SOURCE: Maytag Neptune front loader door latch won't release

rewpa, 98% chance the door latch has stuck in the locked position. Yes, follow Maytags suggestion to access the "rip cord" for the door latch... (this is the mechanical override for it) to get the door open. After it's open, run another load of wash and see if it happens again. If it does, it is the door latch assy. that's the problem. BTW, the door lock light is activated by a switch in the door latch assy. There's a "motor" in the assy... it's made of WAX! Yes, a "wax motor". Before the computer goes into spin, it sends 120V to this motor. The electricity heats the wax and it expands. As it expands, it pushes a plunger forward. This plunger trips both the door lock AND the switch. This sends the signal to the door light AND the computer saying "I'm locked! Go ahead and Spin!" When the cycle is complete, the computer drops the voltage to the wax motor. The wax cools off and contracts. This retracts the plunger... opening the door and shutting off the light. So... if this light stays on, the plunger is still extended and can be overridden using the rip cord. If this happens again, let me know and I'll step you through disassembly and replacement of the wax motor.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune model # mah6500aww: makes banging noise and causes machine to move

A loud banging sound in the pipes is usually caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The banging happens as the water hits the valve that prevents it from going any further. If the kinetic energy is great enough, it can actually cause a pipe to burst or explode at the end. If a valve is closed near the beginning or in the middle of a system, the water keeps flowing after that point, and it can actually create a vacuum. This vacuum can cause a pipe to implode if the stress is too great. Roaring type noises may be coming from a spin bearing. This bearing probably had the grease washed from it because of a tub seal leak.
Squeaking sounds in a new washer are usually caused by the new parts getting broken in, and will usually go away after several washes.
The sounds of water gurgling, slurping, or sloshing during a spin cycle are usually caused by the drain pump pushing the water out of the washer tub.
Too much water pressure can cause a whistling or squealing sound. Adjust the hot and cold intake water valves to relieve this sound.
Metallic clinking sounds during spin or agitation may be the result of drive train components meshing during speed changes or after a pause.
Swishing or swooshing type of sounds may be caused by water and suds trapped between the tub and basket during a spin cycle, and will usually clear up as the water is drained from the washer

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW has dc code won't complete spin cycle

Hello julygirlrn,
Take a look at this post and see if you or someone you know has some very basic mechanical skills and can do a clutch replacement or roller clutch bearing re-lube. The dc/UC unbalance errors are a very common failure issue with the FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW clutch.
I have put together a step by step process to perform a clutch replacement process, this repair will get your $1000 machine back in service with a $50 dollar clutch replacement. Worse case you can give the repair person some facts and maybe control cost and speed to repair. I believe you will find you will pay $350 - $400 to have it repaired.
If you pay more than $50 dollars for the clutch you are throwing money away. Clothes Washer Clutch - 25001169
You can try this test just to rule out the TDS as the failure point almost all the time dc/UC unballance errors are related to clutch issues with this machine model.
Tub Displacement Sensor Diagnostics check.
It is possible the Tub Displacement Sensor may have failed try this check which is in the Troubleshooting guide stored in your washer console or refer to the SM.
Enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”
Press the Super Wash key display reads “in”…something like that.
Press Delicates the Display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).
Push tub to the back right corner of the machine the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). Release tub and the display will show “UC” (Unbalance Closed).
Press Hand Wash.
Pull tub to the front left corner while pushing the tub down the display should change to “UO” (Unbalance open). If you get these results your Tub Displacement sensor should be OK and I believe it’s not the component failure producing dc/UC errors in spin cycle. I would remove the clutch for inspection and re-lube. There is a more technical troubleshooting method to check Tub Displacement Sensor in the Troubleshooting guide and Service manual.
We can turn on the drain pump in Service Mode to pump out excess water, let me know if you need help with that. The link I have in this post will send you to the Service Manual on this site in PDF format. I believe a lot of folks toss this $1K machine where a $50 dollar clutch replacement or an even cheaper Oneway roller clutch bearing clean up (if the bearings are rust free) will get the machine back in service.
Post back if you decide to DIY the fix and need help.
Good luck… Rich

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.

How do I get the door to open when still locked after normal cycle stopped with 1 minute left?


Try putting it through another cycle and see if it is still going to stay locked. That would seem like a timer problem. The door should only be locked normally, as I see it, when there is power applied to the locking solenoid so it should not remain locked with no power. You might call a maytag dealer and ask a sales or service person about this also.

Washer Flashing Error Code ND; door won't open after turning washer off


Hello,

The ND error code means NO DRAIN. ,

The usually reason the door remains locked once the cycle is over is because the filter screen on the drain pump is blocked so not all the water could drain out...the door lock is tied into the pump and until the pump tells the control board that the wate r is out the door will not unlock. This tip i wrote will show ya how to take apart the washer to clean the filter on the pump.

My oven door will not shut, i have a code of F9 showing


it MAY be your oven door lock is jammed..
I found this information for you:
1
  • Wait at least one hour after the oven has completed a self clean cycle to attempt to open the oven door, as the oven remains locked until the interior temperature has cooled sufficiently.

  • 2

    Press "Cancel" and wait a few minutes if the oven is cool and wait until at least one hour has elapsed since the completion of a self-clean cycle.

  • 3

    Open the oven door and check the door lock switch. Move the switch back and forth with your fingers to return the switch to the original position. Check for dirt or debris that may be causing the switch to stick or lock and clean as necessary.

  • 4

    Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is not resolved, as the door switch may need to be replaced.



  • Perhaps you can get some advice from Maytag

    Call the dealer from whom your appliance was purchased or call Maytag Appliances Sales Company, Maytag Customer Assistance at 1-800-688-9900

    May tag Neptune showing codes


    Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

    Do
    Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.

    FL
    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.

    Sd
    The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.

    PF
    The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.

    Nd
    The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.

    LO
    The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.

    Lr
    The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

    NF
    The "nF" code appears when the washing machine has tried to fill with water and has failed. Verify that the inlet hoses aren't kinked and that the faucets are fully open.

    Od
    The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

    Other Codes
    * If your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays any codes that are not listed above, contact Maytag Neptune Priority One Service for assistance. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824


    Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

    If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??


    1. 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.
    2. Do
    3. Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.

    Washer was flashing suds code followed by F21 code. I was able to use the drain & spin setting but now it won't open or reset even when I uplug the machine it just keeps flashing the minuets to...


    Hi, "F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. This LINK explains.

    Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

    NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
    If you need to open the door but it remains locked, you can first attempt to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the door remains locked, you can use the manual release to unlock and open the door. The LINK explains how.

    NOTE: The Maytag Epic is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these procedures will apply to your washer.
