I have a Maytag model MAH5500B that starts to fill , stops and LR appears in indicator lights. Any suggestions?


remove the belt from the motor pulley and make sure motor spins freely,check the 3 windings with an ohmmeter for appx 8-11 ohms each,then check all connections everywhere by removing and reinserting them,then try to run the diagnostics from the tech sheet inside the washer,if all this fails then replace the M.C.U. motor control unit

Fills with water then code LR comes up and it does nothing


Hello tombs72,

Unffortunately the LR code means locked rotor. Normally this requires replacing the motor and motor control board (sold together as one unit). I hope this answers your question.

Thanks,

Washer fills with water and thats it


Possible a bad motor control board. Depending on the age of the washer, you may need to replace the motor control board and the motor as a kit. Also be sure to test that the motor control board is getting power, I've seen cases of the motor/ motor control failing and taking out the main control also. The tech sheet is in the console and should walk you through the steps.

Wont work, flashes LR


rapoyner The "LR" error code means "locked rotor". It appears on the display after the machine has repeatedly tried to turn the motor. The cause of the problem could be the motor itself, the motor control board, the main control board or the wiring. If your washer is less then five years old most likely the parts are still under Maytag warranty. It has very sophisticated design and I wood recommend to call the Maytag authorized repair man even if the warranty is already expired. Gendos

Nf pops up on the screen & the washer stops


The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time (especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope this helps you.
