    Lr is the error for a locked rotor. The machine is trying to run the motor but is unable. Usually this the motor control board that is at fault. The first thing to do is make sure the belt is on. After that some tests are have to be made to determine what is going on. Im going to lay out some instructions in case you want to get into this thing. You will have to remove the door by removing the screws holding the hinges on. Same thing for the spacers on the other side. Lift up and remove the door. Pull the front panel forward and lift off. Once the panel is off, set the door back on and close it. Unplug the washer. On the motor control board, bottom right, pull the JP4 harness connector from the board. Plug the washer back in and make sure the door is closed. Press delicates and heavy soil 3 seconds to activate the service mode. Now press the rinse key. Make sure the door is locked by pressing the max extract key. Now press the stain cycle to start motor control test. The motor should run rotating the drum at 50rpms. If the motor doesn't run, check for voltage at the 3 wire harness, MN4, should be 120V. If you don't have the voltage, problem is in the main board. If you have that voltage, then the problem lies either in the motor control, or motor itslelf. On the motor harness, 7 pin connector on the board (middle). Between the brown, white and black wires should all read 6 to 7.5 ohms. Between the 2 grays 150 to 195 ohms. If that checks, then it's the board. If it doesn't check, it's the motor. Ohm checks should be done with the power off.

Washer wont finish cycle and display reads "LR"


Hello todd.... This is a common problem with the neptune. It means that the machine needs a new motor and a new motor control board kit. If you are under warranty do a repair. If not, get an estimate before you go ahead and repair it. Joe

Keep getting Lr halts with even the lightest loads. Takes hours to do one load restarting, adjusting, restarting.


This is a common issue with earlier Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers due to a momentary loss of motor control neutral feed from the power cord and result to the shutting down of the washer in the middle of the cycle. The neutral feed line needs to be checked for poor connection. Check the tip I posted regarding this problem and how to address it.

you need to replace the motor and the motor control board,it comes in a kit,call your parts store give them the model number and the first two on the serial.common problem with the neptune,the wire harness that plugs into the motor is strait down,moisture runs down the harness and gets into the connectors,it's around 200 bucks for the kit

Neptune - has Lr displayed where time remaining for wash usually displays. Doesn't finish.


Hello there
The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, though not always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on the Motor Control Board.

Blown Fuse on a Maytag Neptune Washer Motor Control Board (click to enlarge) Either way, it means just one thang: a new motor and motor control board kit are in your future.

I've had the same problem with a Neptune MAH3000. I replaced the mother board to no avail. I replaced the timer control to no avail. I then replaced the door lock assembly (wax motor, door switch, etc.) and problem solved. Luckily, I had another machine that I could rob parts from.
