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.

See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

Good for you…. On your decision to repair or at least make a solid decision to repair or junk. Also hit may tag for replacement cost if you decide to junk the unit. 1st level svr rep offered 15% on an their line, ask to speak to a supervisor and demand better, they offered me 25%. I decided to repair if you have been following my postings.  To get you going you need the SM, I got this link form the applianceblog link listed below.

http://www.servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/16010061.pdf

See this link from a FAV6800A owner like us from another self help site, this person had this error code you can follow his action steps to repair.

I believe the motor is warranted for 5 yrs. So you may be able to get Maytag to step up to the plate for some of the cost if it's a failed motor.  So call the Maytag Customer Assistance number at the back of the manual if it’s a motor issue.  This link will take you to the Maytag doc location where you can get further inf. Just put in your model#

Good luck to you on your decision to repair and job search.  

Take care.

Looks like another motor/motor control panel replacement. This machine has a faulty motor/motor control board, it has been re-engineered with a replacement. Has yours been replaced? Have you found the tech sheet behind touch panel and placed machine in service mode to test? We had the same issue, worked sporadically, didn't drain, got LR code then eventually stopped working. Check your spin in service mode, if it doesn't spin properly you should find out here. It is a very simple repair in all actuality. Contact Maytag and they will sell you the parts for a discounted price, make sure that you buy directly from Maytag, also check your boot very carefully since that part will also fail and allow water to get into the bottom of the machine where you have electronics.

Maytag Neptune front loader, model # MAH5500BWW had a digital error code reading Lr. Will not agitate or spin out.


the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit boardat the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its controlboard at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or controlboard at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N12002039).
Hope that helps,
Thanks,
Lee

Lr code went into service mode but wont respond to commands model #fav6800aww


Tom,

The LR error code can be a tough one to troubleshoot but I'll see what if any help I can be.

The LR code stands for Locked Rotor.
If you Power Cycle the 120VAC to the machine will the error code clear?
What cycle was the machine in when you took the error code wash, spin?
If you remove the front panel and with the 120VAC power cord removed from the service outlet can you rotate the Clutch Pulley CCW (Spin direction) or CW (wash/agitate) direction.
Sounds like you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual.
Let’s see if the drive system is free and not locked up…………Rich

Our maytag neptune top load washer is flashing a Lr code. Is there anything we can do without calling a service?


Lr = Locked Rotor. This could be a Motor Controller failure, a Control Board Failure or a Motor failure. I would start by pulling off the front cover and see if you can rotate the Clutch Pulley CW the wash/agitate direction of the Clutch Pulley and CCW the Spin direction of the Clutch Pulley to make sure there is no binding in the drive system. Follow safety procedures in the Service manual remove power to the washer before you do this.

This could be a difficult issue to troubleshoot with out a known good Control Board and Motor Controller…..Rich

See this post for troubleshooting the Lr error code. . http://www.fixya.com/support/t2419091-maytag_neptune_top_load_fav6800aww_tub

Lr is locked rotor. My first thought was that this could be a Motor Controller issue. This owner replaced tried that and it did not resolve the issue. He then replaced the main Control Board and that fixed his machine. Without known good parts (Control Board Motor Controller) this might be difficult for a DIY fix.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

If you are going to try to DIY the repair I will see if I can help……Rich

My neptune TL displays the code LR.


LR usually means that the the signal from the board is not getting to the motor either because of a bad connection at either the motor or the board or the motor itself is no good. Need to check the connections first.

lr is a code for a locked rotor assy, on the motor itself, depending on age of machine you might have warr on the motor(part anyway) check your user guide and warr info. probably gonna need to install a "neptune repair kit" which includes new motor and new motor controller

The code LR stands for locked rotor you will need a new motor and motor control kit pretty expensive and only covered under you warrenty for a year!

Wont work, flashes LR


rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos
