Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Wont start The machine will work if I unplug it and then plug it in again. If I do not and try to use it, hit start, the led at estimated time shows "0d" the 0 looks like the bottom of a digital 8 and the d looks like the bottom of a digital 8 with an upright on the right side. No matter what button I hit this display does not change and it will not start. Once I unplug and plug it back in it works again for one load. ???????

Re: wont start

Just the other day I started to have the same problem. After a little reading and a look at the machine I noticed that the door switch was not sticking out. The switch is jammed. I havent gotten a chance to take it appart yet but I would try spraying the switch with some wd-40. The switch could be bad or just stuck. The door switch is on the front housing next to the door latch receptacle. Pretty shure that is your problem. Good luck

Machine wont start

Perhaps your user manual could explain what the flashing LED means. First thing I would do is unplug for a minute or so, then try again. A Google search may find you a manual. I hope this helps.

Wont start.buzzes.unplug to turn off

Possible unbalanced load in the washer. I have found this to be the case in other types of top load washers. Just redistribute the load the try again. If this works, washer is doing what it needs to do to keep from spinning madly out of control and extending its life!

Machine wont restart after inadvertantly hitting the stop button instead of the pause button

I believe the final solution was to unplug the machine for several minutes. When it was plugged in again I hit one of the wash cycle buttons and after a minute or so the button indicating that the door was closed properly lit up and then the machine resumed it's cycle.

Drum light stays on and wont let me start it again. Its dead but has light.. I have to power down the entire house to get it to start again

I had the same problem. LG addressed the problems as follows:
1. Unplug the unit 2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds. 3. Plug the unit back in.
It WORKS!! It's like reseting your computer or alarm clock. You've got to kill the power and press and hold the on button while it's still unplugged.
Hope this works for you.

Power out when running. showed code F 71 now not working.

After power outage that will happen do this to fix.
Select PAUSE/CANCEL twice to cancel the cycle. Select
DRAIN & SPIN if there is excessive water in the washer.
Re-select cycle and press START. If the problem remains, call
for service.

Indesit WIDL 106 wont start -ON/OFF-Door Led Flashes rapidly

It is a defectiv controller pcb. I think the eeprom on the controller pcb lost its program (happens often on Indesit machines).

The only solution I know is to change the controller pcb, - not a cheap solution.
I have the same problem with WIDL 106.
