    thanks....I will try this. I pulled the emergency cord and that released the door and allowed the door to unlock. However, I have been unable to complete any other laundry. I will maybe try again with another loac and see if your fix works.....thanks a lot.

The manual says that you should push the on/off button to turn off the machin. Wait for 2 minutes for the door to unlock. Then open the washer door.

Maytag neptune washer clothes staying wet after cycle


Is your door lock light on when machine is in use? I am having the same issue as you and I believe it is because my door is not locking during use.

My washing machine is Neptune. The front door is locked and water is inside with wet clothes.


If you have a Maytag Neptune MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker then your wax motor might be the issue. See www.neptunehelp.com for info on the faulty door latch wax motor and how to fix it.

If unplugging machine does not allow the door to open then remove the 4 philips screws on the soap dispenser bezel ( under lid) and remove it. There should be a colored plastic cord in there you can pull on to unlock the door, It is an emergency pull cord.

Maytag Neptune washer error FL


Hello,

There is a manual door release tab in the dispenser area. You have to take the screws out and remove the dispenser to pull the tab and release the door. This is a pretty common issue, if you haven't yet you should contact your Maytag authorized dealer and ask about a more permanent solution. Hope you can get your clothes out.

Thanks

To Manually unlock the door lock system:

1. Unplug the power cord from the outlet.
2. Remove the front lower kick panel.
3. Reach up along the inside of the front panel and locate the bottom of the door latch assembly.
4. Located on the bottom of the door latch assembly is a tear-drop shaped tab.
5. Gently pull the tab down about quarter inch or until a click is heard.
6. The door may now be opened.

Maytag Neptune - died with clothes inside and door locked


hi there,

sounds like you may have had a power outage or tripped the breaker on the main electrical panel on your house. can you have a look for me please?

if not it's the main control board that is defective.

can you tell me the full model # & serial # (these will be located on your bill of sale, since you can't open the door).

i will check the warranty info and let you know if the board has warranty.

thanks.

My neptune does not extract.  My clothes come out dripping wet.


I am having the same problem, and have found that the door lock light is not on, and that the door lock does not seem to be working. This would keep the machine from spinning.
Is your door lock light on?
