Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Can I eliminate or at least shorten the delay on the door lock feature?

Adding in the extra handful of clothes after I've already started my Neptune is frustrating due to the fact that it locks so quickly after starting, and the delay to unlock takes what seems like forever.....Might as well go get a cup of coffee and drink it while you wait.

If the old wax door lock motors have a questionable life span anyway, is there any way to just eliminate them, or at least shorten the unlock delay on a new one? My machine is the MAH5500AWW

Broke handle off of siemens TOP WD1200 champion, the settings are all in chinese and my clothes are locked inside. help?


This is a common and easily fixed problem. The door should NOT be opened after the wash is completed. You have to wait for AT LEAST 2 minutes to try the door, do not use force. There is a built in mechanism for most front loaders to delay the door opening, so be patient.
If you have used force you have already damaged the door lock, so replace. You are lucky if the door can be opened after the lock sign goes off - otherwise you just have to change the door lock.

The door is locked on my maytag neptune washer with clothes in it. I am leaving town and the clothes will be ruined if I don't get them out. I already looked for the string to release the door. No...


Try putting it in a drain cycle this may help The string should be in the front right corner of the dispenser it looks like a thick fishing line If you find it pull it but be careful the washer may have water in it so have some rags handy.

Finished, wash and spin lights flashing. Door


I just had this problem! To get the clothes out, open door manually (follow answers on other threads here about opening toe panel and gently pulling down on door release). But as it turned out, I didn't need to remove the clothes, and now my washer is working again.

A local repairman gave me this advice over the phone. Make sure dial is switched to off. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. The second time I tried this, my washer worked afterwards. I've done several loads today with no problem.

Can't interrupt the washing cycle on coin operated Mah21pddww


Unplug the washer, wait three minutes for the door to unlock then do what you need and plug it back in. Should still have the time left on it that was there when you unplugged it.

Unusual display on panel (padlock) machine can't be programmed door is not locked however


i just went through the same thing.......you need to hold the option and extra rinse buttons simultaneously for 6 seconds, this will unlock it.....so turn the machine on and press the two icons, dont worry about the beeping and flashing after 6 seconds the padlock symbol will go and you can use the machine as usual.....i wish they put that 'minor detail' in the manual...cheers!!

Detergent goes where?


MLG2000A - Maytag Neptune Super Stack SL-3
1 - Select Wash/Rinse Water Temperature
2 - Select Options (Max Extract, Extra Rinse, Signa)
3 - Select Cycle
4 - Load the Clothes Washer (add detergent on top of the load in the tub, and additives [fabric softener, bleach] in their dispensers).
5 - Start the washer.
This is according to the owner's manual I have. Has worked for 9 years for me.

Adding clothes after wash started


It is best to finalise what clothes you want to wash, regarding front loaders. Or if you stop the machine, you have to wait for a couple of minutes for the door mechanism to release the lock, before u try the door. At times the door won't open for there is water in there; & if you force the door you'll damage the door assembly. So a lot of caution here!
