Question about Maytag Neptune MAH7500WH Front Load Washer
I have a MAH7500AWW which worked without any problem for 7 years. I have the whole door assembly replaced recently because the machine kept giving a message, " The door did not appear to lock..." After a few repeated door closings and pressing "off" & "start", I managed to start the cycle. It would work well for a few cycles and stop again. When the door lock is energized and closed, the wash cycle would complete without a hitch. Any help will be greatly appreciated -- short of changing the main machine control board. I checked all possible loose connections. I tested for continuity for the door lock switch: P8(3) and the neutral and P1(1) and the neutral prong of the power cord. Instead of a constant buzzing sound of the voltmeter that I expected, both tests showed a reading.
This sounds like a classic door lock problem. There was a design change in the lock assembly because of numerous problems.
You say you had the door replaced, did they replace the lock assy also?
The control puts power to the wax motor that operates the latch. As the door locks, the latch activates the lock switch that tells the control the door is locked.
What kind of reading are you getting on the lock switch?

The issue is with the door lock assembly that is bad and
should be replaced. If the door lock assembly is bad the control will sense
that the door is open and so will not start a spin cycle. If you want you can
test the door lock assembly with a voltmeter before replacing it. Hope this
helps...please post back for further assistance.
