Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW will not spin out. Unplugged to reset and all lights will blink and set to pause. When you press start, it eventually clicks like it is locking to start, machine turns off and resets to pause. I did notice an error message of PF on the screen at one time. How do I get it to spin and operate?

It sounds like a door latch problem. the door latch has a small "wax" motor in it that causes a lot of problems. unless you have a bunch of time to spend learning about how it works i would suggest calling a professional.

Washer will not start...indicator lights are on. We have unplugged and tried to start by pressing "cotton/sturdy" and the start/pause. Cannot change settings


Do you hear a double beep sound when depressing any of the other buttons? If so you most likely have a defective key panel. If nothing happens at all, it may be the home control board (inside the control panel). Before you replace the board, try this diagnostics test,
Press and hold the hand wash key and the heavy soil keys for 3 seconds. The display should go to "00" next press the spin only key and the machine should run a quick spin test. When this completes press the "off" key to exit service mode.
Now try the machine, and hopefully you have cleared it's software glitch.
Good luck to you!!

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.

Very loud spin cycle


The link below, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, shows that the rear bearing comes with the outer tub only and is very pricey! I have been unable to find a service agency that offers just the bearing. Very aggravating. www.maytag.com would be a good place to define your issue.

Unplug the unit for 5 minutes to reset the control. if the control continues to remain locked, this will confirm board failuer and, you will need to replace this control board.

If your washer doesn't seem to work at all, check these:

No power
Lid switch
No power Check to see whether power is getting to the washing machine. Is it plugged in? Has a fuse blown or is a circuit breaker tripped?

Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
