    Default maytag neptune problem

    I have an older neptune front load washing machine. I just got finishing putting new bearings in it and got it all back together. Everything works fine but now it won't do the spin cycle.I have looked on line and everybody says its a wax motor problem or a control board problem but it spun out before i tore it apart so I think I something didn't get put back right. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    maytag neptune
    Model#?
    http://www.applianceaid.com/model-number.php Some model# helps.

    Everything works fine but now it won't do the spin cycle
    What happens instead? Water drains out? Tries to spin and slows back down? Sits there dead? Just tumbles?

    It is model # MAH300AAW. It runs through all the cycles and drains out but when it gets to the spin cycle it just tumbles until its done. Thanks for the help!

    A copy:

    Troubleshooting: Washer Will Not Spin

    Set the Timer Knob into a Spin increment and start the washer. Check to make sure the Door Locked Light comes on, after a 30-60 second delay.
    If the Door Locked Light does not come on, check for 120 vac across the Door Lock Wax Motor.
    If 120 vac is present when the washer is running in a Spin increment but the Door Lock Wax Motor does not extend fully, replace the Door Lock Switch Assembly.
    If the Door Lock Wax Motor does extend, check for continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch when the switch actuator button is pressed in. If there is no continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch, replace the Door Lock Switch Assembly. If there is continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch, check the wiring between the Switch and the Machine Control terminal P3-7. If there is continuity in this wire, replace the Machine Control.
    If 120 vac is not present when the washer is running in a Spin increment, check the wiring between the Machine Control and Door Lack Wax Motor (brown wire no. 14). If there is continuity between the Door Lock Wax Motor and Machine Control terminal P7-4, replace the Machine Control.

    Definetly check the off-balanced switches since this only occured after your repair. Maybe a loose wire/wire connector.
