Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Will not start

The control panel is unresponsive most of the time, although intermediately since the problem appeared it has worked. Unplugging does little. No error codes. Sometimes the lights will blink on the panel and the off button works. When start is pressed from off - it might start so be ready... The door appears to be locking fine when the machine runs and the cycle (whatever the lottery brings up) runs to completion.

Re: Will not start

Sounds to me like the main computer is malfunctioniong could also be the touchpad but that is less likely.

Washer don't work. all power available to machine.

Thank you for your post, friend!

If your Electrolux washer is getting power to it but not working it sounds like a possible issue with the control panel or keypad. I would perform a reset on your washer which you can do by unplugging the power cord or flipping the household circuit breaker.

If your washer continues being unresponsive I would seek assistance from a professional to come out and diagnosis your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Our Whirlpool Duet GHW9200LQ washer will not always start a cycle when you press the START button, although it does not give any error code. What's wrong?

I also have this problem. I removed the control panel, removed the green start button, put the control back together and pushed the red button on the panel and the washer works again. I just have to replace the start button.

My Whirlpool Caylpso display is stuck and will not start

You can try unplugging it for at least two hours and then re-starting. Since I moved my washer starting acting up getting stuck at various points in a cycle--sometimes 19 minutes, or 12, or 33, or rhyme or reason, no specific point in the cycle. My mover is an appliance repair guy and told me to do the unplug thing and it has worked multiple times--not that I enjoy having this happen over and over, but he told me Sears would charge a minimum of 100 to show up at the door, and I don't have that right now. Anyhow, it has only worked if I left it alone at least 2 hours---my new strategy is going to be unplugging it daily...I love the washer but this is nutty.

SAMSUNG WA2002 Washer

I had this problem when I used TIDE 2X detergent (thinking 2X was the same as HE). This happened several loads. I had bought several jugs of Tide (larger ones won't fit in drawer). Somehow grabbed HE one next time and didn't have this problem. Tried the 2X another time or two with again the washer stopping and LED lights on/unresponsive.

Solution was to not use anything but HE detergent.

Still having problem with Fabric Softener dispenser.
