Had power outage and now the Neptune Washer won't even light up. Washer was not in use at the time. Checked the breaker and outlet and all live and functioning. Is there a reset button that will reset the washer display and make the washer work again?

Maytag neptune drying center has no power mcg8000aww

Could be a bad thermal fuse, a bad drum belt, a door switch a loose wire , one of the computer boards or the user interphase. Time to call a qualified technician. This machine is a complex machine to disassemble and diagnose and if reassembled wrong could prove to be dangerous to operate.

Electric problem

Is it a FAV6800a or FAV9800a machine?

Have you checked the 120VAC outlet for power. Plug a desk lamp or other device into the washer outlet and make sure 120VAC is present. If not check the breaker/fuse load center for a tripped breaker or blown fuse if a old house......Rich

Maytag Neptune will not start.


""The circuit breaker is okay."" that is a good 1st check.

""I may have burnt out the wall outlet. "" Plug a 120VAC device to the washer outlet and see if it works. Why do you think you burnt out/damaged the outlet?

""Turned it off for a while and will try again later."" When you power up the washer do you have any Console indications that the machine is on. I will assume your machine is a FAV6800A TL. Do you have any LED display indicators turned on?

That is all I can help with for now. I'm a technical owner of the FAV6800A machine and will try t help if uour machine is a FAV6800A or FAV9800A.

Most important what is the model number of your machine. This forum fails big time to ask members for Model# and Serial # of their machine.

Here is the Service Manual for the FAV6800A/FAV9800A

Washer will not restart

There is a main control board on top which may need to be replaced,
if you remove the back top panel there is a tech sheet with a lot of information tucked in there, Suggest you plug something else into outlet to make sure outlet has power, and breaker is still ok,
good luck

My Neptune Top Load fills the water, the motor doesn't start.

If i understand correctly you are stating the breaker shut down which means the house breaker for the outlet power kicked out. You might try plugging something else into the outlet to see if it also kicks out, say a vacuum cleaner of a drill.

You need a amp clamp to test for something shorted or grounded (or ohm out windings) which requires trained do not want to get a shock

We had an power outage and lost power for a few hours everything came back on but the microwave. I checked the outlet and checked the fuse still nothing. Is there anything that can be fixed?

Hello if you have no power at the outlet, you may have saved your microwave. If the outlet is dead go to your house electrical panel and reset the breaker or replace the fuse. if the outlet is live and the microwave still won't power on you will have to choose between repair and replacement. Definitely get an estimate before agreeing to a repair as microwaves are very inexpensive today compared to even a couple of years ago.
