Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Door does not close tight enough to engage the automatic lock mechanism - the machine makes several attempts to lock and then the FL clode (failure to lock) code is displayed.
I had this problem also with my Maytag Neptune TL. The door lock would click muptiple times before displaying the FL code. I was able to fix this by removing the left door look(the one with the door close sensor) and cleaning the 2 metal pones on top of the left door mechanism, which had rusted and no longer was able to since the door closed. I use a nail file i sure eaither that or sandpaper will do. After that it went through the whole cylce without stopping or displaying the "FL" code.......hope this helps

Hi. this is a failed Door lock mech that should be replaced asap if possible. This will run you about 55 to 60 dollars tops.
It is a good rule to replace the door lock hoop assembly along with the door lock latch assembly at the same time. make sure the alignment it correct during the installation.
