Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Lock light doesn't go on, won't fill, metal rubbing sound

I started a load and it was working fine, went back later and it had not even gone through a spin cycle. I put it on several different settings and it will drain, but does not spin. The lock light does not go on and I understand that that would keep it from spinning, but what is keeping it from filling again? As I was listening to the machine at start up, it sounds kind of like metal rubbing against metal. I am not positive though. What do I do?

Thins sounds like a bad control board and wax motor issue, comon for this machine prbably about $300 for you to repair ,closer to $500 for aservice co. however, you say oyou hear a metal on metal rubbing thisi a sign of a more serious problem of rear bearing NOt worth cost of repair.. one way to tell the rear bearing is to open the washer door and grab the inner basket, try to lift it up you should have no movement iff correct. ifyour able to lift teh inner tuban inch or so, independently of the machine, i would venture to say oyou need a rear bearing// i mean new machine!!!!

My ge front load washer fills then stops during cycle and does nothing else. It spins in the beginning then will not drain at the end


It sounds like the drain pump itself is damaged--the important clue was the humming noise. It could be bound up mechanically or the impeller could be damaged and just vibrating instead of spinning. The part number for the drain pump is WH23X10026. The fact that the pump was humming tells me that the 120v supply is being turned on by the main control board and that the wiring is good all the way to the pump. When I service customers, I try to save the pump if possible in clog cases. Most of the time, they aren't damaged from a simple clog. But, occasionally, the impeller cracks, or the nylon blade gets loose on the shaft, or the motor windings have defects from heat, etc.

My GE HE top load washer quit draining & spinning. I*t went through a wash cycle just fine. It drained & spun for that, but at the end of the rinse cycle it wouldn't. I even tried to put it on


WE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. ONLY OURS WOULDN'T WORK ON THE "WHITES" CYCLE BUT WOULD WORK ON THE OTHERS. BUT IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY WOULD ALL GO & THE REPAIRS WOULD BE $$$. YOU WILL EITHER NEED A REPAIRMAN & YOU'RE LOOKING AT A MINIMUM OF $200........IF YOU'RE LUCKY. DO YOURSELF A FAVOR & GET THE G.E. MODEL #GTWN2800DWW AT HOME DEPOT. LOOK AT IT IN THE STORE BUT BUY IT ON LINE (AS THERE MAY BE A $50 DISCOUNT). THIS WASHER IS WHAT YOU WANT. YOU WON'T BE SORRY.

Washer will not spin agitated slow GE WJRR4170G1WW


Dawn, sounds like your lid switch may have gone bad. Just a guess. There is a place called repair clinic that has some videos of how things work. Check that out and see what you think. You may need to repost your problem if that doesn'rt help you any.

Whirlpool washer Mod# TWAS750PQO, Ser# CR3520005


is it possible that the washer was overloaded? if so the agitator has little plastic "gears" that move the agitator one way only, they could have made the sound. 
you can also check under the washer to see if anything (like a coat-hanger or something) is interfering with moving parts of the washer
