Maytag Neptune Doesn't Spin
« on: February 12, 2011, 05:25:02 PM »

This topic has been talked about yet I have an issued that needs clarification.  The unit's door locked light works and the washer cycles all of the way thru all of the cycles until the spin cycle.  I had a technician come out today and he feels it is the motor speed control board.  Yet he didn't actually check the wax motor switch since the door lock lights up and does lock the door properly.  Of course the motor speed board has been discontinued and replaced with a conversion kit along with new motor.  I find it ridiculous to replace more then the board.  Can it be repaired?  There is no burn markings on the board?  THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE ON THIS MATTER.

Model MAH4000AWQ

If the washer will tumble then your motor control is probably okay.  If one of your out-of-balance switches or spin enable switch is open, it won't spin.

I gotta love your posted the same link on my forum at the link below:
Did you figger to  get as much feed back as possible? I bet if I Googled your post, it would show up elsewhere :)

Oh well, with this much info available on the Web, no wonder it's hard to sell parts when you window-shop for service help. That's our loss, not yours.
