Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a maytag neptune front loader coin operated washer. There is no readout on the display board( Nothing ) If I take off the service door an erroe code d-5 appears which according to my manual is a blocked coin mechanism. I checked the unit and it appears O.K. and even changed the optic sensor (wiring harness).Nothing works so far. I can run a test run of a few minuits ny removing the service door and the the whole display lites up if I push delicates. The I can push any other button and a test run will work. After the test run the reverts back to being blank.Model # is MAH21PDDWW

    The motors work fine once I get them to go. The problem is electrical. When I open the service cover ( coin operated ) error code d-5 appears whick is a jammed coin . I pulled the unit and it is clear alsochanged the optic harness that connects to the coin mechanism. I can run a test run for a few min by opening service door and pushing the delicate button and the another on ie.colors etc. but after that the display goes blank again

    That sounds a little more like it may be the problem but the fact still remains that there is no displays on the circuit board. It is supposed to read $2.00 and then flash to $2.50 for a super wash, but the display is blank except if I run a test cycle. If I put coins in the machine they go right to the coin box without registering.

    I'm not sure if your solution is correct or not but it does appear to be the most reasonable,
    Thank You

The fault is obvoiusly in the control center. The problem is likely a part causing a shor or a contact. This jams the electronic and may be the cause for the blank display.

If you are a tech doing the repair for a customer better to replace the whole control centre, which cost is about $100.

If you are in no hurry you can replace parts bit by bit, starting from door, then optical assembly etc.

Here the parts.

I have a maytag front loader and the start button does on stay on, therefore door button will not stay on to lock door. I have to hold button in so that washer will start filling up with water but then...

This sounds like a motor control or a main control board problem. If this is a older washer, but less than 10 years old,that hasn't been updated with a new motor and control board assembly, the parts may be covered under the motor warranty. You need to call a qualified service tech to determine if this is the case.

Neptune - has Lr displayed where time remaining for wash usually displays. Doesn't finish.

Hello there
The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, though not always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on the Motor Control Board.

Maytag Neptune front load washer ??? Is there a filter ???

I was having that problem with smell too and I was told not to completely close the door when the washer is not in use to allow for air flow. When the door is always closed it does not allow for air flow and a mildew smell will develop. I keep mine open when it is not in use now and I do not have that problem anymore.
