If you had to replace blown capacitors on the control board, whatever took them out most likely took out something else on the board at the same time. Causes are many...lightning strike, moisture, bugs etc. I would look carfully at the board with a magnifing glass...you might get lucky and find a short you can fix. If not, your probably going to have to invest in a new control board.

SOURCE: Washer Stuck in Cycle

I checked the lid switch and nothing appears to be broken (cracked plastic). What exactly should I be looking for? Also during the agitator cycle I opened the lid and the washer stopped working. Does that mean that the lid switch is working?

Cycle selector on normal mode. cannot operate water tempertures orsoil level light indicators on a infinityfaf


Ron kundrat,
So I understand that you are unable to operate the water temperatures and soil levels on your infinity washer, while on the normal cycle.

I suggest to give your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. After the 3-5 minutes, bring power back and try to start a cycle.

If you are unable to change the water temperature and soil level settings, while in the normal cycle, I suggest to contact your local authorized technician. They will be be able to come out and diagnose the washer and see why you are unable to change the settings.

-Best Regards-

The times seem to have changed on the settings for soil levels. For instance, the quick is 50 minutes and the normal is 84 minutes. That does not seem right. Is there any way to set them different?


Answer to your question "Is there any way to set them different?" Short answer is no. The Maytag Neptune like many other washers that display a time of cycle first start with an estimated time this relays a lot on the last cycle ran. But, more importantly it also takes into consideration other washing options. For example, lets say that your quick wash cycle used to only display 35 min. now if you select an extra rinse option the time will increase from that 35 min. to a higher amount of time. This is due to the longer time it takes to go through a second rinse cycle. The MAH5500 if I'm not mistaken also has a heater in it so there are options such as sanitize which takes 120 degree hot incoming water (suggested temp. for hot water heaters) and heats it to approx. 165 degrees. And as you can imagine this takes a washer some time to do this (increasing wash time). If you would like to lower washing time check the washing options and remove any that are not needed at that time; pay close attention to extra rinse cycles and the soil levels that are selected. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Steam cycle runs on every setting


The steam will only run on certain cycles. If you look at your dial you will see a pink line which indicates which one. Your unit does have a recirculatting pump, maybe you are confusing the two. One way to check is to run a delicate cycle. During the operation press the wash/rinse and soil level buttons together. Hold them, a display will pop up with readings in the second coloumn, and second row it will display the tempurature of the steam generator in ceilsus. This will confirm whether or not it is on.
