Maytag Neptune Mah8700aww doorlock

The doorlock will not release to let the doorlatch in. I would suspect that I'm very lucky that the door wasn't closed when this part went out. Am I right to assume I need to replace the part that actuates the lock?

You must be on the right track, must be a blockage at the back of the soap drawer, check if junior has posted a toy car! If not turn down the water pressure at the machine stop tap

there is a small button on the inside edge where the door closes, it was broken off since there was nothing there I didnt see it.It was only a hole where the button was.So I had to get a new button and replace it.

Look carefully in the inside front of the dispenser. You should see what looks like a red plastic string. (the type of string used on a power string trimmer) Pull on this string and the door should release.
If you need further assistance please let me know..

SOURCE: Maytage Neptune E3 code - Model MAH8700AWW - machine won't finish cycle

“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

My Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer will not open. Locked inside of the chamber is a load of laundry. How do I open the door without damaging the mechanism that keeps it closed?


As I sit here with my Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW torn apart, I can tell you it is impossible to unlock and the 800 number is no help. They tell you to unplug it for 5 minutes. Some web posts talk about a "magical release cord" under the top cover but it does not exist.

We just installed the MAH9700AWM Maytag Neptune and got an error code OE? We cancelled cycle, etc still getting issue.


The "OE" error code means the control detected the water level in the machine is above the overflow level. According to your description the first failure suspect is the water valve possibly stuck. Perform the troubleshooting as described in the tech sheets.

The front door is locked and cannot be open.


Look for a thin clear looking line in the soap dispenser. Pull the soap dishes out and look towards the front closest to the door. It looks like fishing line but it is the door lock release. Pull it to get your door open and clothes out. Most common part needed in this situation is a new doorlock assembly (part #22003593). I hope this helped.

Our maytag neptune mah8700aww front loader will not drain and unlock the door. what do i do.


The drain pump os obviously either blocked or gone. Lie the drain hose on the ground to drain by gravity. Then have a look at the pump. This may need to be taken out as I'm not sure if there is a pump filter on this particular model. The door is designed to not open with water in the drum.

My maytag neptune washer model #MAH8700AWW door is locked and wont release. Is there some manual release?


there is no "red string" on this specific model. Its really irritating that everyone is saying this when clearly no one can find a red string. Stop giving this advice. From what i can tell so far the release lever is inside the machine and to get to it you have to remove the front panel. My problem now is i cant get the top electronic panel off to get the front panel off... this machine is like a giant chinese handcuff!! I will never buy a maytag ever again!!
