Hi Cindy,

Thanks for using FixYa. The error Lr means locked rotor. The error is its motor. You need to replace your motor and motor control board sold as one unit these are 3 phase’s motors and one of the phases is bad. Also after you have replaced the motor don’t forget to put a surge protector on these machines because a little power surge can damage the boards. I have heard that Maytag just figured this out because they are sending one with the new machines now. You can also order the motor conversion kit 12002039. Your problems will be solved. Instructions are in the kit, and it includes a new motor and board.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Washer wont finish cycle and display reads "LR"


Hello todd.... This is a common problem with the neptune. It means that the machine needs a new motor and a new motor control board kit. If you are under warranty do a repair. If not, get an estimate before you go ahead and repair it. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have a Maytag Neptune Top load washer that is displaying an LR code. I unplugged the washer and plugged it back in after about an hour. I was hoping that this would reboot the unit. Of course it did not....


Don,

See if this post will get you started; http://www.fixya.com/support/t2419091-maytag_neptune_top_load_fav6800aww_tub

The LR "Locked Rotor" error code could be related to a failed Control Board, Motor Controller, Motor or I feel the drive system is seized up.

Read thru the post and see if will get you started.

I have Maytag Neptune front loader washer. When


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.

What does the code Lr mean at the end of the cycle and door remains locked


According to the manual Lr means 'Motor not running properly' and it says you should call for service.

You may be able to open the door by pressing the start/pause button and waiting for a minute or so.

HI, the (lr) represent a Motor malfunction. this is commonly caused by a faulty Motor Control Board. you can confirm by inspecting the wiring harness that connects the MCB to the main control. if the harness is in good condition, replace the MCB.

MAYTAG NEPTUNE LR CODE


LR usually means that the the signal from the board is not getting to the motor either because of a bad connection at either the motor or the board or the motor itself is no good. Need to check the connections first.
