Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

When I wash towels, I get the SD message then sometimes d5 or DL

I've tried lightening the load, running spin only, everything I can think of. I'd say probably 90% of the times I wash towels this washer does this. Any ideas?

Check the water inlet valve. Make sure that the wiring connections at the solenoids are clean and tight. Make sure the the connectors on the end of the wires that plug onto the solenoids are crimped on tightly and are not corroded. This is a common cause of this code on the Neptune washer. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Washing machine won't go to spin cycle if there are towels in it


Washing machines have trouble if they are overloaded and the load gets out of balance. This occurs most often with towels. Open the machine and lift the towels out and put them back in evenly to get the load to finish. You will see how heavy they are when full of water. In future, try running with a few less towels and see if it works ok. You have found the other 'fix' by draining and running spin only which probably resettles the load.

WHIRPOOL washer model LSR8010PQ0, WHEN LOADED WIT...


If large items in the machine create an imbalanced load the machine is designed to switch off...Towels are notorious for doing this because they hold so much water. Jeans don't soak up much water. Wash towels with towels alone and the problem should be reduced....Good luck....Nomess

I just put in a large load of towels and it filled with water but stopped spinning and now it won't spin period


Sounds like the "Overload" has been "Tripped"? What does your manual say to do when that happens?, I think you have to lighten the load and reset/restart?

Maytag Front Load Washer - SD error


hi there,

it appears that you have a door switch problem. the door latches on these machines are equiped with a mechanical switch and if this switch disengages in any way, the machine thinks that the door is open, even if it's not.

the code that you see is actually a "dS", which stands for door switch.

check the door latch, which is where the door switch is located.

thanks.

5d is actually Sd, which means too many suds. Make sure you're using "he" types of laundry detergent.
