After switching on the machine try pressing 'end of cycle'. Then wait for a couple of minutes to try the door.

Washer will not turn on.


If the Add A Garment light is on, try this: 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.

My washer machines door is locked wont open. And won't wash the clothes in them


  • Unplug your Maytag washing machine for 30 seconds.

  • Plug your washing machine back in, and after 30 seconds, push the "Pause/Cancel/Stop" button two times. Choose a wash cycle.

  • Press the "Start" button until the wash cycle begins to ensure that the washing machine is functioning properly

    My maytag front louder door won't lock or even stay shut?


    it sounds like you have broken the switch which keeps the door latched when not in use as well as locks when the washer is started. These latches often fail when someone forces the door open to add more clothes without pushing the pause button AND waiting until the "locked" light goes off. Older children and teens and yes, uninformed men, are apt to do this. You will need a repair person.

    Maytag MAH8700 - NP error code - Door locked and won't open


    I don't know if you are aware of this, but Maytag did a recall on this washer in March 2007 where there was a risk of water leaking into the control panel and shorting out the board. You can follow this link to see if your washer was affected based on the serial number:

    http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07135.html.

    Here is a link to your user manual to see if it offers any help. The only thing I saw was to use the Cycle Selector button to unlock the door.

    http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/DC6802030B01.PDF

    I found this on the Maytag site:

    Is the door locked and the Add A Garment or Add Clothes light off?
    If the Add A Garment or Add Clothes light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Off or 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.

    You could also try their customer service number to see if they have a script for this problem: 1-800-688-9900

    The only other solution I can offer is to disassemble your washer if its that urgent and you can't get a repairman out there.

    Door lock doesn't release automatically; clothes still very wet


    Hello,

    You need the Factory Repair Manual for your Affinity Washer. There is alot that can go wrong with these machines and you will need to run the washer through its diagnostics.

    Here is a Link where you can Download the Affinity Washer Repair Manual

    Thanks
