Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Pre select cycle times are getting longer

Quich wash was 27 minutes now 42 minutes Standard cycle cold-cold was 47 minutes now 80 minutes. Example: When you push quick wash it now reads on the readout reads 42. Can the timer be going bad? Is the timer mechanical or digital? Is the timger getting longer because the machine is monotering something and remembering how long it took last time? Any Ideas? Thanks Roger

Re: Pre select cycle times are getting longer

Try cleaning the hose screens and the screens in the water valve. tuen off the water supply and remove the hoses from the back of the machine as well as the water supply. check for sediment or other debris and replace the screens as needed and reconnect.

Washing times are getting longer

It might be easy. The hoses have screen filters at the end where they connect to the water supply. I mostly use COLD only so the cold one gets really clogged quickly. I bought a few at the HW store and I replace them about annually and the time drops like ten minutes or more. However, this year, after 12 years (I have an older model) it stopped helping. I ordered a new solenoid. The time plummeted from 80 minutes to 35. It was amazing.

Why does it take so long to wash cloths I have done everything 1 hour and half still washing

Hi Robin,

Many washers have different wash settings and rinses in addition to temperature options and water levels (or load size). The temperatures wont affect the wash times (but hot and warm water washes will cost you more for the expense of making the hot water), so choose whichever you think you need. The water level makes a small impact each time it needs to be filled (wash, rinse, etc.). A warm wash will fill in half the time as either a cold or hot wash - as both hot and cold water are combined to make a "warm" water cycle.

A "Normal" or "Regular" wash without a pre-soak or pre-wash cycle and a single rinse is usually sufficient for *most* laundry needs - especially if you're using dryer sheets. Otherwise, you may find fabric softener is not rinsed out enough to your liking (or not - it's a personal choice).

If your machine offers a "Max Extract" or longer spin setting - it is worth running it to reduce the amount of time they're in the expensive-to-use dryer.

If you need more help - provide your washer brand and model.

Wash cycles are increasing in time required to complete

cold water valve in back could be plugged causing longer fill times.
