Machine stopped in middle of cycle ,wash flashing something on screen, tried to restart wont't run water could it be out of level for it not to run water

It's probably flashing an error code. Write down the code and look it up in the owners manual or online to find out what the issue is.

Opened door after hitting start and now wont run

When you open the door in the middle of the cycle the machine will detect that the door switch sensor is open and suspend the cycle. When you try restarting the machine with a new cycle the control detects that there is water inside the machine and may prompt additional fault codes.

As you found out disconnecting and re-applying power most of the time is enough to restart operation. If you restart the cycle after power down the water in the machine will be drained in the initial part of the cycle and operation will follow as usual.

Restart off

4.4 Restart Feature
If a fault occurs in the machine, the diagnostic system will detect it. However, instead of displaying
a fault code immediately, the machine will try to restart. If the fault was only of temporary nature,
the machine will restart and finish the cycle. If there is a continuous fault the machine will try to
restart a number of times.
This process could take up to 8 minutes depending on the type of fault. After this, if the machine
still cannot restart, the fault code is displayed and the machine will beep continuously. The number
of retries will depend on the fault that it has detected, however the maximum number or retries for
any one fault is 32 times.
The restart feature is turned on when a machine leaves the factory. For servicing we strongly
recommend that this feature be disabled.
To turn the restart feature on follow the procedures below:
1. Enter diagnostic mode (Refer to Section 4).
2. Press WATER LEVEL DOWN so that the low water level LED is lit.
3. Press POWER to turn the display off (the 5 leftmost wash progress LEDs will be flashing).
4. Press POWER to turn the machine on.
5. The machine can now be tested on any cycle.
To turn the restart feature off, either repeat the steps above or switch off the power to the machine.
The restart feature can be permanently programmed in to the machine's memory. When in
diagnostic mode press and hold ADVANCE down at the same time as pressing WATER LEVEL
DOWN. A long beep will acknowledge the setting has been retained in EEPROM. Press POWER
to retain selection as with size switching. To remove from the permanent memory, repeat the
above procedure.
Note: This feature is designed as a service aid only and should be left on in the customer's
home. To return to normal operation, and to reset the restart feature to the factory setting,
switch the machine off at the wall or disconnect from the mains supply.
4.5 Recycle Feature
The recycle feature, when enabled, will cause the machine to continuously repeat the cycle that
has been selected. At the completion of the spin cycle the machine will power off briefly then
power back up again and will start the cycle programmed.
This feature would be useful to help identify an intermittent problem, and would be best used if the
machine had been taken back to a workshop for service.
To turn the recycle feature on follow the procedures below:
1. Enter diagnostic mode (Refer to Section 4).
2. Press WATER LEVEL UP so that the Medium water level LED is lit.
3. Press POWER to turn the display off (the 3 rightmost wash progress LEDs will be flashing).
4. Press POWER to turn the machine on.
The machine can now be tested on any cycle.
Note: This feature is designed as a service aid only and should be OFF in the customer's
home. To return to normal operation, and to return the recycle feature to the factory
setting, switch the machine off at the wall or disconnect from the mains supply.

F14 fault on Bosch Maxx 7 I have low water power, could this be the problem? Machine bleeped at me then stopped. I have turned my machine off, but the washing cycle had not finished.


A power glitch may cause this error. Try unplugging the Unit for two minutes to see if that fixes the error.

You may need to restart wash cycle.

If you get the FL how do you get the door to open??

  1. Your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
  2. Do
  3. Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.
  4. FL
  5. The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
  6. Sd
  7. The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.
  8. PF
  9. The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  10. Nd
  11. The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.
  12. LO
  13. The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.
  14. Lr
  15. The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional.
