Door won't open on my front loading maytag washer

I started a load and then paused it to add something to it and now the door will not open. I can hear the motor, but I never get the loud click that opens the door. I put my sons lucky basketball socks in there and I need to get them out today (this morning).

Try unplugging machine and then plugging back in see if that resets it. Also if you still cant get it unlocked there is a emergency latch release. Remove the 4 phillips head screws holding dispenser trim/lid. Now look in in front of (closest to door) now look for what appears to be a weed eater line (it should be green) pull gently and it should release door. Hope this helps get to your sons socks.

I have a maytag 2000 series front load washer and the door is stuck. Is there any way to manually open it? Its a MHWE250XL model.


For MHWE200X series (could not find specifics on the 250XL)
Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin?
Select RINSE, DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door should unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Clothes" light on?
Press START/PAUSE once. The door should unlock.
If the issue is not that ... but indeed having a stuck latch then there were references that the method below would work on some Maytags:
UNPLUG the washer and remove the bottom front service panel. Carefully reach up along the inside of that front panel and pull down on the manual release tab that is on the bottom of the door latch assembly.
If your machine does have a bottom service panel ... then there should also be taped somewhere inside the machine the technician service paper work which can usually be helpful also ...
Helpful?
Good luck on your troubleshooting!

Why won't my maytag neptune front loading washer will not start?


Check out the door switch to make sure that it closes when you latch the front door. If it does not close the machine will be inoperative - safety measure.

MOLD REMOVAL FROM WASHER RUBBER BOOT


Try this:

Run an empty load and as soon as water has filled and the washer begins to run, open the washer door (probably have to pause the washer via the control panel) and add 3 - 4 cap fulls of regular bleach. If you don't have regular bleach, you can try vinegar. After cycle completes, open washer and wipe the entire gasket with an old towel.

When washer is not in use, prop the door open so the inside can fully dry.

Please report back here with the results and if you are still having problems, we can take the next steps if needed.

I have front loading Maytag Neptune. Can't get door to unlock. Cycle started, but door wasn't closed properly, signaled "do" and when I tried to open door, it was locked and won't unlock. Have tried...


After getting no response from FixYa, because it told me that my session had ended, and I hadn't even started, I called a local repairman! I had better not be charged for your service, as you site is faulty and gave me no assistance or info, just seemingly took my money.

My maytag front louder door won't lock or even stay shut?


it sounds like you have broken the switch which keeps the door latched when not in use as well as locks when the washer is started. These latches often fail when someone forces the door open to add more clothes without pushing the pause button AND waiting until the "locked" light goes off. Older children and teens and yes, uninformed men, are apt to do this. You will need a repair person.

Push start different sound water may start may not start pause


I would check to make sure the connectors to that door lock are all connected. If they are it's probably the lock/switch mechanism itself. Wow I just checked and they are about $120. The p/n is wh10x10006 You can google around for the best price. Good luck!

Maytag MAH8700 - NP error code - Door locked and won't open


I don't know if you are aware of this, but Maytag did a recall on this washer in March 2007 where there was a risk of water leaking into the control panel and shorting out the board. You can follow this link to see if your washer was affected based on the serial number:

http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07135.html.

Here is a link to your user manual to see if it offers any help. The only thing I saw was to use the Cycle Selector button to unlock the door.

http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/DC6802030B01.PDF

I found this on the Maytag site:

Is the door locked and the Add A Garment or Add Clothes light off?
If the Add A Garment or Add Clothes light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Off or Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.

You could also try their customer service number to see if they have a script for this problem: 1-800-688-9900

The only other solution I can offer is to disassemble your washer if its that urgent and you can't get a repairman out there.
