Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6500A Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Will not spin to rinse and makes a churning noise/clogged drain for softener?

I have a Neptune Maytage Frontloader MAH-3, it has decided it does not want to spin the water out of the clothes, and when it tries to spin it makes an awful churning noise. Second problem: the area I put my softener has apparently become clogged. I have taken the tub out and cleaned it, but I think it is further in the machine where I cannot see. Too many problems for a machine only in use 3 years. - Thank you

When my washer did that, they came out and put in a new pump etc, and it did it again within a few months. What fixes mine, at least for the 2 years I had only that problem, was to unplug and replug the wires that go into the motor board (that'sthe one under the wash tub, not the one behind the dials. Then it would be fixed for a month or two. The wire harness (and I never pinpointed exactly which one, just did them all) would come a little lose. I took the front part off the washer so that I have constant access to that part. This last time when it did it, tho, this did not fix the problem. Instead, it seems that my wax motor for the door lock had failed, and I cooked R11. As a temporary fix, I cut the R11 out of the control board (the one behind the dials), and inserted a popsicle stick into the microswitch further from the wax motor, so the door thinks it is locked and it will spin. This results in the washer not shutting down at the end of the cycle on its own (thinks the door is still locked) so you have to manually turn it off. Since I already had the front off the machine, I just had to undo the screws to the left and right at the top to raise the top of the machine to insert my popsicle stick. It is a lovely machine, isn't it? I have the MAH3000 also.

Haier HLP21N Washer will not rinse, spin or drain. Last load worked perfectly, not even a hint of a problem brewing. Next load (a few days later) filled & washed per normal. And did nothing else. No...


Suggestion: In all probability it is your filter which is clogged. You did not mention you were periodically cleaning it out. I hv to locate where the filter is; meanwhile you can see as to where it is by referring to your manual. Will try to get back to you.

Model MAH 7800 drain pump will not run, door locks, tub spins, water drains by gravity


Well your drain pump needs attention for sure. There could be an object lodged against propellers or it may need to be relaced. Try unplugging the connector that goes to the pump and plugging back in. Also try tapping the the motor part of the drain assembly while in spin cycle before replacing. Good luck.

Washer won't drain maytag neptune washer MAH-3


Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. You can take a flashlight, remove the hose from the pump and look into the suction port of the pump. Check for anything clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers for broken or missing blades and ensure that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective and will need replaced. Hopefully it is just a clogged pump or drain line. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Maytag washer MAH 5500bww seems to run OK, but it does not pump out all the water(pumps out some) at the end of the cycles, churns remaining water during spin


Open the rear panel and remove the drain pump and clean it.
If there is nothing in the pump, check the drain motor for 18 ohms with a volt/ohm meter.
Not 18 ohms, replace the motor.

MAYTAG NEPTUNE MAH9700AWW continues to fill on rinse, code ''oe'',


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual, it may not be there, they want a tech to come by to make more $). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum) Of course some direct the hose into sink, fine. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me nice or not at all. Happy spinning! Nice to watch the machine spin, not your head!
