My neptune was 30 min for a quick wash and is now 55 min
Every time I was a load of clothes now it is adding minutes to the starting time. at this point it is taking me at least an hour, even for a quick load. very frustating. I have unplugged the machine and still starts at the 55 min. To do a regular wash it is 90 minutes. Any suggestions?

Terri, you may need to contact Maytag on this one. Here is service bulletin that was released in June of 2002...
"Date: June, 2002 No: TDL0008A-S, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWQ Issue Software Improvements: A software improvement was introduced to the machine control board. The improvements focused on. Reducing the number of wet clothes loads, spinning and draining complaints. Modifications to the time estimation displayed toward the end of spin cycle. Display will no longer fluctuate erratically, time remaining. ?dO? is no longer displayed when the door is open. Warranty See specific product for warranty information. Action This board modification was phased into production without a series change. Inventory at the National Parts Center was purged and replaced with the new control board."
Hope this helps.

Maytag Neptune washer motor/motor control circuit board ... my board just fried - is your washer still working? wondering how longthe conversion fix will last. ... Other times it will run a completecycle without any malfunctions.
Answer to your question "Is there any way to set them different?" Short answer is no. The Maytag Neptune like many other washers that display a time of cycle first start with an estimated time this relays a lot on the last cycle ran. But, more importantly it also takes into consideration other washing options. For example, lets say that your quick wash cycle used to only display 35 min. now if you select an extra rinse option the time will increase from that 35 min. to a higher amount of time. This is due to the longer time it takes to go through a second rinse cycle. The MAH5500 if I'm not mistaken also has a heater in it so there are options such as sanitize which takes 120 degree hot incoming water (suggested temp. for hot water heaters) and heats it to approx. 165 degrees. And as you can imagine this takes a washer some time to do this (increasing wash time). If you would like to lower washing time check the washing options and remove any that are not needed at that time; pay close attention to extra rinse cycles and the soil levels that are selected. Hope this helps. Cheers.
I'm and owner and will try to help. Are you handy and do you want to try a DIY fix? From the wash times is sounds like the washer is agitating the wash load (tumblers are rotating the wash basket load) is that correct? If so see if the machine will complete a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Set the Spinsetting to Spin/Hang dry seting and start the cycle.It should take about 10 min complete.Does the Spin Only cycle complete with no clothes in the wash basket? Some handy links if you are going to DIY.........Service Manual for reference.
Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good. No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine. You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head. Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached. ""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code. The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min.I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM.At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle.You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine.Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

Unplug for 10 min to reboot the curcuit board. This will reset the system. Sometimes selecting numerous cycles or pushing buttons a lot in a short period of time can overwelm the little brain in the curcuit. This action will clear the memory of any unwanted comands in the curcuit.
If it’s an FAV6800A I think you may have a clutch malfunction with your machine.To verify if the clutch has malfunctioned we need to perform a quick check.Please visit this link and review my post of Solution #1 posted on Jan 30, 2009.
