Is the rear pulley tight? If the rear drive pulley is not tight it will wobble during high speed spin and drop the belt. Only other cause I can think of for this would be the rear bearing starting to fail allowing the entire shaft to wobble. You would be aware of this courtesy of a very loud sound during spin though.
http://www.ehow.com/how_5649680_change-belt-maytag-neptune.html Remove the back plate of the the washer. Loosen the 1/2" bolt that holds the motor to provide a little "play" in the motor shaft. Loop the belt under the motor shaft onto the pulley. Now pull the belt up onto the large pulley as far up as you can go and start rotating the belt and the pulley together until the entire belt is fed onto the pulley. This will be very tight and not easy. Retighten the 1/2" bolt. Manually rotate the belt and pulley around a few times both ways (clockwise and counterclockwise) to be sure it has seated on the motor pulley and large pulley. If the belt keeps coming off no matter how you reseat it you have a bigger problem.
The code means locked rotor. Disconnect power to the washer and remove the rear access panel. Remove the rear access panel securing screws and pull the panel off the cabinet.
Turn the drum pulley by hand to determine if there's a restriction that caused the locked rotor error. If there's a restriction, remove the drive belt. Pull the belt from one side of the drum pulley then turn the pulley in such a way that the belt unwraps from it.
Turn the drum pulley and the motor pulley to determine whether the drum or the rotor is being restricted.
The outer tub bearing is damaged if there's restriction in the drum pulley. Specify the model of your washer for the specific replacement part/s and installation guide.
Try to free the rotor if it is stuck by forcibly turning it back and forth. Replace the drive motor if the rotor cannot be unstuck. Specify the model of your washer for the specific replacement part and installation guide.
That is a tough one, especially since you indicate that the bearings are okay. The belt not wanting to stay on a Maytag Neptune washer usually does not bode well. It is usually an indication that the drum bearings are shot. Look for brown splatter on the back of the drum and the inside bottom of the washer. The presence of any brown discoloration is a pretty good indicator that the bearings are going. Anyway, hope this helped, sorry for your problem, and best wishes.
If you installed the belt correctly but it still comes off, that means most likely that the drum pulley is tilted, which indicates another problem - the central bearings are going out. Another symptom for that is a loud noise when the drum is spinning fast. The cure for that would be replacement of the outer tub or just replacement of the bearings with seal. If there's no noise during high spin - check if the drum pulley or the motor is loose.
repacing the belt on a neptune is simple. unplug the unit and move it away from the wall.. now remove the 4 screws holding the access panel in place. loop the belt over the end of the motor shaft so that the grooved side of the belt catches the grooves on the shaft. now simply feed it around the tub pulley. if you find the belt keeps coming off you might have a bearing problem tht has caused the tub to shift. look for fine plastic powder, almost dust like, that would be the pulley eating into the back of the tub
