Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Washer wont spin. BUT, DOOR IS LOCKED. MAH 4000

Help, Maytag MAH 4000 AWW Thanks for your professional help. I am a plumber. My door IS locked and Locked Light is ON, but my washer will not spin. When I turn the inside tub, there is no resistence. I took off the top panel and there is no sign of burnt elctrical anything. Took off the rear access and found the belt and pulley in good order. Pulled the electric motor and it spins freely. Motor will not run during operation for agitation or spin. I already replaced the wax switch on this fine machine about two years ago. It has been such a sad investment. Please help, Thanks Kevin 4000AWW - Washer runs all cycles fine and agitates well, and then drains as designed. I observed this all with rear panel off as I replaced the drain pump. When the machine gets to the spin cycle, it will not spin, but appears to be doing a version of the agitation cycle, and sounds like it is continuing to drain, but nothing is draining. When completed, the test load was soaking wet and not ready for the dryer, so spin will not work, but everything else appears to be in working order.

Does sound like it's not balanced properly, or maybe it's set on drip dry instead of spin , basic solution i know but often the best lol ,

My Maytag Neptune front load washer door won't lock.


Hi Frances, from what you are describing it sounds like he check switch in the door lock assembly has gone bad. It isn't acknowledging that the door is fully locked and the control board thinks the door is still open. Fairly inexpensive part but labor Ivan be a pain to replace the check switch. Hope that helps.

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH 6700 AWW. It is shutting off and giving error code tE. Customer service does not recognize the error code. Can you help?


This is a problem with the signal from the water heating element "Thermistor" a Thermistor is a solid state sensor that senses temperature, in this case water temp. The Thermistor is part of the washers water heating assembly and not sold separately from it. There is a factory repair bulletin associated with the problem and the new part has improved reliability. I can't understand what the Maytag folks you called would tell you it is not listed, it is a common fault in the Neptune. Please rate my help. Thanks

I have a neptune MAH-1 washer, the door locked


if you remove the back console, youll be able to see the "machine controlboard". appro. ha;f way down and favoring the left side of circuit board youll notice a small blue relay cover(MAYBE 3/8"X1/2" in size. well just above that relay cover you see a resistor that will be physically burnt out( a real noticable burn ring around it) if this is the case you need to replace the board as well as the "wax motor" within the latch assy.
