Customer Question

I have a Maytag Neptune washer model number MAH4000A and the machine will start a cycle but stop after about two minutes. If I advance the control to the next setting (i.e. from wash to rinse) it will run for about two minutes and then stop again. Is this and indication that the timer needs to be replaced?

is the door locking and the door locked light on?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I believe it is because the cycle starts and water flows into the machine.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
so you don't believe theres enough water going in?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
No, I believe the correct amount of water is being used but the cycle will start and stop after about two minutes.
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
this sounds like the control board or the motor and the control board for the motor, does the door lock and stay locked?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

The model number is XXXXX Maytag top load washer. I ran a load with the following sequence. I put laundry in the machine for a small load and selected that that on the dial. When I shut the lid the locked door light did not go on. The machine started to load water but did not fill the washer to the proper level. The agitator did not start. I moved the dial to the rinse position and the water emptied from the washer. It started to load the rinse warter (locked door light was now on) but did not finish loading the water to the proper level and again he agitator did not start. I hope this is more helpful
