Maytag Neptune code fl shows on display

The FL code indicates that the door failed to lock when you closed it. Try opening and closing the washer door again. Make sure that there is nothing in the door area that could block the latch or keep the door ajar. If the error recurs, the latch may be faulty.

If the door is actually locked and giving the FL code, the latch has a problem. You can try power-cycling the washer (unplug for a while) or setting the washer to pump the water out. If these steps don't help, you need to order a replacement latch assembly. Depending on your washer model, you may have a manual pull cord to unlock the door. Look under the bleach and fabric softener compartments after opening the dispenser..

I hope this helps. If your washer is under warranty, contact Maytag. Otherwise post a comment with the model number of your machine for a source for a replacement latch assembly.

Dishwasher door won't close

First make sure nothing is blocking the door. Make sure it's not hitting the side of your cabinets. Next, try removing both racks and try closing the door. I'll bet it will close now. If not, then you may have a door hinge or latch problem.

Door has been locked shut for 5 days with clothes inside.

Please AVOID answering questions of which you know NOTHING.

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.
3. Reach your hand up inside the washer behind the front casing on the right-hand side. This is where the door latch assembly is located.
4. At the bottom of the door latch assembly is a small pull tab. This is the manual release for the door. Pull the tab straight down and the door will come open.

My kenmore front loading washer's door won't close. I think the lock is on and blocking it. Any ideas how to fix this?? Thanks ahead of time!!

Hi- First I would try unplugging it for a minute and seeing if that will reset the door latch. It is possible that the door latch is broken and is blocking the strike from going in (is the strike broken on the door?). It is also possible that the controller is activating the door latch constantly for some reason. Best to call a Tech out to take a look at it. Good luck.

Door won't latch. Model SHX68M

The most common cause of your stated problem is that the latch or the latch catch has slid over a little bit so it doesn't match up as it needs to. Typically, there are two screws there that you can loosen to reposition the latch. After it is in the right spot tighten the screws back down and you will be in business.

Door won't fully latch, light stays on, dryer won't function

There is typically a small plastic piece that catches the door and keeps it latched. The door has the male side and the frame of the dryer has the female side.

Either the male part on the door has broken off (or bent) or the the female part on the frame has broken. Replace this part and you'll be back in business. It is typically called a door latch and it comes with both the male and female parts.

Here is a picture
of a typical one.
