those have the longest wash times, due to the low water use and the tumbling wash action used vs an agitator in a top load machine) will result in reduced dryer run time, thus helping to reduce the overall time a load takes to wash and dry. (although still longer than most top loading sets) Generally, the energy savings and larger load sizes will outweigh the extra time the machines take.
unplug the machine. take the computer broad out of the control switches. Clean the resadue off both sides of the broad, with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide and a q-tip. Dry it off !!!!! put back to getheir and turn it on. that should fix it!
The water level is very low on front load machines. (Below the bottom of the door) While the washer is running, push and hold the "spin speed" and "soil level" buttons at the time. Display should be between 230 and 255.(normal) If you do this while the machine is filling, you will see the numbers change. This machine only uses about 12 gallons of water for an entire cycle, vs. about 45 for some top loading machines. THIS IS NORMAL ! The machine will adjust the amount of water based on the type and volume of clothes in your washer. On a large load, you will see wet clothes, but no water sloshing around. PS. Because the machine uses so little water, make sure you use only one tablespoon of HE detergent (and only one teaspoon of fabric softner if you use it). This is very important.

This model automatically detects the load size and optimizes the washing time however I do not believe the it should get stuck as you say... try this.. load the washer and then using the control knob.. select Normal.. then push the Quick cycle button on the right.. select the soil level button until it displays 31 minutes.. and run that.. if after you run a wash load it continues to display or get hung up on a specific number such as 7.. your control board may be defective.. If its warranteed.insist they replace it.. Hope that helps...
Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back
