SOURCE: Maytag Neptune washer model #MAH4000AWW,

Check out your 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.

These kits are offered on the www.neptunewaxmotor.com order form and they ship UPS Ground.

This kit takes about an hour to install.


Don't forget to see the info on the website regarding the defective door latch wax motor that will eventually fail and damage your machine control board.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW will not drain all the water out.

The First comment here was absolutely right! Thanks! save a lot of $$$. In my case there was a piece of rubber that was keeping the propeler of the pump motor from spining, that's why the water won't drain.

SOURCE: maytag neptune MAH4000AWW Very loud noise

I found this on line ... 6/15/09 . Does your Maytag Neptune front loader sound like a runaway freight train when it is in high speed spin cycle? 2. Is your Neptune getting so loud that you cannot be in the same room while it is spinning your clothes? It sounds like your bearings may need some attention if you answered YES to the questions See www.neptunebearing.com ... Frank frankbusch@comcast.net

Washer won't spin


You need to check this part of you machine:

Test the lid switch
Test the timer control
Test the centrifugal switch
Test the water level switch
Inspect the motor coupler
Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
Test the motor
Inspect the pulley
Test the transmission

Check this parts this are the some cause to not spinning.

Strange growling sounds on rinse and spin cycle


I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.

See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.

Most likely the motor control unit, the MCU controls the timer (loop circuit). Best way to check is to just pull the MCU out and visually inspect it for burned components, although it is not always visible. You may need to make some involved voltage readings to verify.

Maybe you over-loaded, or you did not shut the door properly. Try reading the users' manual.

It helps trying to actually weigh your dirty linen. Try to wash within what is mentioned in your manual. Also see that the door is closed firmly. Would be useful if you'd post back results.....
