My Maytag Neptune washer is not spinning and I tried only Spin cycle for 12 minutes and gave LR error message. Pl help?


Hi, the Maytag Neptune front load washer LR or Locked Rotor error indicates and issue with the motor drive system. The motor control board is located near the floor on the right side. See Neptune Disassembly help to remove the door and front panel to get access, if needed.

I would unplug machine, remove all connectors and reinstall a few times and retry machine in case of any oxidation on the connectors. Also, check the belt and make sure it has not popped off. There is a rear access cover you can remove to take a peek.

In addition, there is a motor drive test you can perform to see if the inner tub will rotate at 50 rpms. You should have a document with your machine that instructs how to perform this simple test and it could be located in the top console.

Depending on which machine you have... If the motor control board has failed then you may have to replace the motor and motor control board since Maytag redesigned them because they were having reliability issues with them and they decided to change the motor technology they were using. See maytag maytag Neptune motor conversion kit for more info.

I hope this helps...

WATER IS NOT COMING IN THE WASHER BIN. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THE WATER SUPPLY IN MY HOME.


Might be a bad control board - particularly if neither hot nor cold works. This board actuates the relays that allow water into the machine.

Check inside the washer, there is probably a service instruction inside either the front or rear panel with a debug checklist that provides the specific things to check & measure (you'll need a digital multimeter).

No one that I've found provides information for component-level debug of the control board.

Don't be surprised if the control board is built by someone other than the company that "made" the washer.

Maytag Neptune MLE2000AYW won't spin, motor wont ever move during motor control test in service document, I never get any output on the motor output leads to drive the motor. Switching power supply just...


Three places I check for appliance parts, besides the local appliance repair store, are:

RepairClinic: http://www.repairclinic.com/Circuit-Board-Or-Timer-Parts?s=t-MLE2000AYW-%3d%3dc13

AppliancePartsPro: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=47166

ApplianceZone: http://www.appliancezone.com/SearchProducts.aspx?id=MLE2000AYW&ctl00%24MainContent%24btnSearch=GO%21

It sounds like you have gone through the tests in the Service Book, and usually when the motor won't spin it is the control board, the motor, or the wiring harness. If you are getting no power from the leads on the control board to the motor, I would replace the control board. If you had or have any codes that come up on the machine, what are they? I have had to replace many motor control boards, and everytime it gets the machine going again. Only a few times did I actually have to replace the motor. It sounds like your motor is fine though. The most common cause of failure in these motor control boards is electrical surge. Many control boards now have built in surge protection to help prevent failures.

MAYTAG MAH6500AWW-WASHER WILL NOT AGITATE/SPIN


Hello,

Check out the motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt components. If you have either... then you will need the the new 12002039 motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness.

See http://www.neptunehelp.com/index_files/Page667.htm.

This kit takes about an hour to install.

Don't forget to replace your door latch wax motor. See www.neptunehelpsong.com to hear a funny song explaining the faulty door latch failure.

Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW Will not spin


maytag neptune washers do have a motor problem and they have a kit to replace the motor and motor controller.
when the motor fails, it wont wash or spin. most units have a 5 year parts warranty and should be replaced with a free part, but you will have to pay an authorized servicer to do this.
if it is over 5 years then i would call maytag and see if they will help you with an authorization for repair.
most of the time they will provide the part for free. just call the 800 # and ask for help. they wont send you the part but might give you some help with the parts.

re original issue, see if R11 is burned. if so, need to change R11 resistor and associated triac, and probably wax motor so it won't do it again. temporary fix just cut out R11, door won't lock. if your model won't spin that way, depress actuator for microswitch from door wax motor. instructions on web.
