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.

Why does it take so long to wash cloths I have done everything 1 hour and half still washing

Hi Robin,

Many washers have different wash settings and rinses in addition to temperature options and water levels (or load size). The temperatures wont affect the wash times (but hot and warm water washes will cost you more for the expense of making the hot water), so choose whichever you think you need. The water level makes a small impact each time it needs to be filled (wash, rinse, etc.). A warm wash will fill in half the time as either a cold or hot wash - as both hot and cold water are combined to make a "warm" water cycle.

A "Normal" or "Regular" wash without a pre-soak or pre-wash cycle and a single rinse is usually sufficient for *most* laundry needs - especially if you're using dryer sheets. Otherwise, you may find fabric softener is not rinsed out enough to your liking (or not - it's a personal choice).

If your machine offers a "Max Extract" or longer spin setting - it is worth running it to reduce the amount of time they're in the expensive-to-use dryer.

If you need more help - provide your washer brand and model.

I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

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.

Wash cycles are increasing in time required to complete

cold water valve in back could be plugged causing longer fill times.
