Maytag Neptune Max Extract Quit Working

Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWW - new fall of 1998. Max Extract feature is no longer working. I've removed the front - belt is fine - everything looks normal. With the door off, holding the door switch, and running the "spin" cycle (either one) - the drum rotates stops reverses direction, pauses for about a minute and then repeats. This action is the same either with or without the 'Max Extract' button depressed. Water pump is running - eveything else seems normal. Is there a suspect position on the control board? - are there wires below that would allow me to test whther the switch is making the circuit it should? Any advice would be helpful.

More information about the problem is needed...there are two levels of spinning..."regular" and "Max Extract" The Max setting spins the tub much faster. If you are having trouble with really wet clothes being left in the washer...haven't really been spun at all...this might have a couple of solutions. First, check the "out of balance" switch (a little plastic square with two green wires attached) located at the base of the tub on the front on my stacked unit. Because of the vibration in the tub, the wires on mine have broken twice.right at the switch. The other possibility is the main circuit board. Check out the internet for solutions/replacements.
My washer's Max setting is not working...and I don't know the reason for this...any help? Thanks...

Neptune front loader. doorlock light quit working. wont spin.


You will need to change the machine control board and door lock wax motor.
MAH3000AWW PART # 'S 22002988 AND 12002535
MAH4000AWW PART# 'S 22002989 AND 12002535
If yo look at your control board in the control panel you will find R11 burned.

Max extract is a higher rpm spin out (should be about 1000 rpm on the mah5500 model) and it also spins for a longer duration. This option is a great one to use on most loads as it will shorten your dry times even further, saving you money!

My maytag neptune MAH3000aww washing won't go into


most common issue with these is the door lock assy. You need to remove the control panel and check the R11 resistor on the board most likely it will be burnt. This was a common issue a few years back. If the R11 resistor is burnt you need to replace the door lock AND control board or your problem will occur again.

Hope this helps _MJ_

What does the max extract feature do


If the washer is removing all of the water from the washer during the spin cycle it is likely working properly. Not an expert but I believe max extract causes the washer to spin for a slightly longer period of time in order to remove more water from the clothes. We use it regularly because our clothes come out to wet otherwise.

What will the Max Extract button do?


The max extract button will do an extra spin to get any & excess water out of the clothes. It is a good thing to keep on to help cut down on drying time. If you find standing water in the washer, it is possible the hose is NOT in the correct position.

Won't extract water/Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWW


To be 100 % sure ,do this ,pull the whole face panel forward (remove the 3 screws on top face panel and may have 2 more in the back of the face panel)Once youve pulled the panel forward you will see your control board facing you.Look closely at the circuit board and look for a burnt circuit (CALLED R-11) .iF YOU SEE IT BURNT ,REPLACE THE WHOLE BOARD. I HAVE A COUPLE OF BOARDS AVAILABLE AND WAX MOTORS BUT I'LL NEED THE SERIAL NUMBER FIRST. Either way the board is easy to install the wax motor is a little more difficult.
