    the door is simply JKL:LKJ! i am so sick of it not closing properly and having to adjust the door every time it closes to get it to latch! Is there any compensation from MAYTAG for this problem, the advice above is great but will not work for me. if you have a website or email address for this faulty part where MAYTAG ASSUMES THE RESPONSIBILITY THEY BY ALL RIGHT SHOULD FOR THIS FAULTY PART-- would someone please submit it?
    thanks!

Faulty Latch ,, i would order and replace the latch assy, you acess the latch by removingthe 4 screws in the dispensor assy, the n remove the door, andthe 2 screws opposit teh door hinge. then the front "u shaped" panel will come off and then just 2 5/16" screws on either side will release the main top assembly allowing you to tip it backwards and gaining acess to the latch assy

Not locking


I had this problem also with my Maytag Neptune TL. The door lock would click multiple times before displaying the FL code. I was able to fix this by removing the left door look(the one with the door close sensor) and cleaning the 2 metal pones on top of the left door mechanism, which had rusted and no longer was able to since the door closed. I use a nail file i sure either that or sandpaper will do. After that it went through the whole cycle without stopping or displaying the "FL" code.......hope this helps

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.

"FL" light


The "FL" error code indicates that the door is not locking. The buzzing sound you hear is most likely the door lock trying to lock the door. It may only be a matter of aligning the door so that it locks properly. Otherwise, you may have a faulty door lock that needs to be replaced.
