The "Open" door sensor, isn't "Connecting" Unless it is close enough, IE: The door pushed in so that the sensor & activator are close enough to work., .The sensor has to be adjusted, or replaced if that's at all possible.

Maytag Neptune washer machine won't spin or fully drain


    • 1 Open your home's breaker box and flip the circuit breaker switch to "On." If it is already set to "On," flip it to "Off" and then back to "On" to reset it. A power surge may have interrupted your wash cycle so the drain/spin cycle never actually started.
    • 2 Move the washer away from the wall and straighten the drain hose if it is twisted or turned in a way that makes it difficult for water to flow through it. Replace a kinked hose with a new hose.

    • 3 Push on the washer door to make sure it is fully closed. The washer will not drain or spin unless the door is closed tight. Press the "Start/Pause" button after you close the door.
    • 4 Wait for about 30 seconds after you press "Start/Pause." The washer will not operate until it has been able to fully lock the door and restart the drain process.
    • 5 Run the clothes through a complete cycle again, making sure you use cold water if there are a lot of suds in the washer. Too much soap in the washer can make it hard to drain. Use high-efficiency or low-sudsing detergents on subsequent uses.

Fridgidaire frontloader washer stuck on pause


Hello Angela Gilmer - Usually when "PAU" displays on the screens, it indicates that the unit thinks that the door is not securely latch when you started the cycle, or the cycle has been interrupted. Try pressing "PAUSE/CANCEL" or "START/PAUSE" once to resume washer. If proves to be ineffective, try reprogramming the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. If fault reoccurs, then it typically means that the unit has a faulty door latch. If you aren't certain that the door is properly shut, then the latch assembly may need replacing. Contact a professional to assist with the repairs.

Doesn't close tight enough to start


It sounds like your door-closed sensor (a microswitch) is out-of-adjustment. If you can locate this sensor, try gluing a tiny piece of plastic or wood to it. This will do the same thing as pushing really ******* the door and allow your dishwasher to operate normally.

My fridgidaire front loading washer just recently stopped working on the spin cycle, it doesn't even work on the spin/drain cycle.


More than likely a bad door switch, as it won't go into the spin if the board doesn't like the reading it gets from teh switch. They fail quite often. Part number is 131763202

Washer won't start cycle after door is closed


Try taking the top of the machine off and checking all of the electrical connections, including the one to the door lock. I have to do this about once a month with my machine and it seems to work.

Washer turns on then goes off


The door switch usually causes this to happen. There are 2 switches inside. The door will lock but not trip the other switch. Try replacing the door switch first.
