    Machine stops with a LR error at the spin cycle and will not spin. Husband had to wring cloths out by hand and then took forever to dry - now I cannot even get it to begin the wash cycle.

Went through the test program in the installation/service manual, which was taped to the back of the washer. It indicated that the drain .pump was not operating. Checked voltage to pump- OK at 116V. Pump was stalled and getting warm. Dismantled motor from pump housing and found impeller was stalled by a broken toothpick. Reassembled and washer now operating normally.

Washer walks when it spins


It is probably due to the unbalanced load in the machine and
when spinning,it will make this motion.Try to balance the load
better when washing.

Draining neptune washer


The sloshing sounds you hear are supposed to be there. Actually, it was there when you first purchased the washer and had never used it before. It's part of the balance system. When the machine goes into high speed spin, the balance system kicks in. The water portion of it is forced outward by centrifugal force. Now when the machine slows down and stops, the water settles back down so that when you reach in and turn the drum by hand, you can hear it sloshing about.

Hope this helps,
SG

I have the neptune front loader. The lock light wont come on and the door wont lock. During a wash cycle the water just started comming out of the door. If I hold the stop/start button manually the light...


hi there,

you have a door latch problem. the reason you can still push on the button is because this particular washer has a time delay function. i would recommend taking a look at the latch itself and possibly the wax motor that runs the latch.

Wont spin or drain


The drain pump is jammed or clogged up. Remove the filter cover and check for bobby pins, coins or bra wires. If clean, remove drum to pump hose from the pump and check for any foreign matter. Try to turn the pump impeller by hand. It should turn freely. If pump is not free, replace it.
