    I tried unplugging - I'm really frustrated with this washer. I have to slam the door shut in order for it to not beep incessantly and prevent my wash load from starting.

    Same problem as the others. Machine locks up for no apparent reason and have tried unplugging but to no avail. Tried to obtain a repair manual on this machine or even some advice from Maytag but can't find a web site for the co.

A POSSIBLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM...

Try pressing the End Of Cycle Signal button for about 3-5 seconds until you hear a confirmation beep. That solved it for me as I brain-farted and thought that button only locked the signal level, and not ALL buttons/functions.

Posted on Jul 11, 2008

Press and hold the unlock button for several seconds. that will unlock it. However, mine still won't start in any mode.

How do I use the Child Lock option on Samsung WF-B1456GW?


Hi there,

You can use the child lock feature in 2 ways.

1. To prevent operation of the washing machine when no wash cycle is running

To set this feature, switch the machine on using the POWER button at the top-left of the control-panel. Next, press and hold both the SPIN and RINSE buttons for about 3 seconds - until the child lock light indicator on the control panel illuminates. All functions of the washing machine will now be disabled apart from POWER ON/OFF until such time as the child lock is deactivated.

To deactivate the child lock, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons again until the child lock light indicator on the control panel goes out.

2. To prevent any tiny fingers from tampering with the machine while a program is running.

After pressing the START/PAUSE button to start the wash cycle, press and hold the SPIN and RINSE buttons until the child lock light indicator illuminates. All buttons on the control panel will now be disabled until the child lock has been disabled. When the wash cycle has finished, you will need to switch the child lock off again to reactivate the buttons. Once you have finished using the washer, reactivate the child lock again before switching the power off as above.

The feature can also be used when using the delayed start feature, but needs to be set after pressing the START/PAUSE button.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

My machine is showing the code FL machine has problems locking. How do I resolve this problem


Your Maytag Neptune Washing Machine displays error codes, also called "help codes," to identify specific problems with your washer. Once you close your Maytag Neptune's door, the machine locks the door, goes through the selected wash cycles and unlocks the door when the laundry is finished. Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.
The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.
Door lock monitor switch in door lock mechanism unable to communicate to control board the door is locked.
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.
