If you remove the bleach/softener tray, you can reach towards the front of the machine and there is a plasitc cord. Pull this and it will unlock the door

    WOW, PULLED THE CORD AND DOOR OPENED. NOW HOW DO i MAKE THIS MACHINE DO ITS JOB. i PRESS START, IT CLICKS TO LOCK THE DOOR AND THEN UNLOCKS IT AGAIN AND WON'T DO THE WASH. I HEARD THAT THE REAL REASON WHY THE MAYTAG REPAIR MAN HAS NOTHING TO DO IS THAT EVERY PROBLEM HE HEARS ABOUT HAS NO SOLUTION IN THE MANUAL OR IN HIS TRAINING. HE JUST TELLS THE CONSUMER TO BUY A NEW ONE AND LIGHTS ANOTHER CIGARETTE..

Help.....I have one of these wonderful maytag front loader washers too mah5500b. It seems I have an on-going issue with it either locking me out or my loads in! The plastic pull worked to release, however, I am now suffering with my machine not locking at all! The panel reads "it appears your door is not locking call for service" Maytag service support is aweful!! Can you assist? Thanks
