Neptune Washer Does not shut off after cycles completed
« on: September 06, 2008, 04:31:33 PM »

I had the infamous wax motor failure that took out the circuit board. I replaced the max motor with a new black plunger model, replaced the r11 and q6. I gave it a test run and everything went well until it reached the end of the cycle (after the extra spin cycle). It just keeps starting and stopping. It will not shut down. I have to manually stop it with the start\stop button. I also just replaced the q7 as I was told that could be the culprit.

The Maytag Neptune Control Boardicon is not made to be repaired.

I would replace the board with a new one and move on.

We tried repairing a number of these boards when we first heard about the repairs being done to them years ago.

Three out of four that we did repair would work, for awhile. The ones that did work we ended up going back to replace with in six months.

I'm not saying that I'm a expert on the Maytag Neptune, but that has been my experience with them over the years.

Maytag needs to remedy this problem before the shysters go for a field day. I can just see the tv now. If you have been a victim or your offspring or you brothers uncle mother in law have ever had to buy a electronic board because of a wax motor failure( a $2 part) then pwease contact da lawfurm of Dewy,cheatum and how. You may be entitled to some misery money.After we take our percentage of course!  :2funny:
