Question about Maytag MAH5500BWW Neptune Washer Boot Drain

How to use spin only feature on Maytag Washer MAH5500BWW?

I'd like to use the spin only feature on my Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer (model # MAH5500BWW). But when I try to press the [Spin] button, nothing happens; the console just remains on the previously selected feature/cycle. What do I need to do so that I can press the [Spin] button and then the contents of the washer will just spin (and drain)?

Sounds like the control board is bad. take the back panel off the control panel and look at the R11 resistor and see if it burnt. If it is replace the control board and the door wax motor (in the locking mechanism)

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

YOU MEAN LOUD DURING SPIN CYCLE? IF THAT SO, WHAT KIND OF NOISE? BANGING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE UNBALANCED LOAD OR ONE OF THE SUSPENSION IS BAD OR FELL OFF. GRINDING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING, TO REPLACE THAT, YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE REAR TUB ASSEMBLY, VERY COSTLY. MEANS YOU PROBABLY BE BUYING A NEW WASHER.

The machine control detected that the rotor is "locked". It happens when no tach signal is sent to the machine control from the motor control either due to a faulty motor control board, a faulty drive motor, or a faulty wiring harness connection between the motor control board and the machine control board.

Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk electric shock. Open the washer door and turn the drum manually to verify whether the rotor or the tub bearing is stuck or not. Proceed below when the drum rotates freely; otherwise refer to the next troubleshooting guide.

Remove the four screws from the rear of the console attaching it to the rear cover plate. Cushion the top cover of the washer with a cloth. Grasp the top of the console and gently rock it forward away from the rear cover plate, and then flip the console to the top of the washer to access the machine control board.

Disconnect the 4-pin and 3-pin wiring harness connector at the left bottom of the control board including the 3-pin connector on the right bottom side. Clean the connectors and the pin terminals using an old toothbrush or any similar tool and electronic cleaning solution; 70% alcohol will do.

Hold only the edges of the control board when cleaning the terminals to avoid electrostatic discharge (ESD) to the electronic components that may cause damage to the board. Touching the unpainted part of a concrete wall or metal water pipeline repeatedly will help prevent ESD damage.

Reseat the wiring harness connectors repeatedly. In this manner, the terminals are thoroughly cleaned to ensure a good connection.

Reinstall the console by aligning the hooked tabs at the bottom of the console with the slots in the top cover. Insert the tabs into the slots and rock the console back into position then secure it to the rear cover plate with the four screws removed previously.

    Tip

    Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers No Spin Problem


    A class suit was filed in the State of Illinois, USA and then later on won against Maytag in 2004 due to the high failure rate of the wax motor used in the door lock mechanism of their Neptune Front Load Washers. The wax motor is used to activate the door lock switch by extending its shaft when a voltage from the machine control is applied across its terminals. Its failure then leads to the breaking down of components in the expensive machine control board. This is the fact that angered the customers which led to the filing of the class suit.

    The obvious symptom of a failed wax motor is the inability of the washer to advance to the spin cycle and the door lock lamp is not turned on. The washer stops momentarily at the end of the wash cycle then continue to tumble as the machine control checks the activation of the door lock switch. The control will not allow a spin speed higher than 51 revolutions per minute (RPM) unless the door lock switch is activated by the wax motor. It is a safety feature of the washer to prevent accident due to accidental opening of the washer door during a high speed spin.

    Customers who purchased the Neptune Front Load Washers in the USA after April 1, 1997 and before August 9, 2004 are Class members and eligible for the repair reimbursement, replacement cost, or purchase certificate depending on the length of service of the machine. Call up Maytag at 1-888-MAYTAG (1-888-629824) for more information.

    The models included in the class suit are as follows: MLE2000AYW, MLE2000AWW, MLE2000AZW, MLG2000AWW (Gas Stack Unit), MAH3000AAW, MAH3000AEW, MAH3000AGW, MAH3000AWA, MAH3000AWW, MAH3000BGW, MAH4000AWW, MAH4000BWW, MAH4000AWQ, MAH4000BWQ, MAH5500AWW, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWQ, MAH55FLBWW, MAH55FLBWQ, MAH6500AWW, MAH6500AWQ, MAH7500AWW, MAH7500AWQ, MAH7550AAW, MAH7550AGW.

    Maytag Neptune MAH5500BWW burn smell (doesn't appear to be hose)


    if you have a maytag neptune washer that ran up until now you got your money's worth,that's the machine that put maytag out of business,if it's smoking and ripping the boot it sounds like the tub bearing is gone and you'll have to replace the washer,if it's load in the spin like marbles are rolling around in it that's the problem,but i wouldn't put a cent into that machine.

    Central bearing and seal are damaged. Very expensive repair and very expensive parts. Maytag does not sell bearings separately, they're only available with the outer tub, which is $400-$500; Repair itself is another 2-3 hours of hard work. Do the math...
