SOURCE: Door will not unlock

It sound like a lid switch problem .A defective lid switch could prevent you to open the door physically and as well will not move to the unlock light.The switch located inside the machine near the door frame. You should open the top panel (open 2 screws and then slide it out) then you will have an access to it . You can test it by multi-meter (it is an on/off switch). In case of a deffective switch, it should be replaced. Be aware that you should remove machine's power cable before starting your test !!!! Good luck !!!

SOURCE: Maytag 3000 series locked close and inoperable

if there is still water in the machine then you need to drain the water.
this can be done by using a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove the water that way. this will normally unlock the door

also check the wiring to the drain pump this does effect the door. you may aslo try pushing the clear or cancel button for three to five seconds.

i hope this was helpful to your problem.

Maytag 3000 series front load washer has code F29. What does hat mean?


That error is a control board error. You might want to try unplugging the power for 5 minutes to see if it resets. If you using the pause cancel and start sequence don't work then you need to replace the control board.

Maytag maxima codes F06 and E02: Tried doing a spin/rinse/drain on an empty machine. Timer seems tpo be working but cannot hear water filling or barell spin. tried to shut off and door is now locked.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
POWER/CANCEL press for to cancel the error codes.
First to unlock depending on model. There will be a pull tab either under the lower kick panel, behind the filter cover, or under the top panel. Pull this tab to unlock the door. Now you can remove the clothes and water. Refer to the owners manual for the location of your emergency door pull tab.

Door Switch
You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace.
Power Cord If the washer won't start, check to be sure there is power to the electrical outlet for the home. If that is OK, the power cord itself might be defective. This is rare. You can check the power cord with an Ohm meter for continuity.+fuse thermal +c.breaker

My magtag 5000 series washer is flashing error code F21, It was in the middle of a wash cycle and now the door is locked and it won't open. How do I at least get the door open. I have unplugged the


Unplug the washer. Then plug it back in and press the button that turns it off. This should unlock the door. Same thing happened on mine and there was a kink in the drain hose. Once I unkinked the hose, unplugged it, plugged it back in, turned it off, then I was able to run a drain & spin cycle to get the water out of the load that was in the washer. I then ran a full wash cycle (they'd gotten stuck in the first drain & spin cycle of a wash) and everything seems to be fine now.

Hi, "F21" is a Long Drain error code. This indicates that you have an obstruction in the drainage system. More than likely you probably have a clog in the drain pump. This LINK explains.

Included is a follow-on link that explains how to check the drain pump to clean. You may also have to remove the inlet hose that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the drain pump. Debris can commonly clog in this area as well causing the drain cycle to fail.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.
If you need to open the door but it remains locked, you can first attempt to unplug the washer for at least 30 minutes in an attempt to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). If the door remains locked, you can use the manual release to unlock and open the door. The LINK explains how.

NOTE: The Maytag Epic is manufactured by Whirlpool, so these procedures will apply to your washer.

Error code F29 continually reappears on our washer which is only 4-5 months old. We have tried to troubleshoot the problem, but have had no success. HELP!!!!!


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. F29 is a door unlock error, this error occurs after the washer has made 6 attempts to unlock the door. Usually this occurs when the door lock mechanism is broken and/or the door switch/unit lock has failed. To resolve this issue you’ll need to check the door switch, door lock mechanism and the wire harness between the central control unit & door switch, replace the part that has gone bad. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
