Maytag Neptune (MAH3000AWW) stopping mid cycle - randomly

3 posts in this topic

I have read through other discussions and my situation seems a little different than the others.  The machine is randomly stopping (lights go out) during mid cycle but will pick up where it left off when the start button is pushed.   I recently replaced the main board due to the hot water never shutting off through the whole cycle.  This solved that problem and the machine ran without issue for over a month.    In order to resolve this shut down issue, I first changed the wax motor.  Problem still exists.   I am looking for a punch list of things to check out before a throw up the white flag and retire this beast.

Test the power comin into the machine from the receptacle. C

Be checking it while running and see if you get a different reading when it shuts off.

Check voltage at wax motor during startup.  If less than 115 volts there may be an issue with the motor control.  Make sure to check the balance switch on the outer tub for continuity.
