The problem is the User Interface board behind the control panel. This is a noted problem that often occurs with this model washer. The only option, I hate to say (unless you want to listen to the washer beep all the time) is to replace the board.

The part(s) you need are available at Simply type in your model number and look under the "Control Panel Parts" heading for item number 7 (User Interface - part #8564393). You may also consider item number 12 (User Interface Harness - part #3407184) to rule out the possibility of a bad wiring harness. You can try to do end to end continuity checks before considering a replacement just to be sure. The contacts are sometimes difficult to get to with a multimeter, though.

This is a fairly simple repair to accomplish on your own. Just follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer.
2. Remove the three screws in the back of the console.
3. With the screws loosened, the console will come of by lifting from the back first. Use care not to damage the small wire harness under the console.
4. Remove the wire harness from the User Interface board and remove the knob (by pulling) from the front panel. Lay the entire control panel face down on a soft surface (like a stack of towels).
5. Carefully remove the white plastic cover plate that is installed over the control board.
6. Once the cover is removed, carefully remove the old interface board by prying gently on the series of tabs around the perimeter of the board. There may also be some mounting screws to remove as well.
7. With the old board removed, carefully install the new board by inserting the control knob shaft through the hole first. Then, gently snap the board in place, making sure all the tabs around the perimeter of the board are in place. Reinstall any small mounting screws. NOTE: Do not handle the surface of the board with your hands. Handle the edges only, to avoid electrostatic discharge from your body causing damage to the board.
8. Reinstall the protective plastic white cover over the interface board.
9. Flip the console upright and reinstall the wiring harness and control knob (The knob only goes on one way).
10. Carefully insert the console in the front grooves on top of the washer, first. Then lower the back and reinstall the screws.

The repair is pretty straight forward. However, if you have questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

PS I tried to find parts for this washer at others websites, but could not find a listing for it.

My machine just died. No codes, no nothing. I thought it had blew a fuse. But the outlet is fine. There is no power to the unit. There is a load in the machine and I can't get it out. Help

Find the button on your panel with a 'key' symbol. Press & hold this down till the lock light goes off. Or

Hold down the 'options' & 'select' buttons together till the lock light goes off. Or
Press and hold down "end of cycle"
Pl. rate & tell me what did it - it is important.

Ok, it sounds either your hose from the water level pressure switch has come off or broke, or the pressure switch itself is bad.

Check the pressure switch hose first.


My tubing came loose and I just duct taped it back on and it works perfectly.

You would need to open your console as shown here:
Pull forward and up on the console and you can hinge it open and hanging from the hinges.

Here is your water level pressure switch:

How old is my maytag neptune washer. model # mah3000awa serial # 32156767uy

The two letters at the end the serial number indicates the year and month, respectively, when the machine was manufactured. Refer to the table below.

In the case of your machine, the letters are U(1987/2011) and Y(November). The machine was therefore manufactured on November 1987.

Hi just read your posting.Now you mentioned in your posting that the lights that are on when the machine is beeping are 1and 7.This is on the row of 8 lights and you started from left to right.Is this correct? If it is correct then the fault you have on your machine is called SINGLE ROTOR POSITION SENSOR ERROR.This means that the rotor sensor which is attached to your motor is faulty or your control module is faulty.Please reply with confirmation on the lights that are on when the machine is beeping and I am sure I can help you rectify this fault.Looking forward to your reply.

This is a common problem with cameras. They can get bumped when the lens is out, and that can jam the gear assembly, or break a gear. I could run down all the things you can try to free it up, but there is a better web page that deals with issues like this. The page deals with error messages for the lens, but the beeping you hear is an error message, also. Follow their suggestions to try to free the lens up- maybe you'll get lucky. They say that, in about 50% of the cases, it can be fixed by trying their suggestions. Here's the site:
If nothing works, make sure you get an estimate before getting the camera repaired. Sometimes the cost of repair justifies going ahead and purchasing a new camera, on sale, and is often less expensive than having it repaired. Good luck! Hope you get it working again!

Control Panel Comes On By Itself

Mine does this if there is the tiniest power interruption. Even if the lights only barely flash and nothing else happens in the whole house, the washer lights up. I just cancel mine out. It is not going to start running, and I don;t think there is a solution to this annoying little glitch.
