    i have washing machine MAH5500B and the motor control
    board is fried (not fixable, board traces are burnt). R18 or R19 (next to R29) I need to replace
    this board but i cant find the same one. Is there any replacement? the
    maytag part# is 6 2713980, model# AA20630, ref# 298901, U.L. FILE# E22922, ID# 2932336054, REV# 03 0112D0. I also read somewhere that the door lock might blow a resistor. I found the Trouble Shooting Guide (TSG) up under the control panel. I ran all the tests and the motor one is the only one that didnt work. The lock/unlock door test worked fine.
    The TSG said unplug J4 on the motor board and run the test and the motor should run, but it didnt. Both motor test failed to run the motor. Would a bad motor blow the board. I have the board out, just need to find where to get a replacement one. Pleases help!!!!

    Exactly the same problem (burnt IC1, R19, etc.). Getting the run-around from Whirlpool (Maytag rep in Canada). They say have a repair guy come out to see what parts are required but no one services this area. They won't confirm the 12002039 conversion kit is under the 10 year warranty (like it is in the US) at least until a tech looks at the machine. So i can spend $293 on the part and put it in myself or take a chance on the warranty + $200 service call. I'm over half-way to a new machine. Advice? MAH5500BWW/7392...

    my mah5500bww maytag washer died on me. After trying different ways we realized that we need to call a technician to repair it. Now the problem is that it takes few days until they get here and the machine is loaded and water has not been drained. taking the soaked load from front will be messy I want to know if there is a manual way to drain the water.Thanx

    Maytag mah5500bww. The motor control board is burnt in several places. The part # is 6 2724540. I can't find this part. Is there another number or conversion kit. If so, how do I find it and do I need to replace the motor? Maytag sent a new door latch assembly, but the board was already blown. Please help.

SOURCE: Maytag Nepture MAH5500BWW burned control board

ummmm, honestly ive never replaced just the board(im an authorized maytag servicer) so our replacements have always been new, and in this case the repair kit containing both board and motor. that being said, i cant see a reason as to why you couldnt relace just the board itself, ,Ireally never found the reason why the board would burn out, but, as far as repair kit im certain that they were trying to get all circuit boards and motors back to only one model, instead of having 5 or six different boards andmotors, this will bring them all to the most recent board and motor, never was an issue with themotor, jusat that you couldnt wire in the new board without the neew wiring. As long as its the same board i cant see why that wont work. as far as the "wax motor" that was a seperate issue burning out the Top control board, total seperate then your problem,., dont really see an issue with installing your "used board"

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW Will not spin

maytag neptune washers do have a motor problem and they have a kit to replace the motor and motor controller.
when the motor fails, it wont wash or spin. most units have a 5 year parts warranty and should be replaced with a free part, but you will have to pay an authorized servicer to do this.
if it is over 5 years then i would call maytag and see if they will help you with an authorization for repair.
most of the time they will provide the part for free. just call the 800 # and ask for help. they wont send you the part but might give you some help with the parts.

By the time you have finished mucking about it will likely cost you much more than it would to have a Techo come out to give you a quote for a few dollars to see if it is all worth it as regards your budget!

Maytag mah5500bww motor/control board failure recall


I had Maytag ship a new motor and motor control board for free and installed it myself in less than an hour. There is a ten year warranty on those parts. You just have to be very firm and insist you have warranty rights by law!

Washer will wash but not spin


Sounds like the control board is bad. take the back panel off the control panel and look at the R11 resistor and see if it burnt. If it is replace the control board and the door wax motor (in the locking mechanism)

MAH5500BWW model fuse blown


You probably need the motor conversion kit 12002039. This Neptune motor / motor control board has a high failure rate. To determine this you need to remove the front cover and inspect the motor control board near the floor on right side for burnt components or a blown 10 amp fuse. If you have burnt components or a blown fuse then your motor control board has failed and needs to be replaced. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for Neptune disassembly pictures and other neptune information.
