Manual Door Unlocking of Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers


Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers are equipped with emergency access cord that can be used to unlock the door when the door lock mechanism fails to unlock it after a wash load is done. The emergency access cord is located under the top cover and can be accessed through the dispenser bezel. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off to access the emergency access cord. Carefully pull the emergency access cord steadily then open the washer door.

The pulling of the emergency access cord overrides the wax motor and the sliding gear is pulled from right to left away from engagement with the rotating gear. It allows the rotating gear to release the wire loop of the door.

The failure of the door lock mechanism to unlock the door is due to a failed wax motor in the extended position. This requires the wax motor to be replaced. Access to the door lock mechanism for the wax motor replacement requires the removal of the front panel and lifting the top cover. Click here for the detailed front panel and top cover removal procedure.

Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers Front Panel and Top Cover Removal


Most of the internal components of Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the machine.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

Remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the machine.

The internal components of the machine can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers (Maytag Neptune Dryers). The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

How do you get to the wate level pressure swith on a maytag neptune front load washer model #mah55flbww


First make sure the washer is unpluged. Remove the two screws on the back side of the top cover. Then you can slide the top cover off by pushing backwards and lift. Now you will expose the controls. One of the controls on the right side of the washer that has a clear 1/4 tube hooked up to it is your pressure switch.

How do you get to the latch ? The back part of the top of the washer lifts up but can't get the front to lift.


The front is probably held down with some snap clips, try wedging something in the gap and bumping it.

How do you get the front off the maytag mav8601aww?


If you have the top loader, there is 2 clips on the left and right wher the front panel joins the top section. Push a flat blade in one side while trying to lift the top at the seam, it should pop open. If you raise the top there is 2 screws top left and right of the front panel inside remove these and lift the front panel up and away.
