I have a front loading Neptune washing machine. I bought it second-hand. The problem is that the machine will turn off before it goes to through the cycles. I have placed the switch on #2 rinse. The water came in, but after a couple of seconds, the door locked light came on, the water stopped, and the on light went out.

This is a common issue with earlier Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers due to a momentary loss of motor control neutral feed from the power cord and result to the shutting down of the washer in the middle of the cycle. The neutral feed line needs to be checked for poor connection. Check the tip I posted regarding this problem and how to address it.
The sloshing sounds you hear are supposed to be there. Actually, it was there when you first purchased the washer and had never used it before. It's part of the balance system. When the machine goes into high speed spin, the balance system kicks in. The water portion of it is forced outward by centrifugal force. Now when the machine slows down and stops, the water settles back down so that when you reach in and turn the drum by hand, you can hear it sloshing about.
First you must check if there is power in your wall socket, then turn on the machine, try to gently open the door (the door has a catch). If it still does not open, press the 'end of cycle' button.

some of the early washers had problems with a weak or faulty motor . take front panel loose and look at motor board it may look burnt on some of the resistors or look at the clear fuse at front of board it may be burnt if so use a motor/board conversion kit p#12002039.
