Neptune MAH3000AWW won't shut off automatically

My Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWW washes, rinses and spins fine, but when it reaches the end of its cycle, it won't shut off.  It just sort of rotates every minute or so.  This will go on indefinitely.  If I manually shut it off, the door unlocks after about five minutes, but I would really like to be able to wash a load an not need to be there when it finishes ... or come back in five minutes to dry the load.  I can't imagine that it's good for it to stay on like this.  

What might be wrong?

Thanks so much,

 - Scott

Sound like there is a fault in the control panel. Check the manufacturers website and see if there is a recall on this model. If, not, then take the panel off, and check the selector switch which controls the cycles. See if there is a catch that is not engaging, or not making contact. If this is a digital, board, then you might have to replace the whole entire control panel. Check the instruction booklet on how to order this part. Install should be very easy, just remove a few screws, and swap the parts out.

My maytag neptune MAH3000aww washing won't go into

most common issue with these is the door lock assy. You need to remove the control panel and check the R11 resistor on the board most likely it will be burnt. This was a common issue a few years back. If the R11 resistor is burnt you need to replace the door lock AND control board or your problem will occur again.

Hope this helps _MJ_

motor controller or motor, weigh the cost of the repair before comitting to the repair, new parts only carry a 90 day warranty

Maytag neptune won;t rinse

Check latch mechanism for alignment. Often operation of machine loosens latch mechanism causing internal switch for "door open (or ajar)" preventing rinse or spin cycle. Opening and closing door presses latch mechanism closing internal switch allowing for continue processing to rinse or spin cycles.

re original issue, see if R11 is burned. if so, need to change R11 resistor and associated triac, and probably wax motor so it won't do it again. temporary fix just cut out R11, door won't lock. if your model won't spin that way, depress actuator for microswitch from door wax motor. instructions on web.
