The washer was starting spin cycle. It stopped & started huming. The door won't unlock. It has water in it. unplugging hasn't changed anything.


If it has water in it it may not unlock the door, it depends on what type of door lock is fiited as it may be a pressure type. If you can get the outlet hose out and lower it below the level of the drum to drain the water that is in it then the door may open oncethe pressure is gone.

My Maytag Neptune stackable model number mle2000ayw wont spin nor will the door lock light go on


Hi,

If the door lock light is on then is might be the "door lock enable spin switch" the plunger at the opposite end from the wax motor is not fully depressing the switch.

In the stackable it is just behing the door lock.

Remove the two middle covers (2 white phillips screws and one hex head screw on the middle of lower cover by the wires)to test place a few layers of masking tape on the end of the plunger and cycle the machine. Might also be a weak Wax motor (dark brown in color)

To be safe replacing both the things would solve your issue,

If you need furthur assistance, You can leave me comment, i may help you

I have front loading Maytag Neptune. Can't get door to unlock. Cycle started, but door wasn't closed properly, signaled "do" and when I tried to open door, it was locked and won't unlock. Have tried...


After getting no response from FixYa, because it told me that my session had ended, and I hadn't even started, I called a local repairman! I had better not be charged for your service, as you site is faulty and gave me no assistance or info, just seemingly took my money.

My maytag front louder door won't lock or even stay shut?


it sounds like you have broken the switch which keeps the door latched when not in use as well as locks when the washer is started. These latches often fail when someone forces the door open to add more clothes without pushing the pause button AND waiting until the "locked" light goes off. Older children and teens and yes, uninformed men, are apt to do this. You will need a repair person.

Maytag Neptune MAH6700AWW cant find door release


thats a good one, lookin up the service manual, it appears that your particular model has a manual release on hte lower section of hte latch assembly itself, and the only way to gain access to it, is to open the door boot/bellow, but obviously with the door locked that's not going to happen, i would try to gain access from underneath but by the looks of it that to is also closed off (solid bottom). id does show a model with a separate access panel(lower 1/4 of front of machine) however i am to assume that your unit has 1 solid front panel no access to remove.sorry i couldnt have better news. And the "pull" in the dispenser is no tere previous neptune frontloaders not pertaining to your machine at all!

Door lock stuck


If the mechanism is jammed, you might have to remove or loosen the entire front panel to reach back to the back side of the lock and work on it.

I can't unlock the door


fencer, you probably have a bad door lock switch. There was a technical bullitin out by Maytag regarding this (TS740). The deal is that the plunger of the switch is depressed but the contacts don't close. The machine control board senses the door is not locked and won't send the signal to unlock it. You can try to put the machine in the service mode by pressing delicates and heavy soils together for 3 seconds. Advance to the board output tests by then pressing rinse. After that press the max extract key to lock the door and the xtra rinse key to unlock the door. See if it works for you. You may want to call Maytag and inquire about the service bullitin, maybe you can get it covered. There is a manual door release in the dispenser section. The pull tab should be toward the front. You may have to remove the screws and remove the dispensor to get at it. Catriver...post back.
