I have a maytag neptune front load washer mah9700, and i need to know how to reset it. its on a quick wash cycle, but it has a delay for the door to lock , then when it does, it does nothing. it has a...

The "nd" error code on a Maytag Neptune MAH9700 means that the water level is not draining quickly enough or at all, in some cases a symptom of a restricted drain system or a hose twist. If you have the tools and don't want to call a repair technician, the service manual (found at, recommends the following steps:
1. Check for restricted drain system. 2. In cold climates, check for frozen drain hose. 3. Check for 120 VAC at the pump when a spin cycle is selected. 4. Check pump motor winding resistance. (14.2 +/- 7% ohms) 5. Check that the machine control correctly senses the water level in the washer [by performing the] Board Input Test [found in the manual]. 6. [Perform the] Board Output Test and perform the Pump Out Test. 7. Check the Machine Control Board connections at CN10 (Pin 6) for the pump. Should see 110-120VAC.(Refer to the component testing procedure). 8. Check tub to pump hose for twist in hose.
I would recommend trying several of these steps that are within your comfort level. If the problem persists, it may best be solved by a licensed repairman.

I have a Maytag Neptune Washer Model #MAH5500BWW. I am getting an Lr error code. I ran a diagnostic wash and it stopped with the Lr cade and I pushed ^ t continue the diagnostic test. What should my...


Lr means locked rotor, this issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and motor 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 as a little power surge can damage the boards. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My washer is showing a sd or 5d in the minutes place and locking what should I do.


Thanks for using FixYa. Error 5d means too much detergent was used. Try the following procedure---

Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. If still the problem persists, then please check the following things--

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

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

Will not spin or drain during spin cycle and make a humming noise

More than likely coins or other debris have made it to the drain pump. It is an easy fix but costly if the pump is damaged. I have had to remove coins from mine atleast 10 times now.
