Maytag Nuptune Washer

MAH8700AWW/SERIAL# 0188864GL was on the wash cycle and when it got to the spin cycle it start beeping and the display showed dc or dl. I called Maytag to trouble shot he ask me to unplug the washer for 15 mins. I advise him I already did last night because of the recall I read about at the Maytag link the night before. He advise me to plug the washer up and hit rinse and spin button than the just spin button and then the on button, with each attempt the wash light came on than 45 sec. later the door locked but (that did not work). Can someone help me please and thank you.

Re: Maytag Nuptune Washer

These units seem to all use the same control board and have the same issues. the intermittent and door lock issues are random and frustrating. it will take a person that wants to fix it. see this link for what to do. I have other links that explain the same.

My Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW washer when in the spin dry mode shuts down with a suds error?

Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU.
I machine will start- If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Maytag Nuptune washer in spin cycle sounds like a plane taking off

Something small, like a paperclip or the wire from an underwire bra can get stuck in the holes in the drum, and rub against the outer drum. You will have to check carefully to find it.

Maytag Nuptune... when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins , then stops. I push the start button and once again it goes through the one spin and reverse and stops again

""when it reaches the spin cycle, it spins, reverses direction spins""

So I understand do you have the washer top raised to view this action? The wash basket rotates one rotation or are you talking about the tumblers?

If you raise the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW the Spin direction will it rotate CCW with very little effort?

Any dC or UC error code on fail to Spin?

If you do Spin Only Cycle do you have the same results.

I would enter Service Mode and do the Quick Spin test on page 14 of the Service Manual and see what the results are.

Maytag neptune MAH8700AWW washer will not complete the spin cycle. It spins both directions but never goes past 6 minutes on the display. Eventually you get the "DC" error. It does this with or without...

If the clutch fails the first thing noticed is a UC or DC error displayed and there is no drain or spin.

If you are seeing the above error and having a problem with spin and drain then the most likely cause of this is the clutch. The clutch fails to lock down the spinners and the basket is unable to go into spin and without a 90 RPM there is no drain.

Replace the clutch.

The wash time continues to increase on every cycle. I have a Maytag Neptune TL Washer.

Thank you my machine model number. The reason I ask is so many folks post non FAV6800A/FAV9800A issues in this forum. This forum doesn’t ask for machine model number and serial number. Here we go.

Does your machine seem to take longer than normal to fill with water?

Does the machine increase the time during the Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle?

Are there any error codes to the LED display such as dC or uC?

Do you want to work toward a DIY fix? If not maybe we can get a solid feel for the issue that will help you in the decision process to bring in a repair company or replace.

So I can better understand the issue can you start a Quick Wash cycle with Soil and Spin settings set to lowest setting and if you could place a couple of bath towels in the wash basket for a load.

I want to see if the machine will go thru the Wash, Rinse and Spin cycle within the 27 to 29 min time of a Quick Wash cycle. I want to see if the machine is increasing Washer Cycle time in the Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle.

You should enter the Rinse Cycle at the 20 min mark on the LED display.

You should enter the Spin Cycle at the 10 min mark on the LED display.

Watch the cycle and see if you have similar times as I do. Let me know if the washer has any off balance issues as it enters into the Spin Cycle…..Rich

Sounds like the clutch spring is broken. You should have a UC or DC error code showing on the display. Only fix is to replace the clutch assembly.
