    Thanks so much! Any idea what part number the pc board would be and is it all one piece? I took out the main panel with the boards and it appears to be a one piece unit. My serial number is: 10585147GJ for the board.1

    I have a sr code on my maytag neptune washer. I have read that the computer board needs to be replaced. But, it sounds like the motor is just humming when the washer is on. Everything seems to be working, but wont spin. Do you think we need both or just a new motor which is under warrenty?

    My Maytag Neptune front load washer is displaying a "Sr" error message. When I turn it off, it just keep coming back on again and again. I unplugged it and it still does the same thing.

    Maytag Neptune Front load purchased Feb 2006. No problems to date, all the sudden, error code "sr" and I cannot turn it off or make it respond. I understand from other posters it is a circuit board. Any recalls or special warranty info for this board? Anyway to get the thing free or discounted? What about a used one? For the local price here of $385.00 for board and installation, I can go buy a new "regular" washer!!

When Sr appears I banish it for a few weeks or longer like this:
(1) Close the washing machine door.
(2) Turn off the GFCI or circuit breaker and wait for ALL lights on the washer to go out.
(3) Open the washer door and leave it open while doing steps 4 and 5:
(4) --- Turn on the GFCI or circuit breaker.
(5) --- Press the washer's Power button to turn it on, then again to turn it off.

Neptune mah8700aww has a e3 code

The Neptune can sometimes be reset. God knows the repairman for Maytag really needs to get back to work, yet to reset the cpu on your washer/dryer just unplug the unit for 60 seconds. I hope this helps you out.

What is the error code dS for Neptune Maytag Washer MAH8700AWW?

Please advise me on any recalls and technical information involving error code 3E during a wash load, which appears related to be a faulty control panel. My machine is always shutting down each time it reaches the rinse cycle. Numerous consumers have been complaining about this same model at Replacement of the control panel is expensive at an average cost of 298 dollars and appears to be the corrective action for other consumers with error code 3E. Over current is not being detected at the motor. I'm disappointed with the quality of this washer considering I purchased it in 2005 for over 1,000 dollars. This problem has forced me to use a local laundry mat to wash my clothes. This error code is not listed in the User manual.

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.
