Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Model MAH5500BWW S/N 92911529AT bought January 2003 No trouble until now. Can not close door. It acts like hitting a soft stop and will not close completely. For awhile you could slam the door and it would snap shut and all worked as should. Now cannot get door to shut at all. Seems to hang on gasket maybe. Please advise. Also, there is always water in drum. Can hear it sloshing when turning drum to find the last socks. Is this normal? Thank You, Ed Eaton Las Cruces, New Mexico

The door lock is more than likley damaged and needs to be replaced.make sure the door is not been pulled or push out of place and is lined up with the door opening.
normally you should not here any water in the unit it is more than likley cause by not draining all the way.and this can be caused by a faulty door lock.

We have a Maytag Neptune model MAH5500BWW. It recently acts like it's unbalanced. After checking the obvious things, we have replaced the strutts on the bottom. It still is unbalanced and won't spin out...


Mine was not spinning and shutting off at the 7 minute mark. I took off the door and then the front panel. I reached underneath to the pump. There is a soft black rubber hose going from the tub to the pump. I squeezed it several times and must of unplugged the pump because it worked after that. Zero$ spent.

I have a Panasonic Inverter Model NN-T664.It acts


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.


Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

How do I reset my garage door opener. It is a Coromaster 2000 motor. The closing and opening setting are out and the motor only stops due to resistance.


The Coromaster 2000 does not operate off limit switches. It has a quarter-revolution optical pulse counter. To re-program the open and close limits do the following: Ensure that the door is open at least a couple of feet. Press the reset button once or twice Short out pushbutton and common and hold until close limit and then release. Door should stop at your new close limit. Wait 5 seconds. Short out pushbutton and common and door will open. Hold the short until open limit and then release. Limits should now be set.

Keypad outside garage door


Have you checked the battery in the keypad itself? It is usually a specialty battery that you would need to purchase at a hardware store.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
