On going problems with our model mahh5500b maytag neptune washer

We described our problem with you before of the washer not running the correct hot or cold water which was selected and also the soap dispenser was not working. We went through all the simple things of changing the hoses around in which we were told that it was probably the main control board in which we ordered and replaced. The soap dispenser works but it selector still runs the opposite water that was selected.
What next. We have had nothing but trouble with this machine and have spent $300.00 or more on it. Please help

Make sure to check the screens on the water connections located on the back of the washer. I have had problems before with screens that are blocked restricting the flow of water to the washing machine.They can be taken out and cleaned with A tooth brush. Low pressure on hot or cold water could change the temperature that you select. Another problem could be the fill valves that fill the washer going bad.(stuck or not opening.) They are not as expensive as control board or timer on some models.

Hello, I am sorry for your lost time and money. I know you would like to fix this, but at what cost and time you are willing to put in it. You can buy a new one for what you have spent in time and money. I would sale it, and get anything back out of it you can, and go get you a new one with a warrenty. Good Luck. Farren

We just installed the MAH9700AWM Maytag Neptune and got an error code OE? We cancelled cycle, etc still getting issue.

The "OE" error code means the control detected the water level in the machine is above the overflow level. According to your description the first failure suspect is the water valve possibly stuck. Perform the troubleshooting as described in the tech sheets.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

My Maytag Neptune 7500 front load washer will not turn on when the AC or heat is running

Check voltages at the outlet. My guess is that you are on the HVAC circuit, and the Neptune is more sensitive than your hvac equipment. Also check that the neutral is about the same potential as the ground.
