Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

F1 fuse in Motor control board??

Maytag Front load Washer Model # MAH5500BWW
Serial# 87918930AJ

We've experienced the LR code and I've been looking on-line for fix. Just pulled apart machine and have Motor Control Board out.

On the board, all looks fine, except for the F1 tube fuse. It's definately blown, but how can I remove this fuse? It appears to be pinched in-between two fixed solder points with caps on end to hold, or pinch, the fuse in there. Will I have to cut the solder points in order to get the fuse out?

My wax motor has a metal accuator pin on the left side of it. (if that's the wax motor, and not the locking device I'm looking at)

I am about to look at the upper control board to look at the R11 and Q6 that others seem to have had problems with.

Also, behind the Motor Control Board is a brown circular thing with some black on the front/top of it. It's all wrapped in a plastic bag. Is this a motor?

Thanks.

Tim

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!

Lr code on display


it is a problem with the motor .this is confirmed.

Issue
Washer stops in mid-cycle and/or flashes a code.
Warranty Standard product manufacturing warranty applies.
Action The motor drive system experienced a momentary loss of neutral feed from the power cord to the
Motor Control Board. The neutral line for the Motor Control Board passes across the water valve
solenoids. Neutral to the motor drive system can be momentarily lost If there is poor crimping of any
of the wire terminals in this circuit. This situation could result in a misdiagnosis and unnecessary
replacement of the Motor or Motor Controller Board.
Current Neptune front load washers will indicate a false locked rotor signal to the Machine Control
Board. Washers with a LED display will flash code “LR” in the display. LCD washers will display
“Locked Rotor.” The earlier built front loaders will not display a code, but simply shut down in midcycle
or will not start.
Pull each terminal of the white wire harness connected to each water valve solenoid and verify the
wire is properly stripped and crimped to the metal terminal connector of the wire harness. Make sure
the wires fit snug on the terminals of the water valve solenoids.
A product improvement has been made to the following models. The neutral wire is routed across
the pump only, and now by passes the water valve solenoids.
MAH55FLBWQ/W ..................... Series 12
MAH5500AWQ/W ..................... Series A7
MAH6500AWQ/W ..................... Series 33
MAH7500AWQ/W ..................... Series A6

Tub fills with water


replace water valve in the washer. Serial number is needed to find the correct part number. It's likely 22003834, but call any parts supplier with model/serial numbers to verify.

Good luck,
