Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters.

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Maytag neptune front load washer mah5500bwq ran a service cycle got these codes d 15 and 17 15. 17. What's this mean


Since repairing washers is a hobby and not a profession, I'm not familiar with that particular washer. I know that those codes usually mean it overfilled (D15) and the door lock failed to properly engage.

If you know what you are doing, you can check the switches with an ohm meter. Please don't do this if you aren't sure how to do this safely.

What does the code od mean?


The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

Is your door lock light on when machine is in use? I am having the same issue as you and I believe it is because my door is not locking during use.
