Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

Maytag neptune washer model 7500aww

The door switch keeps giving out. Is there a improved defective part. The sensor gets moisture and says the door was not opened since the last cycle to open and shut the door to start. I do that and the same messages appears.My husband noticed that the old switch that had been replaced looked like it was good, he discovered the problem is the moisture that keeps it from working. He's been changing the two switches, when one stops working the other is dried out and he puts it back in. So he said the next time it goes out he said he's going to bypass it with a togle switch. Have you or anyone done that. OR does Maytag know about this?

SOURCE: 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".

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune door lock stuck!!!

Try these steps:

1.) Take the washer outside. 2.) Loosen the two screws on the back panel and remove the back panel. The pump sits on the left-side of the opening. There's a black water hose with a metal clamp; 3.) squeeze the metal clamp with your fingers until it's loose enough to slide away from the pump. 4.) Separate the hose from pump and the trapped water will pour out and the door will then open; and 5.) clear any blockage from the drain hose and the pump.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

SOURCE: Maytag washer stopped working at the rinse cycle

do you have the machine set for cold water rinse? if so, the solenoid that allows the cold water to come into the machine may be malfunctioning. try to see if it will fill in the rinse cycle with hot water? if so, you need to change the water inlet valve.

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH 6700 AWW. It is shutting off and giving error code tE. Customer service does not recognize the error code. Can you help?

This is a problem with the signal from the water heating element "Thermistor" a Thermistor is a solid state sensor that senses temperature, in this case water temp. The Thermistor is part of the washers water heating assembly and not sold separately from it. There is a factory repair bulletin associated with the problem and the new part has improved reliability. I can't understand what the Maytag folks you called would tell you it is not listed, it is a common fault in the Neptune. Please rate my help. Thanks

No water

From what you've described, the problem may be a defective "door safety switch".

The purpose of the lid/door switch is to prevent injury when attempting to remove clothing articles when in the fast "spin-cycle" motion. I believe some models are now preventing the washer from working at all until repaired "mo money, mo faster!" ;)

I would access and test the lid/door switch for continuity; if defective, replace. Whats' the model # of your washer?

Maytag Neptune Front Door Load, Problem

Hello Yery1975

You said, you have a situation with my washer machine (Maytag Neptune front loader). It was making the noise several times as latching the door, then if would go off and you could not open the door, You found the under soap deposit cord but the situation is not opening the door or no, it is getting he machine to work. Whichever cycle you press, the door makes the locking noise several times, sometimes the door can not be opened and the lock door light is off, the thing is that whichever cycle you try the numbers on the electronic pad would go down several numbers and then it will again make the door locking noise and will stop there, the start button begins flashing and the machine does not wash at all on any cycle, neither it spins or rinses. Can you please, please, help me? Ohooo... some times after trying and trying get the FL code... you have tried keeping it disconnected from the electricity for long periods, plugging it back and all you can think off.... but nothing!!!

You did the right thing

The Maytag Neptune had a lot of very different defects that Maytag was, and is aware of still.
That is why they discontinued that model .
But if you call Maytag service this time, you may find that it will be one of those defects in their design and an authorized Maytag person will recognize which fault is taking place.
perhaps they may cover the parts if you bring it to their attention.

Thank You
