Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
My Maytag Neptune will not fill with water.
Check that water supply is turned on! if it is, you need a new inlet valve.

If the machine continues to fill even after the power has been switched off, this sounds like a stuck inlet valve. To identify the valve, look at your model in the "parts store" section of Maytag's website. The valve is item 21 on the "Control Panel, Top & Lid" drawing. From the drawing, the valve looks like a fairly standard item; I suspect you might get something suitable a bit cheaper elsewhere. A

This can be a bad inlet water valve. Does it stop filling when you unplug unit? If it does, your valve is probably ok. If it doesn't, replace inlet valve assembly.
If water does stop, you may have problem where the air dome has become dislodged. You need to remove a inner drum vane and then turn this spot to the bottom. There should be a black ruuber unit there. This is the air dome. It mist be seated.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual, it may not be there, they want a tech to come by to make more $). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum) Of course some direct the hose into sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Rate me nice or not at all. Happy spinning! Nice to watch the machine spin, not your head!

There are a couple of common causes for a problem like this. First is a bad door lock assembly that also damages the machine control board (in the control panel). If this is the case the R11 resistor on the machine control board will be burnt.
Maytag has identified seven resistors that relate to specific components that need to be checked or replaced if the resistor is damaged. Listed here are the resistor identification, the circuit involved, and the recommendation:
R9 / pressure switch / check for loose connections or high resistance on switch contacts; replace pressure switch if necessary.
R11 / door lock wax motor / replace door lock mechanism and machine control board.
R51 / hot water valve solenoid / replace water valve and machine control board.
R52 / timer motor / check for loose relay terminal connections and replace machine control board.
R53 / cold water valve solenoid / replace water valve and machine control board.
R143 / (-) 24 Volt DC / contact was made between neutral and the 24 Volt DC circuit.
R162 / electrical buffer circuit / wire harness and machine control board.
Another common issue is a slow water fill fault. If the washer does not fill within a certain time the control will stop on a fault. Usually when this happens the START button can be pushed to continue the cycle.
Washing machines that won't fill or fill slowly often have a restriction in the incoming water supply -- usually in the screens of the inlet hose washers or the water inlet valve itself. Remove the hoses to inspect this condition. If the water inlet valve screens are plugged, replace the water inlet valve.
