Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
The door is locked and won't open and the door lock icon isn't even lit up when the door is locked. The letters keep blinking the letters "FL" on the timer screen after about a minute after I try to start or pause the wash cycle? What do I do?
Fencer, you probably have a bad door lock switch. There was a technical bullitin out by Maytag regarding this (TS740). The deal is that the plunger of the switch is depressed but the contacts don't close. The machine control board senses the door is not locked and won't send the signal to unlock it. You can try to put the machine in the service mode by pressing delicates and heavy soils together for 3 seconds. Advance to the board output tests by then pressing rinse. After that press the max extract key to lock the door and the xtra rinse key to unlock the door. See if it works for you. You may want to call Maytag and inquire about the service bullitin, maybe you can get it covered. There is a manual door release in the dispenser section. The pull tab should be toward the front. You may have to remove the screws and remove the dispensor to get at it. Catriver...post back.
