Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Stuck in spin cycle

The timers starts at 18 mins and then counts down to 17 mins and starts to spin. Before it reaches full speed the control lights all flash, go out and then the timer resets to 18mins. Therefore it never finishes the spin cycle. I have cleaned the drain pump, removed the clothes but the timer still resets to 18mins. It does not appear out of balance.

The heating element maybe faulty,
or even the thermostat .
If one is not working,
and the temperature does not get to the required temp,
the washer reboots, and tries again,ect

SOURCE: Whirpool Duet won't spin clothes at high speed

Thinking of 2 things either the transmission is out or the clutch is burnt out and the drum basket and possibly the drive shaft broken as well. Prices vary greatly by how many of these things are broken but should run between 100-200 including labor.

SOURCE: Won't pump out water at the end of wash or rinse cycle.

I don't know this model at all, but hada similar set of syptoms on an electrolux .....

Just a thought, but have you checked the pump chanber is not impeded by a stray hairgrip, or bit of wire?

The fact it doesn't pump when it should, but allows water to pass when the centrifugal force of a spin cycle builds up, would indicate that maybe its the pump that either has a jammed impeller, or a blown motor (or fuse).

SOURCE: will not spin, clothes are soaking wet.

Are you sure washer is level? I solved our problem that simple and I had worked on solving it for weeks until I double checked the level and found it a little off. Now it works wonderfully.

I start the wash cycle timer reads 1:02 machine runs and timer counts down to 54 mins. then resets to 1:12 mins. which inturn adds approx. 18-20 mins to wash cycle why the reset??


I had a similar problem with ours and had a repair guy come out and look at it. He suggested running a couple of heavy bleach cycles through the machine. He said that sometimes if you use too much detergent (especially if you're not using the "High Efficiency" type of detergent) detergent builds up on a sensor in the machine and causes longer than necessary wash cycles. We actually ran 2 cycles of bleach and then a couple more with no bleach or detergent and the problem cleared up.

Maytag Neptune TL clothes still dripping wet after full cycle


Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good.

No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine.

You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head.

Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached.

""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code.

The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle

I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min. I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM. At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle. You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine. Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

Spin Cycle


I just replaced my second motor control board because of the same problem. Mine starts to spin but never reaches speed and stops, then it repeats. It can do this for hours. I think we are overloading the machine washing area rugs. The fuses are OK on both failed boards and nothing is burned and all caps look normal. At $150 a pop, I would rather replace some components if I knew which ones. For a quick fix, the new board worked for me.

Washer fills with water and thats it


Possible a bad motor control board. Depending on the age of the washer, you may need to replace the motor control board and the motor as a kit. Also be sure to test that the motor control board is getting power, I've seen cases of the motor/ motor control failing and taking out the main control also. The tech sheet is in the console and should walk you through the steps.

Maytag Neptune MAH5500B


only 2 or 3 real problems with this machine, bad machine controller( behind console) although lights on are sign that its good,
Either the pump is clogged and not draining water so it will never spin let alone spin full speed with water in tub, i also doubt that because it seems that s there just water within the clothes and not a tank full of water,
which leaves the last Major issue with machine and that's the motor controller, not telling the motor to spin.. could also be a bad motor but i really doubt that all....

This is a funny machine because depending on when it was made (serail number denotes its age) im looking up the model and your manual states that you have a 3rd yr to 10 yr part warr on the motor, Well on earlier models you cant replace the motor itself it comes as part of a kit, "NEPTUNE REPAIR KIT" which also includes the motor control board. reason i mention that is I"m able to get a motor controller covered by warr(as an authorized maytag technician) if the model will take the neptune repair kit, sure youll need to pay service and labor but the a part would be covered.
