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 does it over flood ?

Thank you for your post, friend!

From my understanding your Electrolux washer is over flooding with water and leaking out the door. The valve or control panel is the reason your water continues to fill inside of your washer. If the gasket is worn or torn that could be what causes the water to leak outside of the washer. I would suggest checking over the gasket to make sure there is no visible damage. If you do not see any damage it could be loose hinges or a bad door strike. If further assistance is needed you may want to seek help from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this is helpful information. -Matt

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

If the motor was submerged in water it's probably shot. They aren't made to function during and after exposure to water.

Will not spin or agitate

did the washer cause the flood? you could have got water into the motor if it was above a few inches deep. do you hear the motor working, and no agitator movement? will it fill ? or is it just dead?

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.

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.

Washer does not rinse & spindry after getting submerged in water.

everything needs to be checked from the timer control button to the motor, im guessing it agitated through the wash cycle but wont spin now right? your flood could have damaged any number of items... run through ( with the machine unpluged ) and test the components for continuity and/or resistance.

F21 code on kenmore he2 plus

Clean the filter in the pump behind the bottom panel,but remember it's full of water,If it's on a pedestal you can take the pump loose from the mounting pull it out a little and put a small pail or bucket under it before you open the trap.if it isn't on a pedestal it's a bit more challenging unless your in a basement with a floor drain. Open it very slowly and let the water drain a little at a time don't take it all the way out or you'll be in for a flood....good luck
