Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Both washer and dryer (MDG5500A) dead except for drum lights.

While both machines were operating a loose connection in the breaker panel caused an over voltage. The ceiling light on the same circuit would go alternately normal then bright then back again. At one point the control panels on each machine flashed PF before they went dead. The wiring has since been repaired, is there a reset procedure, fuse, circuit breaker, something I can do in the machine to restore operation?

I am afraid there is no breaker or fuse inside the machines that will cause the control panels to go dead. You can check your power to the boards at L1 and neutral. If you have the proper voltage here but controls are dead, you will have to replace the control boards.
I notice in your problem heading it stops at the word except. Except what?

Amana washer has lid lock. Appears washer drum fell. I would like to see if it aggitates but need to keep opened to see. How do i do that. I dont want lid to lock.

Please don't try to go around security systems. Machines can cause serious injuries and even can cause dead, when not operated correctly. If you don't have the skills to repair a washer, please don't try this your self. It is not worth, saving a few dollars and loosing a hand or your life.

Final high speed spin very noisey

Something is causing the drum to be way out of balance. Does it bang and make noise when it's spinning empty? Probably not. Is something stuck on the side (inside of course) of the drum, causing it to shake when spinning? If not, a spring or shock absorber (connecting drum to sides, bottom or top of machine) has broken or come loose.

I replaced heating element and thermostat dryer worked for 2 months now i dont get hot anymore

Hello George Schultz - Squeaking noise is usually caused by a problem with the belt, front and/or rear bearing, or a loose connection with the motor/drum. Since you have previously replaced the heating element and thermostat, but the issue continues try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes. If it proves to be ineffective, I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the unit, the part(s) may have to be replace depending if they are worn, damaged, or loose.

most probably the dryer is causing this.  the felt that holds the drum in alignment on the front panel is worn or has come loose allowing a gap to form between drum and front and so clothes can become wedged in the and taken for a spin around the drum and causing marks.

Hoover 0910dryer not heating. element replaced not long ago

Hi, the possible causes are: Possible Causes: The wall receptacle, power cord (plug) and electrical supply must be in good condition and wired correctly for the dryer to heat.
  • Supply Issue - Loose or missing connection on supply wire from circuit breaker.
  • Plug Issue - Loose or missing connection in the wall. Defective, worn or damaged wall plug.
  • Cord Issue - Loose, missing or incorrect connection of the power cord to the dryer terminals.
If gas dryer and does not heat, Gas Dryer heats with a gas burner, make sure the gas supply line valve is open.
Also, for electric dryer,
Electric dryers require two 30 amp breakers or fuses in the house electrical box to run and heat. If one breaker is tripped or one fuse is blown, the motor, the timer and lights can work but the dryer will not heat.

Power light doens't go o

Plug a working lamp in the washer power outlet. If it lights, the problem is within the washer (look for a breaker button on the back of the machine). If the lamp doesn't work either, look for a bad breaker, a loose neutral wire connection, or loose wire connection on the breaker. Check the wiring on the washer end as well.
