SOURCE: Maytag Neptune washer error FL

Hello,

There is a manual door release tab in the dispenser area. You have to take the screws out and remove the dispenser to pull the tab and release the door. This is a pretty common issue, if you haven't yet you should contact your Maytag authorized dealer and ask about a more permanent solution. Hope you can get your clothes out.

Thanks

My Maytag Neptune washer has "np" flashing. The door is locked and the cycle is not complete


Are you sure this is not an nd and not an np flash code? If so then the code stands for no drain, likely something is clogging the washer pump inlet.

I'm getting error code FL when trying to start my washer. It will start to fill with water and then error. Please help! It seems like the door is locked.


Hi

A Door Lock Error occurs if the door cannot be locked. It will try to lock it six times before displaying the error code. It has happened because Door lock mechanism is broken or removed from door. It may also happen due to Door switch/lock unit failure. To resolve the issue follow these steps---
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check door switch/lock unit.
3. Check the wire harness connections to the door switch/lock unit and Central Control Unit (CCU).
Hope this helps...Please post back if you need more information.

My machine is showing the code FL machine has problems locking. How do I resolve this problem


Your Maytag Neptune Washing Machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
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.

LID WON'T LATCH ERROR CODE FL


With that code FL “ Failed to lock” I would start looking at the lid latch mechanism. See this link from another site for lid latch problem.

If you want to try to repair or get a better understanding of how to diagnose and repair this machine take a look at the service repair manual.

I hope this will help with your decision to try a repair or replacement.

If you are not getting any error codes pertaining to the door lock and you are getting wash and rinse then the problem would seem to be that the water is not draining. Machine will not go into SPIN if the pressure switch senses that there is still water in the basket.

FL fault code means door failed to lock. Could be misalignment between the lid and the locking mechanism. Try the service mode and see if you can get the door to lock. Otherwise you may need to replace the lock itself.
