I would be concerned about your door latch wax motor ( part # 12002535) though... See Neptune Help for more information about replacing the faulty wax motor with brown colored actuator tip before it damages your machine control board.
When the wax motor shorts out it will blow the Q6 triac and then the R11 resistor will burn and your door probably won't lock anymore as indicated by the door locked light not coming on. The next thing you will notice is that your clothes will be soaking wet after the wash cycle because the spin cycle will not work if the door does not lock...

Your machine control board is located above the dryer on the right side.

Every Maytag Neptune front loader with a timer knob (non digital) has a wax motor and all of them shipped with faulty one except the later 2000 series stacker models. You should proactively replace the wax motor with the new design (with black tip) to prevent the Q6 R11 failure on the control board. If you're too late you can try the STAGE 1 repair kit at the same site above.

To inspect your door latch wax motor on the stackers you:

  • Unplug machine
  • Remove the (2) screws holding center panel and remove panel
  • Remove the (1) center screw holding the top panel located inside compartment above washer
  • Remove the top panel to expose the door latch assembly

    I hope this helps you.

We have a Maytag Neptune front load washer/dryer combo, model MLE2000AYW. The door lock light will not turn off and the door remains locked.


IF you take out the dispenser tray you till find the cord to the door latch to release the door lock. You cannot get the door latch assembly any longer and it is one plastic cog that is the issue. However given the age of that machine and the fact that parts are not in great supply any longer, it would be a good idea to replace the whole unit.

My Maytag Neptune stackable model number mle2000ayw wont spin nor will the door lock light go on


Hi,

If the door lock light is on then is might be the "door lock enable spin switch" the plunger at the opposite end from the wax motor is not fully depressing the switch.

In the stackable it is just behing the door lock.

Remove the two middle covers (2 white phillips screws and one hex head screw on the middle of lower cover by the wires)to test place a few layers of masking tape on the end of the plunger and cycle the machine. Might also be a weak Wax motor (dark brown in color)

To be safe replacing both the things would solve your issue,

If you need furthur assistance, You can leave me comment, i may help you
