Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater

1 Answer

Washing machine Maytag Neptune Front Loader Washer MAH4000AWW will not spin anymore. I checked the motor control board and machine control boards and they don't show any sign of damage. I also did the dianostic test on the paper that I found in the back of the washer, I did the drive system diagnostic test and it would not spin at all. Did the drive system phase loss test and it still wouldn't begin to spin. Next we did the drive system continuity test, and there was continuity between yellow/orange red/white, and blue/black and between the wires and the frame. I pulled the motor and it all looked very good. Can you help?

    i had the same problem with one that i bought and i ended up replacing the unbalance switch in it and now it spins great like it shouldk before it would act like it wanted to go and then stop and then repeat the same thing and then it would try to take off for about 10 sec or so and then die back down i replaced that switch and now it takes off like a champ.. only problem is that water is leaking out the front and i have some kind of noise coming from it that sounds to me like humming and its annoying and water leaking out the front on the floor not excessively but enough.. im assuming that would have something to do with the wax motor. I would try replacing that switch it is in between the drum and the casing of the washer on the right hand side. it was a 20 dollar part. just a suggestion i think these things arent worth it u fix it just to fix it again

I think that you have a faulty motor. Are there any visible cracks in the stator? The rotor position sensor could also be faulty.

Matag neptune front load washer MAH4000AWW tumbles but won't spin dry. I tried it with and without clothes in the wash.

Check if the "locked"or "door locked" light comes on. If it does not, you need to replace the wax motor in the door lock assembly and the machine control board, which is inside the control panel. The control board is expensive, so instead of buying the whole control board, if you're good in electronic repair and soldering, try checking ebay for the control board repair kit. Search for "MAYTAG NEPTUNE WASHER R11 Q6 REPAIR KIT". It has all instructions how to do the repair. Good luck!

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.

I have a Neptune front loader that now spins slow on the final spin. Pushing max extract doesn't help. I need help - -wet sheets

does the door lock? if the answer is no then you have a blown resister on your main control board R11 and the reason it blew is your wax motor on your door lock is binding up. you need a new control board and wax motor.

Strange growling sounds on rinse and spin cycle

I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.

See for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.
