Maytag neptun tub doesnt spin during spin cycle

The spin enable switch located on the door lock assembly is the most suspect failed part. Sometimes there are one or more sensors connected to the out of balance circuit that can cause a no spin condition. Lastly if your serial number qualifies, you will need a motor conversion kit as this failure can cause a no spin issue. Pleazer Appliance...

Loud noise on spin cycle only clothes dry good

Sounds like your bearings and seal need replaced... See Neptune Bearing for information on the Maytag Neptune bearing and 12002022 seal kit. You can also rent a special tool kit that includes the bearings, 12002022 seal kit, bearing spacer, step by step DVD, etc.

I would not run neptune with bad bearings too prevent more damage to the Neptune spinner support, Motor drive system...

I hope this helps you...

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!

My maytag neptune has no power any suggestions

Check for ~220 volts AC across the two slanted contacts on the dryer power socket. If nothing, check the house electrical panel for tripped dryer circuit breakers(pair)--push the breakers OFF, then ON to reset. Recheck for 220 volts at dryer socket--if ok now, try the dryer. You need to use a voltmeter for this checking. If it starts, then quits, you likely have an internal short (heating element) inside the dryer case that trips the circuit breakers.

Usually, the LR or 'Locked Rotor' indicates a problem with the motor / motor control board or MBC. The MBC is located near the floor on the right side. See for disassembly photos. The original MCB's had a high failure rate so Maytag redesigned the MCB and the motor. The motor conversion kit is part number 12002039, which includes the new motor, MCB, harness and takes about an hour to install. You can inspect the MCB for either a blown 10 amp fuse or if you see components that are burnt or discolored. If either of these is the case then you will need the motor conversion kit.

In addition, as your Neptune ages you might notice the spin cycle getting louder to where it will sound like a jet plane taking off. If this is the case then you can replace your bearings and seal kit. See You can also rent a special Neptune bearing tool called the tony tool which includes the use of a DVD that shows you how to take apart Neptune, replace bearings and install the 12002022 seal kit. I hope this helps...

Maytag Dryer

You can order a side vent kit for it or make one yourself. The kit has a couple of extensions and an elbow that will turn the exhaust out the knock out on the side. You can pick up everything you need at the hardware store but the kit has precut pieces and installation instructions. If it is not a big inconvienience to wait for it, I would recommend you order the kit through a maytag dealer or sears. That way you have the right pieces and instructions to follow.
