    Default Maytag Neptune laundry problems MLE2000AYW

    Hi,

    1rst problem; stopped just before each spin...nudge forward 1 click-goes through to next cycle-nudge, and on and on.

    Had insurance..so repairman replaced timer..left...Didn't even try it(New Years Eve).

    Tried to do a load..no change, same problem.

    Tried another load and all hell broke loose. Now water runs continuously as in rinse cycle. will not shut off unless I open door. Tried several cycles with door open and close button actuated. Water will not shut off unless I release door close button.

    Gave up, called repairman back..replaced timer again(7 days later), also control board in front panel. Still the same. He gave up..called Whirlpool tech, they told him it needs main control panel(located in dryer cabinet). Ordered part and left.

    On day of next service(6 days later) I got a call from Ins saying repair not cost effective so they are sending me a check for $348 replacement/buy back clause.

    So here I am, mechanically able to repair myself if viable. I would appreciate any and all advice/instructions/possibilities.

    Even open to jury rigging if logical.

    Thank you

    We had the same stacked pair as you do and it gave us many years of service before requiring more repairs than I wanted to take on. I had to replace the wax motor on the washer and replace a couple of components on the main control board a few years back. It looks like the main control board, P/N 22004325, is still available from several sources and a rebuilt one is available for $114.00. If it were me I would replace the board and hope for the best. It is an easy job. If it still doesn't work with a new board maybe it is time to think about a new washer/dryer. Sorry I can't be more help. Good luck. Dave

    Hi Dave,
    Thanks, Yeah, we loved it for over 10 years old, so probably time for a new one. But, we are selling house soon and don't really want to spring for a new one.

    Where are the boards available for $114. I couldn't find any for less than $200

    ?Control board in front panel?...the one down inside the washer at the bottom?
    If yes, that is the motor control board and yes the main machine board is up inside the dryer just under the top panel.

    Don't/didn't see that issue often at all....one we ran into...

    A section of the printed circuit was burnt/corroded and had actually melted a bit of the plastic holder.....a short was created there keeping the fill valve energized.

    Thanks guys. Dave...I found several at/near that price. Thanks for energizing my brain.

    Jeff1, my board looks exactly like that. My concern is; what would cause that and how do I determine it is related to first problem. I don't want to install a new board and promptly burn it up.

    PS; Found one on eBay for $90. Suppose to be new. The guy had similar problems but turned out to be pump control..Parts people would not accept return cause of opened box(his story). Seems legit as he has 100% pos rating. Anyway took a chance and bought it.

    One the one pictured above the board seemed to cut or vibrate over time in the bracket and that started the short on the circuit part of the board.....I took those pics. I sanded down the bracket in that spot and put in a new board, all was good on that one.

    Hi Jeff,

    Sanding that down was probably good idea. Hadn't thought about that. I noticed that was burned bad on mine as well, hence the burning odor I got. Guess I'll have to take a chance.

    Hi,

    Thank you all for the help. The board arrived yesterday and is a new OEM by Whirlpool. I installed, run a few dry runs, washed two loads and all seems to be okay. The plastic mounting bracket had been burned so I did sand that smooth. On closer inspection the board showed considerable wear from vibration, so I assume and am confident that was the issue.

    This is definitely a design flaw as the area where the circuits are should not be in contact with anything. The ultimate anti-vibration mounting would be 5 or 6 screws(corners..1 or 2 in center) in areas where no circuits or components are involved, on raised mounts so no circuits or components are touching anything. That's my rant.

    Note to anyone reading this thread; When I installed the board onto the mounting bracket(putting the screws in from the back) I checked the nuts and was able to tighten 1 1/2 turns on one and about 1/2 a turn on the other. If these were left in that state it would allow for vibration to occur.

    I now have a few parts for sale. 2 timers and one dryer control board(why he installed that I do not know). This guy was obviously not knowledgeable with this machine. The good news is, if this all works out, I just made a few bucks off the insurance.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Hal
