Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The door will not open.

The cycle is complete but the door won't open. I tried the start then stop but the front panel is asking for the door to be opened before it will start again.

    Same here. It sounds like a solenoid is clicking, but the door is still locked.

This is usally a door lock problem, or control board(you can pull bottom panel off and reach up by door lock and pull on a little plastic ring to release the door, make sure there is no water that can pour out)

You're start/pause button should pause the cycle, cancell should completely cancell. After pressing the Start/Pause within a cycle, the door lock may require time to unlock as indicated by the lock light on the panel.

Frigidaire dishwasher model #FDBB945DCO will not work power is on but control panel is dead


Hi Janis Angileri - The issue may lie with the door latch; a door switch is used to start and stop your dishwasher. It's a safety feature that won't allow water to flow with the door open. With a faulty door switch, there is a chance your dishwasher won't start at all. Dishwasher door switches are about an inch long. They are usually black but can be red. There are metal prongs on the body of the switch called terminals. Some door switches have two terminals and some have three. If your door switch is OK, check the timer assembly. This controls when and how long power is sent to other controls on your dishwasher. If these controls don't receive power, they won't work. The timer assembly contains a motor. Check this motor as well. It is often cheaper just to replace the timer motor rather than the complete assembly. My last suggestion is to check the cycle selector switches. These switches indicate cycles for washing, drying, and setting the temperature of the water. If one of your switches is the problem your dishwasher may not start. Dishwasher cycle selector switches tell the timer which cycle to run by opening and closing electrical circuits. Most selector switches are six to eight inches long. They are usually black and have terminals. By testing each one of these parts with an ohmmeter you should be able to determine why your dishwasher is not working. It is possible for other parts to fail but these are the most common parts to check. If any proves to be ineffective, I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

It may be the door interlock that is faulty. This is the cheaper solution however it maybe the the electonic board. In any case it needs the attention of a bosch Technician. Cross your fingers its the door interlock.

Jennair dishwasher timer stops halfway thru wash cycle.


Try using a cycle that doesn't boost the heat. Usually a quick or china/delicate cycle. Any cycle that heats the water pauses the timer until it is done. Some machines even select this with heated dry. The sensor that controls this can go bad and stop the timer completely. If it operates for the complete cycle , look for the sensor and replace it. There is usually a wiring diagram somewhere in the machine sometimes in an envelope inside the door, control panel or behind the front bottom panel

STOPS RUNNING IN MID-CYCLE


Try placing something like a chair with books or heavy objects on it in front of the door. Tip it with objects under the front legs and place objects on its seat until the pressure closes the door and the dishwasher starts. Put additional objects on the seat to insure vibration doesn't make the door pop open. If the cycle completes, the problem is probably the door switch. If not, the problem may be with the timer switch. If it's the timer switch the dishwasher will probably stop at the same position each time.
