Maytag Neptune front load has Lr on Time display

Maytag Neptune front load Washer has Lr on Time display. It is not finishing the load of clothes, but not sure where it is stopping. Right now I have some wet slightly soapy towels in there if that is any clue. I restarted after several attempts, but stopped at Lr again. Seems like I just had the door latch control replaced about a year ago. I read on this site that a top load needs to have some connections checked. Is that the same with a front load? If so is it something I can do or should I call the lonely Maytag repair person?

    I'm having the same problem!!!! I had two thin blankets in the wash. I tried doing the SPIN cycle a second time, but that didn't work. I noticed the time went from 9 to 2 minutes. My daughter tried a load of clothes last night which didn't ring out. When she removed them from the washer, we noticed water laying in the washer!!! HELP!!!

    It wont finish a load! sometimes the door wont unlock and sometimes its ok. but the top of the laundry is dry and the bottom is soaked. It keeps stopping and flashing an Lr. but I don't know what this is suppose to tell me. The power here has been going out the last three days 3 to 4 times a day just a few seconds or minutes at the most I was wondering if it was related do I need to call a repair man? Or is it something my husband could do? please resond soon i hate to let laundry build up and I've got six children so it will happen sooner than later! Thankyou

Washer wont finish cycle and display reads "LR"

Hello todd.... This is a common problem with the neptune. It means that the machine needs a new motor and a new motor control board kit. If you are under warranty do a repair. If not, get an estimate before you go ahead and repair it. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have Maytag Neptune front loader washer. When


Error LR means Locked Rotor.

Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.

Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.

Neptune - has Lr displayed where time remaining for wash usually displays. Doesn't finish.

Hello there
The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, though not always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on the Motor Control Board.

Blown Fuse on a Maytag Neptune Washer Motor Control Board (click to enlarge) Either way, it means just one thang: a new motor and motor control board kit are in your future.
