First time here and can't believe how great the information is!! My girlfriend has a Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW that quit spinning. After doing a little reading i was sure i would find the R28 resistor fried but nope.
Turns out the problem is in the motor control board at the bottom of the washer. I can visually see that what looks like a resistor at R28 and R29 are completely melted. The glass tube fuse is also burnt.
What i am looking for, is first the value of both resistors. I saw the link for a new motor control board and might end up buying one, but was going to try and impress the girlfriend by just replacing those components first if i could
My other question is, was this caused by the same wax motor that is talked about everywhere or something elxe? No signs of damage at all at the upper control board.
Lastly help this automotive transmission specialist here that knows nothing about appliaces... why is it called a wax motor???
Thanks in advance,
