Take it from a former senior tech for Maytag Corp......

The repair kit you see on those sites may work ok for a few months, then the board usually fails again.  Replacement of the wax motors and the board at the same time usually solves the problem permanently (or at least for a reasonable period of years).  Sinking your money into one of these kits is a lesson in futility.

This fellow repaired my control board on my MAH4000 Neptune. It has worked flawlessly since. I also changed the wax motor.

The OE boards suffer from poor solder quality and the circuit paths on the rear of the board are very fine leading to board failure and open circuits on the board.

Keep connectors clean, grounds secure and make sure you have the latest wax motor and your control board should not give trouble.
I used to repair RADAR then they discontinued vacuum tubes. Pity

They may suffer from poor (Chinese workmanship) and there is nothing wrong with getting a control board rebuilt. But even with better workmanship you still need to replace the component that is in the failed circuit of the board.  Here's a helpful guide to the Neptune resistors and related components to help discover what part need to be replaced when either rebuilding the board or replacing the board.

My customers will replace a pump, that's it.   They pay such a meaty p,rice tag, then in most cases, junk the Neptune as the cost and number of parts required to fix it for bearing/main board/wax motor/motor control, then there is the labour on top, plus fort, plus tax's.   The biggest rip off Maytag made, that there own people that supported then  in the end took them down.

The control board in my model (MAH4000) is not Chinese. I believe I recall mine was made in Mexico. Nonetheless, the solder paths on the board are thin and may become intermittent. This can be repaired with solder and point to point wiring.

The fellow who repaired my board has electronic skills and experience and knows how to diagnose the board to the component level.
