I haven't tried using without any clothes. My 'test' wash is small load of rags.
Should I try a load with no clothes?
Clothes are soaking wet. No water in drum this time, there is some in the rubber seal area.
I'm running a full cycle with no clothes. I'm a bit worried but its starting out with a bunch of water in its system, will it be able to recover or will it just fill a certain amount of water then drain the same amount and be left with too much water?
Oh, I also unplugged it, let it sit for a while and plugged it back in, hoping that would reset things.
The cold water intake filter was pretty clogged but should be sparkling now.
I'll try that.
Does seem to be draining, door doesn't lock. I opened it while it was draining which interuppted the spin cycle. I had to close the door and start it over.
What's wrong if the door never locks?
Got the parts, how do I install?
Found this on how to replace the motor once you've disassembled.
I replaced the wax motor first, put everything back together then discovered the control board should also be replaced while its disassembled. Problem was the door was locked at that point.
I'm testing hoping the door opens at the end.
If the door doesn't unlock, is my only option replacing the control board from the back or is there a way to trigger the door to become unlocked?
The machine control board I have does not look like the one I see inside my my machine. As I look in from the back on the machine, I'm comparing my board to one that is in the back on the left.
Are there more than one 'board?' Does the 1999 Maytag Nepturne washer model have a different control board than the one on the link?
Can you say project from hell? You've been great though.
How is that control board secured?
I loosened two screws on the corners that seem to hold the board to a bracket/framing thing. That doesn't seem to loosen the board. I see a bolt/screw way in the back (which should be the front if you are coming from the front.) Can't quite get to it but not sure what it even is.
Do you take off the framing first then remove the control board or do you just remove the control board? If its just the control board, exactly what screws need to be removed?
