I would say that you have damaged your door lock. Most appliances have a door lock or a mico switch. this is the first port of call for the power to supply the w/machine.Safety measures??? go back to basics,is the door locking, any power to the going to the electronics. a door. Change faulty components???

SOURCE: Control Locked

this is a child safety lock feature to keep them from turning on and off the machine, you must hold down the cycle end button for 3 seconds to unlock the machine, you will find these instructions labeled right on the machine and in your owners manual.

Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

SOURCE: my front loader washer door will not open a lock

there is a chance that there is something stuck inside the drain pump.use a shop vac attach it to the end of the drain hose remove all the water.unplug the unit and plug it back in this should unlock the door. check the drain pump for foregin objects such as small nails bobby pins,drill bits anything that could stop the impellar wheel from turning.if there is nothing in it then you might have a bad drain pump.

How do you take the front off to acess the door switch?


Hello,
Click this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Maytag-Parts/Washer-Parts/Model-MAH8700AWW/3048/0153200?searchedModel= MAH8700A&blt=
This is the schematic for your entire machine. You would first remove the top panel by unscrewing the screws that hold the panel to the cabinet on the back of the machine. You would next slide the top panel towards the rear of the machine and remove the top panel from the machine. You would next unscrew the screws holding the control in place and remove the control as well. After you remove the control you would next remove the screws holding the from panel to the cabinets frame. Open the door and there are a couple screws to unscrew on the same panel where the door seats. Some do also remove the door as well due to awkwardness and weight issues. You would then remove the rubber boots attaching retaining ring using a flat screwdriver to pry over the ring over the front panel lip. Unseat the rubber boot termed as bellows and move the front panel diagnonally towards you. You can then access the door switch assembly and replace the assembly. When putting the unit back together install the front panel screws and the screws along the inside of the door before seating the bellows and the retaining ring. The retaining ring is the most difficult part of this job and reseating the ring and the bellows is the most difficult of this job and may require an extra set of hands to hold the ring on one side while using a screwdriver or putty knife to work the ring back on to its properly seated position. If you have any further questions message me back.
I await your reply
Thank you,
Rick

My Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer will not open. Locked inside of the chamber is a load of laundry. How do I open the door without damaging the mechanism that keeps it closed?


As I sit here with my Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW torn apart, I can tell you it is impossible to unlock and the 800 number is no help. They tell you to unplug it for 5 minutes. Some web posts talk about a "magical release cord" under the top cover but it does not exist.

Our maytag neptune mah8700aww front loader will not drain and unlock the door. what do i do.


The drain pump os obviously either blocked or gone. Lie the drain hose on the ground to drain by gravity. Then have a look at the pump. This may need to be taken out as I'm not sure if there is a pump filter on this particular model. The door is designed to not open with water in the drum.

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH9700AWW


I have a Maytag neptune mah8700aww
With mine the large grey rubber seal that seals at door slipped off! When this happens if you do not put back on correctly it will leak or even poor out the front center bottom of the door! My husband fixed it. But it still leaked really bad! I just took a couple of min. to refit the seal and it does not leak at all now! maybe your seal is not placed around the edge correctly! as it is easy to place it wrong! good luck!! keep my email address if I was helpfull!! We can always share problems and solutions for our neptunes in the future ! good luck
