Maytag Front Load Washer - SD error

I have a Maytag Neptune Washer, Model MAH6700A. It has been stopping mid-cycle with an "SD" error - on all wash cycles within the "Rotary Selector". Sometimes the clothes do continue to tumble and may spin, however, most of the time they are still dripping wet.
I can use the "Rinse & Spin" or "Spin Only" cycle without any problem and it will finish these cycles (they are not part of the Rotary Selector Dial). The manual nor the Maytag Customer Service Line has information on this problem. It occasionally will flash a "D5" error as well which is also not listed in the manual. I timed some of the loads and it appears to be happening about 15-20 minutes into the cycle.

Hi there,

it appears that you have a door switch problem. the door latches on these machines are equiped with a mechanical switch and if this switch disengages in any way, the machine thinks that the door is open, even if it's not.

the code that you see is actually a "dS", which stands for door switch.

check the door latch, which is where the door switch is located.

May tag Neptune showing codes

Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.

The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.

The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.

The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.

The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.

The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.

The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

The "nF" code appears when the washing machine has tried to fill with water and has failed. Verify that the inlet hoses aren't kinked and that the faucets are fully open.

The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

Other Codes
* If your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays any codes that are not listed above, contact Maytag Neptune Priority One Service for assistance. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

Maytag Neptune MAH6700A Front Load Washer When it spins it makes a whining sound.

It should be making a whirling sound as it speeds up in the spin cycle. But if it getting to the point where it is so loud that you can't have a normal conversation, then the problem is that the bearings are gone and need to be replaced. It is an expensive repair since the mfg does not sell you just the bearings and you must buy a new rear tub. Get a few estimates if this is the case before deciding to repair or replace.

Stops mid-cycle, does not drain, displays nd error code?

That code is telling you that the unit is draining to slow. After 15 minutes it is not below the low water level and will not spin out. The best repair for this is to replaced the pump on your unit.
