Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Open Question

MAYTAG NEPTUNE WASHER MAH4000AWW (50316695YD) "OVERFILLS"???

When I start the wash cycle with setting's of "COLOR+COLD/COLD" selection's, I get hot/cold mixed fill water (that won't stop filling until it flood's), a delayed door lock indicator from 3-5 minute's. 1) If I hit the stop button, water stop's! If I unplug the machine, water stop's! If I restart and/or plug machine back in, it will resume from the point it left off and continue to overfill and flood. 2) Original "wax motor & indicator light" still work, but long delay in actuating.3) checked control board and nothing is burnt or scorched.4) checked pressure switch by doing own air test {blowing into it}, it seem's fine?? QUESTIONS... 1# Is the wax motor throwing my timer off? 2# Is a plugged hose leading to pressure switch causing the overfill? 3# Or is it electrical? P.S. I've installed a new water valve assembly already, and my problem's still exist. Any feed back would be appreciative......

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW noises

Cd, Im not so sure that the wax motor would have anything to do with the problem. If the door is locking, I would say no. It sounds more like it is dropping a phase on the motor. On this model the motor still can run under light loads when one of the 3 motor phases is not working. When you mentioned grinding noise, if the motor is not functioning right, (loosing a phase) it will be noisier and make a growling noise. Im wondering if that is what you are hearing. We can rule out the motor or motor controller but you are going to have to do some tests with an ohm meter. This will also require removing the door, front panel to get at the motor controller. The motor and motor controller can be expensive so you need to decide whether you want to invest money into this Neptune. You decide and post back. I can walk you through the tests. Catriver.

Have you changed your door latch wax motor yet... If you have the brown actuator pin then you want to chuck that wax motor out of there quicker than spit! You want the redesigned wax motor with the black actuator pin. I know of folks where the wax motor failure caused the timer and /or water valves to act up... See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

SOURCE: Neptune MAH4000aww overfills replaced water level

You need to check the thin clear hose going from tub to pressure switch, there might be a blockage. You need too blow in it to see if the switch clicks, then put it back on the tub and blow at the one on switch and blow into tub. This should fix the problem

I have a maytag neptune, model MAH4000AWW The washer overfills, the water will not stop running.


Most likely is water inlet valve issue but could also be water level pressure switch or air dome tube. Check youtube for some great videos on repair.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news
