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 motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness. This kit takes about an hour to install. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for step by step pictures on how to disassemble your Neptune.

Yes Neptune Dude told me the solution that I was not looking forward to, but I still love my neptune, so I will take it to a professional to have it fixed, it's worth it. Plus I got a very good deal on it when I got it! Thanks, Sam

Washing Machine at the start of cycle starts to fill with water for about 5 seconds and then drains starts to fill again and drains as before,after about 10 Mins Machine cycle ends.


Two things to check, maybe the fill hoses are clogged taking too long to fill therefore it begins to drain or you have the drain hose down nthe drain toon far creating a siphon effect!

Can't get machine to start a cycle. When press the start/pause button, the door open light begins to flash. After a few seconds, it stops flashing and the start/pause button begins flashing. I have checked...


It is hard to tell if there is no model number. Normally, WP machine has error code appeared on the display. I guess your unit does not have display, so the combination flashing is a signal to tell you what wrong with the system. You can check the service manual normally taps inside the unit.

My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.


Washer Not Filling:


  • Door Not Closed and Locked
    • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
  • Delayed Start Feature
    • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
  • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
    • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
    • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

Dishwasher starts then pauses and drains.


Fixed! I had the issue where the cycle would start, the KUDS30IXBL8 would hum 4-5 times and then drain. Plastic folk pieces jammed in the disposer. These instructions took a few minutes (only 5 screws and a couple clips) to figure out how to take it apart, and it only took 60 seconds to put back together.

My frigidaire front load washer will start a wash, complete the first cycle but then stop and flash all the lights and beep continously until I press "start" or "cancel". If I press "start" again it just...


Hello there:
If your cycle does not complete or The cycle doesn't advance
When the cycle should advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. than check the cold water supply line and the filter

Start flashes and will not begin wash cycle


My dishwasher Model is 665 15891790 and the serie #FG3907905. After programing my dishwasher and pressing the start button, it fills with water, but when it is due to start the sensing light comes on. I have notice that the ring under the watering arm on the bottom of the machine seams to be cracked. Could that be the problem for the machine not starting its' cycle. Thank you.

Maytag Centennial: Not starting, maybe lid lock issue? How to install new magnetic lid latch? then is replacing lid lock next or could it be something entirely different? Help, please, and THANK YOU! I have a Maytag Centennial washer MVWC450XW3 that quit working last week. In hindsight, I could see that there had been a history of "stuff" going on with the washer, all around the lid lock;i.e. - last time it worked I had to select a couple of different cycles before it finally started. SO Far, I have tried to get the diagnostic codes but failed a bit at that. I THINK that I was getting an F5E1 error. I was however at least able to access the diagnostic menu, and notice TWO things: No matter what, the Lid Locked LED never comes on, ever. Next thing I notice is when I do a short cycle diagnostically, it never agitates or spins. It fills various temp water, does not agitate, then it seems to suck the water back out. IN the end, I ordered just the magnetic part of the lid lock (the part that is actually on the lid) because I could see mine was rusted all the way away, but am not too sure how to put it on. Therefore I just put it in the slot where it would go if I had installed it. Incidentally II asked my ma if she had noticed anything going on with the washer and she said No at first but then with prompting (she's 81) allowed that she had indeed noticed something wrong with the lid shutting so she had cleaned out that "little hole"{ very well and oiled it to make sure it was working. So again my two main questions are: How to install the lid latch, do I need to take out all of the screws around the glass? and Should I next move on to buying a lid lock part or could it be something entirely different?
