Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6700A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Had been off balanced for a long time. Fixed that problem last month, now it doesn't want to aggitate or spin. Fills and drains (slow) but drum wont move. Makes a grinding noise, like the transmission gears aren't engaging. Thanks Mike

This machine does not have a transmission. It has a drive motor with a belt that goes directly to the tub. Open the access panel on the back of the machine and see if the sound is coming form the motor or the tub area. If it is coming from the motor, you will need to replace it with this new motor.

My whirlpool Estate washer is not draining or spinning but aggitates, what can be the problem?


Sounds like a cycle switch problem. The switch is not turning and making contact with the next cycle. It needs to be changed!

Tries to aggitate but wont everything else works


Sounds like the transmission is out. If it fills up and will pump out while spinning? Then more than likely that is it. Or could be the belt underneath. When it aggitates the belt go's in one direction then spin out it go's the other direction and turns the transmission and drum.

My maytage washer went off balance. just discovered it and it doesn't drain, spin, wash the timer works and it also fills. It just clicks. How do I fixi t?


If the inlet valve works to bring in water to the drum and still the washer does not start then the water level sensor can be defective.
You need to check on the voltage on the timer controller unit to confirm if there is a output even after the water fills up. also check the door switch , if open the washer will not start.

GE washer wont drain or spin, lid switch has been replaced and so has the timer. At the start of cycle it fills and aggitates properly.


If the machine tries to spin for a few seconds and shuts down because the tub is full of water, then - The first thing I would do is check the pump. You may have something blocking the pump or the pump could have failed. Newer models built within the last 10 - 15 years must drain their water down first before they are able to spin.

I have a MAYTAG washer that was having trouble in the spin cycle it would drain but would spin slower like the brake was coming on. Now it rinses and spins fine but during the wash cycle it fills then once...


More than likely it has a broken wire underneath that controls the spin. and agitation. I had an old Kenmore that the wire that controls these functions would break about every 6 months.

Spin/Drain cycle...Kenmore 417.40042990 Front load belt drive washer.


If the water is draining quickly (less than 30 secs) every time, than it sounds like its sensing an out of balance load, the CCU looks for this.... Before every spin cycle it goes through an out of balance routine it will do this even when empty.....It speeds up, slows down and will tumble again at least once....then speeds up ....looks at motor amps......decelerates.....looks at rate of deceleration.......Then decides if its ok to spin at the high speed...or if it should tumble again to distribute the clothes....If it cant balance itself to what it like than it will spin at a lower speed like yours is doing if its bad enough than it wont spin at all really (very slow). Im sure you checked the shocks while you were looking at the pump, but double check that there not broken at the mounts, or lots of grease at the base mount. If thats all good than you should try this......Sort a large size load of just regular tshirts and casual wear (no towels, jeans). Let me know how it spins then. Also make sure that its draining quickly every time. Sometimes the drain pump can appear fine and not be starting every time.
