Problem with Maytag MAH2400 AWW

The washer starts correctly then after about 1 minute it will stop working and doesn't go past that stage. We tried different settings, hot cycle, cold cycle, etc. nothing seems to work.
Is there any one that can tell us how to run a diagnostic test on this washer?

As for the user whose machine will not drain and sounds as though a chain is clanking, the solution is probably a coin caught in the drain pump. I just had the same problem. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.

For the MAH2400 it is the Temperature and Spin key for 3 secs.

Works for Hotpoints:

Try the "on" & "start" buttons together for 10 secs or more. To get back to normal, do the same.

Maytag toploader washer fills up with water correctly, then waits several minutes to agitate, then stops for a few minutes then starts, also it only works in the delicate cycle.


Maybe the water doesn';t fill fast enough/drain fast enough so check all the filters.

maybe the heater is damaged or something is getting stuck somewhere now and then so to say, so it might just need some oil.

maybe a part of the chipset is failing.

maybe a valve in the water circuit fails.

i'd say you try to contact a technician and have him check it out.

I hope this is useful, and greets,

Try using some J.B. Weld on it instead of glue. It will essential form a weld and should hold up better. You might want to give that a try. Good luck and best wishes.

Maytag 5500 AWW Turns off randomly shortly after starting

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 electronic components. If you have either... then you will need the the new motor conversion kit which includes the new motor, new motor control board and the wire harness. What you describe are signs the motor control board is nearing its end of life...

The kit takes about an hour to install. See for disassembly photos so you can inspect the motor control board.

Washer make a loud squeak when the spinning stops

its the brake, just as long as it stops, dont worry about it, made a web page that has pics on how to replace the spin bearing on the maytag atlantis washer, after searching the net on how to, finding the manual, not explanatory, i decided to make this a simple 1 page web site, with lots of pictures, i hope this can help someone else in doing this job. since it would cost too much money for a repairman to do the job, better to buy a new one instead, i tackled the job. since it basically takes apart the whole machine, it might help others even if they dont have the spin bearing problem but other parts to replace,
