Hello,

Usually, the LR or 'Locked Rotor' indicates a problem with the motor / motor control board or MBC. The MBC is located near the floor on the right side. See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos. The original MCB's had a high failure rate so Maytag redesigned the MCB and the motor. The motor conversion kit is part number 12002039, which includes the new motor, MCB, harness and takes about an hour to install. You can inspect the MCB for either a blown 10 amp fuse or if you see components that are burnt or discolored. If either of these is the case then you will need the motor conversion kit.

In addition, as your Neptune ages you might notice the spin cycle getting louder to where it will sound like a jet plane taking off. If this is the case then you can replace your bearings and seal kit. See www.neptunebearing.com. You can also rent a special Neptune bearing tool called the tony tool which includes the use of a DVD that shows you how to take apart Neptune, replace bearings and install the 12002022 seal kit. I hope this helps...

Maytag neptune washing machine. The error code is Lr. I know what that means, but it is 11 years old and am wondering if it is worth it to fix or just replace.


I would say yes, just remember that replacement washing machines are getting really expensive. First, get a couple of quotes on repairing your Maytag washing machine. Ok, what does Lr. mean?
Maybe I could save you some money, that is if you are mechanical inclinded. GB...stewbison.

Lr code


sometime resistor are a bit under valued and can burn up. Dont worry about your door lock. remember Lr stands for locked rotor.????? check the winding on your motor and never over look the pump. Have a visual inside the pump for blockage look for any shorts on your washing machine. I was told they have a ten year warranty on the motor. I always test all the conponents on a w/machine before I test it. lookup this site to see if your maytag is still under warranty???? maytag.com
