These units seem to all use the same control board and have the same issues. the intermittent and door lock issues are random and frustrating. it will take a person that wants to fix it. see this link for what to do. I have other links that explain the same.

SOURCE: Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off

Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
I have tried to work with a few folks on this issue never received feed back to resolution see this post. I feel the issue is caused by one of three possible issues.

A stuck key issue/defective Spin Cycle key making constant contact forcing the Key/LED to cycle thru the Spin Cycle settings. Under normal conditions if you press and hold the Spin Select key it will cycle thru the settings, yours has a mind of its own (defective issue).

A false signal from the Control Board for the Spin Cycle.

A corrosion path issue at the Membrane Pad ribbon cable socket connection between pins 5 and 4. See page 20 of the SM button functionality “Spin” key.

Try to verify that the spin cycle membrane key is not stuck/defective signaling the Control Board to cycle thru the spin settings. I have not experienced this issue but let’s try the Membrane Pad Test
to get a start point. See the Service Manual page 15, I have modified the process to make it a bit more understandable at least for me. Make sure the two digit display is not On or Lite.
Press the off button first so there is nothing displayed in the Two Digit display of your FAV6800AW.

Now Enter / Exit Service Mode


To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or until the control beeps. While in Service Mode, pressing the Presoak key will start a membrane switch check that verifies switch operation.

All the LEDs (except Presoak ) can be toggled or slewed by pressing the key associated with the LED or set of LEDs. Do not press the Presoak again during this test.

Press each key once and only once including the Signal Key the on side and the off side, also the UP and Down Arrow key of the LED display. All keys (including the OFF button) must be pressed within 5 minutes for this test to pass. “PA” will be displayed for five (5) seconds once all keys have been pressed and the test is completed (more like PA will be displayed for only a few seconds on my FAV6800AW). Following 10 seconds of inactivity at any point, this test will exit without any display. Let us know the results.

See my additional comment this board has message limit issues.

This sounds like the electeronic is faulty. Do this. Turn off the machine and unplug it from the power outlet for 5 minutes. Then plug it in and select a cycle. Make sure the water is on and try the spin only cycle first. if it wont spin only then there is a problem in the controller or the motor circuit. Thsi could be something simple like the unbalance switch or something worse like the motor or controller. ensuder the bowl is central. Pull the bowl to the centre. if rthe button you refer to is an overload button then the motor is faulty. A motor overload button measures the motor current in the neutral leg and if it is too great then it pops and stops the appliance.

Maytag Frontloader (Perf series) brand new Agitator off axis


Okay! We just fixed this problem on our washer. First, be safe and be sure that the electrical cord is unplugged. Then you want to take the lid panel off of your washer. Then you'll feel around under the base of the agitator/washer basket. You should notice that its feet sit inside huge springs which are fixed to the base of the machine unit. Determine whether any of your basket feet are disloged from their spring and re-insert. Make sure the fit is good or else you might have the same problem again. After you reassemble, plug in the machine and try a test spin without any clothes. Then try with a smallish load.

Hopefully this helps.
