Many of the (early) Maytag Neptune washers had more than their share of problems. So much so, a class action suit was brought against Maytag; and they paid for repairs, replaced washers or provided credits toward new washers. Many of the problems were tied to the control board and "wax motor" door latch mechanism. Maytag charged $300 - $400 and up to replace the entire control board - when the parts on the board can be easily replaced for several dollars.

Anyway, you didn't include the nature of the problem you're having, so it's hard to provide any direction. It is normal for the board to become darker near resistors - but not burnt. Most problems are burnt resistors, triac and transistors - and of course, in my case - the "wax motor" that was responsible for the whole problem in the first place. It reported that the door wasn't locked - so high speed spin never took place. Clothes were wet and took a long time to dry as a result.

Provide as much detail as you can for the best answers. What does it do? what doesn't it do? strange noises? Has it slowly been getting worse? Does it smell? Do you use regular or HD detergent? I know some questions sound crazy - but knowing the answers to them does help!

My Maytag Depenable Care Gas Dryer has become very squeaky when the barrell spins. i took off the front panel and sprayed WD-40 on the backsides with the Plastic wheels and it went away for about 10...


Probably best to grease the wheels (called drum support rollers) rather than use WD-40 because that strips away the lubrication. It will also pay to check the drum support glides under the front of the drum. Worst case you may have to replace the support rollers.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(try this!)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Water won't stop running washer runs over will not agitate


It sounds like the fill switch is either disconnected from the detection hose, or broken.

To open the machine, press the spring clips inward with a butter knife or putty knife, and lift up the top panel. You may need a flashlight to see where the clips are, but they are in the crevice between the top panel and the front panel, on the left and right sides. Once lifted you should find a thin hose that leads from the side of the barrel to the switch in the control panel. Pull it off the switch and blow into the hose to make sure that it isn't clogged. Put everything back together, and if it does it again, you need a new switch.
