Maytag Neptune fills, starts to rotate and shuts off
« on: January 05, 2014, 05:42:28 PM »
 :(  I have always liked my Maytag Neptune.  Only needed service 2 x's in 15 years.  Now it is filling, but stops after a few rotations.  Service man told me it needed new motor and motor control board.  I purchased one and installed both myself but found that the original problem has not changed.  Still fills, rotates a time or two and shuts off!  I see others have had this problem.....were there any fixes??  Thank you!

Hello again,    my Maytag Neptune is model number MAH4000AWQ.  I was told by serviceman that it needed a new motor and motor drive board.  I bought one, installed it and original problem still exists.  Fills, rotates a few and shuts off.

Appliance Junk, do you have the repair manuel for this model?  Thanks for your help.

This is the closest service manual you will find for the MAH4000.
It's says it's for the MAH3000, but it covers both of them.

Something easy you could check first is the control board that is located behind the control panel that the time and other buttons are mounted to.

Look it over closely for any burnt parts. Let us know what you find or if you have any other questions.

I checked over the main control board and nothing is burned or looks bad.  I see others have had this problem....did anyone find a solution?

sounds like mine.  :( power on light, good for 15 seconds then shuts off. after repeat (trys) . Light goes off quicker 2 sec.
 Funny thing if I advance timer to a rinse part of dial it will work, fills, goes back and forth and does high speed spin. just a problem at cycle start, any cycle start. what could be going on?

Have swapped out fill pressure switch.
