Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

MAH5500BWW, serial number 73913001ZS CONTROL BOARD

Our washer was incorrectly loaded (unbalanced load), and apparently after many attempts by the motor to move the load at the spinning cycle, the control board burned (we took what we think is the control board out of the machine, and we could clearly see where the circuit burned).

I have called the Maytag service center, and also have searched in the internet for the part number of this circuit, so I can buy it and replace it, but I cannot find it. I have used all reference numbers in the label of the circuit (see last picture), but have not been able to locate the part.

I moved out of the USA last year. I also had a local tecnical service trying to fix the problem, but they do not have the part available. Could you help me locating the number part, and let me know how could I buy it on the internet?

I attach 5 pictures for reference.

Many thanks,

Fred

LG WaveForce top load washing machine flashes unbalanced on every single load. Even when run completely empty. a single load can take up to 6 hours to complete.Manufacturer nonresponsive. Solutions?


LG issued a recall on certain waveforce washers due to the unbalanced error codes. You may have a washer that is affected. Contact LG at 855-400-4639, and have you model number and serial number at hand to see if you need a software update.

My washer's digital time screen changes from the time remaining to a symbol that looks like "UL".


This error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected.

Click the following to learn more about unbalanced loads in the BravosTM washers. The example is for an impeller washer but is applicable to washers with agitators.

Is the wash load balanced?

If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause.

Is the washer level? Does the washer rock when pushed against the corners?

If the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened. See the Installation Instructions for details.

To remove the error display, press Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel once.

Error code UE


Hi,

UE Refers that the Unit is Unbalanced. Take out the clothes out of the washer and then Run the washer. Does it Spin?

If yes, then it might be Unbalanced Load. Try to Load Small Clothes. If not, or if the Error is Appearing again and Again, Control Board or the Sensor is at Fault. You cannot Test the Control Board or the Sensor but usually Sensor is the Common Problem with Most of the LG Washers.

So, First Change the Sensor. If Problem Persists, Change the Control Board. On Most Models, Sensor would be Located near the Front of the Unit on the Side of the tub.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Kenmore - elite washer show unbalanced on spin


The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.



It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.



The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.



The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE

NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.



There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.



NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.



If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

Tub fills with water


replace water valve in the washer. Serial number is needed to find the correct part number. It's likely 22003834, but call any parts supplier with model/serial numbers to verify.

Good luck,

Uc code error


uc code means unbalanced condition. My research shows this as being an unbalanced load or a faulty control board.
Make sure your load is balanced, otherwise you may have to replace the control board.
