Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers Machine Control Board Repair


Component failures on Maytag Neptune Font Load Washers such as the pressure switch, wax motor, hot and cold water valve solenoids, timer motor, 24 VDC circuit, and the overall electrical buffer circuit have significant effect on the machine control board. Failed resistors on the machine control board can be used to determine failed washer components. Resistor R9 is associated with the pressure switch, R11 is for the wax motor, R51 for the hot water valve solenoid, R52 for the timer motor, R53 for the cold water valve solenoid, R143 for the 24 VDC circuit, and R162 for the overall electrical buffer circuit. The TRIAC Q6 is also associated with the wax motor while TRIACS Q3, Q9, and Q17 are for the timer motor, cold water valve solenoid, and hot water valve solenoid respectively. These TRIACS must also be replaced should the corresponding resistors fail or burn out especially when there's no power going to the associated component.

The most common problem experienced is the failure of the wax motor as indicated by the inability of the washer to advance to the high speed spin cycle with the "door locked" light not lit. Replace the TRIAC Q6 and the resistor R11 on the machine control board to get the machine back into operation. Use MAC97A6 or NTE5656 for Q6 and a 3.9 kilo-ohms carbon or carbon film resistor for R11. It is recommended to install a 1/2-ampere pico fuse in series with the wax motor to prevent damage to Q6 and R11 should the wax motor shorts out and fails again.

Replacement of the wax motor is a must before installing the repaired or new machine control board to prevent damage to the repaired or new part. Make sure the wiring harness connections of washer components are good and snug fit. Reseat the connectors several times to clean off corrosion build up both on the connectors and terminals.

New whirlppol frontload. less then 6 mos & broken 4 the 2nd time. they say its computor board. do u know if this is a prob w/ them?


The problem with the computor board, the CCU (it's actually just a simple circuit board) is that there are cold solder joints where the relays and the spade connectors connect to the circuit board. Have those cold solder joints touched-up and you should be ready to go.

Maytag mah5500bww motor/control board failure recall


I had Maytag ship a new motor and motor control board for free and installed it myself in less than an hour. There is a ten year warranty on those parts. You just have to be very firm and insist you have warranty rights by law!

Display does not light up at all


If the 120VAC wahser service outlet has power and the machine LED Control Console for the FAV6800AW or LCD screen for the FAV9800AW appeares to have no power then I feel you have a Control Board failure. If you post your model number we can give you and aproxmate cost of the Control Board. The Control Board is under warranty for 5 yr. If you call Maytag customer service at 1-800-688-9900 they will need your Model Number and Serial number located on the rear top right of the console.

The above machine types do not have an internal fuse or circuit breaker to check.

Maytag Nepture MAH5500BWW burned control board


ummmm, honestly ive never replaced just the board(im an authorized maytag servicer) so our replacements have always been new, and in this case the repair kit containing both board and motor. that being said, i cant see a reason as to why you couldnt relace just the board itself, ,Ireally never found the reason why the board would burn out, but, as far as repair kit im certain that they were trying to get all circuit boards and motors back to only one model, instead of having 5 or six different boards andmotors, this will bring them all to the most recent board and motor, never was an issue with themotor, jusat that you couldnt wire in the new board without the neew wiring. As long as its the same board i cant see why that wont work. as far as the "wax motor" that was a seperate issue burning out the Top control board, total seperate then your problem,., dont really see an issue with installing your "used board"

Problem with Maytag MAH2400 AWW


As for the user whose machine will not drain and sounds as though a chain is clanking, the solution is probably a coin caught in the drain pump. I just had the same problem. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.
