Maytag Neptune Frontload Washer (MAH5500B)

We washed a load the other day and went to get the clothes out and my wife noticed that the washer had no power.  It had blown a breaker, so I reset the breaker, and it immediately blew the breaker.  So I unplugged the machine for a bit and tried it again, this time I was standing next to the machine.  It clicked very loudly several times and blew the breaker.  The door had been locked shut during all of this, I was able to remove the detergent dispenser and release the door lock and get the clothes out.  But I can't get the washer to not blow the breaker.

What is my next step?  What do you think is wrong?  

Thanks for any help

My older Maytag Neptune has refused to spin off and on for several years. At first slamming the door worked, now nothing does. The drum rotates the same way it does for washing during the spin cycle.

Mildew smell


PLEASE KKEP IN MIND THAT THE MAYTAG NEPRUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER IS WHAT GOT MAYTAG IN TROUBLE!!!!!!
Whirlpool bought MAYTAG about 3 year ago.

THe mold is because of the rubber boot in the front of the door. PLEASE check to see if the rubber seal has a small hole in the lower bottom of the seal to let small portions of water drain out. If you DO NOT have this small hole, you need to replace the rubber boot with one that has a hole.
NOW, WORD TO THE WISE and this is what I tell ALL FOLKS that have a FRONTLOAD WASHING MACHINE:
AFTER you washer in the washer LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN so that the washer can ventilate and remove any moisture that is within.
ALSO, every 2 months, get a WHITE CLOTH with WARM WATER and a littl;e bit of BLEACH and CLEAN THE RUBBER BOOT!!!!!!

Maytag neptune frot load will not reach full spin speed.


It will not spin while washing, it's more of a rocking back and forth. As far as the spin cycle. If it's not reaching full speed I bet you'll notice that it's not doing the full cycle because the load is bouncing around and cause the washer to shut off. take some of the clothes out and watch it spin the water out.
