Maytag Neptune codes

7 posts in this topic

We've had our Neptune for ~ 4 years without any troubles.  Yesterday, it blew the circuit breaker.  We reset the breaker thinking "That was odd".  We started the washer back up again, only to discover that the drum wouldn't move under it's own power.  I could spin it freely by hand, but the machine wouldn't spin it.  At the end of each cycle we tried using, the display would just show an 'Lr' code.  Any idea what the 'Lr' code means?  We did purchase an extended on this machine, so the repair person is coming out this week to take a look at it.  I'm just curious as to what the problem actually is.  I've read about several folks having circuit board and motor issues on their machines.  Could we have just lost our circuit board?  Popping the breaker seems indicative of an electrical component failing and causing a spike...  Ideas??  Thanks...

Lr = Locked Rotor. 

Post your model number for more pearls of wisdom.

Model number is MAH5500B.   Locked rotor? :yikes:  Is that as bad as it sounds?

:shock: Ouch!  Glad we bought the extended service.  I'm sure the repair bill would be more than the $700 we paid for the machine itself.  Thanks for the info...

IF you had extended service, why bother seeking out DIY repair info?  :huh:

Because I wanted to know what I'd be fixing when our extended service runs out (next year).  I'll be here when the tech is doing the repair so I can get an idea of what needs to be done to replace the parts.  From other folks' experience, it sounds like I'll be expecting more of these kinds of repairs on this particular washer.;)
