I have a front load washer that starts to fill when set to wash but stops after it fills and will not cycle to the next phase of the wash. I can put it manually on spin and it will spin out the water but I cannot get it to cycle. I have changed the timer unit. The motherboard was replaced last year (third time for this circuit). What recommendations can you give me?
Maytag neptunes are the worst appliances to get. i worked for maytag and the neptunes are over price and break very easy. plus the cost of repairs are very expensive. i would recomend getting a new washer. youve put enough money into this one and getting it fixed is going to be expensive. especially when the fix is only temporary. something else is going to leak or break.

Hello there: If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advanceWhen the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:It's
the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins
agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin
cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It
may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with
water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse
water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter
You need to check and replace water fill valve (blue) located on the back where hot water and cold water hoses connected to the washer. It may get stuck due to corrosion in pipe. Part may cost around 35 to 45 dollars. Next item needs to check is Flowmeter (white) connect after water fill valve. When get dirty water cannot get into washer. The water pressure valve is the last thing to check and replace if the problem is not fixed.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
To javed_iqb904, does the drum actually fill or does it seem like that water is draining out as it's filling?
To neonllama19, if it fills with the tap on and the machine off, it sounds like a defective water valve. If it never stopped filling it sounds like a defective pressure switch or hose to the pressure switch is loose or diconnected.
POWERUP, YOUR WASHER COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR THE COLD WATER VALVE. AT THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE, THE MOTOR WILL SPIN OUT THE WATER, BUT ONLY IF THE LID SWITCH IS ACTUATED. IF THE SWITCH IS BAD, IT WILL NOT SPIN OUT THE WATER AND THE TIMER WILL NOT ADVANCE FROM THAT POINT.
IF THE WASHER SPINS, THE NEXT STEP IS TO FILL WITH WATER FOR THE RINSE CYCLE. MOST WASHERS USE COLD WATER FOR RINSES. IF THE COLD WATER VALVE IS RESTRICTED OR FAULTY, THE WASHER WON'T FILL. IF THE WASHER WON'T FILL, THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH WON'T ACTIVATE AND THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE TO THE NEXT STEP.
