Model MAH4000, will not spin out, door lock will


Check if the "locked"or "door locked" light comes on. If it does not, you need to replace the wax motor in the door lock assembly and the machine control board, which is inside the control panel. The control board is expensive, so instead of buying the whole control board, if you're good in electronic repair and soldering, try checking ebay for the control board repair kit. Search for "MAYTAG NEPTUNE WASHER R11 Q6 REPAIR KIT". It has all instructions how to do the repair. Good luck!

Wont complete the cycle reads Lr how do i unlock the door


maytag had many problems with this issue. "Lr" is a locked rotor in the motor. there is actually a motor control conversion kit maytag put out to fix this issue. And depending on the series number (first to numbers in the serial #) of your washer, there is a 10 year warranty for this kit. the kit is a new dc motor, motor control board, and harness. you should call maytag to see if you machine qualifies for this, the kits are expensive if you have to buy it. if you door wont unlock, and you need to get cloths out, open the lid for the detergent. look on the right side and the front inside where you put detergent in. you will see a green or red cord, that is the door lock release. if you pull on it, it will unlock the door, just dont pull to hard. good luck, shane

MAYTAG MAH6500AWW-WASHER WILL NOT AGITATE/SPIN


Hello,

Check out the motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt components. If you have either... then you will need the the new 12002039 motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness.

See http://www.neptunehelp.com/index_files/Page667.htm.

This kit takes about an hour to install.

Don't forget to replace your door latch wax motor. See www.neptunehelpsong.com to hear a funny song explaining the faulty door latch failure.

I would like to know the age of my machine, whether I should have it repair or buy a new machine. The model #MAH4000 Maytag Neptune. Lydia Dunbar


The age is determined by the SERIAL NUMBER. Please post back with your complete serial number, particularly the last two letter designations. With that info I can tell you month and year the washer was manufactured.

Maytag Neptune MAH5500B


only 2 or 3 real problems with this machine, bad machine controller( behind console) although lights on are sign that its good,
Either the pump is clogged and not draining water so it will never spin let alone spin full speed with water in tub, i also doubt that because it seems that s there just water within the clothes and not a tank full of water,
which leaves the last Major issue with machine and that's the motor controller, not telling the motor to spin.. could also be a bad motor but i really doubt that all....

This is a funny machine because depending on when it was made (serail number denotes its age) im looking up the model and your manual states that you have a 3rd yr to 10 yr part warr on the motor, Well on earlier models you cant replace the motor itself it comes as part of a kit, "NEPTUNE REPAIR KIT" which also includes the motor control board. reason i mention that is I"m able to get a motor controller covered by warr(as an authorized maytag technician) if the model will take the neptune repair kit, sure youll need to pay service and labor but the a part would be covered.
