Maytag Neptune Stackable won't spin
« on: November 12, 2010, 12:18:51 PM »
Well I have read several different sites regarding this issue, and have located my wax motor as the washer works great just no spin the control board looks fine I don't see anything burned out. So now I am going to replace the wax motor. However I was just wondering if there was a way to determine if in fact the wax motor is the issue or could it be anything else? Is there a way to bypass the motor to see if it will spin to rule out any othere issues. The motor is unexpensive and a easy from what I see fix. However would really love to save my safe the time in ordering the part and it still won't work.

The belt is fine
The washer works great except spinning
The washer drains
The control board looks fine nothing burnt to my eye
And I have checked all wires to ensure they are connected properly.

Any help or advise would be appreaciated.

Thank you

I stand corrected, The R11 is burnt on the board. Now my next question is... Can the board be repaired for a cheaper cost then teh 190.00 I am being told for a new board?

Thank you

I would replace the board and the wax motor.

I have tried repairing the boards years ago, but it ended up that there was a 50/50 chance that I would be called back in the first month because the repaired board failed.

A great number of the other boards that worked longer then the first month ended up failing in the first year of being repaired.

I have never been called back on a washer for the same problem if a new board and wax motor was simply installed to start with.

So I guess if you want to be professional about the repair I would recommend that you replace the board and wax motor with new ones.
Hope you find our website helpful.

The "NEW" boards I have ordered lately are rebuilt,not new. Have a return for core charge added as well. No free return shipping, you must have authorization and pay $12-15 to ship it back to get your $35.00
