Question about Maytag Neptune Washer

1 Answer

Neptune MAH4000 AQW belt will not stay on.

I purchased and replaced the belt on my MAH4000 but it still comes off midwat thru the cycle. According to the installation instructions, this model does not have a tension adjustment. What am I missing?

If you installed the belt correctly but it still comes off, that means most likely that the drum pulley is tilted, which indicates another problem - the central bearings are going out. Another symptom for that is a loud noise when the drum is spinning fast. The cure for that would be replacement of the outer tub or just replacement of the bearings with seal.
If there's no noise during high spin - check if the drum pulley or the motor is loose.

Good luck,

On my maytag neptune model # mah4000aww the spin cycle is extremely loud and I recently noticed that midway thru the cylce there must be a leak as a small amount of water is on the floor under the front...


Hello, it sounds like your Neptune's bearings and seal need replaced... See NeptuneBearing for more info on replacing your bearings and renting the special tool kit to save you time.

I see that you have a MAH4000 Neptune. Did you know that your machine shipped with a faulty door latch wax motor that will eventually damage the control board? See NeptuneHelpSong for a video that explains what happens when it fails. You can proactively upgrade your wax motor before it fails and prevent the failure to the control board.

I hope this helps...

Model MAH4000, will not spin out, door lock will


Check if the "locked"or "door locked" light comes on. If it does not, you need to replace the wax motor in the door lock assembly and the machine control board, which is inside the control panel. The control board is expensive, so instead of buying the whole control board, if you're good in electronic repair and soldering, try checking ebay for the control board repair kit. Search for "MAYTAG NEPTUNE WASHER R11 Q6 REPAIR KIT". It has all instructions how to do the repair. Good luck!

Mah4000 won't go into spin cycle. drain pump is working, but no high speed spin.


Hi, this is MCU damage. This is called the Motor Control Unit. it manages the spin cycle in your unit. it is damaged at this time. replace it asap.

Sometimes there is water that fills in my washer after I use it. It does not happen right away but by the next day. I don't know the model but I do know this is an old washer....gold....I have had it for...


Q - My washer seems to keep filling  with water, the water keeps coming in the washer and going out the drain without the washermotor running.
A - This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

Machine keeps tumbling after wash cycle is completed.


Make sure that the replacement R11 is in fact connected to pins 1 & 2 of the Q6 triac. If the copper trace on the backside is open on either leg of the R11 to the Q6 then the wax motor will stay energized and that will cause the tumbling after the wash cycle.

See www.neptunehelpsong.com for a new funny song that explains the Maytag Neptune door latch wax motor issue.

A burning smell while Maytag neptune was washing.


Shut down and unplug machine a.s.a.p.! It could be your door latch wax motor failing which will burn the R11 (resistor) and Q6 (triac) on the machine control board. You did not mention which Neptune you had... If it is a MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker and you have not replaced the door latch wax motor (12002535) then your time is up. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for details for the repair kit or you can purchase a new control board and 12002535 wax motor and be up running quickly before the clothes pile get too high.

It could be the seal and/or bearings if the machine is starting to get loud in the high speed spin cycle. If so, See www.neptunebearing.com for the seal and bearing kit plus they offer a special Neptune bearing tool for rent called the tony tool. A Maytag technician will want to charge you $900 to replace the whole outer tub? Why replace it when just the bearings and seal kit need changed?

Whining during spin cycle

Could be a loose belt, or drum bearings,or ( drum rollers if your model is so equiped) In my mind machine would be worth repair when needed.
