Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Pre select cycle times are getting longer

Quich wash was 27 minutes now 42 minutes Standard cycle cold-cold was 47 minutes now 80 minutes. Example: When you push quick wash it now reads on the readout reads 42. Can the timer be going bad? Is the timer mechanical or digital? Is the timger getting longer because the machine is monotering something and remembering how long it took last time? Any Ideas? Thanks Roger

Try cleaning the hose screens and the screens in the water valve. tuen off the water supply and remove the hoses from the back of the machine as well as the water supply. check for sediment or other debris and replace the screens as needed and reconnect.

My machine is flashing pre and there is 1 hour and 27 minutes left on the cycle


Please double check that you haven't accidentally pressed another button that would cause the "pre" to show up during the cycle. And you can restart the cycle and check for the "pre" again. Thank you.

LG WM3987HW Combo - drum is filling with water during dry cycle.

Sears Parts Direct is one source of the parts diagrams, . See the Dispenser assembly parts diagram for the water inlet valve. If you can watch the entire cycle, try turning off the shut-off valves for the washer inlet hoses after the rinse cycle and before the dry cycle starts. Water should not flow into the washer/dryer with the shut-offs closed.

I've seen inlet valve solenoids fail in the open position or in the closed position. I've never seen a control board that sent open messages randomly. (Sometimes, there is damage to the control board or corrosion or damaged wiring that stops the control board from sending the open/closed message to the solenoid.)

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool Dishwasher GU3600XTSB 3 - 4 hours to complete washing

Wash time is determined by the cycle you select, the incoming water temperature and the installation location. The new machines will heat the water to a predetermined temperature and it takes roughly 1 minute for each degree of rise, If the incoming water is at 120 deg and the wash cycle wants 165 than it will take 45 minutes just for that one cycle to complete, Factor in an outside wall with poor insulation or lower water temperature and it could take even longer.
