Neptune MAH55FLBWW front load washer LR code

The washer locked up and will not drain and is displaying an LR code...does this mean a new motor? If so do you know the part #?
Thanks

    I am having the same problem with my Neptune Washer - the problem is intermittent, and the repair guy talked to Maytag's technical department. They said it was either the wiring harness, the motor control board or the main circuit board. The original models had problems with the wiring, but none of my wires showed any melting or crimping, so there really is no solution. I can replace the washer for less than what the parts would cost to replace. Maytag suggests that I just ride it out until the washer completely quits working.

LR = Locked (main motor) Rotor and very likely a new motor will be needed but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

I had this happen to me twice when water leaked out of the machine. Got the Lr code and never figured out why it did this either time except this second time the city shut the water off in our neighborhood the night before for a few hours. Might have been air in the water line when the water got turned back on and somehow caused an overflow issue.
The fix was I took the back panel off and put a fan, or dehumidifier in my case, blowing into the back to dry the circuits and wire connections. Make sure you unplug the machine before doing this and plug it back in after its had time to dry and if your like me, everything worked afterwards. Hope this helps.

I have Maytag Neptune front loader washer. When


Hi.

Error LR means Locked Rotor.

Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.

Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.

Neptune - has Lr displayed where time remaining for wash usually displays. Doesn't finish.


Hello there
The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, though not always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on the Motor Control Board.

Blown Fuse on a Maytag Neptune Washer Motor Control Board (click to enlarge) Either way, it means just one thang: a new motor and motor control board kit are in your future.

Lr code on display


it is a problem with the motor .this is confirmed.

Issue
Washer stops in mid-cycle and/or flashes a code.
Warranty Standard product manufacturing warranty applies.
Action The motor drive system experienced a momentary loss of neutral feed from the power cord to the
Motor Control Board. The neutral line for the Motor Control Board passes across the water valve
solenoids. Neutral to the motor drive system can be momentarily lost If there is poor crimping of any
of the wire terminals in this circuit. This situation could result in a misdiagnosis and unnecessary
replacement of the Motor or Motor Controller Board.
Current Neptune front load washers will indicate a false locked rotor signal to the Machine Control
Board. Washers with a LED display will flash code “LR” in the display. LCD washers will display
“Locked Rotor.” The earlier built front loaders will not display a code, but simply shut down in midcycle
or will not start.
Pull each terminal of the white wire harness connected to each water valve solenoid and verify the
wire is properly stripped and crimped to the metal terminal connector of the wire harness. Make sure
the wires fit snug on the terminals of the water valve solenoids.
A product improvement has been made to the following models. The neutral wire is routed across
the pump only, and now by passes the water valve solenoids.

My neptune TL displays the code LR.


LR usually means that the the signal from the board is not getting to the motor either because of a bad connection at either the motor or the board or the motor itself is no good. Need to check the connections first.

Neptune Washer


lr is a code for a locked rotor assy, on the motor itself, depending on age of machine you might have warr on the motor(part anyway) check your user guide and warr info. probably gonna need to install a "neptune repair kit" which includes new motor and new motor controller

Wont work, flashes LR


rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos
