Very easy fix, My 11 year old fixed it last time.

There are coins or objects clogging the pump. It cost me $170 to get this fixed, it will cost you nothing and take less than 20 minutes.
You will need a STAR screwdriver or bit for cordless screwgun. If you need to purchase one, take a picture with you cell phone and show it to guy at hardware store. They cost about a $1 more than a regular screwdriver)

1. Take out star screws and remove bottom kick panel.

2. There is a round cylinder facing you with a scew on cap. (This is the pump.)

3. There is a wire essembly in front of pump, it snaps in. Just pull up on it and it will unsnap. (May have to use a little force, but it is made to pop out).

4. Remove the two screws for the pump.

5. Slide pump out (it is mounted on rubber gromlets and will just slide out).

6. Place mop bucket or pan under the pump.

7. Unscrew pump side cap and let water flow out. (Make sure pan is big enought to hold all water or get two).

8. After water has drained shake pump around, it is common to find change in pump. ( If you have baffels missing in the washer drum even small socks or underwear can get lodged into pump.)

9. Put pump back in and try running washer there may be more stuff in pipe hose and this will flush the rest out. (Some units have a little toggle switch that will not let unit run unless kick panel is installed, so you may have to reinstall it to try and see if it worked)

10. If it drains put cover back on, if not check the pump again to pull any new objects out.

Good luck!

Maytag Neptune washer machine won't spin or fully drain


    • 1 Open your home's breaker box and flip the circuit breaker switch to "On." If it is already set to "On," flip it to "Off" and then back to "On" to reset it. A power surge may have interrupted your wash cycle so the drain/spin cycle never actually started.
    • 2 Move the washer away from the wall and straighten the drain hose if it is twisted or turned in a way that makes it difficult for water to flow through it. Replace a kinked hose with a new hose.

    • 3 Push on the washer door to make sure it is fully closed. The washer will not drain or spin unless the door is closed tight. Press the "Start/Pause" button after you close the door.
    • 4 Wait for about 30 seconds after you press "Start/Pause." The washer will not operate until it has been able to fully lock the door and restart the drain process.
    • 5 Run the clothes through a complete cycle again, making sure you use cold water if there are a lot of suds in the washer. Too much soap in the washer can make it hard to drain. Use high-efficiency or low-sudsing detergents on subsequent uses.

Maytag neptune MAH5500BWW front loader didn't drain after a wash cycle. first time wife put it on spin for a few minutes and it drained, no problem. A week later that didn't work, code...


Yes you need a new control board. The fact that the motor and impeller was damaged and loosened. You should try taking your Washer in for maintenance check or call the repair man.

I've gotten the error code DL and then F, I tried sanding, unplugging but it still shows me the error. How can I fix it?


Hi,
Initially unplug the washing machine.While the washer remains unplugged, press and hold the [Start/Pause] button on the front panel for five seconds.
Plug the unit back in, and run a rinse and spin cycle to test if the DL code is cleared.

If you still face the problem then follow the procedure:

Unplug the washer and allow the unit to sit for 30 minutes to give the suds time to dissolve.

Plug the washer back in and press [Power] to turn on the washer.

Do not choose a washing cycle. Press the [Spin Speed] key until "No Spin" is selected.

Press [Start/Pause] to begin a drain only cycle.

After the drain only cycle has completed, remove the clothing items from the machine. Turn the power back on and select [Rinse and Spin] and then press [Start/Pause].
This will remove excess soap suds and light residue from the drum.

Repeat this step until no visible suds are in the drum of the washer.


Hope this helps.

Error code f and dl won't drain or spin


"Fdl" is a Door Lock error. This is usually an indication of a failed door latch mechanism. To access and/or replace the door latch, click on the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587965-door_latch_replacement_fdl_error

A replacement latch can be located at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number in the "Search" window. You can locate it under the "Door and Latch Parts" heading as item number 7 (part #8181700). This is an easy repair job if you wish to accomplish on your own and avoid the added cost of labor.

If you do not wish to order the part online, use the part number provided and go to your nearest applaince parts retailer. I hope this helps you. Please post back if you need further assistance.
