Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9700S Front Load Washer

High speed spin problem

Since purchasing my washing machine May 21, 2007 (10-months ago), it has had two major catastrophic failures—motor changed. When it goes into a high speed spin cycle it becomes very loud and then--bang! While this model is NOT part of a Maytag recall "Potential spinner malfunction may occur at maximum load capacity" is does resemble the MAH 9700 recall.

    I am having a similar problem with my Maytag Neptune Front Load. When I choose either one of the 2 highest speeds, it will accelerate until there is a bang and then it will slow down and abort the cycle. Unfortunately, the warranty period is over.

Will not go into high spin


Fault in the high speed winding of the motor or the failure of the control/switching to the high speed. Check to see the absence of the voltage which can confirm either the motor or drive.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers No Spin Problem


A class suit was filed in the State of Illinois, USA and then later on won against Maytag in 2004 due to the high failure rate of the wax motor used in the door lock mechanism of their Neptune Front Load Washers. The wax motor is used to activate the door lock switch by extending its shaft when a voltage from the machine control is applied across its terminals. Its failure then leads to the breaking down of components in the expensive machine control board. This is the fact that angered the customers which led to the filing of the class suit.

The obvious symptom of a failed wax motor is the inability of the washer to advance to the spin cycle and the door lock lamp is not turned on. The washer stops momentarily at the end of the wash cycle then continue to tumble as the machine control checks the activation of the door lock switch. The control will not allow a spin speed higher than 51 revolutions per minute (RPM) unless the door lock switch is activated by the wax motor. It is a safety feature of the washer to prevent accident due to accidental opening of the washer door during a high speed spin.

Customers who purchased the Neptune Front Load Washers in the USA after April 1, 1997 and before August 9, 2004 are Class members and eligible for the repair reimbursement, replacement cost, or purchase certificate depending on the length of service of the machine. Call up Maytag at 1-888-MAYTAG (1-888-629824) for more information.

The models included in the class suit are as follows: MLE2000AYW, MLE2000AWW, MLE2000AZW, MLG2000AWW (Gas Stack Unit), MAH3000AAW, MAH3000AEW, MAH3000AGW, MAH3000AWA, MAH3000AWW, MAH3000BGW, MAH4000AWW, MAH4000BWW, MAH4000AWQ, MAH4000BWQ, MAH5500AWW, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWQ, MAH55FLBWW, MAH55FLBWQ, MAH6500AWW, MAH6500AWQ, MAH7500AWW, MAH7500AWQ, MAH7550AAW, MAH7550AGW.

I have a F25 code pop up and it will not spin


If this is the washer and not the dryer then error code:

F25 = DRIVE MOTOR TACHOMETER ERROR
This is a major error you can try some of the items listed below?

If the control is unable to properly detect motor speed, the machine
shuts down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door unlocks
after 3 minutes.

1. Verify the shipping system including shipping bolts, spacers and
cables are removed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections between the drive motor and the Motor
Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
5. Check the MCU by looking for operations of the drive motor.
6. Check the drive motor for powered rotations.

Repeated failure of the aluminum hub which carries the spin tub. It appears to be eaten away by water or detergent. Casting pockets are filled with what appaers to be dried detergent residue in spite of...


The major cause of drum support failure is the use of todays modern powders and detergents, also .
another major factor is washing at too low a temperature.
At low temp washes , some of the active ingredients do not function at low temps..You need to change your washing habits.
Always follow the instructions on the wash powder manufacturers products, and at least once amonth do what is called a maintenance wash,this is putting the washer on at a high temp, with powder in, but no clothes.
This helps to keep the inside components clean
Another factor is using biological and non biological powders,
