Maytag neptune washer MAH-1 start button turns off, does not spin

Start buttons lights up then turns off. If I hold button I can get water to come in and drain out but will not spin. Two months ago start button seemed to get stuck. When jiggled I got it to work.

Hi!

Is it pumping water? If not then pump is bad.
Is the door locking? If the door will not lock, the washer will not enter a spin mode. See if the lock light is lite on the console.

Check for continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch when the switch actuator button is pressed in. If there is no continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch, replace the Door Lock Switch Assembly.(Check for 120 vac across the Door Lock Wax Motor)

Please rate this solution and ask for further clarifications if needed.

Thanks
Rylee

    Did you checked for Door Lock Wax Motor





    Then Check for any Broken wires at one of the out off balance switches or a bad switch itself.

    If its fine then a fairly common trouble maker has been a burnt diode on the main control board. Generally diode R11 goes bad.



    Please look at the link for finding the faulty diode---

    (in above figure check the diode R11 above the blue cap.)

My maytag neptune front load washer will not spin this has happened before and I called service they held down some button where the start wash etc are on on top of the washer. It washed the load but when...


Check whether water is fully drained. Since the motor worked during wash motor is not faulty.

Check relay that poers the motor during spin mode. May be micro controller fault posiible.

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 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".
