Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Flood Damage? Our basement was just flooded, with appoximately 11 inches of water. We put the fan on the back of the washer to help dry it out for a couple of days, but that didn't seem to help. It keeps giving us a code of DO when we hit the start button. The Neptune Dryer is fine and works. Please Help.

Why wont the motor on a top load roper washer work after a flood

Basement got about 4 inches of water. Washer will turn on, but does not function.

Sounds like the Motor Controller on the left side of this Pic may be the issue. The Drain Pump/Pressure switch is on the left side of the Pic. I feel the drain pump may not work after the basement flood. You can get into Service Mode and try to turn it on from the Console once the machine is dried out.

No heat..we had a basement flood and dryer won't heat up.

If your dryer was under water, even if only a few inches, then the electrical parts inside it will need to dry out before you even attempt to use it. Chances are, you will have to have it serviced now or replaced completely.

F/ll blinking is there a switch in case of flood?

If you had a flood and any water got into bottom of machine, you have probably shorted out a motor control board. These board are either in the lower back right or front left corner bottom. A qualified service tech should be called to do this repair.

Machine not starting ...Programme Progress Display light flashing

This normaly indicates an error code. Could be the anti flood device activated due to water leaks etc. The anti flood device (polystireene float and micro switch at base of machiene) puts the washer on pump out mode and shuts off the inlet water. Dry the water at the floor of the washer and check and rectify any leaks.

Refrigerator was in the basement with 6" of water....

The electric parts that got wet will need to be dried out. Try putting a flood light etc. shining on the bottom for a few days to see if it will dry it out, then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start. Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Dryer won't run.

First, there is an excellent chance you have some kind of flood damage insurance.  It may pay for part of the repair.  You did not tell us what is not working but I'll guess it is the motor.  On many models, there is a switch on the motor which will not allow the elements to heat unless the motor is powered and running.
