Neptune washer replace or repair
« on: April 13, 2008, 02:57:16 PM »
I just blew up the the control panel on my neptune washer.  I shorted it out if you must know.  It is completely dead and will not let the door open.  Fortunately it is also empty.  If it had been working properly I wouldn't have been messing with it in the first place.  So the question is when to repair and when to replace.  Replacing the control panel might solve the initial problem of not spinning faster than "low" or gentle.  But 300 dollars is a good start to a new machine.

hmm?

The control, part # 34001479, is only $217 at my distributors (800-507-4040). That's a far cry from a $800 washer. Your machine can't be over 4-5 years old, why junk it?

The control is a fairly simple repair and would likely solve this washers problems for some time. Next time you have problems, come by here before you start ruining parts. There's always a right way to do things, and when it comes to appliances, someone here can likely steer you right. There's no excuse to replace a broken machine with a new one unless you are just made of money :)

Your "board fixer" dude might have done a few of the Neptune 3000 and 4000 series, but if you look closely at the model number in this case, you'll see it is a Samsung model (6700). I doubt repairs are possible on this particular series.  You really ought not to promote these jack-legs anyway. What worked for you may not be in everyone elses' best interest, as there are just as many horror stories from people who have tried a "cheap fix" before only to end up buying a board anyway.

Actually, he wrote mah6700waa

Yes, Bonnie, the MAH6700*  is a Samsung product from Korea, not made in Newton Iowa like the MAH3000 and the MAH4000 series. It does not have the same kind of control board, nor does it have any wax motors, therefore the poster in this case with the problem cannot get a cheap fix.

Even this machine had some design changes, among which was adding an off-balance sensor to the new boards, something the original series (mah6700) did not have. The new boards come as shown below, along with the new motion sensor.
