Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Model: MAH4000AWW front load. Washing machine, stops on its own. Took machine apart and cleaned and lubed, drum bearing and motor bears. Re-assembled and drum turns smoothly and easily. Jumpered the door switch and watched it run (no water connected) and drum turns with very jerky motion. Motor or control board is bad, but how do you determine which? Remember, the drum turns very easily with no rough spots. Internal inspection of the motor showed no signs of problems. However, motor encoder signal output was not checked.
Tips for a great answer:
It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.
