My Maytag Washer (Neptune model # MAH4000AWW serial # 40344384WW)

Resolved Question:

My Maytag Washer (Neptune model # XXXXX serial # XXXXX) just quit going into high speed spin. I have checked the belt and it is good and it sounds like the drum is turning when it is pumping the water out. It completes the cycle and stops without the high speed spin.
Thank you - Daniel

Bryan,

NO. Wen it enters into the spin cycle, it began to pump water out of the tub. It does this for an extended time, and then moves to the off position without the high speed spin, then the load completed beeper beeps, just a s though the complete cycle functioned normally.

ok , the light not being on tells me its the control board, the wax motor in the door lock assembly is bad causing the board to burn out.
Machine control board. *Burned resistor on board indicates another problem within the machine.

you will need to replace both the board and the wax motor, if you take the screws out along the top of the control panel and tip it forward you will see the board , look at it good you will see its burnt out, sorry, thanks Bryan

Bryan,

I've had the control board out, and there are no burn marks on either side of the board. I repaired mainframe computers for IBM for 20 years and I see nothing wrong with the circuit board.

Why did you say the wax motor being bad causes the control board to be bad?

Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
because ther was a huge class action lawsuit against maytag for this, if the lock light isnt comming on you probably have at least a bad wax motor, this is what locks the door and the machine wont spin if the door isnt locked, i'M sending you the tech sheets on this, these will tell you how to put this in diagnostic mode and then you can test the whole system, these are for techs only but you sound like you can do the tests, click this blue link, http://servicematters.com/maytag_library/docs/16010061.pdf thanks Bryan
