Question about Washing Machines

Maytag front end washer mahh5500b

I spent $9.00 to get advice in which the one guy told us to sell the machine and buy a new one. How can you sell a machine that isn't working properly and we have too much wrapped up into it to let it go. Fwadley was the last one I wrote to on Dec. 24 with no response. I just replaced the mother board in which was suggested that would solve the problem. This solved the dispenser problem and partially solved the water problem. The current problem is that when you set it at wash hot and rinse cold it runs hot all the way through. They said it might be low water pressure or plugged screens in which the pressure is good in both the hot and cold water. I have checked all the different problems that people were having but not like ours I would appreciate any advice other than taking it to a repair shop in which they have already drained us of about $300.00 or more.

    Maybe I forgot to tell you that it will run cold water when you set it at wash cold and rinse cold. What is happening is that it won't change over to cold rinse when you set it at wash hot or warm and rinse cold. If there is a valve control that is malfunctioning then that is something else to order.

I need to fix the door of my Maytag Neptune Washing machine. It was off-balance with a bit of water in it and the door would NOT unlock so I pried it open with a screw-driver. Now it will not close


my advice is too leave it alone till the repair guy comes out

chill with the still

and let it alone
youll need to get spares i think to replace the bent metal perhaps
most often make do and mend

but better to let the repair guy do it
he is there anyway so leave him too it
foot the bill and livd and learn
dont pry things open!!!
if your locked out its for a reason

!!!!!!! stay mr patient always

The clothes are soaking wet after the run on the machine. It seems the spin function is not working. I have a maytag neptune model front load.


I have the same problem. I have spent about $1,400 in repairs on this damn machine since we bought it about 8 years ago. It works for a bit then something else goes wrong. This is the fourth time I've had this problem.
It's the belt, it's the motherboard, its this its that $200 a pop. Just enough to say ok, any more I'd buy a new one, then a few months later something else happens.

What happened to Maytag? My mom and grandmother both had maytags for years, decades without an issue. The new ones ****.

Error dc,uc and bangs during spin


Vic
I have posted many times on this forum my fix, if you have basic mech. skill sets you could try my maintenance fix. There was no real out of pocket cost I had a can of WD-40. If you can’t tackle, direct the service tech to a possible troubleshooting solution. See my post of 12/15 at this link, it has worked for a few forum members.
http://www.fixya.com/support/t350953-code_dc_appears_trouble_draining
Also have te svr tech read my comment of 1/19 in my trying to understand why the machine gives dc/UC errors in spin cycle.
Found clutch on ebay for this machine; http://cgi.ebay.com/12002211-NEW-MAYTAG-Washer-Pulley-and-Clutch-ASSY_W0QQitemZ110334944433QQcmdZViewItem

There are supplier links at this site for parts,
Good luck.

I agree with his diagnosis. The rear bearings have gone bad and will eventually either seize or start ripping through the outter tub. It is expensive to replace. However It is worth replacing. You will spend a similar amount of money or more on a new machine. The guy you called probably doesn't want to do the job and just said buy a new one. Also whirlpools and maytags at this point are one in the same about 1 year ago maybe alittle more whirlpool bought maytag so you will see more washers that look like whirlpools with a maytag name on it

I was told by 3 technicians that my washer had shot bearings and this is a common problem for the Kenmore Elite Front loader.

Sears knows it and it costs $800 to replace the unit with the bearings. They will not do anything about it except try to sell you a new washer.

I will not buy this washer again (especially from Sears).
