The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, thoughnot always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on theMotor Control Board.

just an FYI to anyone who might need to know. my neptune started kicking up an error of LR and stopping. i ended up sending an email to maytag and got a response back from one of their techs. the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit board at the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its control board at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or control board at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N 12002039).
hope the info helps someone as i had a heck of a time finding it.

LR = Locked (main motor) Rotor and very likely a new motor will be needed but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.

Looks like another motor/motor control panel replacement. This machine has a faulty motor/motor control board, it has been re-engineered with a replacement. Has yours been replaced? Have you found the tech sheet behind touch panel and placed machine in service mode to test? We had the same issue, worked sporadically, didn't drain, got LR code then eventually stopped working. Check your spin in service mode, if it doesn't spin properly you should find out here. It is a very simple repair in all actuality. Contact Maytag and they will sell you the parts for a discounted price, make sure that you buy directly from Maytag, also check your boot very carefully since that part will also fail and allow water to get into the bottom of the machine where you have electronics.
