Re: Maytag Neptune Front Loader Washer MAH6500AWN. Built June 2002, shows dlsplay code "do" when starting a wash.  Water starts to fill, 49 shows for minutes of cycle,  door locks,, but "do"...


I’m and owner of the FAV6800AWW and know this machine. Sorry I can’t help you with your front loader. I feel the service charge and diagnosis given to you are in left field. If no one can help you in the FAV6800AW forum try the links below.

Here is a link to tech info for your machine MAH6500AWN do a search Literature By Model I would also try reposting over in this fixya forum Problems with Maytag Neptune MAH6500A Front Load Washer? Maybe a repair person or knowledgeable owner in that forum can help you DIY the repair or give you some knowledge to possibly help control cost and time to repair.

Good luck to you.

Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off


Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

Maytag Neptune MAH-1 won't stop filling with water


A couple things may be going on here... you may not want to hear, but the Neptune has a had many "consumer related problems".

If your complaint is "will not stop filling with water" I would access your inlet water-valve (typically blue with 2 black battery looking solenoids; where your water-lines connect directly), test for continuity and replace as necessary. Sometimes inlet-water valves also go bad where the complaint is: "no water comes in at all".

No flow


Hello hedrickcari
Welcome,

You said, you are getting a no flow error code. This washer was installed today.If I have an air pocket, how do you get it out so the washer senses the water flow?

First I would unplug the washer for 5 minutes and see if it resets and clears the errors!



Make sure the door is tightly closed. (Unlike top-loaders, front-loading washing machines must be closed in order for water to begin filling. Makes a lot of sense when you think about it.)

Then make sure the machine is plugged in to a live (or working) electrical outlet. It's a good idea to check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if needed or check the fuse if you have a fuse box.

Next, turn the control dial to the proper cycle and push the START/STOP button firmly. Then turn both faucets (hot and cold) on all the way. Take a look at the inlet hoses (which go from your pipes to your washer) and straighten them out if necessary.

Turn off the faucets and then disconnect the hoses. Clean the hose filter screens to remove any blockage that could be plugging up the water line.

Then replace the filter screens, reconnect the hoses, turn the faucets back on, open and close the door, and push the START/STOP button firmly one more time.

You should be rewarded with the sound of water beginning to fill up your Maytag® Neptune® washer. If you aren't, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900.

Lg front loader


You shouldnt be able to open the door when the washer has started and for a few minutes after it gets finished. Id=f you can then you have a faulty safety switch. The only way to open it when its started is to turn the dial to stop, and wait a few minutes until the lock turns off ( you will hear a click) then you can open the door, if its filled with water, then you shouldnt open it unless you want a puddle, you can put in on spin and get the water out before opening the door

Hope that helps
