Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Door will not open on my MAH5500B front washer

I put in a load of laundry and saw the water coming in but I am not sure if it ran completely through a cycle. I tried to open the door and it would not open. It made a beep noise and the panel said (do) and then Fl.
I pushed the pause button and waited many minutes and it still would not open. The door lock lite is not on, but the door is not opening. You can open it a little but it catches, I am assuming on the door latch or lock latch. Please get back with me as soon as possible as the laundry is piling up.

Sincerely,
Peggy

You can take the 4 phillips screws out of the corners of your soap dispensor, the lid of the dispenser willlift up and youll see wrapped around in there eitehr a floresent green or orange plastic wire. that is a manual release cord for the latch assy. this will allow you to get your clothes from the machine, form there look into why the latch never released

Why the water wont come in the washer ,and the door stayed lock


Because the cycle hasn"t get to the point yet were the water need to pump in to the washer so you have to leave the washer on to work it self. u might have mistakenly stopped the washer yourself after u turned it on or something else is wrong and u have to give us some more info on what's going on . Now let just try this and see if ur washer will work.
Let restart the whole process again, the normal way u start ur laundry,
1, Turn washer off ( Like you're done washing )
2, Now put a new load into the washer, check all button to make sure they are in the right position then turn washer on.
Still not working. Then we need some more info or you need to call someone to take a look at it .

I have an IQ touch front load washer. lately I have noticed a mildew smell coming from the clothes and drum after washing. i have followed the manual and completed the refresh and comlete cleaning...


Water can remain in ANY washer after the load is done. With a top-loading washer, it's easy to leave the lid up so that the water evaporates. With a front loader such as yours, however, the open door can take space in your laundry area, so we usually close the doors. I suggest that you take a dilute solution of chlorine bleach and water and put it on a disposable cloth and wipe down the inside of your washer as well as the areas around the door itself and the part of the washer that the door closes onto. Once you've done this, leave the door open until the smell dissipates OR overnight. If you will get into the habit of leaving the door open for a couple of hours after you're done with your laundry, you will probably solve the problem.
I really hope this helps. If it does, please come back to Fixya and rate my solution.

Hi! I have a Maytag Neptune front loading washer machine. On a few occasions I have found a small amount of water in the drum before starting my weekly laundry. Today when I went to start my laundry...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a water control valve not closing completely- its no power/fail position is closed.
Whichever it is, hot or cold, needs replacing!
Service call ;-0(
Good luck,

WAsher not working


FL means 'failed to lock' the door didn't lock, so it didn't complete the cycle. Sometimes it's just because the door didn't shut completely or you may have a bad door latch assembly, or worse case, a bad control board. First try unplugging it for 5 minutes, then try starting another load making sure the door is closed completely, if that doesn't help you'll need to open it up to test the door latch.

Burning Smell - smoking coming out of it


I believe we tracked it down to the pressure switch mounted on the drain pump. The device had a strong electrical burn smell and is positioned where it could easily have smoked the basket. We're putting the washer back into service and if I have a recurrence I will post the information. BTW ... Replacement was simple and the part was $26 including shipping.

Door is locked! Won't open! Laundry is stuck inside!


If the water has not completely emptied, this wont allow the door to open. Check by lowering the outlet hose into a bowl. If a fair amount of water comes the problem is likely to be a pump blockage
