Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer
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..

Maytag Appliances are ****!! Don't buy Maytag. Spent $2500.00 in 2005 on Maytag Neptune washer and dryer. They have been nothing but trouble. Washer has water running in tub constantly. Recall on ground and recall on footing. Dryer making loud noise when drying clothes.The Maytag man is dead and gone.

this is joyce:
have you tried just unpluging the unit from the wall and waiting for 1 min and repluging it into the wall, this usually resets any codes. if not I will be happy to research this for you, infact I am doing it now while we speak, you try the simple method first. and let me know how that goes. my name is joyce

“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.
