Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

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?

Displays on maytag neptune washer and dryer won't come on after a power outage


It may have burnt the main controls out on circuit boards or this sounds silly but check your breakers, did you have a power surge before the outage?

My Kenmore H3T washer will not start. When a specified wash cycle is chosen Time of Cycle is displayed but the light for the cycle only flashes and washer will not start. No error code is displayed.MO


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.
If the washer won't start check to see if there is power at the electrical outlet which the washer is plugged into. Plug a lamp or radio into the outlet to check it. If the outlet is dead, check the circuit breakers or fuses for the home.
If the washer won't start the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer won't start the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
If the washer won't start the main control board might be defective. This is not common. Check other parts and causes first.
If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown, or the line fuse holder might be damaged and need to be replaced.
If the washer won't start the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.
If the washer won't start the line fuse might have blown.
If the washer won't start the timer might be defective. This part is often misdiagnosed, check other components before replacing this timer.
If the washer won't start, the user control and display board may be defective. Check for power to the washer first.

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.


Hi,

""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 service........you do not want to get a shock

Kenmore elite calypso wash motion top loader won t come on at all after power outage. checked breaker and outlet.


Unplug the unit and let it sit unplugged for 30 minutes. There is a power filter on the AC input line and sometimes power surges can cause it to need to bleed off the voltage from capacitors. There is a test procedure to see if the filter needs to be replaced but so far every time this has happened to our Calpyso, we pull the plug for a bit and the washer recovers.

There isn't enough space on this text box to post the removal & replacement procedure for the line filter, but you can find it at www.pcappliancerepair.com and look up the part # on the Sears Parts Direct site for your model # specifically.
