Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer runs when timer dial turned though ON button not pushed

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWW washer. It will cycle through and perform as normal (On light; door locked indicator light will click off and cycle end will chime when cycle complete) except that when you load clothes into the washer for the first load or any addditional loads, close the door, and turn the timer dial, the washer will begin its cycle even if the on/off button is not pushed. It will fill and go through cycles until it gets to the spin cycle. The pump motor will then drain the unit but the spin will not start until the on/off button is pushed ON. Checked connections--none loose. Any ideas?

Problem solved by ourselves! It was NOT in the circuit board (brain) of the machine. It was NOT in the door locking assembly as others would lead us to believe. It WAS the on/off switch on the control panel--part number 22002560 - a $22.00 problem fix.

Maytag neptune mah3000aww washer. It cycles then sits at the end of spin, does not go off. then the door will not unlock. I turn to off, push off button. it is anyones guess if it opens


Possible that the door lock is not actuated to open after the end of the cycle and could be jammed. try using a degreasing spray like WD 40 and if there is any issue with the lock.

Hello, The earlier Maytag Neptune front loaders have a balance ring on the inner tub that has liquid in it and that causes the sloshing sound when you turn the tub by hand. That is normal.

I noticed that you have a MAH3000... Have you replaced your door latch wax motor yet? If not, it will fail and damage your control board located behind the timer. See NeptuneHelpSong for a video that explains the failure.

I hope this helps...

Hi. your problem is actually a rather complicated one.

Timer and selector switches The timer switch is usually the largest dial on the main control panel. It can be either a mechanical device much like a simple clock, or completely electronic with just a digital readout.

The timer runs the washing machine in a pre-determined pattern. It provides the electricity to all of the washing machine components at the correct time and for the correct length of time.

The Start switch is usually part of the timer knob. When you set the timer to the proper cycle, you either pull or push the timer knob to start the cycle.

The selector switches or knobs vary from machine to machine. Most washing machines have one or several switches or knobs on the control panel besides the Timer/Start switch. These let you adjust certain settings; for example, the water temperature, spin speed, timer cycle, and so on. Normally, the washing machine completes the cycle selected on the timer, regardless of how you set these switches and knobs.

Maytag neptune MLG2000AWW does not turn off at end of spin cycle


d sounds as if your having a timer issue here. not recognizing the end of cycle and entering a new one ( bad timer).. as far as time of unlocking this is normal, theres a wax motor holding the door shut for i believe 3 min's.. and the water sloshing sounds is also normal they use a "water filled" balance ring around the perimeter of tub to help with the overall balance of machine

Maytag Neptune washer MAH3000AWW seems to backfill after cycle


It could be a leaking water valve. The MAH3000 has two flavors, the earlier model had (2) extra wax motors in the soap dispenser for the bleach and softener controls and the newer ones have the bleach and softener valves integrated into the water valve assembly.

Contact me via the www.neptunehelp.com site and let me know which serial number you have and I can detemrine which water valve you will need.

See www.neptunehelpsong.com for a funny new song dedicated to Maytag Neptune owners explaining the door latch wax motor issue.
