SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Washer Door Locked

Hi,

NOTE:Unplug it first..

If you open the detergent dispenser and feel along the front edge behind the removable cup there is a coloured cord usually red or green in colour this in an emergency door release, by pulling on it firmly the door will unlock.

Goodluck..

SOURCE: Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off

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 maytag neptune washer will stop working and

HI, this error code is signaling an issue with the fill actions. Your washer seems to be having problems when it try's to fill the tub with water.

First, make sure there's water getting to the washing machine. Make sure the water faucets are open all the way.Check for kinked hoses as well.

If the hoses are fine and, the faucets are fully open, this will confirm a inlet water valve malfunction. you will need to replace this failed component in this case. it has failed.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune door lock stuck!!!

Try these steps:

1.) Take the washer outside. 2.) Loosen the two screws on the back panel and remove the back panel. The pump sits on the left-side of the opening. There's a black water hose with a metal clamp; 3.) squeeze the metal clamp with your fingers until it's loose enough to slide away from the pump. 4.) Separate the hose from pump and the trapped water will pour out and the door will then open; and 5.) clear any blockage from the drain hose and the pump.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers No Spin Problem


A class suit was filed in the State of Illinois, USA and then later on won against Maytag in 2004 due to the high failure rate of the wax motor used in the door lock mechanism of their Neptune Front Load Washers. The wax motor is used to activate the door lock switch by extending its shaft when a voltage from the machine control is applied across its terminals. Its failure then leads to the breaking down of components in the expensive machine control board. This is the fact that angered the customers which led to the filing of the class suit.

The obvious symptom of a failed wax motor is the inability of the washer to advance to the spin cycle and the door lock lamp is not turned on. The washer stops momentarily at the end of the wash cycle then continue to tumble as the machine control checks the activation of the door lock switch. The control will not allow a spin speed higher than 51 revolutions per minute (RPM) unless the door lock switch is activated by the wax motor. It is a safety feature of the washer to prevent accident due to accidental opening of the washer door during a high speed spin.

Customers who purchased the Neptune Front Load Washers in the USA after April 1, 1997 and before August 9, 2004 are Class members and eligible for the repair reimbursement, replacement cost, or purchase certificate depending on the length of service of the machine. Call up Maytag at 1-888-MAYTAG (1-888-629824) for more information.

The models included in the class suit are as follows: MLE2000AYW, MLE2000AWW, MLE2000AZW, MLG2000AWW (Gas Stack Unit), MAH3000AAW, MAH3000AEW, MAH3000AGW, MAH3000AWA, MAH3000AWW, MAH3000BGW, MAH4000AWW, MAH4000BWW, MAH4000AWQ, MAH4000BWQ, MAH5500AWW, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWW, MAH5500BWQ, MAH55FLBWW, MAH55FLBWQ, MAH6500AWW, MAH6500AWQ, MAH7500AWW, MAH7500AWQ, MAH7550AAW, MAH7550AGW.

My maytag neptune washer will come momentaraly


There is a door locking unit that should lock when you press go. This must have failed. It lives just under the lid in the middle at the front. It is thermal piston, when you press go it gets power and extends. When it hits a micro switch that tels the washer the door is shut and allows it to continue, else it shuts down. To get at it you have to take the front off, leave the door on.

Maytag neptune MLG2000AWW does not turn off at end of spin cycle


d sounds as if your having a timer issue here. not recognizing the end of cycle and entering a new one ( bad timer).. as far as time of unlocking this is normal, theres a wax motor holding the door shut for i believe 3 min's.. and the water sloshing sounds is also normal they use a "water filled" balance ring around the perimeter of tub to help with the overall balance of machine

Maytag neptune washer MAH-1 start button turns off, does not spin


Hi!

Is it pumping water? If not then pump is bad.
Is the door locking? If the door will not lock, the washer will not enter a spin mode. See if the lock light is lite on the console.

Check for continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch when the switch actuator button is pressed in. If there is no continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch, replace the Door Lock Switch Assembly.(Check for 120 vac across the Door Lock Wax Motor)

Please rate this solution and ask for further clarifications if needed.

Thanks

Maytag neptune mlg2000aww door will not lock or spin


Removing the top cover of the dryer, you will find, in the front right, the machine electronic control board with a burned resistor. This resistor burns up when the washer lock motor fails. The lock motor and control board will need replacing. Parts cost will be around $220.00.
