I have a washing machine that starts to fill and then stops. Obviously i want to buy the correct part from you so I checked the resistance on the water inlet valve and it appears to be okay. i then looked for burnt connections on the control board-nothing. any other ideas on what to do next?
I see that the timer is what you show as next potential culprit. is there a way to test this or other parts with digital multimeter?
Answer Craig, The next check should be at the fill hoses and valve. If you haven't yet, check and clean the debris screens in the fill hose and inside the fill valve inlets. Then test the water level switch circuits 22002921 or 22002994 (depending on serial number) with the air tube disconnected. You would also want to blow in the end of the hose, this will clear any debris or sediment in the tube. If the control board doesn't see a change in the switch circuits on the pressure switch within a specific time, the control "assumes" the washer is flooding and shuts down. Also a resistance test is not as accurate as needed, you can get a proper resistance value, and the solenoid not lift the plunger in the valve body, and this washer is temperature controlled, it fluctuates the valves off and on the maintain a minimum water temperature, if there's a failed solenoid plunger, when the control cycles the power to the other solenoid, if it doesn't lift the washer will stop filling and then shut down after a few minutes. Yes, you can test all the components within this washer with a digital multi meter.
Using the wiring diagram and test information on the tech data sheet in the console, you shouldn't have any issues.
Our Maytag washer everything works except when it goes to wash and rinse cycle it shuts off. we then have to drain the water. Water fills properly and drains properly. Tub turns freely when empty. I have ordered a new control board AP4026827 (22002989) Control board from your company and am asking if that will solve the problem or is something else needed? Thanks Glenn
Answer Glenn, Before you install a new control board, first check and flush the water faucets, The fill hose and fill valve screens. Make sure they are free of any debris or replace them. 12001413, Y013783, 96160. Roll the control panel forward, and disconnect the air tube from the water level switch 22002921 and blow in the end of the tube, this should clear any sediment or debris that may have accumulated in the tube or bell. When the washer is started and the machine fills with water, the control board allows a specific amount of time to pass(12 to 15 minutes) then the board sends out a "check" pulse, if the pulse doesn't return to the control board, the control interprets this as an overfill / flooding situation and turns the fill valve circuit off, and you have to start the cycle over again. If the water level switch doesn't "close" due to a slow fill or a clog in the air tube, the pulse doesn't return to the control board.
My washer comes on when you push the on button. Starts to fill then shuts off. I have tested the door switch it tested good. What now?
You will want to check the control board on the unit, which is located in the control panel near the timer. Make sure that there are no burnt resistors on the control board. If there is then you would want to replace the control board and the lock wax motor.
Hi, When I turn on my Neptune after a few seconds the machine just stops. The motor won't even rotate. It's stops mid cycle also.
Answer Hello David,
Open the control panel and look at the machine control board. There is a component just to the left of the center of the board just above a little blue rectangular component that will burn out if the door locking wax motor has failed. If this is the case, you will need to replace the machine control board 22002989 and the wax motor 12002535 in the control board.
Timer will not advance threw the 1,2,3, rinse, spin empty cycle. Washer shuts down unlocks door, I can advance manual from 1 threw 3 and on to spin, need to hit the start bottom each time to complete. Door is locked and I have already install new time 22002867. What now, Thanks
Answer Hello Sangerx3,
You will want to check your pressure switch and air dome hose to make sure that they are good. The air dome hose needs to be clean and no clogging. Also check the water valve screens to make sure that they are not clogged. If they are clogged they need to be cleaned. Check to make sure that you are getting water to the water valve.
Door is not locking and It is not going into the spin cycle. It totally bypasses the spin cycle. I replaced the wax motor but still nothing.
Answer Hello Chris,
You want to check your wire connection to the wax motor and control board. Also inspect the control board 22002989 to see if you have any burnt resistors.
My washer worked great until one day it would not move through the cycles. I ended up buying a new timer, part number 22002992. A local appliance repair place recommended & ordered the part for me. After I put in the new timer and tried starting the washer, I got an odd buzzing sound, and the wall breaker went to the 'off' position. I also smelled something burning when I reopened the control panel. I noticed the R11 resistor was burned, so bought a replacement resistor and 600v triac, but this did no good... same results. Old timer would not advance and new timer caused breaker to blow and smokey smell. Do I need a new control board, different timer model, ????? Need help please!!
Answer Wow, Lets do it like this, first, based on the model and series number (MAH4000aww series 10) You'll need to order and replace the control board 22002989 timer 22002786 and door lock wax motor kit 12002535 . The wax motor is the cause of the burnt R11 resistor, and solderring the control board, may have damaged it, and caused the damage to the timer. So, let's verify the parts and get the proper parts installed. The most common issue for MAH series washers that stop mid cycle is usually a fill issue so you'll want to disconnect the fill hoses, clean the filter screens in the hoses and valve, or replace the fill valve 22002795. Make sure you've got everything wired and attached correctly, and the proper parts installed or replaced, then we'll need to go from there.
