Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater

Maytag neptune MAH6500aww

This washer is about three years old and the only problem we have had up to this time is the replacement of the boot because it had been torn.

Now it will run fine until the rinse cycle where it runs down to 3 or 4 minutes and then will jump back up to 8 or ten minutes. It will not progress to the spin cyle. Any ideas on what the problem can be?

    When my husband stops the machine and manually changes the control panel to spin, it does go to the spin cycle. It does not transition from rinse to spin. It just adds additional time to the rinse cycle.

This problem can be solved easier by calling a service men... because it involves opening up of control panels.. and other stuffs... which i think u will not be familiar with... also it involves electricity and water.. where both shdnt get in contact..

Thankyou

Check your drain hose. Sounds like the washer drain hose is siphoning.
There should be a air gap at the end of the hose so it can not siphon.
Let me know what you find and whether this fixes it, otherwise I have a different idea.

    Did you actually check the hose or even try cleaning it?

This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Please use this link to order any pat of the washing machine:

  • If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.
    If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

    Smelly clothes after washing. We have one of the models that was recalled for the same problem. Maytag Neptune - MAH6500AWW


    I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

    MAYTAG MAH6500AWW-WASHER WILL NOT AGITATE/SPIN


    Hello,

    Check out the 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 12002039 motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness.

    See http://www.neptunehelp.com/index_files/Page667.htm.

    This kit takes about an hour to install.

    Don't forget to replace your door latch wax motor. See www.neptunehelpsong.com to hear a funny song explaining the faulty door latch failure.
