Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Recently you helped me with a problem with the control board of my Maytag neptune washer. The motor control board burned, and you adviced me to buy a new kit of motor and board, as the original pcontrol board is discontinued
I have been able to buy a used control board of exactly the same specs as the original one from an old washing machine.
Before I install the used control board, I would like to ask for your help in understanding what is the original cause for the burned board. I have been reading that the wax motors of other Maytag neptune machines were shorting out, causing the boards to burn. In all the literature I checked, I have seen that my model, the MAH5500BWW is not afected by this failure.
I enclose a picture of the complete circuit, of the specifications label of the circuit, and also a closeup of the area of the circuit that burned.
Cold you help me understand what caused the original failure, so I do not burn the replacement board? Many thanks, you have provided great advice so far.
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"
