I have a maytag neptune washer that is about 3-4 years old. It stops several times during a cycle. We have to push the start button to get it going again. Then it stops again during the next phase of the cycle. Please help!!!

We too have a neptune and have the same problem from time to time. Ours is caused because our city had old mains and they have a lot of sediment. The filters in the intake lines are probably full of sediment and the neptune will stop if the incoming water flow is not sufficent.

Turn off your water valves and remove the hoses at both ends. There is a screen at the washer in the valve inlet. I find that taking a spray bottle and putting it on stream will let you wash the sediment out. Have a towel underneath to catch the water as the valve is horizontal. Also check the line at the valve as some will also have a second screen there.

This can also be caused be sediment when your water heater is starting to rust. Do you have brown hot water after you shut off your water and turn it back on?
