Try pressing "end of cycle" button; wait a couple of minutes to open your door, do not force. Then shut door to restart your new cycle..........

Rate me pl. if helped. If not click 'thanks for trying', this prob will come up for others to solve.

Washer won't start, stopped at beginning of cycle and the door lock flashed. after about 5-6 flashes the display read: FL. Tryed to start again, unplugged it for a while several times. nothing happens....


FL:
Failed to lock.

Trigger:
Door lock monitor switch in door lock mechanism unable to communicate to control board the door is locked.

Action to be taken:
1.Check wire connections in harness leading from machine control board to door lock mechanism.
2.Check solenoid and door lock enable switch in door lock mechanism.
3.Replace responsible component.

If you need to open the door.
Maytag's Neptune washer has a latch and lock on the door. If this lock fails to open when the cycle is finished. You can rescue your clothes by:
1) Remove the bezel from the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser.
