SOURCE: Getting error code#06 Lr Locked Rotor

I too had the Lr problem on my Maytag MAH5500B. We had it fixed once when it was still under warranty but when it appeared again this summer, I was told that it would cost at least $500 to repair -- in other words, get a new one.

With nothing to lose, I simply unplugged the unit, opened the front and reset (as in pull out and re-insert) the jumpers to the control unit on the bottom right. It's been working fine since and I run it at least twice a week. I noticed that the Lr error would appear when I interrupt the wash cycle once it begins. When the error message appears, I simply unplug it, wait a few minutes and start it up again.

It is after all, a computer...and all computer could use a reset once in a while.

says:

just an FYI to anyone who might need to know. my neptune started kicking up an error of LR and stopping. i ended up sending an email to maytag and got a response back from one of their techs. the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit board at the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its control board at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or control board at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N 12002039).

hope the info helps someone as i had a heck of a time finding it.

Not really bad news. The unit requires a door lock assembly.

SOURCE: Lr code on display

it is a problem with the motor .this is confirmed.

Issue
Washer stops in mid-cycle and/or flashes a code.
Warranty Standard product manufacturing warranty applies.
Action The motor drive system experienced a momentary loss of neutral feed from the power cord to the
Motor Control Board. The neutral line for the Motor Control Board passes across the water valve
solenoids. Neutral to the motor drive system can be momentarily lost If there is poor crimping of any
of the wire terminals in this circuit. This situation could result in a misdiagnosis and unnecessary
replacement of the Motor or Motor Controller Board.
Current Neptune front load washers will indicate a false locked rotor signal to the Machine Control
Board. Washers with a LED display will flash code “LR” in the display. LCD washers will display
“Locked Rotor.” The earlier built front loaders will not display a code, but simply shut down in midcycle
or will not start.
Pull each terminal of the white wire harness connected to each water valve solenoid and verify the
wire is properly stripped and crimped to the metal terminal connector of the wire harness. Make sure
the wires fit snug on the terminals of the water valve solenoids.
A product improvement has been made to the following models. The neutral wire is routed across
the pump only, and now by passes the water valve solenoids.
MAH55FLBWQ/W ..................... Series 12
MAH5500AWQ/W ..................... Series A7
MAH6500AWQ/W ..................... Series 33
MAH7500AWQ/W ..................... Series A6

My Maytag washer will not complete a cycle. The code Lr is display on the front of the washer. I have pulled the plug and reset the breaker.


Hi.

LR stands for locked rotor. The code is returned by the Motor Control Unit (an electronic module connected to the motor and to central control unit). The code is returned when no motion from motor rotor is detected. With many models LR may be due to a factory defect. Please call Maytag and check if any recall has been issued for error LR concerning your washer model. If recall has been issued you will get a kit comprising a new motor and wiring harness.

You can also try temporarily resetting the error by disconnecting power at circuit breaker (or unplugging power cord). If the error message is prompted again call Maytag.

Regards.

I have an Maytag neptune with an error code of Lr. It fills but doesn't seem to turn when washing.


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Lr means locked rotor, this issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and windings. If the wiring is good and windings are not burnt then you'll need to replace your motor and motor control board. These are sold as one unit, it is a 3 phase motor and one of the phases is bad. A little power surge can damage the boards. Please rate the solution if the issue is resolved else post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

How do I fix the problem when the washer says Lr? Where do I start? Thanks!


If you take off the front panel and look closely inside there is a tech sheet with test procedures to follow. I will warn you the LR code is about the hardest one to figure out. It means locked rotor and its telling you that your motor is not turning. Good Luck.

Hi.

Error LR means Locked Rotor.

Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.

Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.
