Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Maytag 3000 series washer Cannot get model number or serial number because door is locked.
the lock to this front loading washer will not disengage, and when I try to power it on, I get 3 quick beeps. This occurred after it went into spin cycle, and the legs were not level and it went into a thunderous vibration. By the time I got to it, it was shaking itself out of the washroom. I pushed the pause/play button to pause it, and it continued to spin until it finished the cycle after which, I disconnected the power. I tried to open it, and discovered it was still locked. I plugged it back in, lock will not disengage. I push the power button and all I get is 3 quick beeps.
If you unplugg the machine for thirty minutes and plugg it back in it should release but it may lock back up after running a cycle it sounds like something got jammed in the wax motor that won't let the door release. Before unplugging it you coul also try holding down the pause cancel buttons for 60 seconds if this does not work unplugg it for 30 minutes and see if it releases.

Try pushing in on the door slightly incase something is in the way inside the washer. If that does not help, you will need to manually open the door with the emergency pull cord. Once the door is opened you will need to have the door lock assembly checked to determine the cause of the failure. If the door latch needs replaced there are 2 available depending on the serial number. Part number 22003593 price $65.86 is for series up to 10, 22004435 price $87.48 is for series up to B4, compare to the first 2 digits of the serial number to choose the right part number.
Please see the images provided below for more details & instructions on replacing the door lock assembly if needed.
