Hello - First, does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, you possibly have a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Try setting the cycle to spin only and verify if water pumps out. From what you have described, if the door lock assembly has been replaced and issue continues then the unit could possibly be experiencing an issue with the timer, control board not communicating correctly or a faulty pump. In this case I would contact a professional to move forward accurately since it is not recommened to be used if it is providing a burnt smell to properly diagnose and repair the washer.

SOURCE: buzzing - will not spin or drain water

This noise is probably the pump trying to start but will most likely be obstructed.Drain the machine manually by lowering the drain hose into a bucket or bowl and then remove blockage.

E23 error code means the drain pump relay on the control board failed or wire off pump. You already replaced control board so check the wire at the pump and make sure it's secure.

SOURCE: washer wont spin, smells like burning glws1649

Burning smell could be the windings in the motor. Better not to use it and have it looked at. If the smell is a rubber smell then the belt is jammed while the motor spins. still needs intervention as it can catch on fire and you will have a bigger problem than the one you have now

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

Door will not close


Hi,

Make sure you are allowing the washer to completely finish its cycle before opening the door. It is normal for the door to lock at the end of a cycle. The locking mechanism keeps owners from opening the door before all of the water has been drained. If the door on the washer is locked, select the "Drain" or "Spin" options on the front-load washer. This will completely drain the water from the system and unlock the door, allowing you to open it.
Thank you !!

My hotpoint Aquarius 800 WM12 has served me superbly until yesterday. The door will not open and I have washing inside. It finished on a spin and the dial has returned to the correct upright position. I...


To make sure it is not due to any water left that you cannot see, lay the drain hose down to floor level, and drain off any remaining water. The door locks works on air pressure, so will not release until all water has gone.
If it still does not open, then it could be the door release mechanism is faulty, or the belt come off.
This being the case, then the only way to open the door is from inside the washer.
Remove top cover, and reach down to the door lock and pull up on the lock from the bottom.
Hope this helps.
MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF.

LTF2940ES3--Washer drains, but will not do a final spin.


Hi. You have done a great job diagnosing your unit. This unit is designed to not allow a full scaled spin out, if there are issues with the on-board door lock mechanism. This is standard safety equipment for most units. Once this damaged door lock mechanism is replaced, the washer will operate properly. The full scaled spin out will return.

Im having trouble with my maytag neptune tl washer it wont finish the spin cycle


Please see the following Whirlpool / Maytag service manual for Neptune washers.
https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/dc59d905140253e18525729c005765f4/$FILE/Maytag_Neptune_Washer.pdf

On page 3-1 the manual explains that if the washer shuts off during the spin cycle, the problem points to a weak spring in the door lock mechanism.

"Shuts OFF In The Middle Of The Spin Cycle:
During the spin cycle, the machine control
monitors the door lock mechanism to ensure
the door is locked. This is done through the
door lock enable switch. During "lock mode,"
the shaft of the door lock mechanism is
pressed forward by the door lock wax motor,
and the shaft presses in the button of the door
lock enable switch. If the machine control
board sees the switch OPEN during the spin
cycle, the machine control board will automatically
shut the washer OFF. This is caused
by a weak spring in the door lock wax motor.
Replace the complete door lock mechanism.
