MLE2000 front load washer

I have the Maytag Neptune stacked front load washer and dryer. This unit is 8 years old. The washing machine keeps turning itself off once a cycle has started and I have to restart it. Have restarted it 4 times until the load is done. It does it on all cycles. Sometimes the lock light goes out and the water does not drain out of the clorox dispenser. Thanks.

    I have the same problem.  My unit is 7 years old.  I bought and replaced the Wax motor part # 12002535 but the problem is the same.  I was thinking of replacing the control board located on the top of the machine but it cost about $200.  Not sure if I want to try to replacing part after part without any proper diagnosis.

    I have the same unit (about 4 years old)--was told to replace the timer for about $175--did that but it did not solve the problem

Hi..I had the same problem yesterday...the maching would start when I pushed the button and then stop..I had to push the button again to get it going..My stacked set is around 8 years old.

Here's what we did..moved the washer away from the water source and unscrewed the water intake lines..there is a little screen there...took the screen out of both hot and cold lines..one screen has some debris in it..the other was almost completely blocked..we are on a well and sometimes dirt..etc..gets in the lines..

Today no problems doing the laundry..its working like new..

Door lock suddenly does not function when depressing the start/stop button on my Neptune Super Stack SL3 washer-dryer. The locked light is on however. The result is that the washer will not spin or drain.


If you take off the face plate where the knobs are at or if you know how to get to the wax motor you'll find a red solid cable and if you pull this cable it will release the mechanism which is keeping the wax motor engaged

Replace wax motor on neptune stacked w/d


I just recently purchased a used Maytag MLE2000AYW Stacked washer/dryer. The problem I am having is that the washer unit seems to turn on, the lights go on, fills with water, but doesn't not engage in the wash or spin cylce. There also seem to be a kind of intermittent spinning sound every five seconds or so when it is in the wash cylcle. Can anybody give me some ideas to troubleshoot for?

Water won't completely drain from tub. Door seal is very moldy.


Had a simular problem. In my unit the water was not visible in the drum but you could hear it when you turned the drum by hand.  The answer as told to me by the Maytag repair man:  The machine is designed to hold the water after the cycle is complete.  As he was replacing the boot seal he suggested to just leave the door open so the seal will dry out and not mold.  This has been working for the past several years.  No mold has appeared on the new boot seal.  

From another source I read that the water is left in the machine for balance.

Water left pooled inside maytag neptune front loading washer


Possible explanation: Some water is left in the hose going up to the drainpipe b/c the pump can only pump water with water, not air... so when the last bit of water is sucked up, it 'stays' just the other side of the pump exit nozzle and keeps the drain tubefilled. This water gradually leaks thru the drain exit valve and back into the machine, sometimes siphoning standing water in the drain trap with it.

The valve is either electric solenoid or plastic/rubber clapper in a cylinder. Your call whether to fix or not depending on ease and cost. Probably a $20.00 part.

Cheers!
