door latch motor on the MAH5500BWW model

Here is a question I get often...

"Just wondering if the door latch motor on the MAH5500BWW model was a concern and needed changed. Thanks, Doug "

Hi Doug, you are good... Your Maytag Neptune door latch assembly was replaced with a one piece assembly and does not have the defective 12002535 wax motor in it.

To see if your Neptune is affected by the defective door latch wax motor, see

In addition, when your Neptune starts screaming when high speed spinning it is time for bearings and a seal kit... I can save you $800 to repair your Neptune or even more if you would have decided to replace it with a new front loader set... You can also rent the famous tony tool which makes changing your bearings a snap! It even includes a DVD. Of course, I need the DVD back when you return the tool kit ;>)

See for details.

My maytag Neptune, Model MAH5500BWW, Serial 9505891. Has Lr alarm code. What could be wrong with it?

Hi Jerri, If the belt is on then it sounds like your motor control has failed. See for more information on testing the motor drive system. Jeff
