Door won't lock

If the interlock isn't working it may not allow the machine to start. If you can open the door when it should be locked it's probably a faulty interlock.......Nomess

No spin

If anyhow the drain pump is blocked the spinning will be blocked. Check for a forrign object in the drain pump. If you can feel/hear it buzz (very quietly) while it should be pumping out it might be jammed up with something. That however is kind of rare with the angled tub the Neptune uses.
Are you sure the machine is actually not pumping out, or is it possible its just turning off in the rinses?
Reason I'm asking is the control will shut the machine down if its taking too long to fill up. Many times it will fill fine for the wash fill, but because the rinse takes twice the ammount of water it activates the system and shuts down while its half way filled. Look for a slow cold water fill for that problem.

Is the door locking in the spin? One very common problem on the older 3000 and 4000 series machines is the R11 resistor on the machine control board bruning out leaving the door lock inoperative. If the door won't lock, it won't spin. I do believe, however, the machine will still pump out. But many times what happens is the pump removes all the standing water, but without spinning everything in the tub stays soaked. The saturated clothing drains the water out and then leaves a few inches in the bottom of the tub.

If you have the newer style Neptune (with the control panel on the front of the machine) only the top paragraph applies.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

The door interlock could be faulty. The only way to open the door if the door interlock is faulty is to remove the top of the machine, after turning it off at the wall and pulling the plug out of the socket, and locate the door interlock from the inside. There should be a metal "slide" which can moved back to release the door catch. The interlock could be warped from getting hot, which will make the slide almost impossible to move. Remove screws holding the interlock from the front panel and from the inside pry the interlock from the catch. Replace interlock.

the micro switch which is part of the door interlock may be at fault, & need replacing. Or a wire may be broken/burned off

 in the interlock. Or it may just be stiff, try spraying it with WD40 (not whilst the power is on!!)
