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.

Incorrect times on wash cycles

you dont need to reset the times, all that has changed is the soil type. in example, light, regular or heavy. that is what causes the times to change.
you just need to push the options button until it shows the type of cycle you want.
also make sure you have the proper cycle selected and then look to see what other options are selected. you just have too many options turned on, so look at the controls to see what is different then you remember.

My Maytag Neptune washer stopped in mid cycle

Try spin only cycle. Should drain water then spin. If that doesn't work it may be the power outage started as a power spike and fried your control board. Good luck.

We have a maytag commercial

well logically as superintendent you would be contacting the manufacturer of the machine and getting the details from them or better still the land lord should be getting the details and passing them on to you or have the service agent come in and do the job for you as the cost is a tax deduction for him

My front load washer is making the laundry room

Non HE detergent will cause your front load washer to have odors. If you do use HE detergent and still have the problem,use the "AFFRESH" product in the washer to neutralize the odor.

Maytag Neptune front load washer with FL code

The "FL" is indicating that the door has failed to lock or it locked but the control does not sense the door has locked. It could be caused by: faulty door lock solenoid loose wire connection faulty door lock switch faulty door lock sense switch bad control board I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your washer. but try this first just in case....unplug it for 1 minute plug back in and see if the fault code clears. good luck.
