Check the top lid interlock switch. If the switch is bad or out of adjustment, the washer will not agitate or spin. This is a safety feature so no one can reach inside while the machine is running. To check if the switch is working, open the lid and SLOWLY close it,going as slow as possible when the lid is almost closed. Just before the lid "hits bottom", you should hear a CLICK sound. This is the lid switch actuating. If you do not hear the click, the lid interlock switch needs replacement or adjustment.

Wont fil with water

The screen on the water inlet to the machine may be plugged. Take the water hoses off at the machine end to see if there is a blockage. If that isn't it the solenoids that open the water valves may be stuck or not working. The timer operates the solenoids.

What is the vertical pumping capacity for a Maytag Neptune washer

I believe it can be done,but I dont think it is recommended by the manufacturer. if you are in a basement and that is your only option, the only suggestion I would have is to build a platform for the waher and dryer to sit on . It would have to be very sturdy. Maytag recommends that you install a wash tub or something of the sort and install a sump pump to pump the water into the drain.

Waher wont spin

first, if it's under warranty, have them service it, if not then....

the maytags work mainly on belts with a forward and reverse on the motor. forward washes, reverse drains and starts spin cycle. if the motor does reverse and drains the water, then it's probably the transmission of the washer. these washers have 10 years parts on the transmission, so I would have a service repairman come out and fix it. you'd only pay for the labor and the transmission would be free.

Leaking waher

water can leak from the other valve while filling up if you dont have the hose on it,if you blank the valve off with a nut and tail with a coin and rubber washer in it that will fix your problem.hope this helps.
