Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Maytag washer Mod. No. MAH3000AWW doesn't spin and remove water from clothes. I can see that the spin enable switch is defective as it has no lever showing to make contact with door. How do I get to that switch?

    My washer is quite noisy when it spins to rinse. Do you think I have a bad bearing?

    I have the MAH3000AWW and the same thing just happened to me.  I had a repair man come out that said it is probably the motor and circuit board.  If this is the case, is it worth fixing.  I bought it in early 1997.

    It won't go to full spin.  I had a repair man out that said it is probably the motor and circuit board.  Is it worth fixing if that is the case?  Does that sound reasonable?  I bought it in early 1997.  I have also always had the mold problem but didn't know it was something I should have complained about.

My maytag neptune mah3000aww spins slowly then reverses, then spins slowly. will not reach regular spinning speed. What is the problem?

it could be a balance problem. Most machines are programmed to abort fast spin if the drum is unbalanced. This can be caused by too much in there, or possible the contents have clumped together somehow. Try a spin cycle only with an empty machine and see if it reaches full spin

I have a maytag centennial washer MVWC400XWO it is 3 years old. The washer has stopped after the initial wash cycle leaving the cloths wet in a tub full of water. The washer will not go to the spin/drain...

For saftey the lid lock and lid down switch must be activated before the machine can advance to the next cycle. This has been the sequence for all top loaders..

Check the switch for the lid it is likely defective.

Make sure that the power is removed.

Simple repair by a qualified technician.

Hope this helps?

Model#mah3000aww won't go into spin cycle...checked belt and its rinses clothes but does not speed up when draining or go into high speed

take off the panel above the door,there is a micro switch next to the light put meter on switch and read it out,use a screw driver and push on switch while your checking for continuity,if that switch checks ok change out the enersia switch,take off just the right side of the boot and remove right side white cover and you can reach this switch

MAH3000AWW Does not spin fast enough on spin cycle Clothes are still full of water when done.

hi there ..sounds like your appliance is not spinning at all........(a) check if your drain pump is working correctly..(simply fill water and turn to drain)..(b) possiblity that the clutch drive mechanism is badly worn and needs replaced

No water

From what you've described, the problem may be a defective "door safety switch".

The purpose of the lid/door switch is to prevent injury when attempting to remove clothing articles when in the fast "spin-cycle" motion. I believe some models are now preventing the washer from working at all until repaired "mo money, mo faster!" ;)

I would access and test the lid/door switch for continuity; if defective, replace. Whats' the model # of your washer?

Maytag Neptune Max Extract Quit Working

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...
