Try using a different outlet in your house, with a decent quality extension cord. it might be a problem with the outlet or circuit breaker reset switch.
if it still does it on another outlet in the house then it might be a bad motor.

Washer fills and drains at the same time.

Check for congealed soap in the Air Bell which is at the other end of the pipe for the pressure switch

My Neptune Top Load fills the water, the motor doesn't start.

If i understand correctly you are stating the breaker shut down which means the house breaker for the outlet power kicked out. You might try plugging something else into the outlet to see if it also kicks out, say a vacuum cleaner of a drill.

You need a amp clamp to test for something shorted or grounded (or ohm out windings) which requires trained do not want to get a shock

My kenmore elite keeps showing f20 near the end of my wash cycle

f20 can be your fill a fill hose problem, flowmeter problem.
But first i want you to check you hoses
turn the water off
take the hoses off the back of the washer
get a bucket
put the hoses in the bucket
turn the water back at a time so that you don't get blasted with water.
Do both hot/cold come out with good pressure?
If yes try
take your lid off the washer between the inlet valve and your dispenser is there a white plastic piece one end going to the valve and one to the dispenser.
IF yes take it off and blow through it.
put back on and see if the code comes back
If yes
Then it is possible you may have a bad pressure switch.
let me know how it goes
if you take the kick panel off by removeing the t15 torx screws you will find the tech sheet to help you

HI - I was given a Maytag Neptune MAH5500B - just installed it and it does not work! It just makes a humming sound but after 7 minutes it is still not filled with water or rotating or anything. The door...

ok check to make sure you have the water turned on
thsat 7 mins is just about right
it is shutting down on slow fill
, the humming kinda tells me the water valve is opening properly
and calling for water
please check the screen and source
let me know

Frigidaire wont fill,just keeps draining

Your drain hose must be 36 inches from the ground. Any lower and the water siphons out.

Frigidaire washer won't spin, belt seems to be ok. What else can I look for ?, Thank you. e-mail , OSUOWNSFOOTBALL@YAHOO.COM

Check your outlet filters, clean out. The machine will not spin if the filter is blocked. Also check your inlet into the machine. Clean screens on both ends of the pipes. Refit carefully. If you have manual, check for filter cleaning.
