First of all, it's under warranty. So I would contact Maytag for a free fix.
For an out of warranty reply:
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

It's usually a broken tab on the upper switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate
just out of position.
This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
While replacing the switch holder is the preferred solution, using hot glue to secure the switch to the holder is much easier and quicker. Just be sure not to let the door be slammed from now on.

My Kenmore Elite microwave (don't have the model number in front of me) also mysteriously locked its own keypad (we were sitting in an adjacent room, heard a strange beep, and got up to find the LED reading "Locked."). I pressed and held down the Stop/Clear button for ~10 seconds and it returned to normal.
