Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Pushing Start Button only results in "Beep, beep, beep"

I've been washing clothes all morning and had no problems. I went to start the next load and even though the correct settings are lit up, when I push the start button, it only beeps at me. If I try to push the "off" button, the same thing happens. The only way to shut off the washer is to unplug it.

    Same thing, used all morning, then when to start the next load and all buttons just beep. No error code. Door appears to be shut well. Unplugged for 5 minutes and responded for about 10 seconds, then it just started beeping and won't actually acknowledge the changes.

Actually, what appears to have happened is that somehow the door locked while it was open. I've ordered the door latch mechanism and the repairman is coming as soon as the part arrives. Good thing too. The seal around the inside of the drum was torn in places and leaking water. We've ordered that too. Thanks for all your suggestions. By the way - there was no error code at all. Hopefully this will all help someone else.

There is no error code at all. After doing some more looking (and cursing) at the washer - it appears that the door lock mechanism is actually locked without the door actually being shut. I hadn't noticed that the door wasn't shut completely when I originally posted this question. After noticing that the door wasn't flush with the front of the washer I looked at the door lock mechanism and it appears that at some point it locked while the door was open.

Need to check that the lid is shut properly and the door is locking. You don't mention an error code in the display. Make sure there isn't one showing.

Possible that the main power has failed , the power supply of the unit had packed up or there is a serious fault in the controller unit. You need to open the control panel unit to trace this case specially using a multimeter, check for the AC power to the unit and check for the DC to the circuit. If not the panel is a suspect.

Hi,
I would assume the load in the washer is a small load and the washer has a difficult time adjusting the load to spin. I would push pause, wait for the system to unlock the washer. Check the load for how much water in the garments. If heavy, the unit has a unbalance issue, just try to continue the load. If the clothes are light than unload the washer into the dryer. Was the unit ran on delay? This may be a non issue if the unit ran on a delay and just never finished yet.
Give those a try and get back to me, I and interested in the status.

Washing not getting clean


ok, try this before you consider removing the bowl. 1st-- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda. 2nd---make sure machine has no clothes in it. 3rd-- empty the 2 pkts of bicarb of soda into the bowl. 4th-- select traditional wash mode , high water level, hot water fill. 5th-- push start. 6th-- let it fill and wash for about 5 to 10 min, then turn the machine off. DO NOT LET THE WASH CYCLE GET TO THE DRAIN OUT STAGE. ok now the machine is full water and bicarb of soda and turned off, LEAVE IT TILL THE NEXT MORNING.-- In the morning select traditional wash mode, high water level, hot fill , then push the start button. let it go thru the complete cycle and all the lint and dirt should be removed from the bowl. by the way once it has started to wash lift the lid and see if the agitator is working. good luck and please reply to tell me how you got on.

i think the drainage of your washing machine, is not functioning well,or it has a leak, that's why some water remain in the bottom of your machine..

Code rL or F34 --> Load detected in machine at the beginning of the clean cycle. Push stop, remove clothes from washer & try again. Mine did this to me, even though there was nothing in the washer. I just tried it a second time & all is good again.

Will fill and drain, not agitate or spin though


I am having the exact same problem with the same brand machine.  I put in a load of clothes to soak till the morning, but in the morning, the washing machine would only fill, spin, and drain.  The agitator would not wash the clothes, so they came out with the soap of course still crusted in.
