Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Won't Spin I have a maytag Neptune MAH 5500BWW - It will go completely through the entire cycle but won't spin. The only water left is the water in the clothes so it is draining properly. I had a repair guy come out and take a look - it worked just fine while he was here. He did check a few of the connections and it appears there may be a loose sensor for the latch assembly and he thinks it could be the cause and assumes it will eventually break. Does this seem logical and can I fix it myself? He said the whole assembly has to be replaced because the "box" has plastic welds at the bottom which prevent the ability to simply replace the latch sensor. If it's easy enough to fix what part should I order? Thanks.

This is joyce
Go to Maytag.com and put in your model # and download manuel and this will show you every part on your machine, then you can see if you can fix it or not, or just simply straight wire it. which is what a lot of people have done, I dont know if yours can be done this way. this is a rather newer unit. the assembly is not that exspensive if you do it yourself probl less than $100.00
hope this works

Maytag Neptune MAH-1 front load washer won't spin in some cycles I use often. it spins at the end of the cycle and in cycles I do not use often. it spins in the spin cycle when I run that cycle


sounds like the timer is not advancing is certain cycles? timers have contact points that can burn and seize up sticking close and not allowing the next cycle to move

MAYTAG NEPTUNE WON'T SPIN OR DRAIN


If it can't drain, it shouldn't spin. Pump blocked? Broken pump? Level sensor broken?

We just moved and the house came with a Maytag Neptune TL which won't spin if there are clothes in the cylinder. It will spin empty. Please help! Thanks.


Washer bangs around in spin cycle and throws a DC or UC unballance code with cloths in the wash basket is that correct?

If so it's a Clutch issue.

Maytag washer MAH 5500bww seems to run OK, but it does not pump out all the water(pumps out some) at the end of the cycles, churns remaining water during spin


Open the rear panel and remove the drain pump and clean it.
If there is nothing in the pump, check the drain motor for 18 ohms with a volt/ohm meter.
Not 18 ohms, replace the motor.

Maytag Neptune MAH-1 won't stop filling with water


A couple things may be going on here... you may not want to hear, but the Neptune has a had many "consumer related problems".

If your complaint is "will not stop filling with water" I would access your inlet water-valve (typically blue with 2 black battery looking solenoids; where your water-lines connect directly), test for continuity and replace as necessary. Sometimes inlet-water valves also go bad where the complaint is: "no water comes in at all".
