Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Spin cycle does not engage

When the normal washing cycle is engaged, the spin cycle starts but stops suddenly as the barrel begins to accelerate. Error message to contact service center. Attempted a spin cycle on it's own with a few tshirts boarded and I get the same problem.

    Hi Thank you for your prompt reply,
    Sorry about missing details. I was under impression the Web page had categorized this message. Maytag Neptune, MAH 7500. Front loading nightmare !
    The machine is well levelled (I used a carpentar level to measure) and stable on the floor, there is no freeplay. I have cleaned the pump and all tubings to ensure draining was operating properly. Indeed draining functions properly.

Why won't my washer start a cycle? Start button LED just flashes. All other lights are steady. Door lock sounds like it engaged, but nothing happens.


There should be a way to enter the washing machine into service mode to view an error code. Check your user manual and then you should have your answer!

Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

All cycles are working except the spin cycle. I have visually inspected the wiring connections and motor and dont see any obvious issues. There are no error codes and the LED lights seem to be functioning...


Because of the high spin speeds of front load washers, the doors are equipped with a latch and lock mechanism to prevent the door from being opened during the washers operation. These locks will often be actuated by a solenoid or wax motor to ensure they remain latched during the wash cycle. This model uses a two stage lock that latches the door when the load starts, and then when it is time to spin, the second lock engages to ensure the door is properly secured prior to beginning the spin. When this second lock engages, it also closes a set of switch contacts (the auxiliary door switch) telling the control board the door is closed and locked. If for some reason this switch is not closed, the washer will tumble during what would normally be the spin cycle until the entire cycle is complete.

WASHER WILL WASH ON ALL CYCLES, BUT WILL NOT DRAIN OR SPIN ON EITHER CYCLE


If the timer advances normally thru the spin and drain steps of the cycle you selected, than the problem that would cause neither spinning or draining, is the wash motor is not reversing. The motors is a two direction motor. It spins clockwise for normal agitation, but counterclockwise to engage the wash drum clutch and operate the drain pump. I would ask you to check for motor sounds at all during the spin and drain cycles. The pump reversing in the spin or drain cycles can be a function of the machine's lid safety switch, or if not the motor switch or timer contacts. The lid switch is first thing to check here, for sure! If the machine seems to stop running when it comes time to drain or spin, the lid switch is your best bet!

Hope this helps.

can you get it to start by moving the timer one more click past the beginning of the cycle? Sometimes that is all that is wrong. Other than that, it's more than likely the timer has fused some of the points together and you will need a new timer in that case

Do you hear the motor activate during the expected spin cycle? If yes, then there might be a gearbox or clutch assembly issue. If not, it might be as simple as the safety switch not being engaged as the rest of the cycles might operate properly even if the safety switch is not engaged.

If the washer totally shuts down when the spin cycle begins, look at the safety switch circuit.
