LR is a locked rotor. Usually when I've gotten this error code in the past, you have to replace the motor control board and motor as a kit. However, if this kit has to be installed due to a bad motor, the motor carries a 5 year warranty. If it has to be replaced due to a bad board, the board only has a 2 year warranty. The snag is they have to be replaced together as neither of the old parts is made anymore. I can tell you already the motor/ board kit costs about $300 just for the part. However, since these are expensive machines, I would recommend having a maytag authorized tech come out if the unit is less than 5 years old. It would be worth the service call (and armed with this knowledge) to see if the part can't be replaced under warranty. (wouldn't be a bad idea to have your owners manual ready to show that the motor has a 5 year warranty on it as well) Most warranty companies don't know from model to model which parts are under warranty without the owners manual.

Maytag Neptune front loader, model # MAH5500BWW had a digital error code reading Lr. Will not agitate or spin out.


the LR code means "Locked Rotor". when this happens the cause is one of two items. 1) the circuit boardat the top of the unit has lost connection to the motor and its controlboard at the bottom (connector loose) or 2) the motor and or controlboard at the bottom have trashed and need to be replaced (P/N12002039).
Hope that helps,
Thanks,
Lee

I have Maytag Neptune front loader washer. When


Hi.

Error LR means Locked Rotor.

Either the motor is faulty, there is a wiring problem, or the control assembly is faulty.

Try tripping the circuit breaker to reset the machine, if code comes back a technician must have a look at the motor.

Neptune - has Lr displayed where time remaining for wash usually displays. Doesn't finish.


Hello there
The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, though not always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on the Motor Control Board.

Blown Fuse on a Maytag Neptune Washer Motor Control Board (click to enlarge) Either way, it means just one thang: a new motor and motor control board kit are in your future.
