Estimated time 2minutes blinking with an "F" what does this mean?
Just as it sounds. When I start a wash cycle all seems fine but at the 2min mark the washer starts beeping and the estimated time light blinks 2 min and F. Ive tried pressing cancel and it goes back to 10min remaining so I press start and at 2min it does this again.....it is just a cycle....literally....what do I do?
Re: Estimated time 2minutes blinking with an "F" what...
Are you certain its not blinking F 02 I have a similar problem and the only way I can get it to finish is to hit pause and let it sit overnight befor hitting start again, I cleaned out all the huses and the pump filter which were a mess wet lint and change respectivly, This helped (now I get one load done before it stops)

Rotating blinking lights in the display is probably an indication that the Wrinkle Prevent option has been selected. Wrinkle Prevent will continue to tumble the dryer without heat after the cycle has ended to help prevent wrinkles from setting in. When this option is selected by pressing the Wrinkle Prevent button on the control panel, the display will count down the estimated cycle time; when the cycle ends, the display will show lights blinking in a circular (or actually rectangular) motion.
To deactivate, simply press the Wrinkle Prevent button again so the light is not illuminated.
this machine sounds to have a computer board problem I have a calypso washer also and i had the same problem so I ordered both computer boards and replaced them and everything was working like new , I haven't had any further problems since
Answer to your question "Is there any way to set them different?" Short answer is no. The Maytag Neptune like many other washers that display a time of cycle first start with an estimated time this relays a lot on the last cycle ran. But, more importantly it also takes into consideration other washing options. For example, lets say that your quick wash cycle used to only display 35 min. now if you select an extra rinse option the time will increase from that 35 min. to a higher amount of time. This is due to the longer time it takes to go through a second rinse cycle. The MAH5500 if I'm not mistaken also has a heater in it so there are options such as sanitize which takes 120 degree hot incoming water (suggested temp. for hot water heaters) and heats it to approx. 165 degrees. And as you can imagine this takes a washer some time to do this (increasing wash time). If you would like to lower washing time check the washing options and remove any that are not needed at that time; pay close attention to extra rinse cycles and the soil levels that are selected. Hope this helps. Cheers.
i have the same problem. the transmission/brake assembly is worn out. the stopping and starting problem... I have that too, that was a dry solder joint on the circuit board. i found it because if I pressed on the area of the panel to the left of the cycle select knob, it would shut off immediately. I soldered it back up and it's fine. Still working on fixing the transmission problem, the parts store wants 300 bucks for the part but looking at the GE website, the tranny might be under extended warranty.
To avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the
washer, press Options and Select at the same time and
hold for 10 seconds until “LOC” is displayed alternately
with the estimated cycle time. To unlock the controls,
press Options and Select at the same time and hold 10
seconds until ”LOC” is no longer displayed.
