Usually, if there is a problem with your washer or any other home appliance, you can try to troubleshoot the source by going through the user manual that comes with every electrical appliance and in many cases, you can even solve the problem yourself without giving a penny to any electrician. The Maytag Neptune washer launched in to the market in the late 1990s and became a hit right after its release because of the energy efficient technology that was introduced in it for the first time. Along with that, unlike the old washers, this one worked silently i.e. even though its capacity was larger than most of its previous versions, the machine had very low noise level while it was washing. Over the past few years, people have had minor problems with the washer that could easily be resolved at home.
For example, if your machine is not switching on, it could be because the door is stuck or maybe because you might have stuffed in too many clothes. Checking the external power can also be a good option. In many cases, the washer does not have a problem but instead the circuit breaker of the house may be causing a problem. In addition to this, if the water hose of the machine have something stuck in them, it will not start. Therefore, you need to make sure that all hoses are cleared for easy flow of the water.
Although, the noise level in this model of the washer is very low but it can happen sometimes that, your washer starts producing weird sound when switched on. Before you decide to take the washer to a mechanic, you should check a couple of things yourself. In most cases, the machine starts vibrating intensely when it is being operated above capacity i.e. putting too many clothes in it can be causing the problem. Similarly, too few clothes can also damage your washer, it is best that you put in a reasonable number of clothes to wash at a time. The problem can also occur if the washer is kept on an uneven surface, try to put the washer a little above ground level on a smooth surface to increase its efficiency.
The best thing to do is to wait a little if you see a problem, like if the door is jammed, the machine will most probably unlock it automatically in a couple of minutes. In addition, if the washer stops working between cycles, it will automatically start in sometime because of its in-built mechanism. If the problem persists, you can also check the manual for Maytag Neptune washer troubleshooting.
