have a 10 year old Maytag Neptune Washer MAH4000AWW serial number 40325053WH. Thankfully I had the mold remediation kit/drum liner/wax motor replacement years ago by class action settlement and has been performing great until recently when it acts as if it was possessed or on steroids.
It rapidly advances through all cycles as it fills,washes,spins and drains before shuttting off in the 2nd or 3rd rinse cycle,likely due to too much water in drum.(doesn't pump out as fast as it's filling for next rinse cycle). When starting up again(by manually moving dial to end of rinse cycle so as to drain) it continues same fast advance through cycle but further continues to fill even after pressing stop. It requires unplugging from outlet to stop the filling. Otherwise it would advance around the dial to another wash option cycle.
So...based on searches to forum it appears I may have a control board issues...but please read on as it is not yur typical R11 Q6.
Attached picture is the motor control board, notice the discolored area around the components at bottom right of board(are they resistors?) Is this scorched or normal? If so I know the next step is not just the board but a motor conversion kit.
For the machine control board,there is scorched spot on backside of board Conn 2 behind pin 8 which corresponds to Water Temp input 2(see attach of green board). R11 and Q6 is fine(at least no scorch).
1) are these boards the culprit and replacing them will exorcise the demons of a tired but damn good worker?
2)Are these boards toast or can they be DIY Radio Shack circuit board modified vs. $200/ EACH?
3)Is there any other component/part to check that may contributing to rapid cycle advancement?
4) based upon replies to above questions can I use scavanged parts from sister models MAH3000 and MAH5500(preferred according to what I've read online)?
many thanks ya'll,
