Maytag Neptune Won't Spin

6 posts in this topic

Maytag Neptune MAH4000 won't spin during the spin cycle.

The belt is okay

The Door Locked Light is on (and door is locked)

Checked the Door Lock, Spin Enabled signal on the control board - YL36 and it appears to not be activated (24 VDC)

By the way the Unbalance Switch is not tripped.

From other forums/sources it appears that the Door Wax Motor may not be working properly.

Is there any more diagnosis to perform, or do I just need to replace the Door Wax Motor. Can this be replace in isolation, or do I need I whole Door Switch assembly?

TIA

Meant to say the Door Look, Spin Enable is not activated - it is NOT 24 VDC

The wax motor plunger may not be extending out far enough to actuate that far right switch. If that's the case, try removing the Z-spring behind the wax motor and stretch it a bit and putting it back in.

Thanks for the info! Indeed it appears the plunger was not extending far enough to depress the door lock, enable spin switch. I will try stretching the spring a bit, but I put a little two sided foam tape on the switch to extend it a tad and that also seems to have taken care of it.
