When your washing machine breaks down, it can be a great inconvenience, and you may need to perform a few troubleshooting steps yourself before you call in the emergency electrician. Taking the chance to troubleshoot your Maytag Neptune washer on your own can save you money. It will help you avoid having to wait for electricians to arrive, or taking time off work in order to get this repair done quickly. If you can't live without your washer, then you need to assess the machine for yourself, and work out what parts might need to be replaced.
Troubleshooting According To the Problem
The first step that you will need to take when troubleshooting your washer is to identify exactly what the problem is. A dishwasher can fail in a few different ways, including not draining correctly, causing flooding, leaking water through perished pipes, or not spinning or draining. The trouble is, if you are an amateur then the end result, water on the floor, can look very similar for all three of these major problems. You will need to investigate your washing machine to find out exactly where the water is coming from, and what area of the washing machine you need to focus on when troubleshooting.
Solving Basic Problems
If you start with the spinning motion of the washer, then you can quickly eliminate electrical faults. For example, if the machine has stopped suddenly in the middle of the cycle, or is not spinning or draining, then you should initially check that there is power coming into the unit. If the washer is on, then you need to check that the door is correctly closed, and sealed all the way round. You should also clean out any drain hoses and ensure that they are fitted correctly to ensure that water can easily escape the machine.
Getting Replacement Parts
The final stage in any attempt to troubleshoot a Maytag Neptune washer is making sure that you can get parts which fit your device. For example, if the seal around the door has perished and this is preventing the machine from working correctly, then you need a replacement part. If you have other pipes or tubes which are damaged and are therefore preventing your washer from working, then these also need to be replaced.
