Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer

1 Answer

Suds Error I have had a maytag neptune front end loader for 3 yrs. paid 1000.00 for it. It started with a suds error about a year ago and my husband found where it was stopped up. He fixed that and it worked for about 6 months. Now it has gotten so bad it takes 2 hrs. to wash 1 load of clothes. It will not rinse and spin the clothes at all and if you use the rinse and spin cycle it still want. It does not get the soap out of clothes either. I am using the HE detergent and about a tablespoon full. Even if I don't wash big loads it still does this. I am sick of it and I need somebody to help me. I have even taken it to a repairman and he didn't know where to start! I am ready to take a hammer to it. This is my second maytag and I will never have another and I would not recommend this machine to anyone.

Ok lets check some stuff. I don't like preaching about drains but this is where I start. With these Maytags it is harder but you need to pull that hose out and make sure it doesn't rest in water. Two in the past when your best man cleaned the machine out did he find alot of lint? If so reduce the cycle by choosing less than normal soil. We need to remember Maytag has put a restrictor in there pumps because of overflows at the drain so we must check often on this item. Another item that is bugging me is your timer, have you noticed a loud buzzing sound during operation from the timer or does it seem the machine is not spinning the way it should? Maytags are known for a good spin, let me check on recalls, drop me a note if you find anything new.

    I too would never recommend a maytag to anyone. I've had the suds error and a 3 E error. It takes over 3 hours to wash a load of v
    Clothes. I paid thousands for this washing machine and dryer and no one knows what to do. Some have said replace the mother board whatever that is. I just know that this washer should never do this. I also just found out it was recalled! Model MAH8700WW. SERIAL 12020517GV. PLEASE HELP! I don't have the money to replace this thing!

How can you reset the suds error code message on a may tag Neptune washer?

Try running a load without adding anymore additional soap and see if you can get it to go through the cycle, you may have to try it several times. I would also suggest cutting the amount of soap down to help prevent this in the future.

It's showing the code "SudS" where the minutes

When washer detects suds then this error appears. NOTE: After 4 minutes the SUD error will be displayed, and then 4 minutes later the F02 error code will be displayed.
? Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
? Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running.
? Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
? If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

There are 3 small 9/32 hex head screws that hold the front panel on. Unscrew the 3 hex head screws (9/32 socket or nut driver size), now remove the front kick panel. Unscrew the white drain cap -WARNING-- lots of water will drain out when you loosen the white cap. Once all the water is out, remove and take out the filter trap.
Hope this helps... Please post back for more information

Suds error
Here is the service manual for your machine.
When you get the suds cleared out you must use H E soap and or less soap.
You may need to run 3 or 4 cycles with no clothes at all to clear out the existing suds.

SUDS error on Neptune washer

It means that there is too much soap in the machine most of the time. Give it time for the suds to go down then try to run it through again. Try using a little less soap later on. Front loaders need less soap than top loaders.

SUDS error code

I suggest you disconnect the tube from the water level control pressure switch and blow it out well. Then, if need be, disconnect the drain hose and make sure it is clean as well.

Error code SD

I work for an appliance company in the service department, and what this really means is that you could have a suds build up in your machine, or that you used too much soap on this particular cycle. If starting over does not work, you can buy a product called washer magic at almost any store and it will clean your machine out. Also, running vinegar through the machine will make any suds dissapate.
