maytag neptune washer, mah3000 fl

6 posts in this topic

maytag neptune fl mah3000 (earliest version ) hums but doesn't pump water out. Had water pump replaced 3 yrs ago.Has experenced all other problems, but I made them fix it under warrantee. Can I safely unplug washer and reach way into bottom. I have no electrical knowledge, and heard that it is not enough to unplug something; residual charge will remain in an appliance. Is that correct, and if so how do I disperse it.Thank you!

It's safe if you unplug it, there is nothing in there to hold any charge. You probably have something stuck in the pump, or the pump failed.

Now I know why "you guys" call it a war. I can't believe it, but I got it to spin and function. I'm also 3 quarters and a dime richer since I pulled them out of one of those tubes you encouraged me to check. All connections are holding except for front clamp. It seems to be tenuous, and leaking if not adjusted just right. Thanks for the help!

Now I know why "they" say never to wash clothes when you're not home. I couldn't believe all those clamp things that seem to barely hold everything together!

Is it really easier to get to the pump from the front rather than the back? I have been going through theback to clean out the pump in my iNeptune (pun intended). I've never taken the front panel off but I assumed it was a bigger job.

Depends on space.  I always do it from the front because Samurai's 9th Law of Appliance Repair states, "Never move an appliance to make an repair unless you absolutely have to."  The reason for this is that any time you move an appliance, you risk damaging the floor or walls, or the appliance footings, or disturbing the appliance connections in some horrible, catastrophic way that you won't find out about until you get a letter from the customer's lawer demanding compensation for damages.
