Question about Maytag Neptune MAH7500WH Front Load Washer

Door won't open

Turned on washer, gave message FL then do, tried to open door. Can't get it open. After reading about this machine on .net, I don't want to spend a couple of hundred dollars to get it fixed, but I do want to get my clothes out. I tried unplugging it and changing the cycles.

    Ok, so now I have applied the emergency door open fix and have opened the door successfully. Thank you for this important information.  I am still puzzled why I am getting a (do) signal in the dsplay followed by the (FL) and a low pitched beep once a second. Does the signal code denote what the problem is underlying in this crummy machine?

If you open the detergent dispenser and feel along the front edge behind the removable cup there is a coloured cord usually red or green in colour this in an emergency door release, by pulling on it firmly the door will unlock.

Maytag Neptune code fl shows on display


The FL code indicates that the door failed to lock when you closed it. Try opening and closing the washer door again. Make sure that there is nothing in the door area that could block the latch or keep the door ajar. If the error recurs, the latch may be faulty.

If the door is actually locked and giving the FL code, the latch has a problem. You can try power-cycling the washer (unplug for a while) or setting the washer to pump the water out. If these steps don't help, you need to order a replacement latch assembly. Depending on your washer model, you may have a manual pull cord to unlock the door. Look under the bleach and fabric softener compartments after opening the dispenser..

I hope this helps. If your washer is under warranty, contact Maytag. Otherwise post a comment with the model number of your machine for a source for a replacement latch assembly.

I'm getting an "FL" message.


FL - Failed to Lock
Door lock monitor switch in door lock mechanism unable to communicate to control board the door is locked.

1.Check wire connections in harness leading from machine control board to door lock mechanism.
2.Check solenoid and door lock enable switch in door lock mechanism.
3.Replace responsible component.

You can get it at a local appliance parts dealer near you or online and to replace it you will need to open the door, remove the screws that run though the hinges into the cabinet and the ones straight across on other side, pop the top of the front panel loose and take off, remove the screw at the top of each side and raise the top panel and swap it out; check this DIAGRAM PARTS LOCATION

Hope this helps.

Code reads FL Door will not open. Ran spin cycle on empty to get water out after well went dry.


FL code indicates that the machine failed to detect that the door was locked. Perhaps the controller became confused when the fill failed (due to well). Try unplugging the machine for 15 minutes, and then plug back in. You may get the PF (Power Fail) code, but that is normal. You should be able to start a new cycle from this code.

If the door still will not open, please post back.

Washer won't start, stopped at beginning of cycle and the door lock flashed. after about 5-6 flashes the display read: FL. Tryed to start again, unplugged it for a while several times. nothing happens....


FL:
Failed to lock.

Trigger:
Door lock monitor switch in door lock mechanism unable to communicate to control board the door is locked.

Action to be taken:
1.Check wire connections in harness leading from machine control board to door lock mechanism.
2.Check solenoid and door lock enable switch in door lock mechanism.
3.Replace responsible component.

If you need to open the door.
Maytag's Neptune washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
1) Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.

FL message


Is it leveled properly? Is the door latched all the way? Is the water turned on at the valve? Unplug the unit for a few minutes and during that time, unhook all in/out valves and make sure drain hose is in proper position and down in to the drain hole far enough. Plug unit back in and try that.

The Timer Window shows FL and the washer stops after filling.


I unplugged the washer for 20 minutes, plugged it back in, the same FL message appeared, so I slammed the door (as a last effort to attempt to overcome the problem of door failing to close before I would decide to call a repairperson). Following the sound slamming of the door, the washer has worked just fine through the last five loads.
