I am unable to unlock the washing machine door and do not have the user manual. I need to unlock the door so that I cna close the door and run a lkoad of laundry.


You need to PUSH IN the program knob (top right) (pointing it to a dot between programmes to be sure but that might not matter) and wait for a minute. Manual is here: http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90256-1.pdf

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.

I have a musty or moldy odor coming from the washing machine. Is it possible to have some clothing in between the drum and the outside walls of the washing machine


I don't know if that is possible but trying running just bleach water through and start leaving the door open after taking laundry out. If it is unable to dry out then it will build up mold and mildew.

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.


The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

I am in the middle of a load of laundry and it has stopped and the error code reads "suds". I am unable to get the machine to work again. How do I fix this?


When the door finally unlocks run bleach and hot water through a load and then use only 2 Tablespoons of HE detergent. No matter what. You are either using too much soap or your not using HE detergent.
