SOURCE: washer door pops open during wash cycle

Start the washer in a cycle. When the door locked light comes on, before unit gets to full of water, see if you can pull door open. If so, you probably have a broken latch. The wax motor is activating the switch, but latch is not actually closing. There was a door latch upgrade for some of these models.

Clean out your filter after ref. to user's manual. Try some WD40 on the door mechanism (on machine), lock & unlock door 5 or 6 times while machine is off.

SOURCE: washer will not spin out water but turns during wash cycle

Try cleaning out the trap. It is located under the door and can be accessed be removing three screws at the base in the very front of the washer. The trap is white and screws to open. Watch out though, because if the washer is full of water it will come spilling out! With the trap removed, you should also use your finger to feel the opening of the pump to the side. I found a few bobby pins in my pump, and once they were removed it worked again!.

    Maytag neptune washer clothes staying wet after cycle


    Is your door lock light on when machine is in use? I am having the same issue as you and I believe it is because my door is not locking during use.

    My washer is spewing water everywhere sometime during its cycle. The floor is soaked! It seems to be coming from the soap dispenser area. I cleaned the dispenser really well but still water everywhere.


    Hi,
    The only way to determine where the problem lies is to take off as many covers as possible then run your usual wash cycle. The problem could be a leaking or blocked pipe or a rubber seal that leaks etc etc. Have somebody in the know open up your machine to determine where the leak comes from.
    Best wishes,

    Im having trouble with my maytag neptune tl washer it wont finish the spin cycle


    Please see the following Whirlpool / Maytag service manual for Neptune washers.
    https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/dc59d905140253e18525729c005765f4/$FILE/Maytag_Neptune_Washer.pdf

    On page 3-1 the manual explains that if the washer shuts off during the spin cycle, the problem points to a weak spring in the door lock mechanism.

    "Shuts OFF In The Middle Of The Spin Cycle:
    During the spin cycle, the machine control
    monitors the door lock mechanism to ensure
    the door is locked. This is done through the
    door lock enable switch. During "lock mode,"
    the shaft of the door lock mechanism is
    pressed forward by the door lock wax motor,
    and the shaft presses in the button of the door
    lock enable switch. If the machine control
    board sees the switch OPEN during the spin
    cycle, the machine control board will automatically
    shut the washer OFF. This is caused
    by a weak spring in the door lock wax motor.
    Replace the complete door lock mechanism.

    Sometimes there is water that fills in my washer after I use it. It does not happen right away but by the next day. I don't know the model but I do know this is an old washer....gold....I have had it for...


    Q - My washer seems to keep filling  with water, the water keeps coming in the washer and going out the drain without the washermotor running.
    A - This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

    Sounds like the door lock unit isn't locking and may be bad. It is also a possiblity but not likely that there could be a problem with the computer board but start with the door lock unit first

    No Locked Light


    does the washer actually go into high speed spin? if not the wax motor in the door lock may be no good. that would prevent the door from locking and the indicator on the display would not light.
