Some have a pull strap under the lock that is accessed by removing the lower panel and looking up.

Manual Door Unlocking of Maytag Neptune Front Load Washers


Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers are equipped with emergency access cord that can be used to unlock the door when the door lock mechanism fails to unlock it after a wash load is done. The emergency access cord is located under the top cover and can be accessed through the dispenser bezel. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off to access the emergency access cord. Carefully pull the emergency access cord steadily then open the washer door.

The pulling of the emergency access cord overrides the wax motor and the sliding gear is pulled from right to left away from engagement with the rotating gear. It allows the rotating gear to release the wire loop of the door.

The failure of the door lock mechanism to unlock the door is due to a failed wax motor in the extended position. This requires the wax motor to be replaced. Access to the door lock mechanism for the wax motor replacement requires the removal of the front panel and lifting the top cover. Click here for the detailed front panel and top cover removal procedure.

Maytag washer will not open


If the machine didnt finish the cycle due to the pump being clogged the door will remained locked also if the lock mechanism went bad, the machine will stay locked. Remove the top of the machine by taking the screws from the top back out. Once removed look down the right hand side and you'll see the lock mechanism, usually with a plastic tab you pull to manually release the lock. On some machines it maybe be required and sometimes easier to remove the bottom kickplate and access the lock assembly from there

Water is leaking from the bottom of my washer, it is maytag neptune ,front loading washer


Check the door boot (typically grey rubber bellows looking ring around the door opening that keeps the water in the tub from leaking) for cuts.

See the manual:www.applianceblog.com/manuals/MaytagNeptunenew.pdf

2605dn says "replace supplies" points to black


You might have an issue with the cartridge lockers. Be sure to clean cartridge contacts and HV pins in printer. Doesn't help? Do like this. In the printers menu, under system set up, then print quality, then replace supplies there you can choose override out. Print a status page and check status for the cartridges, if the printer don't prints in override mode you have a brooken cartidge locker. In that case, remove all toner cartridges and check the lockers by moving cartridgedoor in and out, do all works the same way or is any of them different?

Neptune washer not starting


open panel at rear of control panel usning phillips head and 5/16 the board attached to that panel will probably have a burnt r14 r1 or r21 resistor. this has been an ongoing problem with this model even a class action lawsuit.(lawsuit expired 9/2005) you can change the board but this will eventually happen again maytag directs you to do a full conversion kit rebuild about $400.
