Neptune front load washer

We have moved to France with a Neptune washer and would like to change the power supply from USA electricity to France electric standards. From the manual and the back of the washer it appears that this is possible. How do I figure out exactly what I must change?

Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers Front Panel and Top Cover Removal


Most of the internal components of Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the machine.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

Remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the machine.

The internal components of the machine can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers (Maytag Neptune Dryers). The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

After a complete cycle the drum fills (slowly) with water leaving clothes soaked.maytag Neptune front loader


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Take all power off the washer then turn one or the other off and see which one is causing the problem. Sorry but it needs replacing. If it only happens when there is power supplied to the washer, a service call is required to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding the correct voltage to the valve ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The machine was in use and we had a short power failure. Now it will not turn back on. Please help.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Check the supply socket if you have not already done so by plugging in a kettle for instance. If no power check all of your breakers/fuses (sorry I'm English!). Does your washer have a fuse in its plug? Check that. If all OK then I'm sorry but it looks like a service call is required ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.

Need a manual for washer model # mah8700aww


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Unfortunately this forum does not supply any type of manual, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C.

Hi! I have a Maytag Neptune front loading washer machine. On a few occasions I have found a small amount of water in the drum before starting my weekly laundry. Today when I went to start my laundry...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a water control valve not closing completely- its no power/fail position is closed.
Whichever it is, hot or cold, needs replacing!

Most appliances have a door lock or a mico switch. this is the first port of call for the power to supply the w/machine.Safety measures??? go back to basics,is the door locking, any power to the going to the electronics. a door. Change faulty components???
