Question about Maytag MAH8700A Front Load Washer
Please read whole description... my clothes are stuck in the wash, and the door is ocked. the error code said nd.. we tried the whole press chimes and extra rinse for 3 seconds and then temp and soil level.. it said pa... the door will still not open, and now it says U629 if i dont get those clothes tonight, im goin to work nakad!!!!
After following all the suggestions in the Guide, (press chimes and extra rinse for 3 seconds etc.) all it did was gave more codes not listed in the guide.I tried unplugging it for 15 minutes and plugging it back in. I moved on in the guide and checked to see if the hoses were kinked or obstructed. Then AFTER UNPLUGGING the washer I removed the back panel, it was very easy, only 2 screws. I looked at all of the wires and where they connected and made sure they were all "plugged in all the way". One wire was connected but not "all the way snug". I pushed it snug, never thinking that this could make any real difference, replaced the panel , plugged it back in an it now works as always.

I found the manual release but had to take the washer apart to get to it. You actually have to get where you can open the front of the washer so you can reach a black pull ring about where the locking mechanism is on the latch side of the door. Once you pry the front open you can reach it with a bent hanger or something like that. I found it, pulled it down and the door was unlocked. Saved some money on the repair too.
