Basic Motor Function Test for Early Model Maytag Neptune Washers

If the drum in your Maytag Neptune MAH3000 or MAH4000 front loading washer isn’t moving at all, the first thing to do is determine if the problem is in the motor or motor control board or if it’s from a control problem somewhere else in the washer. This test will let you do that:

If it does turn out that the problem is either a bad motor or motor control board (most commonly manifested as a burned out fuse on the board) then you’ll need the new, upgraded motor and motor control board set. You can’t just replace the fuse on the control board because the blown fuse is just a symptom of the real underlying problem so it won’t work.

Here’s the upgraded motor / motor control board kit:
